He has had a brilliant IPL as he successfully provided his team quality starts throughout the tourney.

On the other hand, there is Chennai Super Kings, they completely dominated all the other teams throughout the season.
Coming back into the IPL following a two-year ban, CSK made the most out of the opportunity. With Rayudu, Watson and Dhoni performing the CSK were unstoppable. They comfortably won the finale against Sunrisers Hyderabad and announced themselves as Champions. It was a splendid sight to most of the cricket fans to watch Dhoni lifting the trophy as a Captain.
