IPL 2022: Ravindra Jadeja Throws His Weight Behind Ruturaj Gaikwad

Chennai Super Kings‘ star opener Ruturaj Gaikwad continued with his poor form in the ongoing 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League.

Ruturaj Gaikwad, who was the highest run-scorer of IPL 2021, with 635 runs in 16 games, was hailed as the biggest find of the previous season. Gaikwad had also hit four fifties and one century in the previous season.

However, he hasn’t been able to give the best of his abilities for the four-time IPL champions in all three games so far. He hadn’t been able to contribute much with the bat as he was dismissed for three single-digit scores in all of CSK’s three games so far in IPL 2022.

In the opening game, the Maharashtra player was dismissed for a duck by Kolkata Knight Riders‘ pacer Umesh Yadav in the first game and he could only add one run in the second game against Lucknow Super Giants as he was dismissed by Ravi Bishnoi.

On Sunday, he was dismissed for a single against Punjab Kings; he edged Kagiso Rabada’s full-length delivery to Shikhar Dhawan in the slip who was waiting for the catch.
