3 Teams That Can Target Ravindra Jadeja In IPL 2023 Auction. The 33 years old Ravindra Jadeja is regarded as one of the finest all-rounders in the last decade. He has been prolific in terms of batting, bowling, and acrobatic fielding. It won’t be an understatement if we say that Jadeja is the best fielder currently in world cricket.
Ravindra Jadeja has been associated with Chennai Super Kings since 2012. In fact, he was also chosen to lead the franchise in IPL 2022 when Dhoni left the captaincy. But, Jadeja failed to lead the team in a good way, and under his captaincy, CSK lost 6 out of 8 matches.
He had to relinquish his IPL captaincy mid-way during IPL 2022. According to reports, Ravindra Jadeja and CSK team management have not been in touch after the completion of IPL 2022.
It is almost certain that he will part ways with CSK and make him available in the trading window before IPL 2023. Let us look at 3 teams that can target Ravindra Jadeja in IPL 2023 auction after his conflict with CSK.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, after their poor performance in IPL 2022, will be itching to find the best team combination ahead of the next IPL season. They were unable to live up to the expectation of the fans. Their decision not to retain David Warner and Rashid Khan backfired on the team, and it has created a void in the batting order and the spin department.
They failed to chase down targets due to the absence of a proper finisher. Ravindra Jadeja can be the best option for this position for SRH.
Mumbai Indians had a season to forget in IPL 2022, where the men in blue finished at the bottom position, with just 4 wins from 14 matches. MI looked like a team that was completely off-color. They did not have a proper team combination, and the absence of Hardik Pandya hurt them heavily.
They did not have world-class spinners, and the youngsters such as Kumar Kartikeya and Hrithik Shokeen failed to impress. If Mumbai Indians have to return to winning ways, they will need the services of an experienced all-rounder. In such a situation, Ravindra Jadeja can be the best choice in IPL 2023.

Punjab Kings have always had the luxury of a stable batting order. In IPL 2022, they had players such as Shikhar Dhawan, Johny Bairstow, Mayank Agarawal, Liam Livingston, etc. In the pace bowling department also, Punjab has quality bowlers such as Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, etc. But they don’t have a good spinner on the side.
PBKS tried Liam Livingston and Harpreet Brar but did not yield positive results. Adding an experienced all-rounder like Ravindra Jadeja can change the team’s fortunes, as Jadeja can bowl 4 overs and play the role of a finisher.
