Stephen Fleming is a sensible and mature player along with being New Zealand's longest-serving - and most successful - Test match captain. A time with Middlesex in 2001 laid the foundations for a successful re-evaluation of his batting methods where the inability to convert half-centuries to centuries did no justice to his quality. He played an important part in taking New Zealand to the World Cup victory over South Africa. Fleming confirmed his greater batting consistency with a career-highest 274 not out against Sri Lanka in the first Test of their 2003 series. This was followed by an impressive 192 at Hamilton against Pakistan later that year and was named New Zealand's cricketer of the year in 2004. His 87th Test earned him the record for most caps won by a New Zealander and, in striding to the crease for the 150th time; this was the greatest number of Test innings for New Zealand.
