His T-20I debut was against Sri Lanka on July 28, 2021.

Vijay Hazare Tournament

Currently, the Vijay Hazare Trophy is going on in India.

The Vijay Hazare Trophy is also known as the Ranji One-Day Trophy.

It is managed by the Board of Control of Cricket in India.

The Vijay Hazare Trophy took place for the first time in 2002–2003.

A total of 38 teams named after different states and cities participated in the tournament.

Tamil Nadu has been the most successful team, as they have won the trophy five times.

This trophy has always provided the Indian team with great talent.

Record

The quarterfinal match was played against the Maharashtra team and Uttar Pradesh.

The Maharastra team was at 272/5 by the end of the 48th over.
Ruturaj was at 165 runs when magic intervened.

Shiva Singh came to bowl the 49th over when Ruturaj started to hit sixes, hitting the first one along the wide line.

After that, the second one was smashed straight above the bowler’s head.

The third comes along the square leg, followed by the fourth over the long shot.

The fifth pitch was thrown in the same direction as the umpire signaled a no-ball.

He hit the six over long-on in the free hit to complete his double century.

So far, six sixes have been hit in five legal deliveries, with the sixth counted as a no-ball.

When Ruturaj set the world record, the last ball of the over went deep in midwicket.

He created the world record by hitting seven sixes in an over and getting 43 runs from that over.

By doing so, Gaikwad becomes the first batsman in limited-overs cricket to score 43 runs in an over.

This has only been done once in List A, by Joe Carter and Brett Hampton of the Northern Districts against the Central Districts in Hamilton in 2018.
