Jadeja broke his silence on the defeat under the captaincy of CSK, said- ‘IPL was not there..’

Ravindra Jadeja back in good form With a scintillating century against England in the fifth and final Test of the five-match series at Edgbaston on Saturday (July 2). India all-rounder IPL was going through poor form in 2022 and was in the news only for the wrong reasons. Not to be forgotten, Jadeja was made the captain of Chennai Super Kings just two days before the start of the campaign. And this affected his game, due to which he resigned from the captaincy after a few matches, giving back the job to MS Dhoni. But Jadeja continued to struggle throughout the season, before an injury ruled him out of the competition. It took him time to recover as he eventually missed the South Africa T20I at home. Rumors also started pouring in off the field as an alleged feud between Jadeja and the CSK management was speculated, but CSK soon rubbished all the rumours.

Jadeja’s return to cricket in the fifth test And came back with a bang. As India posted 89 for 5 on the first day of the Test match, Jadeja partnered with Rishabh Pant and put on 200-plus runs for the sixth wicket to bail India out of a deep trouble. On the second day, he completed his third Test century, an innings that he will remember and cherish for ages.

After the end of Day 2, Jadeja attended a press conference and was asked a question on the loss of the CSK captaincy, was it playing in his mind when he went to bat? Jadaja said ‘not at all’ before adding that when he is playing for India, all his focus is good for the national team.

“What happened, happened. IPL was not on my mind. Whenever you are playing for India, your entire focus should be on the Indian team. It was the same for me, there is no better satisfaction than doing well for India.” Not there.” He told reporters after the stumps on the second day.

Jadeja also said that it feels good to have a batting position in England, where it is difficult for foreign batsmen to perform due to conditions and swing. He said that he is going to gain confidence from this innings as scoring 100 runs in swing conditions like England is not an easy task.
