Ruturaj Gaikwad becomes first Chennai Super Kings captain to score IPL century, breaks MS Dhoni’s record

The new skipper of the Chennai Super Kings Ruturaj Gaikwad has become the first captain from the franchise to score a century in the Indian Premier League. The right-handed opening batter achieved the massive milestone during CSK’s clash against Lucknow Super Giants at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.

Gaikwad batted with great composure to stitch his innings against the Super Giants. While most of the other batters seemed to struggle, Gaikwad played a captain’s knock. He got to his hundred in 56 balls with a four over covers in the 18th over. He carried his team right from the start even though the other batters struggled from the other end. Gaikwad ended the innings unbeaten at 108 from 60 balls. His stroke-filled knock was laced with 12 fours and three sixes.
