Ranji Trophy 2020 Final, Day 5, Saurashtra vs Bengal Final Highlights: Skipper Jaydev Unadkat produced a lion-hearted spell when it mattered the most and paved the means for Saurashtra’s maiden Ranji Trophy title triumph on the foundation of the first-innings lead at Rajkot on Friday.
Bengal had the higher hand going into day 5 after Anustup Majumdar (63) and Arnab Nandi (40 not out) shared an unbeaten 91-run stand in the last session Thursday.
But Unadkat, who had single-handily taken Saurashtra into the last with a seven-wicket haul in opposition to Gujarat on the last day of their semifinal, rose to the event but once more to place his workforce on the cusp of a historic victory.
