“Welcome to the family Rinny. I am so glad that my brother @JUnadkat has found the love of his life. P:S – You have to deal with a lot of bromance,” Pujara tweeted.

On Friday, Unadkat guided Saurashtra to their maiden title at Ranji Trophy on the basis of the first-innings lead against Bengal on the fifth day of the final clash at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
Unadkat enjoyed a terrific Ranji Trophy season as he snapped a 21-year-old record to become a fast bowler with most wickets in a single season of the premier domestic tournament in India.
By finishing with 67 wickets at an average of 13.23, Unadkat broke a record of most wickets taken by a pacer in the single edition of a Ranji Trophy which was previously held by Karnataka’s Dodda Ganesh–who finished with 62 wickets in 1998-99 season.
He also became the second left-arm pacer with most wickets in Ranji Trophy with 271 wickets. Samad Fallah tops the list with 272 wickets.
Not only this, the Saurashtra skipper also became only the third pacer after Laxmipathy Balaji and Aniket Choudhary to pick up seven 5-wicket hauls in a season.
