Ravindra Jadeja has become an indispensable asset for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), but his IPL story began long before. This season marks his 16th appearance in the league, and he recently etched his name in history by becoming the first player to achieve the remarkable feat of surpassing 100 runs, 100 wickets, and 100 catches.

Prior to his CSK dominance, Jadeja donned the jerseys of the Rajasthan Royals (2008-2009), Kochi Tuskers Kerala (2011), and Gujarat Lions (2016-2017). Notably, his CSK journey spans ten seasons, interrupted only by a one-year ban in 2010. His remarkable contributions have reportedly garnered him a cumulative IPL earning of a staggering ₹1,250,100,000.
