Not the only Kannadiga in the U Mumba squad, Devadiga likes to call himself a Mumbai boy. This commerce graduate plays for BPCL and rose to the top purely thanks his lightening quick raiding skills in the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
Devadiga, 24, along with captain Anup and fellow raider Shabeer form the holy trinity of the team’s raiding department and deserve credit for bagging hundreds of points together. In Season Two, Devadiga came to be known for his do or die raids. His growth as a player was evident throughout the season.
He enjoys training hard, especially running and intensive drills which help him build his stamina. And with a protein-rich diet and gym routine, Rishank has developed a physique that out-muscles the opponent.
“I’m feeling strong, stronger than before and more dedicated this season.”
