Pressure helps us: Fleming

Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming asserted that no panic button was pressed and the team was looking to chalk up its first win in the Nokia Champions League T20 tournament when they face Cape Cobras here today.

While rejecting the observation that the team was under pressure to perform following the stunning three-wicket defeat to the Mumbai Indians on Saturday, Fleming said the expectations were always high given the Super Kings' track record.

"We are always under pressure. We were under pressure in the first game. Nothing has changed. I don't know how many wins we need (to go through to the semi-finals).

"We put ourselves under pressure as well because we want to win, especially at home. And we want to keep winning competitions, so we don't look to have easy games and there are no easy games," Fleming said.

Looking ahead to the game against the Cobras, Fleming said the team was still to sit down to work out a combination. "We have got a group of players that has won three competitions.

But we're very mindful and if there is a change to be made, we will make it tomorrow after we watch the first game," he said.
