Regarded as one of the finest captains in world cricket, Stephen Fleming is New Zealand's longest-serving and the most successful Test captain.

He has a huge burden on his shoulder balancing the pressure and duty of being the best batsmen in the side and being skipper.

But he has never let that burden take over him, which was confirmed when he struck a match-winning 134 off 132 balls against South Africa in the 2003 World Cup.

Fleming prefers to open in the shorter version of the game and is a world-class fieldsman in the slips area.
