New Delhi. There is less than 12 months left in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. The Indian cricket team has started building a player pool around senior members and this has given youngsters and other players a chance to stake their claim. A sure name among the frontrunners is Rituraj Gaikwad, whose stupendous form in the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022 has taken everyone by surprise. After seeing this brilliant performance of his, only one question is arising in everyone’s mind that why is he not a part of India’s ODI setup? And the answer to this question has been given by the star player of Team India.

Rituraj Gaikwad represents Maharashtra in domestic cricket and in just five matches in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022, the opener scored 660 runs at an impressive average of 220, including a double century. In the semi-finals of the competition, he became the first batsman to hit seven sixes in an over. While such a performance in any other era of Indian cricket would have resulted in an immediate return to the national setup, Gaikwad may have to wait a little longer given the competition for a spot.

Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin praised the 25-year-old player, but he believes that it will be very difficult for him to make a place in the playing XI. Ashwin said on his YouTube channel, “Since he (Gaikwad) is from India, who will he replace? They don’t even replace, but see who they are competing with. Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and we also have Rishabh Pant opening.

He further said, “India is really becoming a difficult country to play cricket. I mean, the competition for a spot is intensifying. And Rituraj is not intensifying it. He scored runs for fun. Amazing, well done, Rituraj Gaikwad.”

Rituraj Gaikwad represents Chennai Super Kings in the IPL and was the Orange Cap winner last year when the franchise won the title. Ashwin further said, “I am sure all the fans of CSK are very happy. It is only a matter of time that Rituraj Gaikwad will earn fame all over the world.
