Cricket is one of the most loved sports in India and even the domestic tournaments are played with great seriousness as the performance of players in these tournaments is considered as a benchmark for their entry in the national team. Presently, Saurashtra has emerged as the Ranji Trophy winner after defeating Bengal in the final match which was played at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
The Saurashtra has won their first Ranji Trophy title in 73 years and the skipper Jaydev Unadkat played an important role in this win by taking crucial wickets. Saurashtra batted first and posted a huge total of 425 runs on the board and in response, the Bengal team got out for 381 runs. However, two Bengal batsmen Sudip Chatterjee and Wriddhiman Saha gave tough time to the Saurashtra bowlers and there was a time when Jaydev got frustrated as his side was not able to break their partnership.
How much Jaydev was annoyed can be understood by the fact that he broke the middle-stump with his throw on his own follow-through after the batsman hit the ball towards him and he got hold of it. Jaydev would have been more aggravated with the fact that Saha was dropped earlier on his bowling by Vishvaraj Jadeja.
