Fleming’s New Game Plan

Stephen Fleming made a gracious departure from the Black Caps on the fourth day of the final Test against England in Napier. Although New Zealand had a disappointing loss, Fleming left Test cricket much as he came, with his second elegant fifty of the match. England gave him a guard of honour when he came to the crease. “It was a very humbling … especially as it was from Michael Vaughan, who I regard as a good captain and a nice guy,” Fleming said. Leaving the pitch, he removed his helmet and acknowledged the standing ovation given him from all points of the ground – a fond farewell to a great captain, a great achiever and an almost great player. Fleming is set to play for the Indian Premier League and will also pursue a sports promotion and marketing career.
