Fleming to wait and watch Buchanan theory

Chennai: Joining the debate on John Buchanan's 'multiple captain' theory, Chennai Super Kings' coach-cum-player Stephen Fleming on Monday said it looked complicated but he would prefer to wait and watch what would come out of the idea.

"It sounds complicated. You speak to John he thinks about lot of challenges that the game throws out. I will wait and see what happens," said the former New Zealand captain Fleming before the team's departure to South Africa for the second edition of the Indian Premier League.

"It is certainly not something that I want to try but let the captain be proud of. I firmly believe that the decisions that he makes on the ground is seen to a point. I am interested to wait just to see how he decides what explodes out of it," he added.

Kolkata Knight Riders coach Buchanan has floated the multiple captain idea for his team for the second IPL season which has evoked mixed reaction in the cricket world.

Fleming felt the technical part of the game would play a major role in the game. "The cricket season in South Africa is getting over and the pitch conditions during the IPL tournament is not going to be the same."
