Jaydev Unadkat became just the third player to take a hat-trick in this edition of the Indian Premier League [IPL] and, therefore, it should come as no surprise that he is our Player of the Day.
The left-arm pacer was a bit expensive in his first spell as he went for 20 runs off his first two overs with the new ball.
It was when he was reintroduced towards the end of the innings that he made his mark.
When he came on to bowl in the 18th over, the match was in the balance, and his dismissal of Yuvraj Singh of the first delivery of the same over changed the match decisively in favour of Rising Pune Supergiant.
Unadkat then also got the wicket of Naman Ojha in the same over which made it very difficult for Sunrisers Hyderabad to chase down the target.
The 25-year-old then returned in the final over of the match, with Sunrisers needing 13 runs to win. What happened next was something that will be remembered for a long time to come as he took a hat-trick and a triple-wicket maiden to guide Pune to a 12-run win.
While all the talk is about Ben Stokes (rightly so too), Jaydev Unadkat is one of the key reasons of #RPS turnaround. Bowling tough overs.— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) May 6, 2017
