Karnataka’s newest domestic star, Devdutt Padikkal had been a part of the IPL Auction in 2019. The U19 talent received a bid from the perennial underachievers Royal Challengers Bangalore as they signed him for his base price only.

Since the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel and Moeen Ali were present in the team’s top order, the team management never included Devdutt in the playing XI. He watched the entire season from the bench but this year, he may open the innings for Bangalore.

The reason behind that is his rise in the domestic circuit. Padikkal played an important role in Karnataka’s Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy triumphs. He was the most consistent batsman of his team. Thus, he will prove to be an asset for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the upcoming IPL season.
