‘Can’t tell seniors what to do’: CSK captain Ruturaj Gaikwad makes stunning revelation

With this convincing victory, CSK has climbed to the third position on the IPL 2024 points table. Their improved net run rate is a positive sign, and they look poised for continued success.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Ruturaj Gaikwad has emerged as a true leader, guiding his team to a dominant 78-run victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). His brilliant knock of 98 runs set the foundation for CSK’s massive total of 212/3.

Ruturaj Gaikwad: Leading Through Performance

Despite his on-field heroics, Ruturaj Gaikwad revealed a refreshing approach to leadership during the post-match presentation ceremony. When asked about his vocal presence in the dressing room, he surprised many with his response. “I’m not vocal,” he stated honestly. “Can’t tell seniors in the dressing room what to do. You have to take the back seat and let them do their job,” he explained. Gaikwad prioritizes respect and experience, leading by example with his exceptional batting performances rather than imposing his voice.

Focus on Team Success Over Personal Milestones

While falling two runs short of his second century of the season, Ruturaj Gaikwad displayed remarkable selflessness. He acknowledged his missed boundaries but expressed greater disappointment at not pushing the team score even higher. “I wasn’t thinking about the hundred,” he clarified. “Wanted to make sure we get to 220-odd.” This focus on the team’s success is a testament to his maturity as a captain.

CSK learning from mistakes: Ruturaj Gaikwad

Ruturaj Gaikwad readily identified areas for improvement from CSK’s previous match. “Last game we made some errors. Some loose balls here and there,” he admitted. However, against SRH, they displayed remarkable improvement. “Today we were outstanding in the field. Stuck to the plans and knew what the conditions were,” he said with satisfaction. The team’s adaptability and ability to learn from past experiences highlight Gaikwad’s leadership qualities.

High Praise for CSK Bowling Unit

Ruturaj Gaikwad wasn’t shy about giving credit where it’s due. He lauded Tushar Deshpande for his crucial wickets in the powerplay overs, praising his dedication and hard work. He also commended Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling performance in challenging conditions with dew impacting the game. “Special mention to Jaddu as well,” he stated. This shows Gaikwad’s willingness to acknowledge and appreciate the contributions of his teammates.
