Chennai Super Kings may not go for foreign players in IPL auction: Stephen Fleming

Fleming refused to say much about how his franchise would go about in the players' auction. "We are looking for consistency from players in coming season of IPL. The beauty of players' auction is nothing is known before you actually buy a player. I cannot give you the details now," he said.

Chennai: Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming on Friday indicated that his team may not look for foreign players in Sunday's IPL auction in Chennai as he felt "looking for new overseas players will lose fan base".

Asked about continuing with the existing players in the CSK squad, Fleming said, "We would like to continue with the players. We associate with those quality players and develop them and plan our strategies. It is dangerous situation when you are looking for new overseas players as you will lose the fan base.

"We want to develop our relations with the same players as they would have understood the needs of the team and the management. The fans expect consistency from the players and performance and we need to deliver that," he said at the press conference for the Chennai Super Kings Super Cup, a local tournament for corporate clubs, to be organised by CSK.
