New Delhi: Jaydev Unadkat, who has earned a recall into the Indian squad for the tour of Zimbabwe, is thankful to Zaheer Khan for helping him improve as a cricketer during his stint with the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the sixth edition of IPL.
"Zak (Zaheer) had a big role to play during the last season of IPL. I believe that his contribution to my improvement as a cricketer has been immense. He would devote extra time on me at the nets. Having variations is not all. Zak taught me how and when to use variations. He told me ways to read a batsman's mind which is very important," Unadkat told PTI today.
The other aspect that has helped him is being a part of an extremely strong Saurashtra squad that has likes of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja in it.
