It will be tough for Australia to save match: Murali Vijay

Murli Vijay

At the start of the day, Vijay said the plan was to "just bat as long as possible and take a big lead."

Vijay today slammed his third Test century -- incidentally all three have come against Australia, and he said it felt good to score against the top team of the world.

"I am happy and fine as long as I am scoring, no matter who the opposition is. But it's a good feeling that I am scoring against Australia, they are number one team in the world."

Coming back to his batting, Vijay said he "just wanted to play percentage cricket" rather than trying to be too aggressive.

And about his partnership with Dhawan he said, "We plan to have a big partnership, I am lucky and happy it's going our way."

Asked about his dismissal, he said it was "lapse in concentration" that did him in.

Vijay thought it was not because of the lack of good spinners in the Australian attack, that the Indians have been scoring heavily.

"I think we are just batting brilliantly, that's it."
