After losing the match against Delhi Capitals by 44 runs on Friday, he said, ‘We are a bit disorganized at the moment. We are missing some key players and we are trying to create such a balance so that we can be competitive. We are trying to pick players according to the pitches here.
He said, ‘Every wicket here is quite different from the other and we don’t have Ambati Rayudu, (Suresh) Raina and some players in the batting. We are trying to find a way or a combination to use the players. We have learned a lot in 3 days.
When the coach of the 3-time champion team was asked about not sending Sam Curren or Ravindra Jadeja up the batting order against Delhi, he said that the team had tried the scheme in 2 matches earlier.
Fleming said, ‘We have many options in batting, so we are a bit disorganized. Therefore, we need a clear plan. We are not getting a good start or big innings from the top order.
