Ruturaj Gaikwad (Indian Cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Kashif Sheikh

Stories of young cricketers stealing the limelight in India’s domestic circuit has been quite a frequent occurrence now. More frequent though, has been their inability to keep themselves in the limelight. Only a few young guns have so far managed to announce themselves on the big stage and stay there for a while. One such name is of Ruturaj Gaikwad, a prolific batsman hailing from Maharashtra’s not so popular cricketing city, Pune. He has been a consistent performer season in season out for his Ranji side, Maharashtra. His batting style coupled with his acrobatic fielding abilities make him a perfect fit for modern day cricket. With Chennai Super Kings now deciding to bring the curtains down on him in the upcoming 2019 season of IPL, it will be interesting to see how this young man fares when the whole world will have their eyes set on him.

Career Turning Point

Consistency has been the key to Ruturaj’s success. However, despite scoring regularly across the domestic circuit, it was his century for India’s Board President’s XI against England Lions while facing a quality bowling attack on a tough batting track that bought him all the laurels from the people who matter, including the likes of India’s youth system caretaker, Rahul Dravid.
