Indian Premier League 2023 may start in March. Auctions can be done for IPL 2023 in December, but its venue has not been decided yet. There was a mega auction before IPL 2022, so it will be a mini auction. Many players are likely to get buyers once again, with some players becoming part of other franchises through the trade window.
According to a report in Cricbuzz, some teams have requested Jadeja’s trade. The report has confirmed that Delhi Capitals is one of the teams making the request. But there are no plans for Chennai Super Kings to release their former captain as of now. According to the report, CSK has turned down the offer.
Ravindra Jadeja and the franchise saw a lot of tussle after he was removed as captain during IPL 2022. Jadeja was selected as the captain of Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2022. CSK won only 2 out of 8 matches under Jadeja, due to which the franchise decided to change the captain in the middle of the season and once again handed over the reins to MS Dhoni.
Jadeja played only 2 matches under Dhoni and was ruled out due to injury while fielding. He has remained silent on his future with CSK since then and the franchise also did not say much about the player. Although he had deleted many posts related to Chennai Super Kings.
Apart from Jadeja, there are a few other players for whom the franchise got a trade request. A Cricbuzz report stated that Gujarat Titans received requests for spinner R Sai Kishore and all-rounder Rahul Teotia. The Hardik Pandya-led team has declined the offers and both will stay with GT.
