Coaches about their Teams and First match:
“Great rivalry (against MI) and this is what the competition needs. We couldn’t ask for a better game to start with. A game of this intensity at this ground is always a thrill. (It is) hard to win (here), just as we are hard to beat at Chennai and that’s an aspect of successful teams, they defend their home patch well. Wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.” – Stephen Fleming, Chennai Super Kings’ head coach, on team’s return to IPL.
“I think we have more than just those two (Mustafizur and Bumrah). McClenaghan and Cummins have the ability to bowl hard and have done a really good job bowling at the back also. We aren’t just going to roll out the same plan every game with Jasprit and Fizz [Mustafizur] bowling at the back end.” Shane Bond, Mumbai Indians’ bowling coach.
