Domestic Career

On 24th September 2019, Ripal made his List-A debut for Gujarat. He played his first match in the 2019-20 Vijay Hazare Trophy. In his first-ever match, Ripal managed to score only nine runs.

Less than two months later, on 11 November 2019, Ripal made his T20 debut. The debut match came in the 2019-20 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Having played 11 T20 matches, Ripal Patel had scored 191 T20 runs with an average of 31.83. His strike rate had been 190, and his highest score had been 41.

He had not been able to score a single half-century during that interval. But, the way he has scored those runs has surely impressed many. 

The highlight of his Syed Mushtaq stint had been an innings against Chhattisgarh. Ripal had played an impressive but short inning of 30 runs in that match. It was this innings that had brought him into the limelight.

It took Ripal quite sometime before he got selected for the IPL. He was not selected in the 2020 IPL auction. 

A major reason due to his non-selection was his poor domestic performance the previous year. He had tried to get selected for Rajasthan Royals too. But that too didn’t turn out great for him.

However, things changed after an impressive 2020 Syed Mushtaq Trophy. He was selected by Delhi Capitals for the 2021 IPL. He was bought for a fair price of 20 lakhs INR by the franchise.

Ripal made his Indian Premier League (IPL) debut on 4th October 2021. He played his first match against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). It was the 50th match of the season.

In IPL 2023 season, Ripal Patel was retained by Delhi Capitals franchise for INR 20 Lakhs.
