Notwithstanding Ravindra Jadeja’s poor showing in the IPL, Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming has backed the all-rounder, saying he believes in giving chances to players rather than chopping and changing a winning combination.

Comfortably perched at the top of the table, CSK have won 7 out of their 10 games and Fleming insists that the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side can carry the weight of non-performers as long as they are winning.
