Jadeja picked up the injury while attempting a catch after running in from the deep against Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 4.
“He has an injury on his rib which he sustained during our match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (on May 04). We have only two games left and given his heavy international commitments, we thought he should not risk further injury,” said Kasi Viswanathan, the CEO of the franchise.
According to the CSK official, Jadeja who was removed as the captain of the team midway after a streak of defeats, was feeling pain on his rib.
“He was feeling pain while bowling and batting. So we thought that it would be wise to let him rest. We have informed the BCCI as well,” Viswanathan said.
Super Kings are currently ninth on the IPL 2022 points table with eight points from 11 games. To qualify for the playoffs, they need to win all their remaining games and hope other results go their way.
His poor performance in IPL 2022 has already put question marks over his place in India’s 2022 T20 World Cup Squad, to be held later this year.
