Domestic Cricket Career

Rahul Tripathi | KreedOn

Rahul Tripathi made his first-class debut for Maharashtra in the 2012-13 Ranji Season. But his records, in the beginning, were merely average over 26 first-class games and only three hundred during that interval.

Neither did he have any great records to boast of in the limited-overs format. One of his standout performances came in the 2018-19 Ranji Season when he was the highest run-scorer for Maharashtra. He scored 504runs that season.

Rahul Tripathi’s greatest contributions come from the Indian Premier League or the IPL. He gained fame through the IPL.

The 2017 Indian Premier League made Tripathi a known face and made the cricketing fraternity aware of him. He was one of the biggest finds of that season, opening for the Rising Pune Supergiants. At the beginning of the season, people doubted if he’d be even selected, but not only was he selected but he stunned everyone with his performance for Rising Pune Supergiants in that season. The team reached the finals easily that season.

The fact that he was even selected, despite average domestic performances, was surprising but the fact that he did better after that was a testament to his talent.

The next year, Rising Pune Supergiants were replaced by a returning Rajasthan Royals. Tripathi was luckily selected for a team but did not find himself playing many matches.

However, towards the end of the tournament Rahane’s lack of form enabled Tripathi to get a chance. Tripathi perfectly utilized that game as he scored a fifty which came in a crucial knockout game.

He was later released by Rajasthan Royals ahead of the 2020 auction and was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders, also known as KKR in the 2020 auction.
