Michael Vaughan fears the worst when it comes to Ravindra Jadeja’s future with CSK


There is one thing that binds, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja. Not only are they the best players for India and in world cricket. The trio are also having one of the worst ever seasons of TATA IPL 2022. Ravindra Jadeja who was on the top of the world after being named the top all rounder of the world, has had a season which can be termed personally dismal at best. Jadeja who was named the captain of the side before the start of TATA IPL 2022, saw a poor run of results cost him the top job.

CSK and Jadeja’s strained relationship –

The CSK fans were given a huge jolt when Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the tournament due to an injury. It was later revealed that Jadeja had suffered an injured ribs during the game against RCB.
