Domestic Career

In the 2017 season of Karnataka Premier League, he played for Bellary Tuskers as an opening batsman. Against Bengaluru Blasters, the 17-year-old scored a stunning 72 from 53 balls which turned out to be an important inning in his career. He was under the limelight since then and during the U-19 days. Then came that testing phase which every cricketer has to go through. A steep drop of form for one long year only pushed him further to come back strongly. In the Cooch Behar Trophy of 2018, Devdutt Padikkal made his comeback with 829 runs in the tournament. Things went well very quickly for him since that performance. He was named as the ‘Batsman of the year’ by Karnataka State Cricket Association and earned him a place in the Karnataka Ranji Trophy team.

Devdutt has a knack of making good first impressions. He scored a debut half-century against Maharashtra. The year of 2019 was even better for the young lad. A splendid KPL season bagging the Emerging player award followed by becoming the leading run-scorer in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy made him the newest sensation in domestic cricket. Karnataka won both the trophies and reached the semi-finals in the Ranji Trophy where Devdutt was the top-scorer for the team. In List A cricket, he has an incredible average of 86.68 claiming six centuries and eight half-centuries in just 20 matches.
