TATA IPL 2022: Ruturaj Gaikwad Overtakes Sachin Tendulkar & Virat Kohli; Joins Elite List Of Batting Club

Ruturaj Gaikwad has owned a fabulous record while overtaking Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli in IPL as an opener in the league.

Ruturaj Gaikwad’s amazing ability to score big while opening for CSK has placed him above Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli in the IPL season. In his 25 innings, while opening the batting order, Gaikwad has been able to score 869 runs, edging out the likes of Sachin Tendulkar in the runs. The list is topped by KL Rahul who has scored 975 runs, followed by Ruturaj Gaikwad (869 runs), Virat Kohli (857), and Sachin Tendulkar (839).

Ruturaj Gaikwad is grappling with poor form in the IPL 2022 and has been able to score only 35 runs off 5 matches played. CSK has largely relied on the batting of Gaikwad, in fact, in the earlier season, Gaikwad helped CSK earn the title under MS Dhoni. He even earned an orange cap but the ongoing season has been traumatizing for the youngster.
