IPL 2022: Has captaincy overburdened Ravindra Jadeja the batsman?

New skipper Ravindra Jadeja is seemingly overburdened by the roles of captaincy and may be that’s
why he has not been able to score big or contribute in the fielding.

Last night Chennai Super Kings lost its sixth match in the on-going tournament of Indian Premiere League. Four-time winning champions had a new skipper this year. After successfully leading the team for last thirteen years, MS Dhoni handed over the responsibility to all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. The franchise and fans were happy with this decision, but now it seems like the captaincy overburdened the cricketer, as he is struggling to score big in IPL 2022.

Chennai Super Kings did not have the best start to the tournament as they lost four consecutive match and then registered their first win against Faf DuPlessis’s Royal Challengers Bangalore and the second one against their arch rivals- Mumbai Indians. And soon after they lost their last match against Punjab Kings by 11 runs and is on the verge of being out of the tournament.

But what should not go unnoticed is that Ravindra Jadeja has not been able to bat the way he was doing before. The allrounder has shocking dropped several catches this season and has failed in timing the ball well. So does it again come down to captaincy pressure or there’s more to it. Yes! its not an easy job to fill in the shoes of the most successful captain of India and CSK. But Ravindra Jadeja has continuously disappointed his fans in both the department, batting and fielding. It is his bowling which did live up to the expectations and became his armor in this tough time.

Jadeja struggling to bat is also not a good sign with the Indian Team perspective. There are two World Cup tournaments coming up. One is the T20I World Cup 2022 and later the ODI World Cup 2023. And the team management and selectors would expect all the players and specially the allrounders to be in form.

Moreover, every cricketer would want to be added to the playing 11 or even the squad. But with such form of top-class players, the Indian Team is not seeming fully ready to even complete for the World Cup. Be it the captain Rohit Sharma or the former captain Virat Kohli and allrounder Ravindra Jadeja, all have been struggling to score big in this tournament of IPL.

Saba Karim blames NCA for frequent injuries of Indian fast bowlers

Former India cricketer Saba Karim has questioned the failure of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) to monitor the fitness of fast bowlers in India. His argument comes at a time when several fast bowlers, including India’s premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah, are recovering from injuries.

For those who don’t know, Bumrah has been out of the team for a long time due to a back injury. He missed two major tournaments due to injury. These include the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup 2022 and naming several bilateral series amid these big tournaments doesn’t even make it to the cut.

Apart from them, the famous bowlers Prasidh Krishna and Yash Dayal have also joined the list of fast bowlers struggling with injury. Deepak Chahar and Harshal Patel have also made comebacks recently after being sidelined due to injury for a long time. Shardul Thakur was also absent from India’s playing XI against New Zealand on Sunday, which was called off due to rain. Before the match, Shardul was seen warming up but was under the close supervision of a support staff.

Sharing his views on Team India’s fast bowling to a sports website, Saba Karim said that as far as he knows, it is the work of the National Cricket Academy, which sits with the team management and selectors and comes up with a pool of 10-12 fast bowlers. They also shortlist the needs of NCA to guide fast bowlers and to keep an eye on his fitness. He further revealed that its NCA that focuses on the workload management of the bowlers, so that the players are available whenever the team needs them.

But is near past that did not seems to happen. Saba said that it is difficult to say, but India definitely has young fast bowlers, who can bowl well. While Karim admitted that recent injuries have been a cause of concern, he also pointed out that there is no dearth of fast bowling talent in the country and went on to name a few. He said you can count them on your fingre tips as there are just four-five names.

Elaborating further Saba named them and said Kuldeep Sen, selected for Bangladesh tour can bowl at a speed of 140 kilometers per hour. There are also Avesh Khan and Shivam Mavi, who play for UP and has seen him clicking on 140 in domestic cricket. Karthik Tyagi had impressed as a net bowler during the tour of Australia. Khaleel Ahmed has also bowled very well in the IPL. But these questions and doubts raised by Saba Karim have raised concerned and has brought to light some facts that have been doing rounds in everyone’s minds as well.
