Legendary cricketer Dilip Vengsarkar feels that India should pick in-form batter Ruturaj Gaikwad in their squad for the ODI series against South Africa.

Ruturaj has been in prime form in recent times. Earlier, the Chennai Super Kings’ opener became the youngest to bag an Orange Cap in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, and has now slammed three consecutive tons in Vijay Hazare Trophy, which made him a strong contender for the Indian ODI squad.

Vengsarkar said that the selectors should give Ruturaj the opportunity to prove his worth in national colours.

You must pick a man in form. How many more runs does he need to score to prove himself? It is high time the selectors pick him straight away and give him a proper run, Vengsarkar said.
