Rishank Devadiga enters the 500 club
Up’s skipper Rishank Devadiga is going through a lean patch which has definitely hindered his side’s performance as well. In the game against Bengal Warriors, his side needed a desperate win to gain momentum and the skipper rose to the big occasion by claiming his first super 10 of the season.
