    Ruturaj Gaikwad - Indian right-hand opener

    He's 24 years old. He's yet to play for India yet, but these are his domestic stats:

    FC - 21 matches, 38.54 avg, 4 100s, 6 50s

    List A - 59 matches, 47.87 avg, 7 100s, 16 50s

    T20 - 44 matches, 32.25 avg, 0 100s, 10 50s


    In the 12 IPL matches he's played, he averages 39.60, including a match-winning 75 (44) today for CSK in a 170-run chase, and took apart Rashid Khan (but didn't get the last laugh).

    What are your opinions of him?


    Arsenal all the way!! (and Pakistan, of course!)

    Looks like a decent prospect, more reliable than Shaw.

    Him, Padikal and Gill are already a very useful top 3

    A highly impressive player. But it’s really difficult to see him getting many chances with the options India have. He has even improved from last season where he looked good in the last few games.

    He scored 4 fours of Rashid. One time edge dropped by Bairstow and ball went for four. And got clean bowled trying to defend in a t20 game. Not impressed yet.

    Looks a better ODI prospect.

    A slow and scratchy starter but once set he find gaps like how Kohli did. He either gets out under a score of 10 or goes on to score a 50+ knock.

    Its unbelievable how much india has. He would walk into the starting xi of all other asian teams. He's better than any batsman Pakistan has produced in its history. Such a shame he cant get into the GOAT indian team. 5th best opener in Asia behind Rohit, Dhawan , Gill and Shaw.

    What will be Indian team batting after retirements of Rohit and Kohli is already clear to Indian fans now. We have lots of batting talent coming in.

    This will be our batting in future:-

    Shaw
    Paddikal
    Gill
    Pant(wkt)
    KL
    Pandya

    The trio of Shaw, Gill and Paddikal will rule the top 3 and the fascinating trio of Pant, KL and Pandya will continue to make life tough for some.

    He looks like a younger version of Rahane with his touch and feel for the ball and effortless stroke making. Also has a better range. Yet to be tested against real pace and bounce I suppose.


    If he bowls with a full sleeve and is an off-spinner, rest assured he chucks. Amen

    Brian Lara hails Ruturaj Gaikwad, says CSK opener is in 'KL Rahul category'

    Over the last year, few young Indian batsmen have impressed as much as Ruturaj Gaikwad in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Since coming into the Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) playing XI towards the latter end of last season, he has barely put a foot wrong and earned plaudits from the cricket community. West Indies batting legend Brian Lara is the latest to lavish praise on him.

    Despite CSK losing their first game of the UAE leg to Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Saturday in Abu Dhabi, Gaikwad won the Man-of-The-Match award for a splendid century. The 24-year-old reached his maiden IPL century in 60 balls to help side register a big total of 189 on the board.

    Lara was among those left massively impressed by the CSK openers' efforts. The former West Indies skipper hailed Gaikwad's innings as a complete show of batsmanship and praised his acceleration in the final overs.

    Talking to Star Sports, he said, "Yeah, he could have been 135 if he had got more strike in the end overs. But it was a complete show of batsmanship. That's what I like about him, seeing how he put that innings together, how he surged in the second half of the innings. He was just tremendous to watch,"

    Lara further praised his ability to get runs by playing proper cricketing shots. "He shows that you can play good cricket shots and still score big runs. And that's what I am proud of as a batsman. It was just remarkable and unbelievable," he said.

    He added, "I will put him now in the KL Rahul category."

    IPL 2021: Hopefully Ruturaj Gaikwad Will Play For India One Day, Says Chennai Super Kings' Moeen Ali

    CSK vs KKR: Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Moeen Ali praised his teammate Ruturaj Gaikwad for his breakthrough performance in the Indian Premier League 2021 and said he is hopeful that the opener will play for India one day.

    Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Moeen Ali praised his teammate Ruturaj Gaikwad for his breakthrough performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 and said he is hopeful that the opener will play for India one day. Ali himself played a brilliant knock of 37 runs off 20 balls against KKR to help CSK post a challenging 192/3 in the final match of IPL 2021 on Friday. "He (Ruturaj) has got no weakness. He's so calm and has got every shot. Hopefully, in the future he will play for India," said the English all-rounder in a post-match presentation.

