Chennai: Determined to make an impression against mighty Australia, Board President's XI skipper Abhinav Mukund said that he and his teammates are looking forward to put up a good fight when they take on the visitors in a two-day warm-up match, starting in Chennai on Tuesday.

"I think making an impression against any side is important and consideration of weak or strong side does not arise. The important aspect is that we do well against a visiting team. We give them a good game but at the same time, we do well, which is definitely going to be growth in our career," Mukund said in the pre-match press conference.

"We want to have a good game and our mindset is that there is no dead rubber. It is not that the Australians get to a good start in the match. At the end of the day, they might look at it as a warm-up match but we are not in the same league to feel that way.
