IPL 2022 CSK fans will not be happy with Aakash Chopra statement Ravindra Jadeja may not play next year either

Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was on Wednesday ruled out of the remainder of IPL 2022 due to a rib injury. Jadeja, who stepped down from the captaincy of Chennai Super Kings in the middle of the ongoing season, suffered an injury while taking a deep catch in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Jadeja continued to play in that match. However, in the last match played against Delhi Capitals, he was forced to sit on the bench.

Although Ravindra Jadeja himself has not given any statement regarding his injury on his social media accounts. Since then there has been a lot of speculation about a possible ‘rift’ between the franchise and the all-rounder. Former India opener Aakash Chopra has also given his opinion on the matter.

Aakash Chopra, while previewing the match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, said that he feels that Jadeja may not be there for CSK next year. Chopra said in a video on his YouTube channel, “Jaddu (Jadeja) will not be there for this match. But I have a feeling he probably won’t be there next year either. What happens in the Chennai camp is that you don’t know what happened when a player gets injured or gets dropped. The same happened with Suresh Raina in 2021. After a few games, he suddenly dropped her.”

Chennai CEO Kashi Viswanathan confirmed that both the franchise and Jadeja believed that the recovery process outside the IPL was justified. “He has a rib injury and as per medical advice, he needs rest at this point of time. That’s why it has been decided to keep him out of the IPL,” he said.

This was only the second occasion for Jadeja, who has been playing for Chennai since the 2012 IPL season, that he had to be ruled out of a match in Chennai. Earlier, he was out of the match played against Mumbai Indians in 2019. Mahendra Singh Dhoni was also not a part of Chennai in that match. Jadeja is currently going through a challenging phase of his career. Just two days before the start of the season, Jadeja was given the command of the team. Although Jadeja said that he has a challenge to fill in a huge gap, but Dhoni is still with him which gives him confidence.
