Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani today heaped praise on Jaydev Unadkat saying the left-arm pacer was pride of Saurashtra. Unadkat was the costliest Indian buy fetching a mind boggling INR 11.5 crore deal from the usually thrifty Rajasthan Royals on the final day of the IPL  auction in Bengaluru. Rupani congratulated Unadkat for being picked up by the Royals.

“Players like Jaydev (Unadkat) are pride of Saurashtra. I congratulate him and wish him to do well in the Indian Premier League and for the country,” Rupani told reporters here. 26-year-old Unadkat has played a Test, seven ODIs and four T20Is for India but in the last one year he has emerged as a parsimonious bowler in the shortest format.
