By posting a photo of his teammate alongside his partner, the Test specialist sent his good wishes to the couple by welcoming Rinny to the family. The 31-year old also playfully warned her that she has to deal with plenty of ‘bromance’ between the duo.
Unadkat’s tally of 67 wickets was the second-most by any player in a single season of Ranji Trophy. Pujara showered praises on Unadkat for his performances in the first-class tournament and claimed that he would be surprised if he didn’t get a national call-up going forward.
