Ruturaj Gaikwad Makes History, Achieves Sensational Feat Against Australia

Ruturaj Gaikwad added another major milestone to his name during the fifth T20I encounter between India and Australia in Bengaluru on Sunday. Gaikwad finished the five-match series with 223 runs at an average of 55.75 – the most by any batter in a T20I bilateral series against Australia. Earlier, the record belonged to New Zealand’s Martin Guptill who scored 218 runs in five matches back in 2021. Although the youngster was dismissed for just 10 on Sunday, he was able to achieve the milestone thanks to brilliant performances in the past four matches. Overall, he is the third highest run-scorer in a single series among Indian batters behind KL Rahul and Virat Kohli.
