In the decisive fifth Test match between India and England in Dharamsala, Devdutt Padikkal made his Test debut after Rajat Patidar suffered an ankle injury in the last moments of play. On March 6, 2024, Patidar was injured during a drill, forcing Padikkal—who is usually an opener—to take on a middle-order role. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the team where Padikkal started his IPL career, celebrated his rise from aspirations to the Test arena on social media by sending out well wishes and a heartfelt message.

In 2020, Padikkal started his IPL career with RCB, where he had an outstanding rookie season run that culminated in his debut in the India T20I against Sri Lanka. Rajasthan Royals bought him for Rs 7.75 crore in the IPL 2022 auction, despite RCB’s best efforts to keep him. Padikkal, who spent time with RR, will open for the Lucknow Super Giants in the 2024 Indian Premier League, which could force KL Rahul into a middle-order role.

India took the opening day of the Dharamsala Test by storm, bowling England out for 218 thanks to five wickets from Kuldeep Yadav and four from R Ashwin. With a century partnership between openers Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma, India had a strong starting point. Rohit finished the day at 135/1 with a half-century.
