New Delhi: In the 7th match of IPL 2022, the team of Lucknow Super Giants was in front of CSK. Batting first, CSK’s performance was amazing and this team put a score of 210 runs on the board. Even after this, the team of CSK was destined to lose in the end. But one batsman of CSK flopped badly. This batsman has already cut his card from Team India and now if it continues like this, then soon this player will be seen getting dropped from the IPL team as well.
A player has proved to be a big villain for CSK. This player is none other than the opening batsman of the team, Rituraj Gaikwad. Gaikwad, who was the hero of the last season, has been a complete flop this season. Gaikwad returned to the pavilion without opening an account against Delhi in the first match. In the second match, Gaikwad was run out after scoring just 1 run. Now Gaikwad has become a new trouble for captain Jadeja.
The luck of Rituraj Gaikwad is not supporting him at all. Gaikwad does not get much opportunities in Team India and even if he has got it, he would have been sitting outside getting injured. The captain likes Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul more than Gaikwad anyway. Gaikwad’s career seems to be coming to an end. For the first time in the team of CSK, there is a veteran opener like Devon Conway. In such a situation, if Gaikwad’s bat remains silent like this, then he will soon drop too.
Chennai Super Kings’ young opener Rituraj Gaikwad had made a surprising amount of runs in the entire season this year. In IPL 2021, he scored 635 runs in 16 matches at an average of 45.35 and strike rate of 136.26 and also won the Orange Cap. During this, he also scored the first IPL century of his career. He made this orange cap by leaving behind veteran players like Faf du Plessis and KL Rahul. Looking at his performance, one thing is clear that in the coming time he will become the most successful opener of Team India.
The Chennai Super Kings team, captained by Jadeja, includes many match-winners players. His eyes will be on winning the fifth title in the IPL. Most of the players in CSK team are above 30 years of age. Dhoni has always relied heavily on all-rounders. He is a master in team composition. He has won matches for CSK with his calm and smart mind. The team will now expect the same from Jadeja, who replaced Dhoni.
