Chennai Super Kings batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad has revealed how a chat with captain MS Dhoni helped him overcome his fear of failure in IPL 2020. He had scores of 0, 5 and 0 in his first three games before three consecutive half-centuries towards the end helped the Super Kings exit the tournament on a high.

Specifically, the Maharashtra batsman talked about his travails following Chennai’s 10-wicket thrashing at the hands of Mumbai Indians in Sharjah. “I knew the challenges lying ahead in the MI (Mumbai Indians) game, and I had prepared to face the likes of (Trent) Boult, (Jasprit) Bumrah and (James) Pattinson. But I think my dismissal kind of set the tone and we could never recover, getting bowled out for 110 odd,” Gaikwad toldĀ Sportstar.
