Stephen Fleming joins New Zealand camp ahead of World T20

Post his fourth title with the Chennai Super Kings, Stephen Fleming joins the New Zealand camp for a short stint to help the team prepare

A day after helping Chennai Super Kings to wrap up their fourth IPL title, Chennai’s long-term head coach Stephen Fleming has joined his national side New Zealand’s camp for a short stint, ahead of the World T20 in the Middle East. While his role isn’t clear, it is expected that the former New Zealand skipper will help the team for their World Cup preparations. 

The BlackCaps will begin their World Cup campaign on October 26 against Pakistan in the Super 12 Stage at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, which has seen several low-scoring thrillers in the recently concluded IPL. With several Kiwi stars already having the experience of playing in these conditions, the inclusion of Fleming might boost their campaign. 

"Fresh from the @IPL Final - it's great to have @ChennaiIPL winning coach @SPFleming7 joining us for a few days ahead of the start of the @T20WorldCup #T20WorldCup," the BLACKCAPS tweeted.

Post their clash against Pakistan, the BlackCaps will also face-off India at the Dubai International Stadium in the next three days. The T20 World Cup will start in the UAE and Oman on Sunday with the final scheduled to be held here on November 14.
