CareerEdit

Gowtham's professional career began when he was picked for the under-15 zonal tournament in Bangalore where he emerged as the second-highest wicket-taker.[2] He played his first Ranji Trophy game for Karnataka in November 2012, against Bengal, and picked up two wickets, both in the second innings.

In the 2016–17 Ranji Trophy season, Gowtham picked up two consecutive five-wicket hauls, against Delhi and Assam, helping his team win both the games. In the latter game, he returned his career-best figures of 7/108.[3]

In February 2017, he was bought by the Mumbai Indians team for the 2017 Indian Premier League for 2 crores.[4] He made his List A debut for Karnataka in the 2016–17 Vijay Hazare Trophy on 25 February 2017.[5]

In October 2017, he scored his maiden first-class century, batting for Karnataka against Assam in the 2017–18 Ranji Trophy.[6]

In January 2018, he was bought by the Rajasthan Royals in the 2018 IPL auction.[7][8] In October 2018, he was named in India B's squad for the 2018–19 Deodhar Trophy.[9]

On 23 August 2019, in a Karnataka Premier League (KPL) match for Bellary Tuskers against Shivamogga Lions, he scored 134 runs off 56 deliveries and took 8 wickets for 15 runs. However, the matches in the KPL do not have full Twenty20 status.[10][11] In October 2019, he was named in India B's squad for the 2019–20 Deodhar Trophy.[12]
