Fleming’s successful tenure with CSK comes as no surprise to the BCCI. He was a shrewd captain during his playing days for New Zealand. His coaching stint in the IPL exemplifies his immense value as well. As the league’s longest-serving coach, he has steered CSK to five IPL titles and two Champions League trophies.
