Ramaswamy Prasanna, who helped Tamil Nadu post a respectable first innings score of 359, hailed his gutsy knock of 104 as his best ever. "Without doubt, it was my best knock.

I am very happy with my innings. I have to thank my skipper and the team manager to include me in the team. They made me feel very comfortable in the dressing room," said Prasanna, who last scored a ton five years ago against Uttar Pradesh.

The 29-year-old was however, surprised to see Mumbai batters crumble. "We were hoping for a long day. Our skipper bowled superbly as well.

It is a job half done. They have a long batting line-up and we have to get them as quickly as possible. Restricting them below 200 should be good," he added.
