Ruturaj Gaikwad Gave An Epic Response When Asked About His Scintillating Shots

Ruturaj Gaikwad made all the difference last night as he stole the game from Kolkata Knight Riders’ by playing a powerful knock. The 23-year-old Ruturaj Gaikwad became the hero of the Super Kings as he played a powerful knock and helped his team win the match.

Chasing a total of 173-runs, Ruturaj Gaikwad stood strong from one end, while the wickets kept falling at the other end. Playing a stunning knock, Gaikwad scored 72 runs off 53 balls, hitting 6 fours and 2 sixes. He remained strong before getting in the 18th over of the match. Later, Ravindra Jadeja played a crucial knock and assured that Gaikwad’s hard-work won’t get wasted.

This was Ruturaj’s second consecutive half-century to lead his team to victory against KKR. In their previous match, he had scored an unbeaten 65 to lead his team to victory over Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Later, during the post-match presentation ceremony, Ruturaj Gaikwad looked in a happy space. He was asked about the reason for the power behind his scintillating shots. Responding to the same, Gaikwad with a grin on his face said he works hard in the gym and has six-pack abs as well. He said:

I do work hard in the gym and I have a six pack and all,”

Ruturaj Gaikwad also came up with some sweet words while answering questions. He expressed his feelings about how the knock has helped him gain confidence. He also revealed that he was following the advice of MS Dhoni. He said:

“Feeling good, pretty confident. thankfully they’ve both come in wins. I’ve backed myself because both innings I got out when the situations were a little tough. I knew if i get the opportunity to open and get my time, I would do well. So the confidence was there. Covid has made me tough. Our captain always says to face any situation with a smile. It was difficult but I tried to do it. It made me stay in the present.”

Well, not just Ruturaj had all the nice things to say about MS Dhoni but in fact, MS Dhoni also showered praises on the young talent of CSK. Calling him one of the most talented youngsters around, MS Dhoni showered praises on Ruturaj. He said:

He’s one of the most talented youngsters around. What makes it difficult is he’s not somebody who speaks a lot. So sometimes it becomes difficult for the management to gauge a player. Once he started going in the innings, you could see that he was hitting the ball the way he wants.”

He added:

“When we made him play the first game, he got out after stepping out. It was difficult to tell whether it was pressure that made him step out or whether that’s his natural game. One ball isn’t enough, I think it is very exciting how he has grabbed his chances.”
