Aaj IPL Kaun Jeetega : Ruturaj Gaikwad’s Performance Against Left-arm Pacers in the IPL

Match 7 of IPL 2024 will witness Chennai Super Kings hosting Gujarat Titans. CSK claimed victory in their first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, with Ruturaj Gaikwad making his debut as captain, albeit scoring only 15 runs before being dismissed by left-arm seamer Yash Dayal. Gaikwad’s performance against left-arm pacers in the IPL has been challenging, with 13 dismissals in 29 encounters, resulting in a modest average of 23.69.

Specifically, New Zealand’s Trent Boult has proven to be a formidable opponent, dismissing Gaikwad three times in just four meetings, all within the powerplay overs. Gaikwad’s struggles against left-arm pace extend to the early overs, where he has fallen 10 times in the Powerplay, with a strike rate dipping to 112.35. Ahead of their match against Gujarat Titans, CSK must be wary of the threat posed by left-arm seamer Spencer Johnson, who recently impressed with two wickets in his IPL debut and was acquired by GT for Rs. 10 crore prior to the ongoing season, following his debut for the Australian national team.
