MS Dhoni heaped praise on young Maharashtra batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad after Chennai Super Kings (CSK) beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by six wickets in Match 49 of IPL 2020 at the Dubai International Stadium on Thursday.
Chasing a stiff target of 173 runs to win, Gaikwad slammed a brilliant 72 off 53 deliveries. His knock was studded with six boundaries and two sixes.

“Ruturaj has shown the talent that he is. He came in and got positive with Covid. We didn’t have much time to have a look at him. He is one of the talented youngsters going around. He is not someone who speaks a lot. Once you go inside, you are the only one handling the pressure. When we made him play the first game, he stepped out and got out. But one ball is never enough. I think it is very exciting how he has grabbed his chances,” Dhoni said.
