Ruturaj Gaikwad (Chennai Super Kings):
The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) opening batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad first came into the picture in IPL 2020 which was held in UAE. Gaikwad consistently failed to score runs for his team in the previous season of IPL and recorded several low scores.
Despite scoring low, his backing from CSK was huge, MS Dhoni himself backed the cricketer and he flourished at the back-end of the tournament.
