Jaydev Unadkat led Saurashtra to their third Ranji Trophy final appearance.

Saurashtra pacer Jaydev Unadkat has suggested face masks be introduced for bowlers following Bengal fast bowler Ashok Dinda’s nasty injury during Bengal’s Twenty 20 practice match at Eden Gardens on Monday.

The 34-year-old Dinda attempted to go for a catch on his follow through after batsman Birender Vivek Singh powerfully hit one at him, but Dinda completely missed and the ball hit his forehead.

Following the incident Unadkat, who led Saurashtra to their third Ranji Trophy final appearance, make a valid suggestion. (ALSO READ: Bengal pacer Ashok Dinda hit on the forehead, taken to hospital)

“About time that a “face-mask” for bowlers makes its way into all that has evolved in cricket. Its scary how this kind of incidents have become frequent in our game! Hope you good Dinda @dindaashoke .. What do you say Ash bhai? @ashwinravi99,” Unadkat, who has played seven ODIs, 10 T20Is and one Test, tweeted on Monday.
