Here is why Stephen Fleming wear a coat in the dugout :- As Rising Pune Supergiant were locking horns against the Mumbai Indians, everything was at stake. The pressure was building up and everyone had started feeling the heat. Amidst of all this there was one man who had got his blazer out.
Yes! You read it right! Pune Coach Stephen Fleming had got his blazer out on a warm and sticky Hyderabad evening. Reports say he had promised someone that he will get his blazer out if Pune are playing in the final. Never being someone who would be shy of facing difficult situations, he kept his word!!
Stephen Fleming was seen at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium sporting a blazer for first part of the innings. Then after a while when it became too hot to handle he got it off.
Looking at his attire, a pulse question immediately came up asking “Should cricket coaches dress like football managers” to which 70% of people gave their approval.
It was another disappointing final for Stephen Fleming as an IPL coach as his team came second against Mumbai Indians. Stephen Fleming now has lost 4 IPL finals, most by any coach in IPL history and 1 as a player in 2008
