After two back-to-back failures, Ruturaj Gaikwad returned to the form with his maiden T20I half-century in the third game.

However, the right-handed batter once again failed in the fourth game. Only a single good score in four games is not enough at this level.


Ruturaj has only scored 86 runs in 4 matches so far. India might look to bring in Venkatesh Iyer who could play an attacking knock at the top and help Ishan Kishan to take his time to play big innings.
