Disappointed to miss out on a century: Mukund

Dominica: India’s young opener Abhinav Mukund was disappointed after he failed to convert the hard work he put to score 62 into a century.

Mukund, with his half-century, laid the foundation of India’s first innings during the third day of the final Test match between India and the West Indies at Windsor Park, on Friday.

“I am really disappointed. After doing all the hard work when the ball was swinging in the morning, I tried to stick on and then got out to a ball, I must not have got out to many a times,” said Mukund, who led India’s strong reply to West Indies total of 204 all out.

The 21-year-old Mukund got out when he attempted to flick a delivery from leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo which bounced a bit more than he expected and went into the hands of forward short-leg fielder after taking the edge of his bat.

Though the pitch had a lot of bounce but Mukund said it was behaving like an India pitch.

“The first two tracks had a lot of bounce. This one, frankly, looked like an Indian wicket to me,” he said.

“But still planting your feet and playing out forward took a lot of effort. But then I started trusting the wicket and could go forward a lot more than in Barbados.”

Even though the hosts were struggling with injuries and sapping heat on the field, India could not bat freely in the final session. (UNI)
