Neither does Ruturaj help his cause. The right-handed batsman made 10 off 13 deliveries with a four against Rajasthan Royals, 5th off 16 balls with no four against Punjab Kings and 5 off 8th with a lonely four against Delhi capitals. These are also 20th runs in 37 balls with two fours in three games. Hardly any T20 stuff.
