Rituraj Gaikwad has performed brilliantly in IPL-2021.
Chennai Super Kings has reached the final of IPL 2021. This is the ninth time that the team has entered the final of the IPL. The reason for the team’s awesomeness this season is a young player. There is one experienced player in Chennai Super Kings called Dad’s Army, but a young player has looted the fair. The name of this player is Rituraj Gaikwad. This player is at number two in scoring runs in IPL 2021 and the way he is playing, it seems that he will occupy the first number.

The kind of performance he has done in this season, it is clear that before IPL 2022, the team of Chennai can retain him.
But for Rituraj Gaikwad, the beginning in IPL was not memorable. He had got corona before the start of IPL 2020. Due to this, he remained in quarantine for a long time. Then when he got a chance to debut, he got out without opening the account in the first match. Then five in the second match and in the third match went on without opening an account.
