In the 46th match of the ongoing season, Chennai Super Kings’ Ruturaj Gaikwad completes 1000 runs with an amazing six in the Indian Premier League versus Sunrisers Hyderabad at MCA stadium on Sunday.
With this, he joins Sachin Tendulkar as the joint fastest Indian player to score 1000 runs in the IPL, having done it in their 31st innings.
Ruturaj Gaikwad, the star opener for CSK, has returned to the batsman’s square. After a poor start in the first five games, he bounced back with a 48-ball 73 against Gujarat Titans and will continues to keep up his good form in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.
Chennai Super Kings got off to a solid start in the Indian Premier League against Sunrisers Hyderabad owing to Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway. The pair have so far stitched a 50-plus partnership after being asked to bat first, and are going stronger in the middle.
CSK have taken a risk and dropped Dwayne Bravo and Shivam Dube, while SRH have kept the same starting XI. The duo will be replaced by Devon Conway and Simarjeet Singh. Meanwhile, with legendary MS Dhoni back in charge, Chennai Super Kings will be hoping for a turnaround in their fortunes.
