Chennai Super Kings cricketer Ravindra Jadeja has been trending on social media since Friday. The all-rounder deleted all his Chennai Super Kings-related Instagram posts, which has sparked rumors of a rift between him and the franchise. Ravindra Jadeja did not have a great time with the franchise in the Indian Premier League 2022 season. However, an official from the Chennai Super Kings has refuted the rift rumors.
Ravindra Jadeja was appointed as the captain of the Chennai Super Kings before the start of the Indian Premier League 2022 season. However, following their disastrous start to the season, he stepped down from the post. Wicket-keeper batter MS Dhoni took up the leadership duties once again. Later in the tournament, the left-handed batter got ruled out due to an injury.
Ravindra Jadeja’s recent act of deleting Instagram posts has led to rumors in the cricketing world. A CSK official reacted to the rumors, stating that all is well between the two parties.
“See, this is a personal call by him. We are not aware of such kinds of incidents from our side. All OK. Nothing is wrong,” the official said as reported by ANI.
CSK official (in ANI) said "All things are okay between the CSK team and Jadeja".
