Pune. IPL 2022 has not been good for Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja so far. He was made the captain of the team two days before the start of the 15th season. But Jadeja flopped badly under the captaincy. Under his leadership, CSK played 8 matches in which 2 were won and 6 were lost. After this he handed back the captaincy to MS Dhoni. If the captaincy is left out, then this CSK all-rounder has disappointed a lot in batting and bowling too. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming says that he is not worried about Jadeja’s form. On May 4, in the match played against RCB, CSK had to face defeat by 13 runs.
After the defeat in the match against RCB, CSK head coach Stephen Fleming said during the virtual press conference, ‘I am not too worried about Jadeja’s form. A T20 match can be bad for any player. Fleming also talked about the difficulties of batting at No.5 and No.6. Where the batter gets very less time. He further said, ‘I am not worried. When you are batting at No. 5 or 6, you don’t get much time to pick up the pace. We will see further what could be a good sequence. But I am not worried about Jadeja’s form.
Jadeja going through a bad phase
Ravindra Jadeja’s performance in IPL 2022 has been very average. He has played 10 matches in the 15th season of the Indian Premier League in which he has scored only 116 runs. In the match played against RCB on Wednesday, he came to bat at number six and got out after scoring just 3 runs in 5 balls. This poor performance of Jadeja has also affected the team. This is the reason why CSK’s team is standing on the verge of being out of the tournament.
CSK in ninth place
Defending champion Chennai Super Kings’ performance in IPL 2022 has been extremely disappointing. CSK has played 10 matches in the 15th season in which 3 have won and 7 have been lost. If we look at the points table, then the team of CSK is at number 9. After the defeat against RCB, the CSK team is almost out of the tournament. However, he still has four more matches to play. Despite winning these remaining matches, CSK will have to depend on other teams to reach the playoffs.
