Fleming denies quit talk


flemingStephen Fleming, the former New Zealand captain, has denied that he is on the verge of retiring after rumours began circulating during the second Test against Bangladesh in Wellington.

Fleming stepped down from the one-day captaincy following the World Cup and subsequently lost the Test job to Daniel Vettori. However, he has retained his position in the Test team — hitting 87 against Bangladesh in Wellington — and was surprised to hear talk of him walking away from the international game.

Fleming is now focussed on preparing for the visit of England, who arrive later this month for a tour that includes two Twenty20 internationals, five ODIs and three Tests. “I’m working hard on a couple of things batting-wise with that in mind. I’ve got three weeks now to work away at domestic level.”

Whenever Fleming does decide his time is over at the top level he admits that his lack of hundreds will be a disappointment. “That’s probably one of the regrets I’ll have with my 43 fifties - there are a lot where I look for the positive option and just don’t execute, or get carried away, get impatient.”
