- Badrinath, who donned the role of coach (for Karaikudi Kaalai) in the recent Tamil Nadu Premier League-3, was the mainstay of the State Ranji team for over a decade before moving on to play for other sides including Vidarbha and Hyderabad.
- The former CSK batsman said it was his dream to help Tamil Nadu win the Ranji Trophy but it didn’t happen.
- On the Ranji Trophy final in 2004 against Mumbai, he said against such sides one needs to seize the chances that come their way and felt Tamil Nadu could have done better in the first innings of the match, played at the MA Chidambaram stadium here.
