Three-time champions Chennai Super Kings have been eliminated from the IPL-13 playoff round, but team opener Rituraj Gaikwad has said that the atmosphere in the dressing room is still very calm and it does not seem that Chennai is out of the tournament. It’s done.
Chennai failed to make it to the playoffs for the first time in IPL history. Chennai registered their fifth win in the tournament by defeating Kolkata Knight Riders by six wickets in a match played at Dubai International Stadium on Thursday.
Rituraj scored 72 runs with the help of six fours and two sixes from 53 balls to win the team. During a conversation with his teammate Shane Watson, Gaikwad said, “Of course, I want to continue my form and win the match for the team.”
Meanwhile, legendary Australian all-rounder Watson also praised Gaikwad fiercely. Watson said, ‘It is a matter of pride for me to see Rituraj batting like this. For a youngster to perform like this on a big stage like IPL, it affects very much. Chennai now have to play their last match in the league against Kings XI Punjab on Sunday.
