The veteran Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja, who missed their last game against Delhi Capitals (DC) owing to an injury, could very well be ruled out of the remainder of IPL 2022. CSK have three more matches to go in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 022 and they need to win all three to have a shot at the playoff spot. However, for them to qualify, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) will need to lose their remaining games.

Ravindra Jadeja did not feature in CSK’s win against DC after the allrounder seemed to have injured his arm while fielding during the team’s game against Royal Challenges Bangalore. Shivam Dube had replaced the spin-bowling allrounder against DC. CSK will be up against already eliminated Mumbai Indians (MI) on Thursday followed by games against Gujarat Titans (GT) and Rajasthan Royals (RR).

One of the recent reports in the Times of India stated, “The CSK camp assessed his injury for the last couple of days but it hasn’t exactly got better”. The report further adds that CSK may not risk Jadeja further in the tournament knowing that they do have a very bleak chance of qualifying for the playoffs from here on.

Apart from the injury, the batting and bowling form of Ravindra Jadeja has been a worrying factor for CSK as he has only managed to score just 116 runs and scalped five wickets in the 10 matches he has played so far. This reported break could also come as a boon for the terribly out of form Jadeja ahead of India’s home series against South Africa series and the subsequent England tour.

Here is the video of Ravindra Jadeja getting injured during the game against RCB:

The consistent poor performances of Ravindra Jadeja have already put question marks over his place in India’s 2022 T20 World Cup Squad, to be held later this year. With Gujarat Titans already qualified for the playoffs and Mumbai Indians eliminated, eight teams are now vying for the remaining three playoff spots.

Lucknow Super Giants with 16 points are firm favorites to book a play as they would need just one more win from their remaining two games to do that. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals – both with 14 points – and 4 points clear of their nearest competitors DC, SRH, KKR, and PBKS – all of whom have 10 points each.
