Ravindra Jadeja was named the captain of the Chennai Super Kings this season, but he was replaced by MS Dhoni in between after a string of poor performances. Chennai Super Kings managed to win just a couple of their initial eight games of Indian Premier League 2022.
Apart from his captaincy, Jadeja has struggled personally as well this season with his performances. He has just scored just 116 runs this season at 19.33, whereas he has managed to scalp just five wickets with the ball.
Ravindra Jadeja is been in highlight as Chennai Super Kings have also unfollowed on social media handles. Some former cricketers like Aakash Chopra have said that Jadeja won’t play for Chennai next season.
