Veteran New Zealand batsman Stephen Fleming has been appointed as the Head Coach of CSA T-20 League’s franchise Joburg Super Kings. Former South African Captain Faf du Plessis has been named as the captain of the franchise.

Notably, Joburg Super Kings franchise is owned by the owners of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings and Fleming is also the coach of the side led by India’s most successful captain MS Dhoni. Alongside naming the prominent positions, Joburg Super Kings also revealed their official franchise logo.

Stephen Fleming has a long history with the Super Kings franchise. He played for the side in the inaugural edition of IPL in 2008 and has been the head coach of the team since 2009. He has cordial relations with incumbent skipper Faf du Plessis who is also a part of the Chennai Super Kings franchise.

Fleming’s tenure for Super Kings has remained very fruitful. The Indian franchise clinched three titles under his mentorship and also won a Champions League final in South Africa, in 2010. The mastermind of Fleming and Dhoni has always remained a hot topic in the IPL.

With taking the responsibility for Joburg Super Kings, Stephen Fleming will aim to yield identical results to that of Chennai Super Kings and keep the faith of the franchise owners.

Meanwhile, Faf du Plessis has been assigned an important responsibility ahead of the much anticipated T-20 League. He was picked by the franchise as a direct signing alongside Moeen Ali, Maheesh Theekshana, Romario Shephard and Gerald Cooetzee. Notably, Ali and Theekshana have also represented for Chennai Super Kings with Du Plessis.

The duo of Stephen Fleming and Faf du Plessis will truly turn out to be beneficial for Joburg Super Kings who will battle it out for the domestic triumph. The schedule for the CSA T-20 League and the entire squad of Joburg will be announced soon.
