Devdutt Padikkal couldn’t kick on to produce a score of note in his maiden international outing, but the youngster sure wasn’t a bundle of nerves. He wasn’t overawed by the occasion one bit, throwing the kitchen sink at the part-time off-spin of Dhananjaya de Sliva to garner six over mid-wicket. His innings was fun while it lasted, as Padikkal played a shot too many to depart for a brisk 29, castled by Wanindu Hasaranga, the man with the golden arm.
Devdutt Padikkal hits the first MAXIMUM of the game! 🙌
First for him in international cricket as well
