One of the few players who has featured in the Indian Premier League (IPL) right from its inception, Ravindra Jadeja became an IPL champion in the inaugural season itself, where he featured for the Rajasthan Royals.
His impactful knows lower down the order and his brilliant fielding impressed the Late Shane Warne, who went to give him the nickname "Rockstar Jadeja"
However, Jadeja's association with the Royals' ended with the 2009 season. He was handed a suspension from the 2010 edition by the IPL Governing Council for reportedly entertaining offers from other franchises.
Jadeja was back on the auction table in 2011, where newbies Kochi Tuskers claimed his services for INR 4.3 Crores.
However, the franchise disbanded in 2012, and the spin-bowling all-rounder found a new home in the form of the Chennai Super Kings.
With the Super Kings getting suspended for two seasons in 2015, Jadeja played for his state franchise- Gujarat Lions- in 2016 and 2017.
He returned to CSK in 2018, and thus started a phase where the often misfiring T20 batsman would start justifying his talent with consistent performances.
Jadeja's T20 batting hit its peak during the 2020 and 2021 season as he smoked 232 and 227 runs @ 46.4/171.85 & 75.66/145.51 respectively.
The 2021 season, in particular, is when Jadeja really came into his own as a pace basher. In one of the league games, Jadeja slaughtered RCB's Harshal Patel for 37 runs in 1 over- the joint-most in the history of the IPL.
In 2022, Jadeja was bestowed with the honour of replacing MS Dhoni as CSK skipper, but what was supposed to be a dream come true, soon turned into a nightmare.
Not only did his personal form disappear, Jadeja also failed to inspire his team as a leader as CSK kept losing one game after another. Ultimately, he relinquished his leadership duties midway through the season before getting ruled out due to an injury.
There were reports in the media that all was not well between Jadeja and the CSK top-brass but the rumours were quashed by the all-rounder in November 2022 when he tweeted that "Everything is Fine" with a picture of him bowing his head in front of Dhoni.
