IPL 2020: We’ve used six-day break pretty well, says CSK coach Fleming

IPL 2020: We’ve used six-day break pretty well, says CSK coach Fleming

Dubai, Oct 1 (UNI) Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming on Thursday said that the six-day break for his team came at the right time to help them get clarity on what they needed to do to get their IPL 2020 campaign back on track.
CSK started the season with a win over Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi, but lost the next two games against Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah and Delhi Capitals in Dubai.
'It came at a good time because the first three games were in quick succession and all games were at different grounds, so you have to appreciate trying to read conditions, for each game being predominantly the first team to play there was tough.
And also coming off a couple of challenges we had off the field, we’ve used this break pretty well, we got some clarity around what we need to do and have practised very well,' Fleming told the CSK website ahead of Friday’s match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The three-time champions will be playing four of the next five games at a single venue (Dubai). For a side that has played each of their first three matches at different grounds, it comes as a welcome change.
Fleming feels that playing in the same venue for an extended period of time would be helpful to settle in and try and read conditions.
"It's very helpful that we can settle in and try and read conditions at one ground and not several. I'm looking forward to putting in a bit of performance than we did the last time we played at Dubai where we were outplayed by Delhi Capitals. There were a number of areas that we weren't happy with, and we've worked hard on those," he said.
Former Kiwi captain also said that Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo will be available for selection for Friday's match.
Rayudu starred in CSK’s win over Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener but missed the next two matches due to a hamstring injury while Bravo has not featured in any of the fixtures so far due to injury.
