IPL:Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Devdutt Padikkal offered a glimpse of his bountiful cricketing talent

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Devdutt Padikkal offered a glimpse of his bountiful cricketing talent on his Indian Premier League debut in Dubai on Monday night.
The 20 year old played a lead hand, scoring 56 off 42 balls, including eight fours, as Virat Kohli’s side beat the SunRisers Hyderabad by 10 runs in their opening match of IPL 2020.
The Edappal, Malappuram, Kerala-born left-hander, who moved with his parents Ambili Padikkal and Babu Kunnath to Bengaluru very young, had an incredible run in domestic cricket in 2019.

After impressing with his stroke play, he was inducted into Karnataka’s Under-14 and Under-16 teams. By the time he turned 15, he was in their Under-19 squad.

He rose to prominence during the 2017 Karnataka Premier League after smashing 72 off 53 balls, and followed it up with a stellar run in the 2018 Cooch Behar Under-19 tournament, where he aggregated 829 runs.
That was enough for a call-up to India’s Under-19 squad.
Having made his India Under-19 debut, Padikkal was picked to open for Karnataka in the 2018-2019 Ranji Trophy season.

On debut against Maharashtra, he scored 77 in the second innings.

In the 2019 Vijay Hazare Trophy, his debut List A tournament, he ended up with 609 runs.

Later that year, he debuted in the 2019 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy — the Indian T20 tournament — and top-scored, aggregating 580 runs.

Having offered enough evidence of his abundant talent, he was entrusted the role of opener for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

And he did not disappoint on Monday.
