Keen to see Chennai Super Kings make their sixth IPL final, coach Stephen Fleming  said that the top-order needs to fire in the second T20 cricket qualifier against Royal Challengers Bangalore, here on Friday. Fleming insists that the top-four batsmen should come good to make things happen for the two-time champions. "Our batsmen are getting out at the wrong time. We are losing more wickets than we have lost in the previous IPL seasons. So we are seeing lots of batsmen having to play innings of substance when all we need is for our top four or five to get the majority of runs," Fleming told media. "That has probably been the difference this year as compared to other years we have fallen short on top-order runs. We have a chance of rectifying that now and we have a very good top-order to do that," he added. "Except for Brendon McCullum, who scored 400-plus runs, all our other batsmen are down from where they usually would be. We want our entire batting order to fire today. Bowling, on the whole, I think has done pretty well," he said.
