Ruturaj Gaikwad has been a consistent performer in India's domestic circuit, but his exploits in the Indian Premier League have put him under the spotlight. The right-handed opener has blended prudence and flair in equal measure to crack the T20 code. His ice-cool composure at the crease allows other batsmen to go about their destructive business, but that's not at all to suggest he is a shrinking violet. Gaikwad adheres to textbook shots to garner pretty runs, as he did yet again en route his fifty in the clash against Rajasthan Royals.
