For youngster Jaydev Unadkat, the five-wicket haul against Delhi Daredevils was "very special". Unadkat claimed five wickets for only 25 runs as RCB managed to restrict hosts Delhi to 179 for seven while chasing 183.

“It was very special. It was an important game for us as far as the points table is concerned. We needed to win the game to keep ourselves in the hunt for a play-off berth,” Unadkat said after the match.

“I didn’t do anything extraordinary. I just tried to stick to my plans. When I came to bowl the last over they needed 19 runs and I knew I just had to bowl three good balls, which I did,”  he said.

Unadkat was thankful to the RCB management and senior left-arm pacer Zaheer Khan for this show. “At the start of the tournament I was very apprehensive about getting a game because there are a lot of good pacers in our team.

But I got my chances and capitalised on them. I am thankful to the team management, the captain and coach for showing faith in me. Zaheerbhai also helped me a lot,” he said.
