Two-ton Fleming Squashes Records

A testament to leading by example, Black Caps captain Stephen Fleming hit a career-best 274 not out in the first Test against Sri Lanka. Fleming’s total is the second highest test score ever made by a NZer, beaten only by Martin Crowe’s 299. His incredible performance, followed by an unbeaten 67 in the second innings of the drawn test was the 12th highest number of runs ever scored by an individual in a test. Earlier Jacob Oram and Daniel Vettori won the inaugural World Double Wicket competition for NZ.
