Ruturaj Gaikwad equals Sachin Tendulkar's record, becomes joint-fastest Indian to score 1000 runs in IPL

Gaikwad, who took 31 innings to reach the landmark, hit Sunrisers Hyderabad 

paceman Marco Jansen for a biggie on the first ball of the sixth over to reach the four-digit mark in IPL.

The 25-year-old got his midas touch back with a belligerent 99 during the IPL match against SRH at the MCA stadium in Pune.

Gaikwad (99 off 57 balls), who won the Orange Cap last season, was at his destructive best as he smashed six sixes and as many fours

before falling short of a deserving hundred by just one run.
