Now, grabbing the headlines again, the cricketer took it to Instagram on Sunday, to announce his engagement with his fiancée Rinny. He shared a picture of himself with his fiancée on his official Twitter account and captioned it, “6 hours, 2 meals & 1 shared mud cake later..”.

Following the announcement, everyone started pouring in wishes for the newly engaged couple, with each one of them, congratulating him in his/her own unique way.

The cricketer just came back after a long but fruitful Ranji season, where he helped his team, Saurashtra, to get a victory in the Ranji Trophy finals. Unadkat’s performance in the campaign and especially in the finals was crucial for the team’s progression and all of his efforts paid off when his team got a chance to get their hands on the coveted trophy and were crowned as the winners for this season.

Jaydev scalped the second-highest number of wickets in a single Ranji season this year. He got 67 wickets, falling just one wicket short of the record that is currently held by Bihar’s Ashutosh Aman, who got 68 wickets in the 2018-19 season. But, this wasn’t it for him. Unadkat might have fallen short of the overall record, but his exploits are the highest among the pacers. The previous highest was by Doda Ganesh, who had gotten 62 wickets in a Ranji season.
