Moving out of Chennai was difficult: Fleming

Chennai, May 28: After arriving in their home city post winning the Indian Premier League (IPL) title, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) coach Stephen Fleming said relocating to a different venue was a tough decision for his side.

“Most of the plans were to build a team according to Chennai’s conditions but those things weren’t in our control,” Fleming said at a press conference on Monday.

“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,” the former New Zealand skipper added.

Significantly, just a single match was possible in Chennai before BCCI shifted the remaining home games of the three-time IPL champions citing security concerns.

“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 explained. IANS
