CHENNAI - Tamil Nadu overcame a bad start and, courtesy unbeaten centuries by Abhinav Mukund and Subramaniam Badrinath, ended a truncated second day on 244 for two in the Ranji Trophy Elite Group A match here Thursday.
Mukund scored 108 with the help of 13 fours in 242 balls while Badrinath continued his good form, stroking 106 in 262 balls that included 15 fours.
While only eight overs were possible on the first day, bad light stopped play with 11 still to be bowled on the second day as Railways toiled for meagre returns while Tamil Nadu laid foundation for a big score.

Thereafter, Mukund and Badrinath put their heads down to strike a profitable partnership worth 208 runs so far for the third wicket.
