IPL 2018 : CSK coach Stephen Fleming on Monday said that it wasn’t easy for the team to relocate out of Chennai. Explaining the concern, Fleming said, “Most of the plans were to build a team according to Chennai’s conditions but those things weren’t in our control. Moving out of Chennai was a difficult decision. We knew the conditions of Pune. We had to change the way we had to play the game,” Fleming said.
“We knew the conditions in Chennai. The experience enabled us to do that. It was a big change but we had to get on with it,” Fleming remarked.
Praising Watson, Fleming said: “We loved what Watson had done in the past and our discussion was of his future. We wanted him in a different way.”
“Opening the batting and bowling a few overs. He’s incredibly professional. He looked after himself and managed well,” the coach added.
