The rift between star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Chennai Super Kings is not going away. Jadeja is completely cut from Chennai Super Kings and is not in touch with the franchise. The four-time champion CSK team has treated its players like a family. The team supports the players in every way but due to internal differences in season-15, Jadeja has decided to part ways with CSK. After returning from the overseas tour, Jadeja has gone for rehab at the NCA in Bengaluru but during this time he has not had any contact with CSK.
Jadeja was appointed as the captain of the team at the beginning of the 15th season of IPL. Under his captaincy, CSK had to face consecutive defeats due to which he quit the captaincy in the middle of the season. It is believed that Jadeja is one of the contenders for the captaincy of the national team. In such a way, taking away the captaincy of CSK from him in the middle of the season is a bitter experience for him. This is why he has apparently decided to cut all ties with the franchise.
After stepping down as captain in IPL 2022, Jadeja also left Team Hotel. The franchise has not been able to resolve its differences since then. Even Jadeja removed all posts from his social media that were related to CSK. Meanwhile, CSK released a video last month in which all the players of the team were seen wishing captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on his birthday. All the players except Jadeja were in this video.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni took over after Jadeja stepped down from the captaincy in the middle of Season-15. However, despite this, the team’s performance did not improve and they were out of the title race. Dhoni made it clear after the last match that he will play for CSK in IPL 2023. In such a situation, there is a possibility that Dhoni will captain the team. In such a situation, there is little hope that Jadeja will return to the team.
In such a situation, it is a clear indication that Jadeja is ready to be out of the team. In this way he can either be traded with another team or he will try to resolve the differences by talking to the management of CSK.
Ravindra Jadeja joined Chennai Super Kings in 2012. Although it took him a long time to build his reputation in the team, Dhoni knew Jadeja’s talent. Along with IPL, Dhoni also gave Jadeja a chance in Test matches under his captaincy. He took full advantage of this opportunity and became a key player for India in all three formats with his strong play.
Jadeja also has many emotional aspects associated with CSK. However, he now sees himself as more of a leader. The number of teams in the league has increased from 8 to 10. In such a situation, many teams are going to need an experienced captain in the coming time and Jadeja has now apparently started preparing himself for it.
Jadeja has played 210 matches in IPL. He has scored 2502 runs while batting in this league with a strike rate of 127.65. He has taken a total of 132 wickets in bowling so far.
