Ruturaj Gaikwad cut from same cloth as MS Dhoni, unfair to term his batting slow: Stephen Fleming


MUMBAI: Chennai Super Kings captain Ruturaj Gaikwad is cut from the same cloth as MS Dhoni and it is unfair to term the former “slow” while batting, said head coach Stephen Fleming here on Saturday.

Gaikwad, who replaced Dhoni as the CSK captain at the beginning of this IPL, has had a mixed start to his leadership stint losing two away games and winning three at home. But at the same time, the 27-year-old Gaikwad has been criticised for “slow” batting.

The right-handed opening batter has so far garnered 155 runs in five matches with a strike rate of 117.42. (PTI)
