Devdutt Padikkal has slammed three fifties in four innings in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) and most recently, he scored a 45-ball 63 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Abu Dhabi to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to a comprehensive eight-wicket victory. He has been receiving a lot of praises from cricketers around the world. Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to compliment the southpaw’s batting, especially praising his flick shot. The former India batsman also went on to say that he would he wants to bat with Paddikal to see who hits it longer. Replaying to this, Padikkal said, “Not competing with you paji. Learnt the flick from you. Always wanted to bat with you. Let’s go!”

Talking about the win over RR that saw RCB go top of the IPL 2020 table for a brief time, Padikkal said, "Amazing to contribute to the win of RCB. This is what I have been looking to do in all the games, it's important that we keep winning and I keep contributing to the side. Finch has been great and early on, we are getting good partnerships, hopefully, we can do that going ahead in the tournament," Padikkal said in a video posted on the official Twitter handle of RCB.

He further added that RCB aim to be the best team in the tournament. "The talk was about going well in the field, we have dropped a couple of catches in the previous games, we want to make sure that we are the best team in terms of fielding in this IPL,” the RCB opener added. 

RCB will next take on Delhi Capitals (DC) on Monday (October 5) at Dubai.