    CSK's Ruturaj Gaikwad won the Orange Cap as he ended with 635 runs in 16 games.


    Moeen Ali also lauded the entire CSK franchise for the thrilling season.

    "Can't describe how I'm feeling. To do it with this franchise is great. So calm and so clear in what they want to do (on CSK). No changes. Could've been dropped a couple of games ago. It's such a grounded and humble team," he said.

    Uthappa also lauded the support staff for motivating him during the time when he was not included in the playing XI.

    "I am grateful to you (CSK) guys for the amount of communication extended to me during the course of the tournament, especially when I wasn't playing," Uthappa said.

    "The conversations that you (Fleming) had with me during the practice. The conversations Huss (Michael Hussey) had with me during the practice and the entire support staff has been of great help and that's what got me going," he added.

    CSK, who posted 192/3 on the board on the back of du Plessis' brilliant 86, restricted KKR to 165/9 and sealed a 27-run win. The side has previously won the tournament in 2010, 2011, and 2018.

    That FC average isnít very good, the same stats suggest that he seems sorted in the shorter versions.

    If so many people are vouching for him so strongly, the lad must have something, I guess.

    Really hard to have a test career as a opener with sub-par domestic record. He will have to score 1000+ runs per ranji to considered for the highly contested spot.

    'He went to England at 16, scored big hundreds': Vengsarkar wants selectors to pick India youngster 'straight away'

    As for Gaikwad, former India batsman and chairman of selectors Dilip Vengsarkar recalled his early memories of the 24-year-old, reminiscing how the batsman captivated his imagination at the tender age of 10 and was fast-tracked.

    The IPL over the years has gifted Indian cricket some young and promising talents – look no further than Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah – and this year was no exception. As eight teams competed for the biggest prize in franchise T20 cricket, with Chennai Super Kings emerging as winners, IPL 2021 produced youngsters who could definitely prove to be India material in the time to come.

    This year, we saw the likes of Kartik Tyagi and Arshdeep Singh bowl splendidly in the death overs, while the batting duo of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Venkatesh Iyer emerged as one of the positives for their respective franchises. More so Iyer, who did not play a single game during the India leg and turned the fortunes of KKR in the UAE, scoring 370 runs from 10 matches.

    As for Gaikwad, former India batsman and chairman of selectors Dilip Vengsarkar recalled his early memories of the 24-year-old, reminiscing how the batsman captivated his imagination at the tender age of 10 and was fast-tracked.

    "He came to our Pune academy when he was 10. We choose players for our academy (based on ability), we just don’t get everybody. So, he was one of those young players we chose because he had excellent skills,” Vengsarkar told Khaleej Times.

    "I also took him to England when he was around 16. I take my academy team to England every year to Lancashire. We play 10 matches every year. He scored hundreds in most of the games, and he scored big hundreds, the 160s, 170s."


    Gaikwad played six games in IPL 2020, scoring over 200 runs but really came into his elements this season. When the IPL 2021 began, Gaikwad was an uncapped India player, but that changed between the end of the first half and the beginning of the second. Gaikwad never looked back, and ended the year with 635 runs, becoming the youngest player to win the Orange Cap. With what Gaikwad has to offer, Vengsarkar reckons the selectors need to not waste time and include him in the team at the earliest.

    "He was scoring the half centuries, so I sent a message to him and asked him to play 20 overs. I said, 'you would score a hundred and the team would score 200 if you play 20 overs. And that's what he did against Rajasthan Royals. He played 20 overs and scored a brilliant hundred. Chennai lost the match because Rajasthan played very well that day," Vengsarkar said.

    "He has the game and he is mentally strong. The selectors must give him an opportunity. When you pick a guy who is in form, it helps. He is also young. If the selectors are convinced about his talent and temperament, then he should be picked straight away."
