Troubles have refused to leave Chennai Super Kings’ side this season. As if they were not already missing the services of Deepak Chahar and Adam Milne, another star player, has been ruled out of the mega-event. In the latest developments, CSK have been dealt with a major body blow as Ravindra Jadeja is set to miss the rest of the IPL season with an injury.

Jadeja suffered an upper-body injury while fielding against Royal Challengers Bangalore and was subsequently ruled out of the game against Delhi Capitals. With only four games left in the Super Kings’ season, the team management is not expected to risk the Saurashtra all-rounder in the upcoming matches.

Ravindra Jadeja might miss the rest of the IPL season

The Chennai Super Kings’ medical team assessed Ravi Jadeja’s injury in the last couple of days, and there haven’t been any improvements. Now with the mega-event reaching its conclusion, the team management is unlikely to risk his fitness, as reported by the Times of India.

On Thursday, Chennai Super Kings are set to face Mumbai Indians in the bottom-of-the-table clash. Meanwhile, the Yellow Army is already on the verge of the elimination as they sit 9th in the points table with four wins and seven losses after eleven matches.

The defending champions must win all of their remaining fixtures and then rely on the other results as well to have a chance to qualify for the playoffs. In the absence of a key player like Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni’s task to take the team ahead has got more difficult.

However, if CSK gonna miss him, it still remains to be seen. Jadeja hasn’t had the best of the time in the IPL 2022 as the left-handed southpaw has scored only 116 runs and clinched 5 wickets in 10 matches. Moreover, Ravindra Jadeja has been a below-par performer in the field as well and has dropped easy chances.
