Following the team’s four consecutive losses in the IPL 2022 season, Chennai Super Kings opener Ruturaj Gaikwad was only able to hit 35 runs in five matches.
Ruturaj Gaikwad was retained by the CSK ahead of the 2022 season of the league for INR 6 crore after 16 matches, 635 runs, and a best score of 101* in the 2021 season of the league.
The Chennai Super Kings were able to get his skills at his base price of INR 20 lacs at the IPL 2019 Player Auction. Despite being their most reliable opener, he had a rough start to the season, going 0(4), 1(4), 1(4), 16(13), and 17(16) in his first five matches.
Apart from the unavailability of Deepak Chahar, the form of opener Ruturaj Gaikwad is another major factor. Gaikwad, who won the Orange Cap for most runs in 2021, has failed to deliver, and CSK has suffered as a result. The defending champions, Chennai Super Kings, have lost four games in a row and are failed to win.
