“Gaikwad scoring 100 coz Jadeja almost dented his chance to score 100. I have also gone through same situation, so can understand that” Sehwag said.

Gaikwad also won the Orange Cap for the season scoring 635 runs in 16 games at an average of 45.36 and a strike rate of 136.27 with four fifties and a century.

Ashish Nehra’s favourite moment in the IPL was the expression of Sunil Narine after he picked up the wicket of Gaikwad in the final. He dismissed the CSK opener for 32 getting him caught at long-off. The KKR mystery spinner ended with 16 wickets from 14 games. Together with Varun Chakravarthy, the KKR spin duo picked up 34 wickets in the season.
