Didn't feel the pressure of captaincy: Rituraj Gaikwad leader

Chennai, News Agency : Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore 1st Match of IPL 2024 MA It was held at Chidambaram Stadium. Rituraj Gaikwad was leading Chennai in this match. He led Chennai to a 6-wicket win in the first match. This victory is going to be special for Rituraj. When asked about leadership after this win, Rituraj said, I have always enjoyed it. Never took extra pressure. The captaincy experience has been dealt with earlier. I never took pressure. I also have Mahibhai.

In the match at Chepauk, Bangalore won the toss and batted first, setting a target of 174 runs against Chennai. Chennai reached the target of victory in 18.4 overs and at the cost of 4 wickets. The joy of winning the first match as captain could be seen on Rituraj's face. After the match, he said, a few 2-3 overs aside, he was in complete control. Another 10 to 15 runs less would have been nice, but they batted well in the last over. The dismissal of Faf and Maxwell proved to be a pivotal moment. We got 3 wickets early which allowed us to control some overs.

Appreciation of Ajinkya

Rituraj Gaikwad praised the team's experienced batsman Ajinkya Rahane. I think every player in our team is a natural stroke player. I think Ajjubhai (Ajinkya) is playing very positively. Everyone knows his responsibility. Which bowler wants to target and who doesn't. When you know exactly what you want to do, things become easier. Still need to work on 2-3 things. All batted well.
