Ruturaj Gaikwad looked in top-notch form when he played Anrich Nortje with ease as the situation demanded. Indian team head coach, Rahul Dravid, had clarified that the team management will look to throw a maximum number of changes to the playing XI to stabilize the bench strength of the side. This is fruiting well as Gaikwad triumphed against the speedster Anrich Nortje like he gleamed his bat in the domestic cricket. The opener-batsman who hasn’t lived up to the expectations, so far, in International cricket finally made a statement in the 3rd T20I why he is the frontrunner to lead the charge as an opener.
Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 57 off 35 balls but his shot selection stole the show. Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj paved a way for a huge score while smashing South African bowlers across the park – nearly, deriding the bowling attack that dominated the Indian side through the series.
