Chennai: Abhinav Mukund (in pic) struck a fine unbeaten century as Tamil Nadu were sitting pretty at 268 for two on the opening day of their Group B Ranji Trophy match against Saurashtra in Chennai on Thursday.
At close of play at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Mukund was batting on 103 having faced 230 balls and hit 10 boundaries. Giving the 23-year-old company was Baba Aparajith on 40 off 66 balls. Aparajith hit two two fours and as many sixes.
Murali Vijay (62) and Subramaniam Badrinath (56) were the other contributors for the hosts who are looking to bag full points. Vijay had useful batting practice ahead of the Indian team's tour of South Africa.
