The first innings was not completed with rain playing spoilsport and the last day’s play was not the most exciting contest but Tamil Nadu skipper Baba Indrajith feels there were enough positives from the match that the team can take going forward.
Speaking after the day’s play in which he led from the front with a sublime unbeaten century, Indrajith said, “There are a lot of positives to take and this will set the tone for the rest of the tournament. If we had two days, we would have taken the lead as it became easier to score runs on this wicket. We were on top in this match.”
The skipper added that he was impressed with his bowlers’ efforts to restrict Madhya Pradesh to 393 after a good start on the first day on a flat wicket.
When asked if the team had any intentions of going for the target considering a point was any way assured, Indrajith said, “Not at all. You need to take the confidence going into the next game and we can't concede a lead and let them take three points from the game.”
Indrajith who got to his century in style with a six said that he just took a calculated risk to get to the landmark as soon as possible because he was concerned that it might rain.
In the end, it proved to be a right call, like the ones he made in his well-constructed innings.
