All speculation about an alleged rift between all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Chennai Super Kings was put to rest on Tuesday after the franchise announced his name as one of their retained players for IPL 2023. Jadeja was appointed captain of Chennai in the 2022 season but due to his poor performance form and the team’s dismal showing, the captaincy was returned to Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Later, Jadeja was also ruled out of the tournament midway through the season due to injury, before CSK was eliminated from the playoff race.
There were reports that things were not going well between the Indian all-rounder and the four-time IPL champion. However, Chennai kept Jadeja in the squad for IPL 2023.
Following the announcement, Jadeja posted a photo with MS Dhoni on Twitter and wrote a hilarious caption that went viral on social media.
“Everything is fine. #RESTART,” the former Chennai skipper tweeted.
