Chennai Super Kings is the second most successful franchise of the IPL as it has won the title four times under the leadership of MS Dhoni but its last season (IPL 2022) was quite disappointing as it not only performed badly on the field but many controversies were created related to its captaincy saga.
Just before the tournament, Ravindra Jadeja was appointed as the new skipper of CSK but after Jadeja’s poor outing with the bat and ball and successive defeats of the team, the Indian all-rounder gave up the captaincy and MS Dhoni once again took the charge of the team. Later on, Ravindra Jadeja suffered an injury and he was ruled out of the IPL2022 but it started the speculation that things were not good between the Chennai franchise and Ravindra Jadeja.
Some other incidents also happened after the IPL 2022 which further fuelled these speculations, for example, Ravindra Jadeja deleted all the posts related to CSK of the past two seasons from his Instagram account. That’s not all as in one of the press conferences, he dodged the question related to CSK by saying that when a player plays for India, he doesn’t think anything else and now he has deleted a comment which he made on the post made by CSK regarding his 10 yrs connection with the franchise.

On 4th Feb 2022, CSK posted two photos of Ravindra Jadeja in yellow, the first one was from 2012 and the other was from 2022 and it read, “10 years of Super Jaddu”.
In response, Jadeja made a comment, “10 more to go” but now he has deleted the comment which has further strengthened the rumours that things are not going good between the star cricketer and CSK and there is a possibility that they both may part their ways before the IPL 2023.
