Mumbai: Chennai Super Kings need to quickly get over the mauling they received from Glenn Maxwell’s punitive bat and bounce back to win their high-octane clash against Mumbai Indians, head coach Stephen Fleming said.

“We had reflected on the Maxwell factor at the press conference (at Cuttack two nights ago). On the positive side we scored (around) 190 (187). Our batsmanship is looking good. “But we can tie up under pressure and Maxwell has put us under a lot of pressure in this tournament,” said the former New Zealand skipper.

“In other games we have been good. We need to bounce back and play well in this game and get another win under our belt which is very important,” said Fleming.”It’s crucial to go on a run and win six in a row which will put us in a very good position. We know the next three games very important for us.

“All we are concentrating on is to sustain (position) in the top 2 by winning and maintain pressure on Rajasthan (Royals) and Sunrisers (Hyderabad). The table can change very quickly,” he explained. PTI
