“If you look at both of them (Dhoni and Fleming), they’re both very calm and very level-headed, which I like as I feel I’m similar in that respect. To work under and alongside MS (Dhoni) has been a pretty cool experience for a few years now,” Mitchell Santner said ahead of the 1st T20I at Ranchi. “I guess it’s nice to be back at his home ground as well. And Flem (Fleming) — he’s the same, very level-headed and keeps it pretty relaxed and that’s what we try to do in this set-up as well.”
