If we say that the Dhoni effect has dominated Rituraj Gaikwad, then it is not wrong. Dhoni did not return as captain that Gaikwad befriended the form. Runs piled up. He was seen playing such an innings as was not seen in the last 8 matches. He scored so many runs in front of Sunrisers’ brilliant bowling attack that he even completed his 1000 runs in IPL.

Rituraj Gaikwad completed 1000 runs in his 31st IPL innings.  And, with this, equaled the Indian record recorded in the name of Sachin Tendulkar.
