What’s happening with the Chennai Super Kings? it looks like just a single underwhelming season has created tensions within the camp and there is no clarity on what will happen next. On Saturday, another twisting story came out of the franchise’s camp as Ambati Rayudu announced his retirement from the IPL post the ongoing season. However, the batter soon deleted the tweet within the minutes of the posting. Later, CSK’s CEO Kasi Viswanathan came out to clarify that Ambati Rayudu is not retiring.
The whole chain of events clearly points out that there is something fishy happening within the Yellow Army. The Ravindra Jadeja fiasco is still fresh and we have another controversial story in our hands.
For those who don’t know, Ravindra Jadeja was appointed the skipper of the CSK at the start of the IPL 2022. Following a string of losses, the left-handed southpaw handed over the captaincy back to MS Dhoni. Later, Ravindra Jadeja was dropped from the team citing the injury concerns and the all-rounder left the team’s bio-bubble after getting ruled out of the tournament.
Amid all the drama, CSK’s official Instagram account unfollowed ‘Jaddu’ and the rumours of a rift between Jadeja and CSK took over the market. The situation created unrest among the fans and the CEO Kasi Viswanathan came forward to address the situation. He clarified that Ravindra Jadeja is a vital cog of the CSK’s system and he is not going away.
Now, another drama has unfolded and once again the CEO has to come forward to control the damage. Ambati Raydu is a crucial member of the CSK’s batting unit and he was substantial for Chennai’s 2018 title triumph.
Meanwhile, Twitterati was having none of this drama from Chennai Super Kings as the fans bashed Ambati Rayudu and the franchise with no mercy.
