The left arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat , made his international debut in a test against South Africa in Centurion back in 2010. Because for his left arm pace, he was called up for national duty. But he did not get any chance after that and was dropped.He also played his last ODI in 2013.
However last year in the Nidahas Trophy, Unadkat made a stunning comeback to the Indian team. But couldn’t cement his place in the team. Due to his poor performance in the 2018 IPL , he was heavily criticized.
The current Saurashtra captain’s best IPL season was for RPS. Now-defunct franchise Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) was a hit with Unadkat in their ranks. In 12 matches , Unadkat took 24 wickets with an average of 13.41 . He was the Second -Highest wicket taker of that season. The left arm pacer was also one of the only two to pick up five-wicket hauls of that IPL edition.
But , he has now started believing in himself. And slowly finding his form back. Now he thinks his time will surely come despite lot of competition in the team.

Lot of Competiton in the Team : Unadkat
In a interview for Times of India, Unadkat said :
To be honest, all the bowlers are doing very well with the chances they are getting. If you see, it is the best crop of pace bowlers we have had in the history of Test cricket, so it cannot get better in terms of competition. If I keep on playing the way I am at the moment, I definitely feel the time will come.
The Saurashtra Captain is now only focusing on Syed Mustaq Ali T20 Tournament. He is also winning games for them .
Unadkat said on this matter :
I have been called up when I was doing well in the past and I still feel my time will come. I am going to wait for my time. I am taking it one game at a time. Right now, the focus is to help Saurashtra win every single game.
