IPL 2021: After impressive show against MI, CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad says, ‘It was taking responsibility and finding way’: After playing a match-winning knock of 88 runs against Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) opening batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad said that it was just about taking responsibility for his team and finding a way to reach a competitive score.

For CSK, Ruturaj Gaikwad had played an unbeaten inning of 88 runs as the MS Dhoni-led outfit posted 156/6 in the allotted twenty overs after being 24/4 inside the powerplay. “This is my fifth Man of the Match Award in 13 games. Obviously, the situation was tough, we had lost our top-order.

It was about taking the responsibility and finding a way to reach 120-130. I spent some time in the middle and I reassessed the target,” Ruturaj Gaikwad told Deepak Chahar in a video posted on iplt20.com.

“I talked with Ravindra Jadeja about building a partnership. Actually, we have had good preparation, we reached UAE before the other teams. We benefitted from practicing a lot,” Ruturaj Gaikwad added.
