Domestic Career

Domestically Unadkat plays for Saurashtra. He has played for a number of teams in the Indian Premier League. When he was selected by Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2013 he was one of the costliest Indian players. In May 2013 he achieved his best T20 career bowling figures of 5/25 playing against Delhi Daredevils and was named Player of the Match.

In 2014, he was selected by Delhi in that year’s IPL auction, and in February 2016 Kolkata Knight Riders made the winning bid in that auction, ₹160 lakh (US$210,000), to secure Unadkat’s services. In February 2017, he moved again, this time to Rising Pune Supergiants. In the 10th IPL he took a hat-trick against Sunrisers Hyderabad during the final over of the match which was a wicket maiden over.

In July 2018, he was named in the squad for India Blue for the 2018–19 Duleep Trophy and in October 2018 was named in India B’s squad for the 2018–19 Deodhar Trophy.

In January 2019, he became the second bowler for Saurashtra to take 200 wickets in the Ranji Trophy and in August 2019 was named in the India Red team’s squad for the 2019–20 Duleep Trophy before being named for India A for the 2019–20 Deodhar Trophy. He was the leading wicket-taker in the 2019–20 Ranji Trophy, with 67 dismissals in ten matches.

Jaydev Unadkat has not played a Test since his debut in 2010.

International Career

After playing for India’s under-19 side in England in 2010, taking 13 wickets on his first-class cricket debut against West Indies under-19s at Grace Road, Unadkat was used as a net bowler for the Indian national side in Sri Lanka before making his international debut for India against South Africa in December 2010 in the first Test at Centurion.

Unadkat made his Twenty20 International (T20I) debut against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club in June 2016.
