Chennai team retains the title last season
new Delhi. Chennai Superkings had returned two years later in the last season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Two years of suspension were imposed on the team due to allegations of match fixing.

In his 45-second trailer, the captain of the team said Dhoni- not to kill the biggest crime for him, but to match-fixing.
It was a touching moment: Dhoni
In the trailer, Dhoni said, "The team was involved in match-fixing, there were allegations against me too. It was a tough time for all of us. The return was a passionate moment and I have always said that whatever you do not die from, He makes you stronger. " The documentary will be released on Hotstar on March 20.

Meupan and Kundra were trapped in spot fixing
In 2013, the role of management of Chennai and Rajasthan Royals in the spot-fixing controversy was considered suspicious. After this, the two teams were suspended for the two years together in July 2015. Rajan's owner Raj Kundra and the then Chennai CEO Gurunath Meiyappan were given life-long bans. Rajasthan and Chennai were replaced in 2016 and 2017 by Gujarat Lions and Pune Superjents teams in the tournament.
