Finals are known to get the best out of the star players and one of the stars of this IPL season, Jaydev Unadkat did the same tonight. The left-arm pacer from Saurashtra held on to an almost impossible catch to get rid of dangerous West Indian Lendl Simmons at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad on Sunday.
Caribbean opener Simmons sent the ball back towards the bowler in an attempt to defend it but the ball started dying in front of Unadkat due to lack of power behind the shot. However, the pacer was in no mood to give any reprieve to Mumbai as he bent his body towards left and dived forward to complete a miraculous catch. That Unadkat managed to keep his elbow off the ground was the most beautiful thing about the catch.
Have a look at the beauty!

Can see Dhoni fans hating Unadkat for not letting MI score big. #IPL
INSPIRED. Totally brilliantly inspired catch by Unadkat. Slow balls doing it, thought through strategy. Coming off again. #IPLFinals
