CSK unfollow Ravindra Jadeja on Insta, rumours of split rife

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who has been an integral part of Chennai Super Kings for almost 10 years, was unfollowed by the franchise on their Instagram handle.

Jadeja has also been ruled out of the ongoing edition of the IPL due to a bruised rib, which he suffered during the clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 4.

“Ravindra Jadeja reported a bruised rib and was unavailable for Chennai Super Kings’ game against Delhi Capitals on Sunday. He was under observation and based on medical advice he has been ruled out for the rest of the IPL season,” said an official statement from CSK.

The all-rounder’s sudden departure and being unfollowed sparked rumours of a rift with the franchise.

While the official reason being given for Jadeja’s unavailability is injury, media reports tracking developments in the CSK camp claimed that the all-rounder has been dropped.

“It seems there is more to it. Jadeja has also unfollowed CSK on instagram,” an IPL source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

The CSK CEO when asked about Jadeja’s decision to unfollow the franchise on social media, didn’t want to read too much into it.

“I have no clue about all this stuff like instagram and twitter and so I won’t be able to tell you much about these things,” the CEO said.

While Jadeja led CSK in eight games losing six and winning two, the ‘Yellow brigade’ has won three out of four games since Dhoni is back as the leader.

Dhoni had handed over captaincy to Jadeja. After taking the leadership mantle back from Jadeja, Dhoni in a roundabout manner claimed that the all-rounder was told during the last season that he would be handed captaincy for 2022 edition.
