Ruturaj Gaikwad IPL

Gaikwad was bought by Chennai Super Kings at his base price INR 20 Lakhs for the 2019 IPL season. He made his debut for the franchise at the end of 2020 season. Despite CSK having a dismal campaign, Gaikwad emerged as a big positive for them. In the 2021 season too, he played a crucial role at the top along with Faf du Plessis.

Gaikwad is usually an opening batter and mostly bats in the top 3. He has scored loads of runs for Maharashtra in the white-ball formats. He is a solid batter player who relies on orthodox cricket shots at the top and rotates the strike well against the spinners. Gaikwad scored a match winning 132 in his debut match for Maharashtra at Vijay Hazare Trophy. Before his stint in IPL, he had a breakthrough season with India A where he scored 677 runs at an average of 112.

Ruturaj Gaikwad commends MS Dhoni for his evolution as a player. He not only calls Dhoni’s words ‘eye-catching’ but also says his words have been helpful in real life too. When Dhoni saw the spark in Ruturaj, he urged him to keep thinking about playing for India. Gaikwad has also had the privilege of working alongside Rahul Dravid who was the coach of India A.
