Fleming has represented the Kiwis across all formats. However, went on to make a significant mark in the Test cricket, same as Vijay.
Raina wishes on Vijay and Fleming’s Birthday:
Raina showered huge applause on his colleagues. The southpaw also used superlatives to describe two illustrious cricketers.
Two openers, one right handed and one left handed. One from 🇳🇿 and the other from 🇮🇳. One is a silent warrior and the other is a Monk. Wishing these two fantastic cricketers who are more than a family now, a very happy birthday. @mvj888 @SPFleming7 #WhistlePodu pic.twitter.com/U7dkDZND0O

Meanwhile, CSK has already started their preparation as IPL steps on to a new decade. The players are giving it all in the training sessions.
However, Chennai is coming from a two-year ban and will like to dominate the league from the word go. Also, they have a staggering record to back their ability.
Apart from winning two times, CSK has reached the finals four-times having qualified for the qualifier in all the eight edition they participated.
The franchise has managed to keep their core group intact at the auctions earlier this year and Suresh Raina is expected to deliver big.
CSK will start their campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians on April 7.
