There are a lot of speculations if the current one is his last IPL, I feel he has got one more IPL left in him. Even though he is not a 3-year investment, CSK will not think about that and will retain him as their first retention,” Aakash Chopra said.

Aakash Chopra feels Ravindra Jadeja will be CSK’s second retention. Also, unless the all-rounder himself wants to move out.
“The second retention, unless Jaddu says he wants to go, he would know by then if a Gujarat team is there and he wants to go there and become the captain. If that happens then it is different, else Jaddu will be the second retention,” Chopra said.
Lastly, ahead of the Indian Premier League 2022 is likely to be based in Ahmedabad. Jadeja could be one of the likely candidates to captain that franchise. Moreover, considering that it’ll be his home state. Aakash Chopra includes Suresh Raina and Deepak Chahar. As the two players, Chennai Super Kings could exercise their RTM card.
“In my opinion, this team will use two ‘Right to Match’ cards. One will be on Deepak Chahar, you will definitely want to retain him, and you can use the RTM card on Suresh Raina,” Aakash Chopra said.
