Stephen Fleming, one of the most respected cricketers of his time and a honorable coach of Rising Pune Supergiant, who are playing the Indian Premier League Finals against Mumbai Indians at Hyderabad. So, why are we talking about Stephen Fleming, when he is just another coach? Well, here is the real reason why we are talking about him. He has recently kept a promise, which was unique in a certain way.
So what was the bet?
He had promised he will wear a suit if Rising Pune Supergiant reached the final and like a true gentleman he obliged to the bet.
Holding Willey tweeted the actual reason whole situation. They tweeted saying,” Apparently, Stephen Flemming made a bet with his players that he will wear a suit if the team reaches the finals! #RPSvMI #IPL”

So its done, Flemming had made a bet which he kept. As we speak, RPS is on cruising to their maiden Indian Premier League title. They folded MI for 129, at a certain stage they were looking down the barrel to get folded for under 100. Currently, RPS is 77 for 2 and their two most experience batsman Steve Smith and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are at the wicket and are slowly but surely carrying RPS to victory.
Flemming is no stranger to IPL Finals, he has made it to this stage with Chennai Super Kings in the past as well.
