IPL 2022: Ravindra Jadeja, who is captaining one of the most successful IPL teams and the current champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for the first time, has had a disappointing journey as a captain. After all, he has handed the responsibility of captaincy back to Dhoni in the middle of the season. He has also taken this decision at a time when the team has to face the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in their 9th match on the next day. Before the start of this 15th season of IPL 2022, Dhoni handed over the captaincy of ‘Yellow Army’ to Ravindra Jadeja. But, now he has to fulfill this responsibility again.
Ravindra Jadeja buried under the burden of captaincy
Chennai’s plan to make Ravindra Jadeja the captain was spreading completely. CSK’s team has won only 2 out of 8 matches so far this season. At the same time, under the pressure of captaincy, Jadeja’s game also got angry with him. According to the news, he had to leave the captaincy only after a disappointing performance as a player.
This dashing all-rounder has been able to score only 112 runs with the bat so far in this season and only 5 wickets have been recorded in the bowling. According to the official statement given by CSK. Jadeja has decided to step down from the captaincy to focus more on his game. However, according to a report in Cricbuzz, things are not as smooth as it seems to the people in the CSK management. Jadeja had to decide to quit the captaincy under compulsion after his disappointing performance.
Forced to give up captaincy
A person associated with CSK said, “The team management was certainly not happy with this performance of Jadeja, one of the best all-rounders in the world and he did not keep silent on this matter. Obviously, all this is happening under the burden of captaincy. Even now catches are being dropped from him. It’s all a result of pressure.” The next clash of CSK is to be held today i.e. on Sunday 1st May from Hyderabad, which is performing well this season. SRH has won 5 in 8 matches played this season.
