Meanwhile, Dhruv Shorey, Vaibhav Rawal and captain Yash Dhull were dismissed on the third, fourth and fifth delivery.

Unadkat continued his ruthless bowling spell in his next over, dismissing Jonty Sidhu (4), Lalit Yadav (0) and wicketkeeper-batter Lakshay Thareja (1). This reduced Delhi to an alarming 10/7.

Pranshu Vijayran and Hrithik Shokeen helped Delhi get out of their slump and they helped the side cross the 50-run mark. 

Delhi was at 108/8, with Hritik Shokeen 57*, Shivank Vashisht 24* unbeaten at the crease, helping their side cross the 100-run mark with their fifty-run partnership.

Unadkat is currently the pick of the bowlers for Saurashtra, having picked up six wickets for 29 runs in his nine overs. Chirag Jani and Prerak Mankad took a wicket each.

Unadkat was recently part of India's squad that toured Bangladesh and won the Test series by 2-0.

Unadkat played his debut Test back in December 2010 against South Africa. He had gone wicketless in that match.

He played well in the second Test, taking 2/50 in the first innings and 1/17 in the second. In the low-scoring match, he also contributed with the willow scoring 14* and 13.

Over these 12 years though, he turned into a domestic cricket giant.

Meanwhile he also scored 1,759 runs in 126 innings at an average of 18.51, with seven fifties and the best score of 92.
