How CSK’s fortunes changed in the IPL, says coach Fleming

Story highlights

  • The CSK team is at the top with three wins in a row
  • Last time they failed to make it to the playoffs

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) head coach Stephen Fleming said his team, which has performed better than the previous Indian Premier League (IPL), has been consistently performing well this season due to changes in attitude and the inclusion of some key players.

Three-time winners CSK are top with three wins in a row. Six months ago in the UAE she failed to make it to the playoffs for the first time in tournament history.

“Winning three of the three matches is more than expected,” Fleming told a news conference after CSK’s win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). We were hoping to win three of the five matches. It would be good to win the next two matches as well.

“We are proud of the way we are batting,” he said. We are doing well in this area.

Sam Crane has maintained his form over the past year, while offspin all-rounder Moin Ali has done full justice to his role as the third-ranked batsman.

Fleming said, ‘We added some new players to the team, who made a difference. But changing attitudes is the key factor. I think there was a difference between the two.
