SQL Trivia – How to convert milliseconds to [hh:mm:ss.ms] format

Today for some reporting purpose I need to convert milliseconds to hh:mm:ss.ms format, i.e.

Hours : Minutes : Seconds . Micro-Seconds

So, I tried to create query below, of course by taking help from internet, so that I can have a sample code handy for future reference:

DECLARE @MilliSeconds INT
SET @MilliSeconds = 25289706

		RIGHT('0' + CAST(@MilliSeconds/(1000*60*60) AS VARCHAR(2)),2), ':',						-- Hrs
		RIGHT('0' + CAST((@MilliSeconds%(1000*60*60))/(1000*60) AS VARCHAR(2)),2), ':',			-- Mins
		RIGHT('0' + CAST(((@MilliSeconds%(1000*60*60))%(1000*60))/1000 AS VARCHAR(2)),2), '.',	-- Secs
		((@MilliSeconds%(1000*60*60))%(1000*60))%1000											-- Milli Secs
) AS [hh:mm:ss.ms]

-- 7 Hrs, 1 minute, 29 seconds and 706 milliseconds

    Syntax error near ‘VARCHAR(2)),2), ‘:’, RIGHT(‘0′ + CAST(((avg(up.modified-up.created))%(100’ at line 5
