Ben on...40 for Fleming

I bought it up, so I'll carry through with my point, even though everyone else will tell you all about it:

Stephen Fleming, currently 60 not out, will retire with an average in excess of 40 – as he well deserves.

Apart from a brief period in 2006, Fleming hasn't had an average of 40 since his third test. He is retiring at the top of his game. I've been lucky enough to watch him bat today, in a fairly commanding partnership with Matthew Bell. Bell's been looking good, with 12 4s in his 69. Compared to Bell's rock and roll however, Fleming is pure opera.
