Ruturaj Gaikwad Break Devon Conway’s Record In Chepauk

Chennai Super Kings captain Ruturaj Gaikwad is on fire!  In a dominant display at his home ground, Chepauk Stadium, Gaikwad not only snatched the IPL 2024 Orange Cap from Virat Kohli but also rewrote the record books for most runs scored by a CSK batsman at Chepauk in a single season!

 

Gaikwad’s blistering knock of 62 runs off just 38 balls against Punjab Kings propelled him past his teammate Devon Conway’s record of 390 runs set in IPL 2023.  This knock takes Gaikwad’s total for IPL 2024 at Chepauk to a staggering 396 runs, solidifying his position as the batting king of Chepauk this season.

 

But Gaikwad’s dominance extends beyond Chepauk.  He currently sits at the top of the IPL run-scorers’ list with an impressive 509 runs in just 10 innings!  This includes a brilliant century and a whopping four fifties, showcasing his remarkable consistency.

 

While Virat Kohli isn’t far behind with 500 runs and a similar record of a century and four fifties, Gaikwad edges him out with a slightly better average (63.62 vs Kohli’s 58.82) and a higher strike rate (146.69 vs Kohli’s 147.49).  However, with Kohli’s next match just around the corner, the race for the Orange Cap is far from over!

 

Gaikwad’s knock against Punjab Kings was a masterclass in controlled aggression.  He reached his fifty with a well-timed six off Sam Curran, showcasing his ability to accelerate the scoring when needed.  While CSK ultimately posted a modest total of 162 runs, Gaikwad’s contribution was undeniable.

 

This record-breaking performance at Chepauk further cements Gaikwad’s status as a rising star in Indian cricket.  With his consistent batting and leadership qualities, he’s proving to be a valuable asset for the Chennai Super Kings and a force to be reckoned with in the IPL!
