Ever since the time, Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from the cricketing arena we all have been waiting to see someone as good as Punjab boy. But now we feel the time as come, RCB batsmen Devdutt Padikkal is here to stay as he’s had a magnificent start to this year’s IPL as he became the first Indian batsmen to score a fifty on debut in the Indian Premier League.
So far in the four games, RCB has played this season, Padikkal has notched up three fifties in the four games. Which is quite incredible a record for someone playing his first IPL season. His performance has been instrumental in Royal Challengers Bangalore being in stellar form this season as in all likelihood it seems like RCB will go on to qualify.
In the latter’s recent fifty against Rajasthan Royals we saw him flicking one for six after which fans started comparing him to the greatest left-handed batsmen we’ve seen from India Yuvraj Singh.
Yuvraj Singh and Devdutt Padikkal Converse On Twitter
After Padikkal inning’s at Abu Dhabi, Yuvraj Singh tweeted how Virat Kohli‘s form is temporary but class is forever of the RCB captain and then further went on to praise the left-handed batsmen, he wants to bat alongside Devdutt Padikkal and have a little competition of who hits the longer six between them.
“Form is temporary class is forever! @imVkohli however I haven’t seen this boy out of form since last 8 years which is unbelievable actually! Paddikal looks really good need to bat together and see who hits longer,” Yuvraj wrote.
To which Devdutt Padikkal replied, how he’s not looking to compete with someone like Yuvraj Singh but will look to bat alongside him since that’s something he always wanted to do.
“Not competing with you paji. Learnt the flick from you. Always wanted to bat with you. Let’s go,” Davdutt Padikkal wrote.
