Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni avoided the media for the second time in two days in the wake of the spot-fixing scandal, but coach Stephen Fleming defended the captain, saying he was well known for being reclusive.

"That's his style. In this case, I can represent the team well," said Fleming replying to a query on why Dhoni did not turn up to take questions from the media at the post-match press conference.

"He does not do a lot of media, you know that. His commitments are high. That's all I can say," he added.

Earlier, on the eve of the final also, it was announced that there would be a joint press conference by the captains of both the teams (CSK and Mumbai Indians) but it was altered at the last minute and instead the teams' coaches addressed the media.

The arrest of Vindoo Dara Singh, who was spotted with Dhoni's wife Sakshi during more than one matches in the T20 league, had put spot-fixing shadow on Chennai Super Kings. Even team owner Gurunath Meiyappan had been arrested.
