The batsman of the Indian team has blown the senses of the batsmen of his team. This may sound strange to you, but it is true. We are talking about opener Rituraj Gaikwad who has been making his own team’s batsmen stunned by playing big innings one after the other. And these batsmen are players like Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, and Shubman Gill, who has debuted in ODI cricket.
Tehelka was Created by Playing a Century Inning Against Chhattisgarh
In the match played between Maharashtra and Kerala, Gaikwad played a quick inning of 24 runs on Saturday. During this, he hit 9 fours and 3 sixes. However, his century could not win the team and Kerala won the match by 4 wickets. This is Gaikwad’s third century in this tournament so far. Even before this, he has created panic by playing a century against Chhattisgarh in Madhya Pradesh. Let’s take a look at Gaikwad’s performance so far.
