Ravindra Jadeja out of remaining IPL 2022; CSK CEO reacts
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the remainder of the IPL 2022 due to a rib injury. The left-hander picked up the injury while catching the ball after running in from the deep against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on May 4. While he continued playing that game, Jadeja sat out in CSK’s last match against Delhi Capitals (DC).
“Jaddu had an injury during the game against RCB and after that he didn’t play the game against Delhi Capitals. On medical advice, it has been decided that he cannot participate further in this IPL and he is heading back home. He has been released,” CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan said in his statement.
Meanwhile, CSK are currently languishing at the ninth spot in the points table. The four-time champions have so far managed to win just four of their eleven games. The Yellow Army is unlikely to make it to the playoffs this year but is still alive in the competition.
Talking about Jadeja’s performance in the ongoing IPL, he could score just 116 runs in 10 games at a modest strike rate of 118. His highest score with the bat was 26, while he picked up five wickets with the ball.
