- sad about fleming too, tho 10 years is a fair while to be captain... in an interview at the bbc cricket site (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/6588767.stm) he talks about how well they did with what they've got - sad but sometimes true - however that kind of attitude, that there's always that excuse is bad bad bad i think - I mean with Oram, vitori, bond and styris all fit - thats enough to take anyone down and they should see themselves as world class, not happy with 3rd or 4th if they're gonna go further.
