While CSK fans tried persuading the star into clearing thins out with the management.


Timeline: CSK-Jadeja rift

  • CSK retained Jadeja for INR 16 crores at the IPL Mega Auction 2022. this was their highest retention, even higher than MSD.
  • On March 24, Dhoni steps down, and Jadeja was appointed new captain.
  • April 30th- Mid-season Dhoni takes over as Jadeja resigns.
  • May 11- Jadeja was ruled out of the remainder of the IPL due to a rib injury.
  • July 9- Jadeja deleted all Instagram posts related to CSK.
  • August 3- deleted Tweet related to playing for CSK longer.

Our take

Although there are no official statements from either party, Ravindra Jadeja leaving CSK seems to have a high possibility. The fashion that things have been going in since March, everything is definitely not well. Both CSK and MI, the most successful teams in IPL history finished poorly at the points table. In case, Ravindra Jadeja is actually leaving CSK, Mumbai would try their best to bring him along as they could not retain its star all-rounder, Hardik Pandya. MS Dhoni is often blamed for spoiling people’s careers including the likes of Irfan Pathan and Gautam Gambhir. Suresh Raina was an important CSK cricketer who went unsold in IPL 2022. With a player that big, CSK could’ve gotten him at the base price at least. Therefore, fans suspected a rift was the reason. This situation is being compared to what’s happening with Jadeja.

MI was struggling with team selections in IPL 2022. However, if Mumbai Indians manage to get Jadeja, who contributes highly to the field. This could prove to be great for the struggling MI.
