Gaikwad’s best score is only 17 runs, which he scored against Bangalore on Tuesday. Gaikwad’s bat being silent like this is really surprising as this player was in very good form till the tournament. Gaikwad had rained runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. However, after that he was selected in Team India and since then he did not get to play many matches and then his form while sitting on the bench may also go away.
What mistake is Gaikwad doing?
Rituraj Gaikwad is unable to spend time at the crease. Also, he is looking very upset on the ball going outside the off-stump. On Tuesday, he tried to release Mohammad Siraj’s ball but the ball hit his bat and then he got four runs. Gaikwad’s struggle in this way clearly means that he is not able to read his footwork and even the line of the ball properly. This is the reason why he came to ask Virat Kohli for help. However, King Kohli himself is not in form. Till now, even big runs have not come out of his bat in IPL.
