Ranji Trophy 2020 Final, Day 5, Saurashtra vs Bengal Final Highlights: Skipper Jaydev Unadkat produced a lion-hearted spell when it mattered the most and paved the way for Saurashtra’s maiden Ranji Trophy title triumph on the basis of the first-innings lead at Rajkot on Friday.
Bengal had the upper hand going into day five after Anustup Majumdar (63) and Arnab Nandi (40 not out) shared an unbeaten 91-run stand in the final session Thursday.
But Unadkat, who had single-handily taken Saurashtra into the final with a seven-wicket haul against Gujarat on the final day of their semifinal, rose to the occasion yet again to put his team on the cusp of a historic victory.

The left-arm pacer had Majumdar LBW and Akash Deep run out in a space of three balls to turn the game on its head. One hour and 10 minutes of play in the decisive morning session yielded 27 runs and four wickets with Bengal all out for 381, giving Saurashtra a 44-run first innings lead.
