Senior India and Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was on Wednesday ruled out of the remainder of the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to a rib injury, days after quitting the leadership role.

"Ravindra Jadeja won't be playing CSK's next two games as he has suffered a rib cage injury. He has already gone home," CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan told PTI.

Jadeja apparently didn't play the match against Delhi Capitals due to an upper body injury, sustained during an earlier match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

Jadeja, who captained CSK in the first eight games, had a forgettable season as he could only manage 116 runs at an average of 20 in 10 matches and five wickets at an economy rate of 7.51.

While the official reason being given for Jadeja's unavailability is injury, sources tracking developments in the CSK camp claimed that the all-rounder has been dropped.

"It seems there is more to it. Jadeja has also unfollowed CSK on Instagram," an IPL source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

The CSK CEO, when asked about Jadeja's decision to unfollow the franchise on social media, didn't want to read too much into it.

"I have no clue about all this stuff like Instagram and Twitter and so I won't be able to tell you much about these things," the CEO said.

While Jadeja led CSK in eight games, losing six and winning two, the 'Yellow Brigade' won three out of four games when Mahendra Singh Dhoni returned as leader.
