Fleming retired from Test cricket in 2008. Since then he has not held any official role regarding the New Zealand cricket side. During this decade, Fleming has proved himself as one of the best and successful coaches in franchise T20 Cricket format. He has worked with Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League and Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League (BBL).
“There’s a little bit of time before my MIQ (Managed Isolation Quarantine) spot and it’s a great opportunity,” Fleming told the NZ Cricket media team in Dubai. “We’ve talked for a while about sharing ideas and coming into the camp. Just watching these players who I’m a big fan of. I am very lucky to have this opportunity.
“I’m doing five days now pre-World Cup. We have talked about the conditions in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which we [Chennai Super Kings] had been playing in, and also got some ideas back from him [Stead].”
New Zealand has placed in group 2. Former champions Pakistan and India are also in group 2. The Kiwis will play two games in Sharjah and two games in Dubai. Moreover, the pitches are sluggish and slowed down at the end of the Indian Premier League.
According to Stephen Fleming, the conditions of UAE will be challenging. He also praised the talent in New Zealand cricket. It’s a good squad. We’ve never had as much talent as this within New Zealand Cricket, so getting the right balance and the way you want to play the game is very important. The skill set and what these guys put out, and entertain us with, is very high,” Fleming said.
