Devdutt Padikkal had a remarkable domestic season where he pioneered Karnataka to win the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy with his batting prowess.

The Numbers that Matter

Tournament Matches Runs Avg. 50s/100s HS
Ranji Trophy 19/20 10 649 45.56 7/0 99
Vijay Hazare 19/20 11 609 67.66 5/2 103*
SMAT 19/20 12 580 64.44 5/1 122*

During the show ‘Bold Diaries’, the 20-year-old spoke about how things have been shaping up for the lads ahead of the upcoming season after a 6-month long break. “Yeah, it was great. We are slowly getting back into it, we have had a good number of sessions in now, so we are feeling really good and we feel like we’re getting back to what we were before lockdown.”

“It’s more about movement, getting the legs moving quicker, getting the reactions faster again, the sessions were targeted on what we are doing and what we are aiming to achieve,” the 20-year-old said

Weather in the Middle East nations is something that needs to be addressed, and not everyone would have had the experience playing under these humid conditions.

“Definitely we are getting used to the weather, we’ve had a few running sessions as well to acclimatize to the conditions here so I feel we can just keep working on our fitness as well so it will help a lot,” RCB batsman added.
