By scoring a half-century, Ruturaj achieved a feat which MS Dhoni himself could not do in the last five years.

Ruturaj Gaikwad’s bat spoke loudly on the ground of Chepauk. Ruturaj played a brilliant inning of 67 runs facing 58 balls.

Made A Half-Century Partnership With Mitchell:-

During this innings, Ruturaj hit 9 fours. After Rachin Ravindra returned to the pavilion cheaply, Ruturaj made a half-century partnership with Daryl Mitchell for the second wicket.

After Mitchell’s dismissal, Ruturaj stood at one end and gave license to Shivam Dubey to bat aggressively. Ruturaj gave Chennai its third win of this season by hitting a four off Anukul Roy.

The Captain Has Become The First Player From Chennai To Score A Fifty:-

In fact, Ruturaj Gaikwad has become the first player to score a fifty as captain for Chennai Super Kings in the last five years.

Even Dhoni has not been able to achieve this feat while being the captain in the last five years. At the same time, Ravindra Jadeja could not score a single half-century despite captaining in seven matches.

If captain Ruturaj set the tone for Chennai Super Kings with the bat, then Ravindra Jadeja and Tushar Deshpande stole the show with the ball. Jadeja took three wickets while spending just 18 runs.
