Cuttack : Opener Murali Vijay warmed up in style for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka by scoring a century to help Tamil Nadu reach 292 for 3 against Odisha on the opening day of the Ranji Trophy Group ‘C’ match.

Electing to bat, the visitors lost skipper Abhinav Mukund (12) early. However, Vijay was involved in two century partnerships, first with N Jagadeesan (88) and B Indrajith (41 batting), which put Tamil Nadu in the driver’s seat. After a cautious start, Vijay came into his own, playing a series of beautiful shots and reached his hundred in a hurry from the mid-80s with a huge six.
