Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming on Wednesday, said that he was not unduly worried by his side's death bowling issues but would look to improve the overall bowling when they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their IPL match here on Thursday.

"I am not worried about death bowling. There is always pressure in 20-20 cricket. There are very good hitters in the game now. Look at Villiers and Steve Smith even if you bowl well they have got the ability to reverse sweep or stand on the leg stump and hit it on the covers. So, it is very tough skill. I think Bravo is doing well for us. But, we want to do better rather. In fact, we want to do better with our bowling performance," he said.

Fleming said they will look to create points gap between them and the rest of the teams.

"I think this game is different and top of the table clash. If we can win this and the next one we will then create a gap between us and the rest of the teams. So, tomorrow's game is very important for our side. We are catching up after having lost two matches here earlier," Fleming told reporters at the press conference.

Fleming said CSK hasn't bowled Suresh Raina in the tournament so far as they haven't found spin friendly wickets.

"He (Raina) very much gives an option to us. The pitches that we have played on have not turned excessively. The onus is relying on the main bowlers to do the job. If conditions are right he might come on to bowl," Fleming said.

Despite Murali Vijay not been in the best of knick, Fleming expressed his faith on the Indian opener.

"Vijay has not really fired in this season. We have backed him for a while and will still back him. Hussey has been performing well right up, Raina now has joined in the middle with good scores. While I am concerned about Vijay's failure, certainly I am not going to change now."
