He was under the supervision of doctors and on medical advice, he has been ruled out for the rest of the IPL season. ,
Meanwhile, several reports also state that Jadeja has unfollowed the franchise on Instagram as well. Jadeja has been an important member of the franchise for the past 10 years and emerged as the most expensive player of the team for IPL 2022 when the franchise retained him for a whopping sum of Rs 16 crore.
Jadeja was made the captain of Chennai Super Kings before the start of IPL 2022. Jadeja relinquished the captaincy after the team’s dismal performance during the season and Dhoni took over the reins of CSK in the middle of the season. Jadeja also flopped with bat and ball under the pressure of captaincy.
