Ahead of IPL 2022, the Yellow Army had named Jadeja as its new skipper replacing the veteran MS Dhoni. However, under his leadership, CSK had a horrible time during the starting phase of the tournament. Soon, Jadeja himself stepped down from the captaincy post before suffering an injury and getting ruled out of the entire tournament.
He managed just 116 and five wickets in the 10 matches he played so far. CSK only managed to win 4 games out of the 14 matches they played in the IPL 2022 season.
