‘Mango Man’ Jaydev Unadkat!
Mango is a very tempting food for people in the subcontinent. However, Rajasthan Royals paceman Jaydev Unadkat admits, not only the people of the subcontinent, but also a famous star of England, has liked Mango much. He is no one else, star all-rounder Ben Stokes. Who is Unadkat’s teammate at Rajasthan Royals.
IPL lags behind due to coronavirus. Everyone is sitting at home, following the rules of quarantine. But in the meantime, the Rajasthan Royals are quite active in social media. They are organizing regular podcasts with players of their own team. Players are coming to Instagram live. In one such post, left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat has disclosed a funny story.
Ranji Trophy winning Saurashtra captain got his temmates the summer fruit during their playing time together for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL). And Ben Stokes was so happy to eat,
“When I brought mangoes for everyone in the team, he (Stokes) was happier than everyone else. He even gave me a new name – ‘Mango Man’!”
Stokes can’t take his out simply, it is also known for the welfare of Unadkat, “I still remember when Stokes was out, he broke the bat and the helmet, he is dangerous after getting out. He is an extraordinary man, a champion cricketer.”
This time, Unadkat had the opportunity to become Stokes’ teammate again in exchange for Rs three crore. But where is the opportunity to get on the field? Unadkat understands the importance of being in the house, even though he is looking forward to playing, “I am dying to return to the field. But I can’t complain. No matter how hard we are, we must win this coronavirus fight.”
