Pujara, Unadkat to play in C K Nayudu tie for Saurashtra

Mumbai: With a view to give match practice ahead of the England Test series, Saurashtra have included middle-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara and speedster Jaydev Unadkat in their team for their opening C K Nayudu Trophy league match against Vidarbha starting at Rajkot tomorrow.

The four-day league match is to be held at the Rajkot Municipal cricket ground, said a media release from the association.

While Pujara played in the two-Test series against New Zealand, Unadkat toured with the India `A` team to New Zealand in August.

Arpit Vasavada will lead Saurashtra in the four-day match.

England are set to play four Tests in India after arriving in Mumbai on October 29.
