Siddharth Trivedi played cricket for Gujarat in India. On his return to the domestic circuit, he is currently playing for the Saurashtra cricket team. He was born in Ahmedabad, on September 4, 1982. He is currently 39 years old.
Siddharth Trivedi received early recognition from India’s selection. In the 2002-03 season, he made his first-class debut. In the Duleep Trophy, he played for West Zone, the Gujarat cricket team in the Ranji Trophy, and the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League.
At 2002, he represented India in the Under 19 Cricket World Cup. His nippy medium-pace earned him a spot in the ICC under-19 World Cup, where he grabbed nine wickets in seven games.
In July, Siddharth Trivedi was selected for an Indian developing players tour to Australia. He got the Border-Gavaskar Scholarship to train for five weeks at the Commonwealth Bank Cricket Academy in Australia after being identified as one of India’s top teenagers.
Siddharth Trivedi was drafted into India B’s ranks for the 2003 Challenger Trophy upon his return to India. Siddharth Trivedi has been a steady performer on the domestic circuit, but he still has a lot of competition for a spot in the Indian pace attack.
Siddharth Trivedi was a member of the Rajasthan Royals, who won the Indian Premier League in 2008. With 65 wickets in the IPL, Trivedi is Rajasthan’s leading wicket-taker. Siddharth Trivedi rose to prominence during the inaugural IPL, when he was a member of the Rajasthan Royals’ championship-winning team. Shane Warne, the Royals’ captain, praised him profusely. However, it was an occurrence in the IPL that caused Trivedi a major setback.
Once news of spot-fixing inside the Royals team in the IPL 2013 broke, Trivedi alerted police authorities about multiple approaches he received from bookies but ignored over the course of their probe. In September 2013, he was found guilty of violating the BCCI’s anti-corruption policy by failing to report the approaches when they occurred, and was banned for a year.
This was a major setback for the Ahmedabad-born right-arm medium-pacer, as he was no longer able to play competitive cricket. Despite his regret at losing out on professional cricket, Trivedi remained upbeat and stated that if the suspension is removed, he will return stronger. Despite a strong showing in the domestic circuit, Trivedi’s national breakout remains a pipe dream.
After serving a one-year ban, he returned to domestic in 2014. On his comeback to the domestic circuit, he joined the Saurashtra cricket squad.
