The right-hander was born in Vijaywada in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh on August 22, 1994. While he was young, Nidamanuru moved to New Zealand with his parents and grew up there before playing for Auckland in the domestic circuit.

However, with so much talent already in the queue to break into the national team, Nidamanuru’s number never came. As fate would have it, after completing his education in New Zealand, Nidamanuru got a job in Netherlands in 2019 and it gave him a new opportunity alltogether to once again chase his dream of playing at the international level.

Nidamanuru worked as a business development manager for a workflow management company as of 2021, but his love for cricket also continued parrallely and joined Kampong Club in Utrecht. Following a brief stay at Kampong, Nidamanuru moved to Punjab Rotterdam Club.

It was during his stay at the Punjab Rotterdam when he scored a whirlwind 42-ball 104 in a game against VOC Rotterdam in the 2021 Dutch T20 Cup that brought him into the spotlight of the national selectors.

Nidamanuru finally made his internatioal debut against West Indies in an ODI in 2022 and scored an unbeaten half-century on his maiden outing with the Oranjes.
