Ruturaj Gaikwad CSK IPL 2022

There is not really any record in the game of cricket that Sachin Tendulkar had not achieved in his playing days. The master blaster was way ahead of his times in his playing days. He was in the fag end of his career when the Indian Premier League started, but there too he was one of the most consistent batters in the tournament in its initial years.

He also won the orange cap in the tournament to show his authority in T20 cricket as well. There is another record in IPL which he held up until Sunday and that was of being the quickest batter to score 1000 runs in IPL in terms of innings. But on Sunday, Chennai Super Kings batter Ruturaj Gaikwad equalled his record.

In the process, he also equalled Master Blaster’s record of hitting 1000 runs in 31 IPL innings. Gaikwad slammed Marco Jansen for a maximum on the first ball of the sixth over to reach the four-digit mark in IPL.

Gaikwad’s 99 helped CSK put up over 200 runs on the board as CSK is looking to turn things around in the tournament as MS Dhoni has returned to lead the side in the rest of the tournament after Ravindra Jadeja relinquished captaincy on Saturday.
