Jaydev Unadkat Creates History: A Memorable Comeback In Odis After 3539 Days In IND Vs WI Clash

India defeated West Indies by 200 runs in the final one-day international at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad, to win the series 2-1. According to India TV news, India continued to experiment as Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, who did not play in the second ODI either, were not included in the starting XI. 

A huge development in the world of cricket occurred when Jaydev Unadkat was named to the Indian playing XI for the third One-Day International against the West Indies in Trinidad. He is scheduled to don the Indian shirt in Jaydev Unadkat ODIs once more after a startling 3,539 days, setting a record for the longest time between games for a player.

India vs. West Indies: Jaydev Unadkat Makes A Return To ODI After 10 years

During India's third Jaydev Unadkat ODI match against West Indies in Trinidad, Jaydev Unadkat made his way back into the India ODI playing XI for the first time in almost ten years. Unadkat participated in a 50-over match for the senior India side on November 21, 2013, also against the West Indies at Kochi's Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, before the ODI on Tuesday. Unadkat has participated in seven ODIs and claimed eight wickets so far. Jaydev Unadkat's finest bowling performance came against Zimbabwe in July 2013 with statistics of 4/41.

On Tuesday, Axar Patel was replaced by Unadkat in the starting lineup, while India also made a change, replacing Umran Malik with Ruturaj Gaikwad. Tuesday saw Hardik Pandya captain India for the second straight game as Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli once more took a break to allow the young players more game time before the Jaydev Unadkat ODI World Cup in October. Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill weren't the only batsmen to achieve this feat, either. Sanju Samson and team captain Hardik Pandya both contributed valuable runs to the club's total with innings of 51 and 70 runs, respectively.

After almost ten years, veteran Indian pacer Jaydev Unadkat century returned to the ODI team and took a wicket off his sixth delivery. In the current three-match Jaydev Unadkat ODI series against West Indies, the left-seamer was ineligible for the first two games. For the series-deciding game, he came in place of Umran Malik in the starting XI. As soon as captain Hardik Pandya called for him in the 11th over, Unadkat made an impact by taking a wicket. By then, Mukesh Kumar had already shattered the West Indies batting order by easily dismissing their top three batters.
