Biography

A kabaddi player since his college days, Rishank Devadiga’s style of play involves taking the attack to the opposition. After being picked for U Mumba in the inaugural season he went from strength to strength to become the second-most successful raider of the league in Season 3. His career is highlighted by leading the Do-Or-Die raid points tally for U Mumba in Seasons 2, 3 and 4 and for U.P. Yoddha in Season 5. After a stand-in stint as the U.P. Yoddha skipper he led Maharashtra in the 2017-18 Senior National Kabaddi Championship to win the title after 11 years.

 

Season 3 of VIVO Pro Kabaddi was Rishank Devadiga’s most successful campaign where he finished second in the list of top raiders with 106 points from 16 matches.

 

His 28 points in a single game against Jaipur Pink Panthers in his first match as captain of U.P. Yoddha in Season 5 was his most impressive performance in the league.

 

Devadiga first made an appearance for team India in the 2018 Kabaddi Masters Dubai after successfully leading Maharashtra to a Senior Nationals title.
