Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has landed himself in hot water after liking a social media post criticizing his India teammates, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

CSK crashes out of IPL 2024, Jadeja’s like ignites controversy

The incident occurred following CSK’s heart-breaking loss to Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in their final group stage match of IPL 2024. This defeat officially eliminated CSK from the playoffs, leaving fans and players understandably disappointed.

However, Jadeja’s social media activity added fuel to the fire. He reportedly “liked” two posts on social media platform (X) that praised MS Dhoni for his captaincy and his batting while taking a dig at Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. The post suggested that these two players, considered stalwarts of Indian cricket, did not adequately support Dhoni during his playing days in international cricket.

Fans divided, Jadeja backtracks

The social media like has divided fans. Some have expressed support for Jadeja, viewing it as a harmless display of loyalty towards his former captain, Dhoni. Others have criticized Jadeja, finding the like disrespectful towards his fellow Indian cricketers and teammates, Rohit and Virat.

Realizing the controversy he ignited, Jadeja reportedly unliked the post soon after. However, screenshots of the incident have already been widely circulated online, causing a stir amongst fans and cricket enthusiasts.

Impact on team chemistry remains unseen

The potential impact of this incident on the Indian cricket team’s camaraderie remains to be seen. With the T20 World Cup fast approaching, it’s crucial for Indian players to maintain a sense of unity and respect for each other.

Neither Jadeja nor the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has issued an official statement regarding the incident. Whether this will be addressed further or remain just a social media blip remains to be seen.
