After his IPL stint, Jaydev Unadkat will return to Sussex this year

For the final five games of the County Championship campaign, Jaydev Unadkat will return to the English club Sussex.
He had last represented India in the two-test away series against the West Indies in 2023, came up with his best performance against Leicestershire on Sussex’s home ground, taking six second-inning wickets to guide the country side to a 15-run win.
Unadkat, who led Saurashtra to its maiden Ranji Trophy title in the 2019–20 season, said he cannot wait to get back to Hove.
“It was at Hove last season when we won a last-day thriller against Leicestershire that gave me a sense of belongingness to county cricket and to Sussex as my home,” said Unadkat in a statement.
“When head coach Paul Farbrace offered me a contract this season for the last leg of the championship, I was sure I wanted to come back and hopefully win games with the guys.”
“While my first county season was good, I can’t wait to be back and push for that promotion this summer, which everyone at Hove is rooting for!” he added.
Sussex head coach Farbrace said Unadkat had shown his class during the last season and hoped the Indian would continue in the same vein this season.
