The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) named left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat as senior speedster Mohammed Shami’s replacement in India’s squad for India vs Bangladesh two-match Test series, starting December 14, Wednesday. Jaydev, after toiling hard for 14 long years in domestic cricket, has earned a comeback in the national Test team. So far, Unadkat has played just a single Test match for the national team, back in 2010. He had a poor outing in that match after which he didn’t get any opportunity.
