Hyderabad: Indian opener Murali Vijay, who scored an unbeaten century against Australia in the second cricket Test here, said he just wanted to stay at the wicket as long as possible.

"It is always wonderful to get a good start for the team. A partnership like this doesn't happen all the time. We really cherished it. Pujara played very well," he told reporters after he, along with Cheteswar Pujara, added 294 runs for the second wicket on the second day's play at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Sunday.

Vijay was unbeaten on 129 while Pujara was not out on 162.
