IPL 2022: Former CSK cricketer expressed regret for Ravindra Jadeja, know the reason


New Delhi. Ravindra Jadeja was made the captain of Chennai Super Kings 2 days before the start of IPL 2022. Under his captaincy, CSK played 8 matches in which they lost 6 and won 2. The captaincy pressure was clearly visible on Jadeja. During this, he could not do any wonders with the ball and the bat. After 8 matches, he handed back the captaincy to SS Dhoni. MS Dhoni had given the command of captaincy to Jadeja. Former CSK cricketer Shane Watson has reacted after Jadeja handed over the captaincy to Dhoni in mid-season.

While talking during The Grade Cricketer podcast, Shane Watson expressed sympathy for Ravindra Jadeja. According to him, it is not easy for anyone to follow in Dhoni’s footsteps. Watson said, “When I initially heard that Jadeja was going to take over the captaincy, I was blown away. Because everyone knows the kind of respect MS Dhoni has on the field it was always going to be difficult for Jadeja. He further said that I am sorry for Ravindra Jadeja.

tough job to captain

During this, Shane Watson also told how much pressure there is during captaincy. Recalling the decision to leave the captaincy of Rajasthan Royals in the year 2015, he said that I captained the Royals. But I know how difficult it is when you are under pressure. So congratulations to Jadeja for taking the decision to step down as captain.

Shane Watson, who won the title for Chennai in the year 2018, further said, even though Jadeja was told that he would potentially take over the captaincy. But things change. If Dhoni wants to play, he can do whatever he wants. The entire franchise is built around MS Dhoni. Be it leadership or team dynamics. Dhoni is the person leading the franchise.

second most successful captain

MS Dhoni is the second most successful captain in the Indian Premier League. He has made Chennai Super Kings champion on four under his captaincy. Apart from this, CSK’s team was runner-up 5 times under the captaincy of Dhoni. That is, in the captaincy of Dhoni overall, CSK qualified for the final 9 times. At present, the team of Chennai has not been able to perform much in this season. If we look at the points table, CSK has played 10 matches in which 3 have won and 7 have been lost. With 6 points, the team of Chennai is on the 9th place on the table points. CSK’s chances of reaching the playoffs were dashed after their match loss against RCB on Wednesday.
