With 22 wickets so far, the 36-year-old out-of-favour India bowler is one of the top wicket-takers in the eighth edition of Indian Premier League.
     
"I have got three or four Man of the Match awards this season and that says it all. For a fast bowler to pick up that many awards in one season is not easy," Nehra was quoted as saying in the IPL website.
     
The Chennai Super Kings player called it his best season in IPL.
     
"If you see stats-wise, then definitely yes. But I can't just say that this is the best IPL I have had till date. Even in 2008 when I played for Mumbai Indians or for the Delhi Daredevils in 2009 and 2010, I was bowling really well.

"At that time obviously I was five years younger as well. But when you pick wickets, people remember you more. In T20 sometimes it happens that you are bowling really well but you don't get wickets. This time I am among the wickets and I am picking up wickets upfront which has really helped my team."
     
A clinical Chennai Super Kings on Saturday defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by three wickets in a nail-bitting second qualifier to set up a summit showdown with Mumbai Indians at the Eden Gardens.
