Indian batter Ruturaj Gaikwad said that he wants to do well in all three formats of the game after enjoying great success with the bat in the recent Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022. Gaikwad said that he is working hard in order to achieve that.
Notably, in the recent Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022, Ruturaj scored 660 runs in five matches with four centuries, including the highest score of 220*.
Now, he is looking forward to the upcoming IPL 2023 while revealing CSK is likely to hold a training camp after the upcoming mini-auction on December 23 in Kochi.
As reported by PTI, Ruturaj Gaikwad said: “Though I have scored runs in T20 cricket, I want to play and do well in 50-overs format and Tests too. Only then will one’s cricketing career be complete.”
He continued, “ The Chennai Super Kings team is preparing for the 2023 IPL season. There would possibly be training camps after the player auction is held. In the 2022 season, the team was hit following injuries to key players. A T20 match is decided based on the performances of the players on the day. We will bounce back this season.”
Gaikwad is confident he will earn his place back in the Indian team soon, saying he is aiming to score a lot of runs in the big matches.
The 25-year-old also feels the team should have a strong middle order to build on a start of about 100 runs in the first 20 overs to make a big total in ODI cricket.
He signed off by saying, “I want to play with more focus. My aim is to score more runs in big matches. I work thinking how to play well for the team and win. If you score 100 runs in the first 20 overs in ODIs, you can reach a big score. Also, batting should be strong in the middle order.”
