Rajasthan Royals emptied their pockets to close the final bid for Jaydev Unadkat at Rs. 8.40 crore in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 auction. The Saurashtra pacer was bought by the Jaipur franchise following his prolific run in the domestic season but Unadkat failed to make his performance count in the IPL 2019, drawing severe criticism by fans on social media. Unadkat broke his silence on Sunday as he took to Twitter and vowed to come back stronger. He also enlightened fans that his comeback has always been stronger after every downfall he faced in his career.

His tweet received mixed reactions from fans, with some supporting him and others further criticising the pacer for his poor run in the IPL 2019.

Unadkat featured in 11 matches for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2019. But his dismal performance saw him claim only 10 wickets. The 27-year-old's best bowling figures of 2/26 in the season was also not an impressive one.

The Gujarat-born player's best bowling performance came in the IPL 2017, where he found rhythm to scalp 24 wickets, with the best bowling figures of 5/30.

Unadkat has played a total of 73 IPL matches. He has a bowling average of 28.46 and an economy rate of 8.73, with two five-wicket hauls to his name.

Rajasthan Royals finished seventh in the IPL 2019 points table with 11 points, winning five matches from their stipulated 14.
