Ruturaj Gaikwad had a stellar season last year. He finished the tournament as the highest run-getter (Orange Cap winner). In 16 IPL 2021 matches, he managed to score 635 runs at an average of 45.36 and a strike rate of close to 140.
He returned to form against Gujarat, scoring 73 runs after another disappointing start to his IPL 2022 campaign. He has amassed only 237 runs averaging a mere 26.33 but his return to form will increase CSK fans’ hopes. He missed out on scoring a ton against SunRisers Hyderabad by a whisker as he was dismissed after scoring 99 runs. He put on a 182 runs opening stand with Devon Conway.
