Former Australian cricketer Michael Hussey lauded Ruturaj Gaikwad for his impressive performances in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022.

Gaikwad has emerged to be one of the finest batting talents in Indian cricket in the last few years. He has delivered consistent performances at the top order for Maharashtra and Chennai Super Kings in IPL.

Although Ruturaj Gaikwad has featured in only 9 T20Is and 1 ODI, he is a bright prospect for the Indian Cricket Team. In IPL 2020, he scored 204 runs in six innings and followed it by winning the orange cap with 635 runs in the 2021 season. With 368 runs in 2022, Ruturaj Gaikwad has garnered a total of 1207 runs in 36 IPL games at an average of 37.72.

Currently, Gaikwad is featured in the Vijay Hazare Trophy for Maharashtra. After scoring a scintillating 220* (scoring 43 runs in an over) against UP, he hit 168 against Assam in the semi-finals.
