Opting to bat, India Green kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Unadkat, who let Saurashtra to the Ranji Trophy final last season, struck early in the seventh over when he trapped captain Faiz Fazal lbw for just 12. Number three batsman Dhruv Shorey batted well for his 23 off 37, but failed to capitalise after his stay was cut short by Sandeep Warrier in the 17th over.
In the following over, Siddhesh Lad became Unadkat’s next victim and departed without troubling the scorers. Akshdeep Nath looked good in his 29 off 46 – his innings studded with five boundaries before he fell to Vidarbha spinner Aditya Sarwate in the 32nd over. Akshay Wadkar was then cleaned up by Unadkat, who returned later to dismiss Rajesh Mohanty for nought — the last wicket of the day — thus completing his four-wicket haul.
