The Lucknow Super Giants continue to build their squad for the 2024 season with strategic moves in the trading window. The latest addition to the squad is Devdutt Padikkal, who joins LSG from the Rajasthan Royals in a trade deal for Avesh Khan. Avesh leaves the Super Giants after 2 successful seasons where he took 26 wickets in 22 matches.
Devdutt joins the franchise with 1521 runs under his belt in 57 IPL matches. Widely touted as one of the most stylish batters around, Devdutt is a technically gifted left-hander who will add solidity to the batting line-up. DDP, as he is fondly known, will look to re-join forces with Karnataka compatriot and LSG skipper, KL Rahul and hone his skills under Head Coach and fellow southpaw Justin Langer.
We are thrilled to have Devdutt on board and can’t wait for him to showcase his skills at the BRSABV Ekana Stadium.
