Last week the IPL trade window was in its full swing and franchises were involved in trading players in order to make the core of their team strong and the left-up voids could be filled in the upcoming auction. However, at that time many teams looked proactive on social media and interacted with the fans. But, a fan asked a hilarious question to CSK and ended up getting a filmy reply from them.
Chennai Super Kings hold a massive fan following across India due to their star-studded team line-up. They have some biggest names associated with them like Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja and many more. They are also the only team to qualify for the play-offs in all the seasons of IPL in which they have featured until now. And, also lifted the trophy on three occasions (2010, 2011 & 2018).
Fan enquires CSK about Ravindra Jadeja’s transfer to Mumbai Indians
A fan came out of blue, who took to his Twitter handle in order to ask CSK if they are interested in trading Ravindra Jadeja and wrote, “How about @imjadeja to @mipaltan? All bases would be covered. Isn’t? #JustSaying #koluthipoduvom What you think @ChennaiIPL?”

And, the Chennai based franchise quickly gave a reply to the fan but in a unique fashion, and said, “Mission Impossible”.

During the trade window, a fan had also enquired about Dhoni’s trade to any other team ahead of IPL 2020 auction, as he has been on sabbatical after returning from the 2019 World Cup that was hosted by England.
Ravindra Jadeja was one of the three players, who was retained by the Kings in their comeback season after finishing up their suspension back in 2018. He is earning a hefty amount of 7 Cr per season from the former IPL champions. Currently, the all-rounder from Saurashtra is gearing up for the first-ever Day-Night Test that Team India is going to play against Bangladesh that will begin on 22nd of November at the Eden Gardens.
On 15th of November, all the eight teams revealed the list of the retained and released players that shifts all the focus to the auction that is scheduled to take place in Kolkata on December 19.
