The dynamic duo of Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have been in impressive form this season, providing brisk starts to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) most of the time this season. Ruturaj was already there with CSK since the 2020 season and did a commendable job with the magnificent Faf du Plessis till 2021.
Now, with Devon Conway joining the Yellow Army back in 2022, Gaikwad hasn't let his guard down and instead, both of them have done a commendable job.
Batting against Gujarat Titans in the Qualifier 1, they stitched another 50-run stand which was their ninth 50+ score together batting for CSK. They have levelled the likes of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja becoming the fourth joint-highest partnership maker for the team.
