Chennai Super Kings’ star opener Ruturaj Gaikwad smashed his maiden century in IPL in a match against Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi. He became the youngest CSK player to score a century in the IPL.
Batting against Rajasthan Royals, Gaikwad notched up the triple figures with a stunning six on the final ball of the innings. He returned back with an unbeaten score of 101 off 60 balls as CSK gave a challenging target of 190 runs to the Royals. Gaikwad smashed as many as nine fours and five sixes during his stunning knock of 101 runs to make a mockery of the Royals’ bowling attack in their 12th round encounter.
In the final over of the CSK’s innings, Jadeja faced four deliveries, leaving Gaikwad with two deliveries and he smashed a fantastic six off Mustafizur Rahman’s delivery to complete the coveted landmark.
