Ruturaj has set the ongoing IPL 2021 on fire with his blistering knocks. Gaikwad, slammed his maiden IPL ton on Saturday in the match against Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi in a most thrilling way, hitting the final ball of the innings for a maximum.

“Look, I think CSK has got a couple of batters who look at like golden form. I do not know what to say. The way Ruturaj Gaikwad has been batting has been absolutely wonderful to watch. It is going to be a challenge,” Ashwin said in a video posted on the official Twitter handle of DC.

“CSK bat deep, bat aggressively. They batted aggressively against us at the Wankhede as well. It will be at the Dubai stadium, the pitch has been good there, I am looking at the batting dish out the game,” he added.

Both CSK and DC have lost just one match in the UAE leg and were the first two teams to book a spot in the playoffs. Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni would want their teams to finish in the top two as it will give DC and CSK two shots at reaching the IPL 2021 finals.
