Bridgetown, Barbados: Opening batsman Abhinav Mukund finally came good in his debut series with a gritty 48-run knock in India's second innings of the second cricket Test against the West Indies here on Friday. The southpaw thanked his senior team mate Rahul Dravid for his valuable contribution.
Mukund, under pressure to perform after failing in his debut match in Jamaica and in the first innings here, forged a 63-run stand with Dravid on day four to set the base of a 240-run lead at close of play.
"Having batted with Dravid today, you learn a lot. He is gutsy, he keeps talking to himself in the centre. He kept telling me watch the ball, watch the ball," said Mukund.
