Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will miss the rest of the Indian Premier League due to a bruised rib.

It has been a miserable tournament for Jadeja, who was named CSK captain but stepped down after just over a month in the role.

MS Dhoni took over the captaincy duties once again when the India international relinquished the job at the end of last month.

And Chennai on Wednesday revealed that Jadeja will play no further part in the IPL.

Jadeja missed the 91-run hammering of Delhi Capitals on Sunday and has been ruled out of his side's three remaining games on medical advice.

Dhoni was critical of Jadeja's captaincy after he stepped down.

"I think Jadeja knew last season that he would be captaining this year," he told Star Sports.

"For the first two games, I simply oversaw his work and let him be later. After that, I insisted that he take his own decisions and bear responsibility for them.

"Once you become captain, it means a lot of demands come in. But it affected his mind as the tasks grew. I think captaincy burdened his prep and performances.

"So it was a gradual transition. Spoon-feeding doesn't really help the captain; on the field you have to take those crucial decisions and you have to take responsibility for those decisions.

"Once you become the captain, we have to take care of many things and that also includes your own game."

Holders CSK are ninth in the table with only four wins from 11 matches.
