NEW DELHI: Indian seamer Jaydev Unadkat and spinner Jayant Yadav delivered impressive performances in their debut appearances in the English County circuit.
Unadkat, who is now a potential candidate for the Indian Test squad in the upcoming tour of South Africa, showcased his skills by claiming an impressive nine-wicket haul for Sussex against Leicestershire in a Division Two match, which ultimately resulted in Sussex securing a hard-fought 15-run victory.
Unadkat’s contributions included a noteworthy 3 for 23 in the first innings and a remarkable 6 for 94 in the second innings, not only sealing the win but also reigniting Sussex’s aspirations for promotion to Division One.
India batter Cheteshwar Pujara, who is also Sussex’s captain, scored 26 and 23 in the game and also took a spectacular catch to dismiss Leicestershire opener Rishi Patel.
Yadav, playing in a Division One game for Middlesex against Lancashire, toiled for his five-wicket haul as he returned with figures of 33-4-131-5 in a drawn game at Manchester.
Meanwhile, also making his County debut this season, leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal took an overall five wickets – 3/63 and 2/43 – for Kent against Nottinghamshire in a Division One game at Canterbury.
