IPL: Ravindra Jadeja likely to stay back at Chennai Super Kings | New Zealand in India 2016 News


CHENNAI: Ravindra Jadeja’s fall out with the Chennai Super Kings management was one of the most talked about topics of the last IPL. It has been six months since and after speculations about the all-rounder’s transfer to other franchises, it looks like Jadeja will stay back with CSK after all.
Jadeja was sullen after being unceremoniously stripped of captaincy and consequently left the team’s camp in Mumbai after being diagnosed with a rib injury. He deleted all CSK-related posts on his social media accounts which sparked furious speculation.
With November 15, the trade deadline approaching, there have been transfer approaches from other teams, but it seems MS Dhoni is determined to keep the Saurashtra left-hander at CSK. Even a replacement like Axar Patel of Delhi Capitals might not be to Dhoni’s liking as he believes in the ability of Jadeja.
One understands that the skipper has made it clear to the management that Jadeja cannot be released. He is an extremely important member of the team and Dhoni felt Jadeja’s influence cannot be replicated by another player, especially with CSK playing their home matches in Chennai.
However, it is true that Jadeja did not keep in touch with the CSK management for a very long time. In between, he had an injury that kept him out of India’s World Cup squad and now he is on a comeback trail.
It will be a fresh start for the 32-year-old after a long absence and the fact that he has a decade-long familiarity with the team could tip the balance in CSK’s favour.
Jordan, Milne likely to be released
However, CSK is likely to let go of two overseas pacers Chris Jordan and Adam Milne.
