Bangalore: Apr 17, 2013 

It was his senior colleague Ravi Rampaul who bowled the Super Over against Delhi Daredevils, but young Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Jaydev Unadkat said he would have loved to take up the responsibility.

“I would have loved to go out there and bowl the Super Over in that kind of atmosphere,” Unadkat said after RCB’s win against the Daredevils last night.

RCB have been churning out thriller after thriller in this year’s IPL and out of their six games so far, four have been absolute nail-biters, including two tied matches.

RCB’s first Super Over this season was an away game against Sunrisers Hyderabad where Dale Steyn proved too good for them.

However, having faced the situation once, the Bangalore outfit came out victorious against Delhi Daredevils in their second Super Over of the season last night.

“We’ve played out three last-ball thrillers and I’m happy to finally be on the winning side today,” Unadkat told iplt20.com.

“That loss against the Chennai Super Kings really hurt all of us. We really wanted to win that game because RCB have never done too well there. The way we lost was really heartbreaking for us and it also motivated us all.”

The young left-arm pacer considers himself lucky to be playing alongside some of the best batsmen of the world.

“I am very, very lucky to play with guys like (Chris) Gayle, Virat (Kohli) and AB (de Villiers) and not against them. We’re a lucky bunch of bowlers in RCB not to be bowling to these batsmen,” Unadkat said when asked about RCB’s batting pedigree.

While RCB boasts of a strong bowling attack, Unadkat was aware of the team’s struggle in the death overs.

“We cannot just go through the motions in the death overs. It will be important for us to practise bowling the yorkers and the slower ones and then implement them in match situations,” Unadkat said.
