The Maharashtra batsman smashed three fifties in a row in the last three games. His sensational batting effort assisted CSK to win the last three matches.
With that special effort from a special batsman, CSK avoided the humiliation of a bottom-place finish and went on to finish 7th in the table. Rajasthan Royals finished at the bottom of the table due to poor Net Run Rate.
The 23-year-old featured in 6 games for CSK in the last season where he scored 204 runs at a superb batting average of 51. He maintained a good strike rate of 120.71 and smashed 16 fours and 6 maximums last season.
Meanwhile, Ruturaj Gaikwad showcased his mettle once again in the 14th edition of the IPL. He has been one of the consistent scores for CSK this season.
Gaikwad is the fourth-leading run-scorer in this season’s IPL (533 runs). Moreover, he is the second-highest run-scorer behind South African stalwart Faf du Plessis (546 runs).
Ruturaj Gaikwad dating rumours once again go viral on the internet
When IPL 2021 was suspended due to a coronavirus pandemic, Ruturaj has been a busy man on social media. A popular Marathi actress by the name of Sayali Sanjeev posted a few pictures on her official Instagram handle.
Meanwhile, CSK star batsman Ruturaj left an adorable comment on the post. The comment read, “Woahh😍♥️.” The comment instantly caught the attention of the cricket fraternity.
In response, one of the top actresses in the Marathi film industry also took time to reply to his word, “♥️♥️♥️♥️🙈”. The post and the replies became the talk of the town on social media platforms.
Recently, Deepak Chahar made the headlines after he surprised his girlfriend in Dubai. The CSK paceman proposed to his girlfriend and exchanged rings after the game against Punjab Kings.
Soon after that, fans also started to talk about Gaikwad-Sayali. Earlier, there were doubts about whether the couple is in a relationship. While fans were making things up, Gaikwad decided to rubbish the rumours by posting a story.
“Only bowlers could take my wicket, that too clean bowled. Not anyone else. And whoever wanted to understand, have understood”, CSK star said jokingly.
