In the opening match on Saturday, CSK will begin their title defence against last year’s runner-up Kolkata Knight Riders. All eyes will be on a few home-grown players who have wowed everyone with their performances and maturity. Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar believes Ravindra Jadeja and Ruturaj Gaikwad duo will play a crucial role for CSK.

Sunil Gavaskar On Rithuraj Gaikwad

Gavaskar is impressed with what he sees of Gaikwad and has high appreciation for the 25-year-old. “Ruturaj Gaikwad is another guy who has very few places to develop,” Gavaskar said. “In terms of Gaikwad’s development, there isn’t much that has to be done. He has all of the shots in the book, but his shot selection is the most amazing. He doesn’t back down from any shot he takes “Gavaskar made the remarks on the Star Sports show ‘Gameplan.’

“Gaikwad is not hesitant to play lofted shots when necessary. His shot selection has been excellent in the IPL. As a result, Ruturaj Gaikwad has very little to do. All he has to do is keep scoring runs as he did last season “Gavaskar continued.

Commentary On Jadeja’s Captaincy

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar also weighed in on the new CSK captain, Ravindra Jadeja. He believes Jadeja will be ready to take over as CSK captain if Dhoni decides to rest for a game or two during the forthcoming IPL.

Dhoni has been CSK’s captain since the league’s start in 2008. This year may very well be in his final IPL season. He already announced his retirement from international cricket.

“The way Ravindra Jadeja evolved as a player over the last few years is just brillaint. The way he is adjusting his game, and the way he analyses match circumstances.” Gavaskar made the remarks during an episode of Gameplan, which aired on Star Sports, the official broadcaster of the IPL. “If MS Dhoni decides to take a vacation, I wouldn’t be surprised if the captaincy is passed to Jadeja.” 

CSK’s Incredible Comeback

Last year, CSK staged a memorable comeback. CSK roared back in style after failing to qualify for the IPL 2020 playoffs. They finished first in their group and went on to win the championship. The team’s effort was all-around, with key players rising to the occasion. 

CSK’s success was the result of  the experience of Faf du Plessis and Dwayne Bravo, as well as budding star Ruturaj Gaikwad. Gaikwad won the Orange Cap at the end of the season after scoring 635 runs. Gaikwad was rewarded for his IPL success, earning him a spot in India’s limited-overs squads.

There are many sports in the world. Some people likes football, and others likes cricket or basketball. But I love to play cricket because it is a game of gentalman. I am a left-handed batsman and a left-arm orthodox bowler. I played an inter-college tournaments. Also, I represented my college cricket team as vice captain. Ms. Dhoni is my idol, and the Chennai Super Kings are my all-time favourite franchise.
