Prior to being picked by CSK, the former South Africa captain struggled to leave an impression in IPL. But since joining the Chennai team, he has reached new heights of success. Now retired from Test cricket, the 36-year old can give more time to T20 leagues. His comfort against spin in this format stands in stark contrast to his struggles in India in the last two Test series here. 16 half-centuries in 84 IPL matches is a testament to that. This is why CSK find him so useful.
