Team India opener Murali Vijay turns 29 today (April 1). But the right-hander doesn't regret being born on April Fools' Day, which is sometimes referred to as All Fools' Day

“I absolutely have no regrets being born on All Fools’ Day,” Vijay said.

On the contrary, since this is the start of a financial year, Vijay said he would like to open his account in the new season by scoring maximum runs in the IPL-VI.

He admitted that people try to fool him on this day, but with little success. “People do try to fool me on this day but till date, they haven’t succeeded. However, I do try to play pranks on them,” he added.

Former captains, Ajit Wadekar (India), David Gower (England) and Stephen Fleming (New Zealand) also celebrate their birthdays on this day. “They were all great cricketers and I am proud to be associated with these legends,” Vijay said.
