Losing Andrew Flintoff (left) mid-way through IPL-II won’t distract the Chennai Super Kings. Such is the team coach Stephen Fleming’s belief as he says situations like these should be taken in the stride. “He (Flintoff) has been a good influence. He bowled very well for us in the second game. But AB de Villiers had his day. It’s such a fine line between having a good day and a bad day.”

Fleming, who made his debut as coach with the Chennai side, said he has settled into his new job and though the challenges of being a coach are different, he has not found it tough to adapt. The former Kiwi skipper knows how to calm a side in distress. Best of luck Fleming!
