From a young age, Dayalan showed a keen interest in cricket and participated in local competitions in Tamil Nadu. She made her domestic debut for Tamil Nadu in the 2011-12 season. Her ability to contribute with both bat and ball made her a key figure in the team’s lineup. Initially she played for Tamil Nadu before switching to the Railways side who’s known as one of the strongest teams in Indian women’s domestic cricket circuit.

She caught the eyes of national selectors after being one of the top run scorers in the 2017-18 Senior Women’s T20 League. Dayalan received her maiden national call up in the ODI series against England but didn’t get a game. She then made her ODI debut against Sri Lanka at Galle although didn’t get to bat, she was handy with her off spin picking a wicket. Later on, she was part of India’s squad for the 2018 Women’s T20 World Cup. She made her debut against New Zealand, playing a fleeting knock of 15 off 7 balls batting in the middle order.

In the first edition of the Women’s Premier League (WPL), she was picked by the Gujarat Giants for 30 lakh INR. She featured in eight matches scoring 151 runs. She was retained by the Giants for the second edition of WPL but didn’t have an ideal season. Although she did score a demonstrating 74 against the Mumbai Indians, she ended the season with only 115 runs in her eight matches. It is to be noted that her runs were still important, and she continued to play the fearless brand of cricket that was expected of her.
