Fleming also spoke about the rising COVID-19 cases in the country. He stated that the team will keep a close eye about the situation related to Dhoni’s parents.
“Not a lot of talk about this [Dhoni’s family situation] between the players. But from the management’s point of view, we are well aware of his family’s situation. Support has been set up for his family. I had a talk with MS and the situation is under control for now. We will monitor the situation for the next few days.
It’s a tough time for everybody, especially in India at the moment. We are spending quite a lot of time talking about care in the wider group of friends and family. We have that responsibility to ensure MS [Dhoni] has the support that he needs. We hope his family recovers quickly,” said Fleming in the post-match press conference.
