Time away from the game due to a stress fracture helped Jaydev Unadkat gain physical strength and perspective and has driven his success this season
Jaydev Unadkat's second five-wicket haul that took his match tally to 11 scalps triggered Assam's disintegration and facilitated Saurashtra's first entry into the Ranji Trophy final in three seasons
Cheteshwar Pujara said his experience and understanding of his game helped him switch plans with ease during the semi-final against Assam
Cheteshwar Pujara dipped into an imprint that has defined his standing as a Test batsman, and provided the critical nudge that advanced Saurashtra's position in the Ranji Trophy semi-final in Vadodara
Saurashtra's quicks enjoyed the lateral movement from the surface, but it was their patience and attention to detail that paid rich dividends during testing periods
