CSK are already out of the playoffs, there are still a few matches left, but former captain Ravindra Jadeja has already gone home with a “crushed rib”, but not before he added oil to speculation that after what he was told, he argued with the leadership to give up. with the captain’s function.

On Saturday morning, the 36-year-old former Indian white ball player announced his decision on Twitter.

“I’m happy to announce that this will be my last ipl. I’ve had a great time playing this and being part of 2 great teams for 13 years. I’d like to sincerely thank the Mumbai Indians and CSK for a wonderful trip,” Rayudu tweeted.

But within an hour, the post was deleted because CSK owners and team management were completely taken aback by Rayud’s decision, which also raised questions about the communications channel in one of the most successful teams in IPL history.
