MS Dhoni Reveals The Name of One of the Most Talented Players

Chennai Super Kings’ skipper MS Dhoni praised youngster Ruturaj Gaikwad, citing that the talented opener is “one of the most talented players going around”. Gaikwad smashed back-to-back fifties this season to help his side win convincingly.

“(The changes) are a conscious effort. We want to give games to people who haven’t played and we need them to grab those opportunities. Ruturaj we’d seen him in the nets, but then he got Covid positive and took 20 days. Unfortunate but he’ll remember this season,” said Dhoni.

“He’s one of the most talented players going around. What makes it difficult is he’s not somebody who speaks a lot! So sometimes it becomes difficult for the management to gauge a player,” he further added.

It is noteworthy that, Gaikwad was one of the two players who had tested positive for global pandemic novel COVID-19. Although he was featured in three matches but failed to contribute (0, 5, 0) and then he eventually dropped from the squad as well. After returned to the squad for the second innings, he has improved much and has been helping his side win while providing with fluent scores inside the powerplay.

“Once he started going in the innings, you could see that he was hitting the ball the way he wants to and he was planning. When we made him play the first game, he got out, stepped out. It becomes difficult to tell whether it was the pressure that made him step out or whether that’s his natural game. One ball isn’t enough,” Dhoni said.

Chennai became the first team to be out of the playoff race. Despite the fact that they are out, Chennai showed the never give up attitude and ended the season on a high note against Kings XI Punjab. Gaikwad once again showed his class with a quickfire 49-ball 62* which also included 6 fours and a six and steered his side to a 9-wicket win as well.
