Indian Cricket Team would be delighted with the way they fought in the Test Series against Bangladesh. The Men in Blue displayed never to say die attitude and won the series by 2-0. The inclusion of Jaydev Unadkat for the 2nd Test Match proved to be quite decisive as the bowler not only took wickets but bowled impeccable lines & lengths.

The Men in Blue would be thrilled with the way Shreyas Iyer batted in the Series. The right-handed batter showed great mental application in the 2nd innings of the 2nd Test match when the team was in a tough scenario. It won’t be wrong to say that the batter has made a strong case for himself ahead of Border Gavaskar Trophy.

Jaydev Unadkat on his Comeback

Jaydev Unadkat was having an interaction with PTI and was asked about his bowling. “I was trying to extract bounce off length and I felt I could do that. The feeling (when it happened) will remain one of the most special memories of my cricketing career. Getting a Test wicket is something I visualized 1000 times,” said Unadkat.

Unadkat was asked whether there was pressure off replacing Unadkat. “Absolutely not. When you don’t expect things and they happen, I take it in my stride. I just wanted to contribute. If not take a wicket then create pressure from the other end. That was the thought. Domestic cricket has helped me immensely that way. You always have a role to play as a bowler even when you aren’t getting the wickets. You can create pressure and put batter in doubt and other bowlers can capitalize on that,” he added.

Conundrum for Management

The management has got some happy headaches as the rise of Jaydev Unadkat could force the team to leave out a star bowler. Unadkat has shown that he can bowl straight line and length which is priceless in modern cricket where he can cramp the batters for room.

Jaydev Unadkat can be the surprise package against the Aussies in the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023. Head Coach Rahul Dravid will have to be spot on with their selection as India has to win the Series by 3-0 or 3-1 to stake a claim in the World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final.
