IPL 2024’s most unlucky captain? Ruturaj Gaikwad loses 10th toss in 11 matches

IPL 2024’s most unlucky captain? Ruturaj Gaikwad loses 10th toss in 11 matches

Gaikwad has the worst toss win percentage this season with his 1-7 record, but Shubman Gill isn't far behind with his 2-6 record.

Luck plays an important factor in cricket. Some of the biggest victories in the history of the sport have been influenced by luck. What if India had won the toss in the ODI World Cup 2023 Final or the ball hadn’t hit Ben Stokes bat and gone to the boundary? It seems like luck is evading Chennai Super Kings skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad.

Although his team is ranked fifth on the IPL 2024 points table, he’s lost 10 tosses in 11 matches. Ruturaj Gaikwad won three and lost three matches after losing the toss. The only time he’s won the toss, CSK emerged victorious. After getting unlucky in the CSK vs PBKS match, he said, “Nothing different, but the coin toss is something I need to work on. I’ve lost seven in a row, I think.”
