While the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batting unit faltered in the UAE’s men’s opening match at the IPL 2021, Ruturaj Gaikwad kept his nerve to score the fifty-sixth in an IPL match against the Indians in Mumbai (MI). The 24-year-old saved Chennai’s rickety innings, helping them cross the 150 point mark that once seemed distant.
Gaikwad scored an unbeaten 88 – which included 9 fours and a 4 max – and Dwayne Bravo scored 23 of 8 balls to help CSK reach 156/6 in 20 hits. Gaikwad 88* is the highest single score ever against CSK-MI.
“I’m pretty tired now, but I’m proud to take the turns for my team. My job has been to bat just long enough at the time (when they lost early wickets). You always have to start over. Hogi, it’s good to get off to a great start. It’s a little gateway. It’s two paced and there’s a little bit of spin for the spinners too,” he said in the innings break.
Gaikwad, who has consistently performed well with the Maharashtra state team, was also impressive in the first half of IPL 2021, scoring two half centuries. In the 2020 season, he scored 204 runs in six matches with the highest score of 72.
Earlier, the fast paced pair of Mumbai Indians Adam Milne and Trent Bolt wrote a book about Chennai’s top-notch meltdown in Dubai where the duo took 11 runs for three overs. Bolt fave du Plessis kicked out for a duck the first time, before Milne kicked out Moein Ali for a duck the next time as well.
Three-time champion CSK suffered another blow when Ampati Ryodo walked off the field with a wrist injury, before Bolt sent off Suresh Raina for four. Captain MS Dhoni was the fourth hit man to leave Chennai with only 24 hits at the end of the powerplay.
