Jaydev Unadkat, whose five-for against Delhi Daredevils helped his team Royal Challengers Bangalore win by four runs, has said his strength is bowling yorkers and varying his pace. "My strength is varying the pace and bowling the yorkers. My favourite delivery is the slower one that I bowl," Unadkat said at the end of the game.

Virender Sehwag and Mahela Jayawardene, the Daredevils openers, were among Unadkat's five victims. "The wicket was a little dry. And we stuck to the plan [varying the pace] and it was a good thing that I got the two wickets. We needed those wickets in the Powerplays early on.

"My plan was to vary the pace. The batsmen were hitting the ball really well with the pace and the wicket, too, was a little dry. I bowled a lot of slower ones and it worked for me on Friday."

Unadkat also bowled the final over off the game, off which Daredevils required 19. He conceded 14, though dismissed Morne Morkel with nine required off two deliveries.
