On Tuesday, Indian Express quoted sources as saying that BCCI is considering Fleming as a suitable candidate to take over the responsibility in place of Dravid. The Indian team is likely to go through a period of change across formats in the next few years and in such a situation, Fleming's long coaching experience could prove beneficial.

According to the report, informal discussions have already taken place with Fleming during the IPL. However, 51-year-old Fleming has not spoken to the CSK management about his desire to leave the franchise. Fleming became the head coach of CSK in 2009 and he has been associated with the CSK team since then.
