Ahead of the clash against Gujarat Titans (GT) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Tuesday, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) head coach Stephen Fleming applauded young all-rounder Rachin Ravindra. He said that Rachin’s debut was a “performance that was really encouraging” in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). However, CSK will play their second game of the season against last year’s finalist, GT at their home, MA Chidambaram Stadium and they had won their first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by six wickets as well.

“He stuck to his game and part of introducing players to the squad is trying to get them as comfortable as possible. Mike Hussey works all around the plans predominantly we’re just encouraging players to do what they would do in their normal environment, whether it be New Zealand or South Africa, wherever it is, is to try and play as similar and do the same things they would do for their national teams,” Fleming said as quoted by CSK.

The former Blackcaps captain further praised Rachin Ravindra who played really well in the last match. He scored 37 runs off just 15 balls with the help of three fours and three sixes as well. Stephen Fleming also added that there are chances in the future that the left-arm spinner will get a chance to bowl in Chennai as the pitch conditions are pretty good as well.

“And that was just the case with Rachin. He played very well. There’s nerves around, there’s a lot of nerves in the first game, even from some of the seasoned players. So, to be able to put a performance like that was really encouraging. Possibly. Possibly at times, yeah. Conditions are pretty good at the moment, but his bowling is… Yeah, it is an asset for the team as well, definitely,” Stephen Fleming concluded.
