After a strong performance against Sri Lanka at home in March, Ravindra Jadeja had an ordinary IPL 2022 where he was making his debut as the skipper for IPL giant, Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
MS Dhoni had stepped down as the yellow team’s leader and handed over the duties to Ravindra Jadeja. However, Jadeja could not cope with the captaincy’s pressure and ultimately gave the leadership role back to MS Dhoni in the middle of the tournament. Later, Jaddu was ruled out of the season due to an injury.
Now, Ravindra Jadeja has earned a call-up for the fifth test against England which will be played in Manchester. The Indian all-rounder took to his official social media account on Saturday to put up a cryptic post, where he stated that he is “looking to start in a different jersey”.
Ravindra Jadeja posts a cryptic tweet
Ravindra Jadeja, who will be seen in action against England, took to his official Twitter handle on June 18 to put up a cryptic Tweet. With him stating that he is ‘looking to start fresh in the different jersey,’ it is possible that he is making a reference to taking on the Team India jersey after a torrid campaign with the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2022 season.

While Ravindra Jadeja had an extremely difficult IPL 2022 campaign as the new captain of the side, his performances with both the bat and ball were not better either. The 33-year-old featured in 10 matches in which he scored just 116 runs with the bat at a disappointing average of 19.33 and strike rate of 118.37, with the best score of 26.
His stats were not good with the ball either, as he picked up just five wickets and conceded 248 runs at an economy of 7.52. Jadeja would now hope to put the disappointment of the IPL 2022 season behind him and focus on the final Test match against England, which is scheduled to take place from July 1-5.
