When Ruturaj Gaikwad arrived in the IPL stage in 2020 for Chennai Super Kings, he was the second-choice opener for the yellow side. The right-handed opening batter ensured he made great use of the least of opportunities he received in the first season. This made him the front-line opening batter for the following season, where he ended as the Orange Cap winner. He and his opening partner, Faf du Plessis, scored 600+ runs in that title-winning campaign for CSK.

He and CSK didn’t live up to their potential in the 2022 edition of the tournament but came back strong in 2023.

This article will list the season-wise batting performances of Ruturaj Gaikwad in the Indian Premier League.
