The Chennai Super Kings reigned supreme again as they clinched their fourth IPL title, defeating Kolkata Knight Riders in the final on Friday in Dubai by 27 runs.

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis were instrumental in their success throughout the season with the latter playing a Man of the Match knock in the final. RCB’s Harshal Patel, who bagged 32 wickets, was named the Player of the Tournament.

Players like Venkatesh Iyer, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ravi Bishnoi, had impressive years as they banked on their opportunities. However, there were many players, including few big names, who went through the season without a single appearance.

Narayan Jagadeesan featured in 5 IPL matches for CSK last season. He scored 33 on his debut, and a duck in the second game; he didn’t get to bat in the next games as Ruturaj Gaikwad stroked half-centuries and Jagadeesan’s chance didn’t come.

With both Suresh Raina returning and Moeen Ali added in the middle-order, and later Robin Uthappa replacing Raina, the 25-year-old Jagadeesan didn’t find a place in the eleven at all this season. He will, though, fetch good attention in the auction and could be one of the bankable players in the coming years for any IPL franchise.
