    New Delhi: Harbhajan Singh has become one of the most decorated players in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) after winning his fourth title in eleven editions of the cash-rich league.

    Harbhajan won his first three titles with Mumbai Indians and in his maiden season with the Chennai Super Kings, he played a decent role in MS Dhoni's team lifting the cup.

    Following CSK's third title win, Bhajji took to social media to upload an image of himself, along with Dhoni, remembering the time when the duo lifted the 2011 ICC World Cup title at the same venue, seven years ago.

    Harbhajan's post read: "Same ground where we won the World Cup 2011 together and never imagine we would be playing together in ipl for the same team and winning it after 10 years playing against each other’s...Wankhede lucky venue for us ? @msdhoni @ChennaiIPL @IPL"

    Chennai Super Kings were considered one of the older teams in the competition as the average age of the team was over 30. But they showed that experience is a must when it comes to a grueling competition like the Indian Premier League. And they completed a fairytale comeback to the cash-rich league after two years by clinching their third title at the Wankhede Stadium.

    Australian all-rounder Shane Watson led the show with a stellar century on the night of the final as Sunrisers Hyderabad were completely outplayed on a wicket where the score of 178 looked more than par. Ambati Rayudu won CSK the game by hitting the winning runs and signed off what has been a brilliant season for the batsman.
