CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad has come under fire from his teammate Deepak Chahar for winning the best catch award in a recent IPL match. Gaikwad took a remarkable running diving catch to dismiss well-set Vijay Shankar in the 18th over, earning him the accolade. However, Chahar believes his own catch, which came off the final ball of the innings, was overshadowed by Gaikwad’s award-winning catch. In a viral video, Chahar called Gaikwad a “shameless person” and demanded one of his awards. Gaikwad responded by emphasizing the effort and crucial situation behind his catch, acknowledging Chahar’s good return from injury.
CSK’s Victory and Gaikwad’s Remarkable Catch
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) secured a place in the IPL 2023 final with a resounding win over defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) in the Qualifier 1 match. Ruturaj Gaikwad played a pivotal role in CSK’s victory by scoring a gritty fifty, helping the team post a competitive total of 172 for 7. GT, on the other hand, struggled on the slow pitch of Chepauk and ended up with a total of 157 all out. Gaikwad’s exceptional running diving catch in the 18th over earned him the prize for the best catch of the contest.
Chahar’s Discontent and Gaikwad’s Response
Deepak Chahar expressed disappointment in a viral video released by IPL, claiming that Gaikwad’s award overshadowed his own catch. He called Gaikwad a “shameless person” and demanded one of his awards. In response, Gaikwad highlighted the crucial situation and effort behind his catch. He congratulated Chahar on his good catch and acknowledged his successful comeback from injury.
It appeared that Chahar may have pulled his hamstring while completing Vijay Shankar’s catch, but he confirmed his fitness after the match, stating his readiness to participate in the IPL 2023 final in Ahmedabad on Sunday.
This controversy has sparked debate among fans and media regarding the significance of different catches and the criteria for awarding the best catch of the match.
