New Delhi: CSK faced Rajasthan Royals in the 47th match of IPL 2021. In this match, the Rajasthan batsmen gave their team a 7-wicket victory. CSK may have had to face defeat in this match, but this match was memorable for their team’s opening batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad. Gaikwad scored the best century in this match.
Gaikwad’s best century
Rituraj Gaikwad played an excellent innings of 101 not out in 60 balls at a strike rate of 168.33. In this innings, he hit 9 fours and 5 sixes. The most important thing was that Gaikwad completed his century by hitting a six on the last ball of the 20th over. This is the first century of his IPL career. With this, he has become the fourth batsman to score a century in this IPL season.
Will you get entry in T20 World Cup?
After Gaikwad’s century, it is also being emphasized that he can get a wild card entry in the T20 World Cup 2021. Gaikwad has been in excellent form this year and now he has also got the Orange Cap of IPL. In such a situation, it is not surprising if he is given a place in the World Cup team. Let us tell you that changes can be made in the T20 World Cup team till October 10.
This player’s card will be cut
If Rituraj Gaikwad is given a place in the World Cup team, then it is obvious that a player will have to be dropped. These players will be none other than Ishan Kishan. Ishan Kishan was given a place in the World Cup team as a reserve opener in place of Shikhar Dhawan. But his form in IPL has been very poor and due to this he has been dropped by Mumbai Indians. In such a situation, he can also be dropped from the World Cup team.
Did debut only last year
Rituraj Gaikwad made his IPL debut for Chennai Super Kings in the year 2020. In 18 matches of this tournament, he has completed a total of 712 runs at an average of 50.85 with a strike rate of 134.08. He has hit 1 century and 6 fifties so far. At the same time, during the tour of Sri Lanka this year, Gaikwad also made his international debut for Team India.
