Fleming attributes defeat to slow pitch

Ranchi, May 19: Chennai Super Kings batsman Stephen Fleming has attributed his team's defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore to a slow pitch in their IPL 7 tie played at the JSCA Stadium here.

"One of the main reasons for the defeat was difficult batting (conditions) on a slow pitch," Fleming said in the post-match press conference here last night.

Though the match was low scoring, yet the team expected to win, he added.

The former New Zealand captain lauded teammate Suresh Raina for his spectacular innings of 62 runs off 48 balls in the match.

Chasing 139 for a win, RCB defeated CSK by five wickets.
