Unbeaten centuries by opener Abhinav Mukund and Subramaniam Badrinath helped Tamil Nadu score 244 for two against Railways at close on the second day of their Ranji Trophy Super League Group A match here on Thursday.
With the monsoon weather playing truant making play possible for only eight overs yesterday, bad light forced the umpires to stop the play today after 79 overs.
