Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming lost his cool and lashed out at those questioning the thought process behind sending Kedar Jadhav ahead of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in their Indian Premier League match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
CSK lost by seven runs to the David Warner-led side on Friday for their third straight defeat in the ongoing edition of the lucrative league. “It is a question?” a fuming Fleming asked at the post-match press conference.
He (Jadhav) is our number four, Dhoni, primarily, is a middle to a backend player, Kedar Jadhav is our number four, he plays a dual role, if we get off to a good start he might move down and let Dhoni up.
If you lose early wickets then your number four batsman goes in.
Jadhav faced 10 balls for his three runs. On the partnership between skipper Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja, which brought CSK back into the game, Fleming said the team needs to be more productive in the middle overs.
