In what was a shocking development, Ravindra Jadeja on Saturday (30th April) resigned as the skipper of Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The all-rounder handed the leadership reins back to MS Dhoni.
Ahead of the IPL 2022, Dhoni passed on the captaincy baton to Jadeja but his stint as the captain of the side didn’t turn out to be fruitful. Under him, CSK lost six matches and has won only 2 matches so far from the 8 they have played this season.
Jadeja has decided to focus more on his game. It is fair to say that the pressure of captaincy didn’t do any good to him as he looked off colour with both bat and ball and even has been sloppy on the field. He has made just 115 runs and taken 5 wickets in IPL 15 so far.
The franchise released the official statement about Jadeja’s decision to relinquish the captaincy. It also stated that Dhoni had accepted to lead the CSK to allow the all-rounder to focus on his game.
Jadeja’s decision to quit captaincy triggered a meme fest on Twitter as fans were delighted that they’ll get to see Dhoni once again leading the side
Here are some of the reactions:
