It is a well known fact that Karnataka has produced many batting talents who have gone onto represent the country in the recent past. With the likes of KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, R Samarth, Karun Nair, K Gowtham and Mayank Agarwal graduating to the next level, Karnataka picked a relatively inexperienced side for the 2018-19 domestic season, especially in the batting department and the onus was on the youngsters to deliver the goods for the team.
KV Siddarth is a right-hand middle-order batsman who has grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Making his FC debut against Vidarbha in Nagpur, Siddarth has risen to the occasion when it has mattered. In his debut game, when his team had a lost a flurry of wickets in the second innings, Siddarth showed tremendous grit and determination, helping his side secure a draw. In the next game against Mumbai, Siddarth compiled a crucial 161 and followed it up with an unbeaten 71 in the second essay, scripting his team gain a FIL. He amassed 728 runs in the season and finished as the leading run-getter for Karnataka. It remains to be seen if he can keep up the consistency in the next few seasons.
