    I don't think this will ever happen though, because I doubt he will ever crack a regular Test birth.

    Pakistan & The West Indies I feel are the two sides that would struggle to find another Captain at the moment beyond Inzi & Lara.

    I think NZ would too....and SA won't go back to Pollock, so they would also struggle.

    Not sure about that. We've got Cairns, Oram, Vettori etc..I don't think it's really that dire.

    None of them strike me as particularly good options at this stage in their careers.

    NZ have always had to be tactically good to make up for other weaknesses & im sure a few players have learnt alot from Fleming. Captaincy is the least of NZ's problems

    Only because Fleming has got so long left in him!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Vettori has been touted as a future captain of New Zealand.

    At this stage any captain would be fill-in.

    Who would captain Jacques Rudolph?

    I hardly doubt Kallis will ever captain South Africa.

    Not neccesarily Marc! apparently there is a rule only in NZ Cricket that tells a player to retire through injury around the age of 30.

    But if Fleming were to be injured tommorow, i'd be more than happy to see Oram or Vettori have a shot. Although at the moment Chris Cairns is the VC & he's done a pretty good job whenever he's been required.

    LOL!

    In all seriousness though, have any of these names had any experience skippering at any level?

    Not sure how much Domestic Cricket they play (if I were the NZ Board, I'd ban them playing anything to avoid injury! )

    I know Oram captains Central Districts - may have even lead NZ 'A' once of twice from memory. For Cairns and especially Vettori, however, I'd imagine it would have been fleeting.

    Probably as much as Andrew Flintoff and Steve Harmison play for Lancashire and Durham respectively.

    Well Cairns has captained Canterbury, NZ 'A', Nottinghamshire & NZ.

    Vettori I don't think has captained any side but I think he's capable of giving it a go.
