Chennai Super Kings have retained India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and released West Indies great Dwayne Bravo, now a 39-year-old T20 player, despite bitter relations with the left-arm spinner over the captaincy issue with MS Dhoni. . Appears to be struggling towards the end of a tumultuous career.
Chennai Super Kings have released West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo along with New Zealand’s Adam Milne, England’s Chris Jordan and Indians N Jagadeesan, C Hari Nishanth, K Bhagat Verma, KM Asif and Rohin Uthappa. september.
Bravo has been with CSK since 2011 and has won the Purple Cap twice (2013 and 2015). He was bought by CSK in the 2022 IPL auction for Rs 4.40 crore.
CSK pulled a surprise by retaining Ravindra Jadeja, who according to reports, showed inclination to leave the franchise after being named captain for the 2022 edition but quit in the midst of a disastrous campaign.
He was reportedly unhappy with the treatment meted out to him by the CSK management. But it seems they have ironed out their differences and Jadeja will continue to “whistle podu”.

However, this looks like a quick fix, a short-term solution by the CSK management as Dhoni will not continue in 2024 and will need a new captain. Will Jadeja get command again after the failure of 2022, only time will tell!
