Rift Between CSK And Jadeja?
Ravindra Jadeja was named the captain of Chennai Super Kings ahead of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League however he stepped down after they managed 2 wins from 8 games. He was later replaced by MS Dhoni as the captain of the side. Jadeja only played 2 games under Dhoni’s captaincy before he was ruled out of the season because of a bruised rib.
Ever since then there have been reports of a rift between Ravindra Jadeja and Chennai Super Kings. Recently, Jadeja deleted all posts related to Chennai Super Kings from his Instagram page and it isn’t known whether he will continue to be a part of the franchise.
However, this Tweet by Chennai Super Kings rules out all the rumors of rift between the two, at least for now.
