Ruturaj Gaikwad Girlfriend, Height, Age, IPL, Teams, Stats, Wiki


Ruturaj Gaikwad is one story of a young cricketer stealing the limelight in India’s domestic circuit of late. Only a few young guns have so far managed to announce themselves on the big stage for CSK in IPL 2020. One such name is of Ruturaj Gaikwad, a prolific batsman hailing from Maharashtra’s not so popular cricketing city, Pune. His batting style coupled with his acrobatic fielding abilities make him a perfect fit for modern day cricket.

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.
