Devdutt Padikkal has been one consistent member of Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2020 so far. Yesterday he scored his third IPL fifty of the edition and was applauded by former Indian national cricket team superstar Yuvraj Singh.
Padikkal, a promising Indian cricketer
The 20-year-old opener of Royal Challengers Bangalore is one of the promising youngsters of Indian cricket. In four matches of RCB so far, Padikkal has smashed three half-centuries. No wonder he is one of the biggest finds of IPL 2020 and already being refered as an upcoming Indian national cricket team star. Padikkal showed his mettle for India-A and Under-19 Indian national cricket team and the performances helped him fin d a place in Royal Challengers Bangalore playing eleven. This is his debut season of Indian Premier League and he is already one of the top highest run-scorers of the season.
Moreover, he has shown enough maturity amid the failure of top order big names of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Even yester after quick dismissal of Aaron Finch, when Virat Kohli was taking time to settle down, it was this young star of Indian cricket who kept the scoreboard moving.

The lad has impressed one and all. From experts to fans, everyone is getting ready to see him in the Indian national cricket team soon. Legendary yesteryear’s Indian national cricket team all-rounder Yuvraj Singh also acclaimed him saying, “Padikkal looks really good”. He went on to add, “need to bat together and see who hits longer.” Padikkal came up with a reply full of respect saying, “Not competing with you paji. Learnt the flick from you. Always wanted to bat with you. Let’s go!.”

Padikkal has already 174 runs to his tally and is occupying the 4th rank in the batsmen list of IPL 2020. Royal Challengers Bangalore will be playing against Delhi Capitals next on Monday. A blast will be again expected from Indian national cricket team captain as he came out of bad phase. Padikkal should manage to carry on with the momentum to take the Bangalore team team closer to the play-offs. Moreover, this should be his ticket to Indian national cricket team as well.
