During his decade long international career for India, the Tamil Nadu-based cricketer played some crucial knocks for Team India in red-ball cricket, which will always remain afresh in every fan's memories. Here's a look at three of his best knocks in red-ball format for India. 144 at Brisbane: On 17 December 2014, Murali Vijay scored 144 runs off 213 balls with 22 boundaries against Australia on Day 1 of the 2nd Test at Gabba. Murali shared a century-run stand with Ajinkya Rahane, that helped India reach 311/4 at stumps on Day 1. 145 at Trent Bridge: One of his most memorable innings in overseas conditions was at Trent Bridge. Vijay smashed 145 runs in July 2014 helping India salvage a draw against England. 99 at Adelaide: The right-handed opening batter was unlucky to miss out on a deserving Test century against Australia at the Adelaide Oval on December 9, 2014. He was sent back to the dugout by Nathan Lyon, who trapped him in front of the wickets. During his stay at the crease he added 185 runs for the third wicket with Virat Kohli and brought back India into the game. Notable Mention: The 95 Worth In Gold: In testing conditions, Vijay possibly played one of his best Test knocks at Lord's that helped India to a famous 95-run win against England. Although, the India opener fell five runs short of his century but his grit and determination in the second innings of the Test match laid the platform for India to win the Test match.
