Indian Premier League 2022 has successfully completed six weeks of scintillating cricket. With batters sending the ball out of the park and bowlers hitting the toes of the batters, the audience is set to experience some exciting on-field action as the playoff stage approaches.
Only 19 league-stage games are left in the tournament and the top four are yet to be decided. Still, eight teams are in the race to get a berth in the playoffs. Out of those eight teams, three are leveled with 10 points each. At the end, it might again come to the net run rate as a decider for the top four spots.
The 15th edition of IPL is done with six weeks of exceptional cricketing display. This week, many batters neared to score a ton but were unable to. Let’s see who made it to the best XI of the sixth week of IPL 2022:
1. Ruturaj Gaikwad (CSK)
After a string of low scores, Ruturaj finally got in tune against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday in Pune. As MCA Stadium, Pune works like a charm for the youngster, he did not disappoint his side this time as well. CSK won this game by 13 runs to keep their hopes alive in the tournament.
Ruturaj’s incredible knock of 99 runs came off just 57 deliveries. He anchored the innings well and took the team’s total up to 202. However, nervous nineties got the better of the youngster and he missed a well-deserved century.
Ruturaj fell for T Natarajan’s full-length delivery and found Bhuvneshwar catching at point. Gaikwad managed to add only 28 runs in the match against RCB. As Chennai Super Kings got virtually knocked out of the playoff race by losing to RCB by 13 runs, Ruturaj Gaikwad’s efforts are all in vain now.
