Chennai Super Kings coach and captain will face to face
The team of Chennai Super Kings won the IPL title for the fourth time by defeating KKR on Friday. As much credit for this victory goes to the team’s captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) and the players, the same goes to the team’s coach Stephen Fleming. From the strategy of the auction to the selection of the playing XI, he has been an equal partner with Dhoni in every decision. Together they made Daddy Army champions for the fourth time, although now both will be against each other. In the T20 World Cup, both are going to face each other without even landing on the field.
Chennai Super Kings’ IPL winning head coach Stephen Fleming on Saturday briefly joined the New Zealand cricket team ahead of the T20 World Cup. Under the guidance of former New Zealand captain Fleming, Chennai won the IPL title for the fourth time on Friday. A day later, he reached the camp of the New Zealand team. On the other hand, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who made India the world champion, has also been with Team India as a mentor during the World Cup.
Fleming joins New Zealand team
New Zealand Cricket tweeted, ‘Straight from the IPL final. Chennai’s IPL winning coach Stephen Fleming joined the New Zealand team for a few days before the T20 World Cup.

Mahendra Singh appointed as mentor of Team India
Along with the team for the T20 World Cup last month, the BCCI had also announced that Mahendra Singh Dhoni would take part in this tournament as the team’s mentor. BCCI secretary Jay Shah told after the team selection that he had spoken to Dhoni, captain Virat Kohli, head coach Ravi Shastri and the entire team management in this matter and everyone agreed about it. Under the leadership of wicket-keeper batsman Dhoni, one of the most successful captains in the history of Indian cricket, India has won two World Cup titles – the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa and the 2011 ODI World Cup in India.
