Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja could reportedly be ruled out of the remainder of the tournament due to injury. The 33-year-old apparently suffered an injury during the team’s loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
The all-rounder inflicted an injury to his torso while attempting to catch the ball. He was then replaced in the playing XI by Shivam Dube for their ensuing clash against the Delhi Capitals.
With the recovery not being on track at the moment, it seems that the CSK management will not risk putting Jadeja back on the field. CSK are on the brink of elimination and needs to win all of their remaining three matches to be in contention for the final playoff spot.
Jadeja was initially named as the captain of the franchise, mere days before the commencement of the IPL 2022. However, after enduring their worst start, the all-rounder handed the captaincy back to MS Dhoni.
Captaincy noticeably took a toll on the player as he struggled to contribute across all three departments. After scoring only 116 runs in 10 matches and five wickets to his name, Jadeja has endured a woeful campaign that could see a premature end.
Jadeja had suffered a significant injury in late 2021 which caused him to miss the tour of South Africa. He returned back into the fray in the home series against Sri Lanka.
The extent of his injury is yet to be known and as a result, his involvement in the upcoming T20 series against South Africa is uncertain as well.
CSK will next take on arch-rivals Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on May 12 (Thursday).
