Ruturaj Terms Loss Against LSG A “Tough Pill To Swallow”

Chennai Super Kings has moved down on the points table After their match against Lucknow Super Giants lost at chepauk. CSK has now dropped to the 5th spot on the table while LSG now proudly holds the 4th spot.

CSK’s captain just can’t catch a break. After replacing Rachin Ravindra by Daryl Mitchell, Gaikwad probably hoped to win the match. His team however lost to LSG by 6 wickets. CSK’s captain tried his best, by scoring a century of his own.

“Tough pill to swallow, but good game of cricket” – Ruturaj

In his post-match statement as the losing team captain, Gaikwad said:

“Tough pill to swallow, but good game of cricket. LSG played really well in the back end. We had the game in control till 13-14 overs, but Stoinis played a great innings. (On dew) It played a part, there was a huge amount of dew and it took our spinners out of the game. We could have otherwise controlled the game better and taken it deeper. But these are parts of the game, can’t control it.”

Thought our target wasn’t enough, adds the CSK captain

Ruturaj Gaikwad has assumed the captaincy position for CSK for the first time in IPL 2024. Adding to his statement after the match, the player said “Jaddu is batting at number 4 since we lost the second wicket within the powerplay. (On Dube’s entry point) Our thinking is clear that after the powerplay if there is a wicket, Shivam will come out to bat. We can’t force batters to get out after.”

The Player also said that he thought their target was not enough. “To be honest, I thought our target wasn’t enough, it was just about par because of the dew we’ve seen during our practice sessions. But credit to the way LSG batted.”
