On this week's episode I have the absolute pleasure of chatting to former New Zealand captain, gun opening batsman and mastermind coach Stephen Fleming. Flem was one of cricket's great leaders, but as he'll explain, his skills as a skipper took years to develop. Flem also talks about his passion for reading, the art of man management and how he became one of the game's great slip fielders.
