“Waited 13 years,” Netizens calling this player as Adam Gilchrist of India after explosive batting for RCB in IPL 2024

Anuj Rawat’s phenomenal batting display at Chepauk MA Chidambaram stadium against CSK has earned him a tag of “Adam Gilchrist of India” by the fans who welcomed his inning with open arms.

“Anuj Gilchrist”, “Dinesh de Divilliers”, are a couple of names that might sound funny but the social media seems flooded after the duo – Anuj Rawat and Dinesh Karthik – took Royal Challengers Bangalore to a phenomenal total. Royal Challengers Bangalore seemed struggling when Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Rajat Patidar and Cameron Green lost early wickets at just 74 runs, leaving RCB clueless on reaching a defendable total of 150 runs, at least. However, the side played bold to score 173 – 6 against a pitch that seemed very slow and tricky.

Netizens were quick to hail the duo’s efforts as RCB ended up putting a solid total. A few of the names were “Anuj Gilchrist”. Anuj Rawat seems to be an exciting addition for the side as he displayed his phenomenal and explosive batting style against CSK when the pitch assisted the home team. Anuj Rawat’s inning while partnering it with Dinesh Karthik will uplift hopes of RCB who are yet missing AB de Villiers down the order.


RCB’s only concern, so far, has been over dependency on Virat Kohli. With the likes of Anuj Rawat stepping, the pressure eases off little from the shoulders of Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Dinesh Karthik. Surely, the RCB fans are skyrocketed after watching formidable side like RCB showing glimpse of maiden IPL title this year.
