“Look, I think CSK have got a couple of batters who look at like, golden form. I don’t know what else to say. The way Ruturaj Gaikwad has been batting has been wonderful to watch. I’ve enjoyed every single moment of how he had to bat. And it’s going to be a challenge, right?," said Ashwin in a video posted by the franchise on Monday.

The Pune-based opener Gaikwad is a standout performer in the second leg of IPL 2021 and is placed at number 2 with 508 runs in 12 matches at an average of 50.80 and strike rate of 140.33. He has put the stage on blaze with an unbeaten 101 against Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

Ahead of the match against Chennai on Monday, Ashwin commented, “CSK bat deep, bat aggressively. They batted aggressively against us at the Wankhede as well. It’ll be at the Dubai Stadium. So the pitch has been good at Dubai, so I’m expecting quite a good batting dish out a game. Looking forward to the challenge."
