“Yes he (Ravindra Jadeja) is upset & very hurt. The captaincy issue could have been handled better. Everything was too sudden, too abrupt. Any human being would get hurt by the way things shaped up”, said a source close to Ravindra Jadeja.
InsideSport tried reaching out to CSK CEO for a comment on the statement made by the source close to Jadeja, but we not get any reply.
IPL 2022: Ravindra Jadeja ‘Upset and very hurt with the CSK management’, Is it beginning of end of CSK Jadeja relationship?
CSK Jadeja Relationship Ends? When asked if injury was the reason for Jadeja to pull out of IPL 2022. The source refused to make a direct comment.
“I don’t want to say much on this. Yes he had a injury but how serious I am not aware” added the source.
It is worth noting that CSK informed the media that Jadeja had pulled out due to a bruised rib. CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan himself came on record to state that ‘as CSK is already ousted from IPL Playoff race, team did not want to risk his injury further’.
Now the cricket experts also are raising fingers on CSK management & Jadeja’s injury status.
“Jadeja has become unavailable for the entire season. Can’t understand this
“On the ground, it didn’t seem like a big injury. So you can say that something or the other is happening,” Sanjay Manjrekar was quoted by ESPN Cricinfo.
What must have made Ravindra Jadeja upset with CSK?
Reason 1: Jadeja was CSK’s No. 1 retention ahead of the auctions. According to MS Dhoni, it was told to him last year itself that he would be the captain of the franchise this season.
- What is hard to understand if it was planned and informed to Jadeja last year – why The news of Jadeja’s elevation came two days before this year’s IPL.
- Why Dhoni and CSK management did not announce the decision before-hand?
Reason 2: Was Jadeja the REAL-BOSS on the field? Jadeja captained for 8 games. One could clearly make out most of the important decisions were taken by Dhoni himelf while Jadeja kept fielding in the deep.
But discredit for all the defeats were passed on Jadeja’s head.
Reason 3: Sudden decision to take back the Captaincy: All of a sudden on the eve of match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Jadeja ‘relinquished the role of captain’.
In media it was informed that ‘Jadeja has left captaincy to focus on his personal batting and bowling’.
But the truth was something else.
InsideSport had reported at that point of time that CSK’s promoters and management were very unhappy with Jadeja’s show and decided to show him the door.
“He (Ravindra Jadeja) looked lethargic, subdued & unimaginative. He was not his usual confident self while leading the team”, InsideSport was informed by a source in the CSK Camp.
It’s clear that despite CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan claims on Jadeja’s IPL 2022 pullout, ‘that there’s nothing more to it than his injury’ – their is something more to it.
It is hard to spell out with clarity at this stage that whether Jadeja will return to CSK next year or not? Whether he will go back to auction or will he continue to play in yellow?
But what is clear is that ‘he is upset & very hurt’ by the treatment meted out to him.
CSK’s top bosses and MS Dhoni himself is known for their man-management skills. They may woo Jadeja back in the team for IPL 2023.
But for now – emotional Jadeja stays ‘upset & hurt’.
