After bagging a contract in the IPL, Tripathi’s first innings of note came in the 2016-17 Vijay Hazare Trophy when he made a 44-ball 57 against Uttar Pradesh in a losing cause.


In the quarter-final against Bengal, he struck a 74-ball 95 to further his cause. He hit four sixes in the innings to help Maharashtra post a score above 300.

After a couple of scores in the 30’s, Tripathi first came in the headlines of the IPL when he made 59 off 41 deliveries to help Rising Pune Supergiant to a comfortable victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad at Pune. His performance in the IPL would be defined by a knock he played against the Kolkata Knight Riders at Kolkata. Chasing 156 for victory, Tripathi lit up the Eden Gardens with a 52-ball 93 hitting 78 of those runs in boundaries as he orchestrated a successful run chase.


Tripathi, who opened for his team, was crucial to Pune's run to the IPL final. With a strike rate of 146, he scored 391 runs in 14 innings by the end of the IPL. In 8 innings, he scored seven 30+ runs


In 2018, RPS dissolved out of IPL, but the Rajasthan Royals signed Tripathi for 3.4 crores. Before the 2020 Indian Premier League season, he was traded to the Kolkata Knight Riders after having a poor season with the Royals.


With a respectable strike-rate of 127, Tripthi scored 230 runs in 11 games while playing for KKR. Following that, the team retained him ahead of the 2021 IPL season.


In the 2021 IPL season, 397 runs were scored by KKR's key player in the top order. He was signed by the Sunrisers Hyderabad in February 2022 at Rs. 8.5 crore during the Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction. He is currently playing for the SRH middle order in the 2024 IPL season.
