Proud to make it to Indian team before Saurashtra: Unadkat

Cricket News:
Jaidev Unadkat
remembers October 7, 2010 vividly. The 19-year-old boy was amongst the men for whom just two years back he was cheering on TV.The left-arm pacer who got selected for India’s second Test squad was living his dream. “To have all the greats of the game around is something I could only dream of,” Unadkat told on the eve of his Ranji Trophy debut for Saurashtra.Expectedly, Unadkat is excited to bowl his first delivery in the Ranji circuit knowing fully well how important it is to execute in the domestic circuit.

“The outlook from me would be high but I am up for the challenge and ready to prove myself,” Unadkat said after the practice session at the MCA ground in Bandra-Kurla Complex. The Saurashtra-lad is also proud of the fact that he made it to Team India even before making his Saurashtra debut.His delivery stride and the nip off the wicket in the nets showed the purpose and the confidence he has derived from the Indian camp. “Jaidev is on a high after his experience with the Indian team.

He is very sharp and can swing the ball both ways,” pointed out skipper Jaydev Shah. Even coach Debu Mitra felt that the Indian team experience will help him a lot.In the week’s time spent in the Indian dressing room, the left-armer has come back wiser. “You should know what you are doing and not just go out and bowl a few overs,” Unadkat observed. He added: “The room for error at that level is very less. You can bowl a couple of bad deliveries but then you have to be on target.”For Unadkat, the Indian dressing room was like an open chest of invaluable wealth and he gathered as much as he could.
