MS Dhoni-led CSK were the most successful team till 2011 IPL with two titles in their kitty. Chennai Super Kings won two consecutive IPL titles in 2010 and 2011.
Although they made it to three IPL finals post 2011, they ended up as second best. Ravindra Jadeja joined CSK in 2012 and was part of three losing finalist CSK teams. However, Jadeja was part of the winning XI in Rajasthan Royals’ campaign in 2008.
CSK lost the 2012 IPL final to KKR, 2013 final to Mumbai Indians, and again to MI in 2015 knockout. Jadeja had scores of DNB, 0, 11* and no wickets to show in the three IPL finals.
Was Jadeja the unlucky charm for CSK post 2011?
