Brad Hogg explains why Ravindra Jadeja struggled as Chennai Super Kings captain.
Ravindra Jadeja’s brief stint as captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) was not pleasant. Before relinquishing the top job; he led the four-time winners to only two wins out of eight matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. MS Dhoni, who has led CSK to four titles, has taken over once more; and also led the club to victory over SunRisers Hyderabad. Former Australian cricket team spinner Brad Hogg looked into why Jadeja failed as captain.
“At the start of the season, CSK picked to hand over the reins to Jadeja. Jadeja was the perfect candidate. There’s no superior man for the assignment than the man on CSK’s group list. He was given two months to get ready for this venture; amid which time he went absent and gotten the hardware he accepted would help; him in performing the job to the most excellent of his abilities.

“CSK and Jadeja thought the transfer was going well, with Jadeja receiving coaching and assistance from MS Dhoni behind the stumps. When it came time for Dhoni to let go of the leash and let him to his own ways, the pressure on his shoulders began to rise. Making decisions began to go awry.
He couldn’t assist his bowlers in making the proper judgments or obtaining the best field in those crucial occasions. In such high-pressure situations, I couldn’t also establish the correct field,” Hogg remarked on his YouTube page.
“When it came to his personal performance, he couldn’t focus on his core function as a bowler since he was preoccupied with everyone else. He’s at his best when he’s at ease. He is the source of energy and team spirit. As a result, MS Dhoni had to step in and fill the void.”
