CSK Unfollow Ravindra Jadeja On Instagram Following Rift Rumours: Source
Ravindra Jadeja, an all-rounder who has been with Chennai Super Kings for almost a decade, has been unfollowed by the franchise on Instagram. Due to a bruised rib sustained during the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 4, Jadeja has been ruled out of the ongoing edition of the IPL. “Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of Chennai Super Kings’ match against Delhi Capitals on Sunday due to a bruised rib. He was under observation and has been ruled out for the remainder of the IPL season, according to medical advice “CSK issued an official statement.
The all-abrupt rounder’s departure and lack of attention sparked speculation about a rift with the franchise.
This has sparked speculation on social media that Jadeja abruptly ended the season due to team issues.
“CSK management & dhoni played cheap politics with #Jadeja first dhoni made him scapegoat captain to blamed for worst season, then sacked him from captain in only 8 matches, then Dhoni criticised his captaincy, then #CSK unfollowed him & now sacked from IPL BEST PLAYER but insulted,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Something had been brewing for a while, and it’s possible that’s why he gave up the captaincy. And Jadeja wasn’t acting like himself. Then came the news of his injury….it appears to be a mystery, “another user commented.
The all-rounder was CSK’s most expensive player in IPL 2022, with a contract worth Rs 16 crore. He was also named the team’s captain just a few days before the tournament began.
CSK, on the other hand, lost six of their eight games while he was captain. In these matches, Jadeja also lost his form, scoring only 111 runs and taking three wickets.
He then’requested’ MS Dhoni to take over as captain of the team so he could concentrate on his own game.
CSK won two out of three games under Dhoni’s leadership.
Jadeja has had a disappointing season thus far, scoring only 116 points in ten games (an average of 19.33) with a best score of 26*. So far, he has only taken five wickets.
On Thursday, CSK will face Mumbai Indians in their next match.
