“Yes, he (Ravindra Jadeja) is upset and very hurt. The captaincy issue could have been handled better. Everything was too sudden, too abrupt. Any human being would be hurt by the way things happened,” said a source close to Ravindra Jadeja.
InsideSport have attempted to contact the CEO of CSK for a comment on the statement made by the source close to Jadeja, but we have received no response.

IPL 2022: Ravindra Jadeja “Upset and very hurt by the management of CSK”, is this the beginning of the end of the relationship with CSK Jadeja?
End of relationship with CSK Jadeja? When asked if injury was the reason Jadeja pulled out of IPL 2022. The source declined to comment directly.
“I don’t want to say much about it. Yes, he had an injury but how much I don’t know” added the source.
It should be noted that CSK informed the media that Jadeja pulled out due to a bruised rib. CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan himself has publicly stated that “As CSK is already ousted from the IPL Playoff race, the team didn’t want to risk their injury further.”
Now cricket pundits are also raising their finger on CSK’s management and Jadeja’s injury status.
“Jadeja has become unavailable for the whole season. I can’t understand this
“On the pitch, it didn’t seem like a big injury, so you can tell something or the other is going on,” Sanjay Manjrekar was quoted by ESPN Cricinfo.
What must have upset Ravindra Jadeja against CSK?
Reason 1: Jadeja was CSK’s No. 1 retention ahead of the auction. According to MS Dhoni, he was told even last year that he would be the franchise captain this season.
- Which is hard to understand if it was planned and informed in Jadeja last year – why The news of Jadeja’s rise came two days before this year’s IPL.
- Why didn’t the management of Dhoni and CSK announce the decision in advance?
Reason 2: Was Jadeja the REAL BOSS in the field? Jadeja captained for 8 games. It could be clearly seen that most of the important decisions had been made by Dhoni himself while Jadeja continued to brave the depths.
But the discredit for all the defeats had passed on Jadeja’s head.
Reason 3: Sudden decision to take over the Harbor Master’s Office: Suddenly on the eve of game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Jadeja ‘relinquished the role of captain’.
In the media, he was informed that “Jadeja stepped down as captain to focus on his personal batting and bowling.”
But the truth was something else.
InsideSport reported at the time that CSK promoters and management were very unhappy with Jadeja’s show and decided to show him the door.
“He (Ravindra Jadeja) looked lethargic, subdued and unimaginative. He was unsure of himself as usual when leading the team,” InsideSport has been informed by a source from the CSK camp.
It is clear that despite CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan’s claims about Jadeja’s IPL 2022 withdrawal, ‘that there is nothing more than his wound’ – theirs is something more.
It is difficult to say clearly at this stage whether Jadeja will return to CSK next year or not? Will he return to the auction or will he continue to play in yellow?
But what is clear is that ‘he is upset and very hurt’ by the treatment inflicted on him.
Top CSK bosses and MS Dhoni himself are known for their man management skills. They could bring Jadeja back to the squad for IPL 2023.
But for now – Emotional Jadeja remains ‘upset and hurt’.
