IPL 2022: Controversies about ‘Jadeja’s removal from Captaincy’ explained

Chennai Super Kings manager N Srinivasan recently told, “I don’t ask how they won, and I have no business asking them why they lost,” when asked about the team’s string of losses in IPL 2022.

The remark was in line with his strategy of not interfering in cricket decisions and letting skipper MS Dhoni complete control.

With Ravindra Jadeja in control, he appeared to signal that his stance had not altered, but franchise sources claim that the new leadership transition is not a mutual agreement, with the former expressing a desire to focus on his game and the latter eager to step in.

Kasi Viswanathan, franchise’s CEO, stated that the decision was made on Saturday evening.

Kasi told, “The team management has conveyed this to us, and we have accepted.”

It wasn’t as straightforward as that sentence suggests. While some of this may be true, the management did not want to remain silent as the defending four-time winners lost game after game.

There are significant signs that Jadeja was pushed to do something. Discussions of reinstalling Dhoni as captain began somewhere in the last three days.

The main source of concern was Jadeja’s poor performance, not his poor leadership.

“The management cannot remain mute while the world’s best all-rounder fails to deliver. He is obviously weighed down by the responsibilities of captaincy,” according to a source close to CSK.

For the record, Jadeja, who has been a consistent performer for the club in the past, has only 112 runs and five wickets (average 42, 8.19 economy rate) in eight games this season.

The source remarked, “He even started dropping receptions.”

CSK is presently in ninth place, having won two of their eight games.

Theoretically, they are still in contention for a play-off berth, and franchise management believes that with Dhoni back in control, a turnaround will be quite easy.

It’s no secret that Dhoni has complete control over CSK’s operations, and it was only at his request that Srinivasan agreed to the captaincy swap only days before the season began.

Now it appears that Dhoni will be able to turn the team’s fortunes around. “I go with the captain’s decision,” Srinivasan told.

He wouldn’t say if he’ll be with the outgoing or incoming captain.
