One player in Indian cricket has created a blast in the last few years. Rituraj Gaikwad, who rained runs in the Indian Premier League, has hit a hat-trick of centuries in Vijay Hazare. In the domestic one-day tournament of BCCI, this batsman scored three centuries in the last four days. After this performance, his claim in Team India is getting stronger.
On Saturday, Rituraj continued his stellar form and scored another century. Against Keller, the Maharashtra captain scored a brilliant century in 110 balls. This innings of Ritu has increased the problems of opener Shikhar Dhawan, who is struggling to save his place in the Indian team. In Vijay Hazare, this is the batsman’s third century in four days. India has to play a three-match ODI series on the South Africa tour. After such a stellar performance of Ritu for this tour, it is considered certain to be selected.
3rd century in four days:
Ritu started the Vijay Hazare Trophy by scoring 136 runs in 112 balls against Madhya Pradesh in the first match. He scored 14 fours and 4 sixes in this innings. After this, in the second match against Chhattisgarh, Ritu’s bat made an even bigger innings and scored an unbeaten 154. He faced 143 balls in this match and hit 14 fours and 5 sixes. Now playing another century against Kerala, this batsman has strengthened the claim in Team India.
A big hit in IPL:

In 16 matches of the tournament, this batsman scored a total of 635 runs on the basis of 1 century and 4 half-centuries.
