Wary of RCB, says Fleming

Chennai Super Kings’ coach Stephen Fleming believes his team, after thrashing Kings XI Punjab, has erased memories of their first-match defeat to Mumbai. “The morale is pretty high after the win. You always want to get underway in the tournament.

“It is important for everybody to settle down and the longer it takes to get there, the more anxious you get. It affects right from the coaching staff to the players on the field. So the morale is high with the style of win, but we are a very realistic side. We don’t get carried away with big defeat or big wins. So you won’t find us different from our normal approach. The captain is pretty deep (level) headed,’’ said Fleming.

But the comprehensive nature of the win means CSK would find it difficult to tweak in Alblie Morkel, who has regained his fitness. “The way the team played in the last match it is difficult to make a change. All the overseas players in the last game played very well. So it will be hard for him (Albie) to push his way up,’’ said Fleming.

Though on the back of a terrific win, CSK are wary of RCB. “There is excellent rivalry between the two sides and I certainly respect the way they have started. (They have won) three out of the four games.”
