He is gaining a lot of confidence, he is becoming more confident with his peers. When you have the Indian captain and some key players that make a big difference within the side. It's no doubt he turned the match today," Fleming said in the post-match press conference.<br /> <br /> "His English is getting better as well. You might laugh at that but it means he is a bigger part of the dressing room and so he is understanding more of what is going on," he said in a lighter vein.<br /> <br /> Lauding his team's fielding effort, the former New Zealand skipper said Michael Hussey's diving catch to dismiss Gautam Gambhir followed by <a href="/tags/Subramaniam-Badrinath/post" target="_blank">Subramaniam Badrinath</a>'s direct hit to run out experienced Jacques Kallis made the difference.<br /> <br /> "There was a good catch from Hussey and an excellent run-out by Badri. At 49 after seven overs you think it's going to be a good score. Our fielding came to the fore and made a big difference to the game. We are very proud of that," Fleming said.<br /> <br /> "No doubt that the run outs and the pressure we created helped to keep a good batting line-up down to that score.<br /> <br /> Getting Kallis out with was a huge thing. Our fielding was outstanding," he added.<br /> <br /> The Knight Riders had denied Super Kings a hattrick of IPL titles with a victory in the 2012 edition and Fleming said today's win mattered a lot to them.<br /> <br /> "For one, they are the defending champions. This game meant a lot to us so there was a lot of emotional energy as well," he said.<br /> <br /> "Both sides fielded very very well. Just one of those tough games, one where you have to grind it out with a match-winning innings. We created that opportunity and was good enough to get over the line."<br /> <br /> Fleming said they were trying to be innovative by opening with <a href="/tags/Ravichandran-Ashwin/post" target="_blank">Ravichandran Ashwin</a>.<br /> <br /> "We have got a very long batting line-up and he's got a pretty good record and he is not orthodox," the coach said.<br /> <br /> "We thought if we could break up the spinning pattern, and if Ash (Ashwin) could get a quick 20 or 30, chasing 120 would be a lot easier without main batsmen to come.<br /> <br /> "We thought it was worth the risk and the captain's been pretty keen on it for some time. And the way we batted after that it wasn't a bad gamble with Ash getting those 10-11 runs," he said.<br /> <br /> "We are giving things a try. We know we have to be innovative. We can't be reckless but we try to get better. We have a good formula that we can got to but we have to make sure we are using all our resources," Fleming added.<br /> <br /> Well aware of the Knight Riders strength, Fleming said they consciously played the spinners well.<br /> <br /> "We were desperate to play the spinners very well, and maybe a bit conservative. And we lost wickets at key times.<br /> <br /> "I don't think it was an easy wicket to chase down or set a big score. Every time a batsman got out, they got into trouble, plus a bit of pressure with run-outs."
