Twitter Reaction: Fans react to Ruturaj Gaikwad departing on 99 – Saddest moment !

Mahendra Singh Dhoni took hold of the captaincy again and with that the old form of Chennai Super Kings is also back. Yesterday Jadeja stepped down from Captaincy and Dhoni today is leading CSK in a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The match is taking place in Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Kane led Hyderabad, won the toss and chose to bowl first. Inviting CSK to bat first SRH failed to take early wickets. CSK’s openers Rutu and Conway started the innings pretty well.

The former orange cap winner was out of form in this IPL but made a comeback against Gujrat Titans in their 6th match. Today against Hyderabad Ruturaj was seen in his old form again and started smashing all along the park with Devon Conway on the other side anchoring the innings.

The right hander made a fiery 99 of 57 with 6 sixes and 6 fours. Rutu fell short of just 1 run from getting his second IPL century. In the 19 th over while chasing his 100 Rutu got hold of the “nervous 90s” to T Natarajan and got a throw his wicket in the gully. It was a massive disappointment for him as well as the crowd. He walked back with his head down.

It was a clever delivery from the bowler to get out the set batsman. Bowled a slower one at just 121.1 kmph, short and outside off of which Ruturaj tried to cut it over backward point but failed to get the right elevation to clear the field. A simple catch for Bhuvneshwar ended a terrific knock.

CSK was earlier seen struggling to win matches as they only managed to win 2 out of 8 so far and sit at the bottom of the table. It’s hopeful that Dhoni’s CSK again makes a comeback as fans are showering love in twitter.
