This email is has been floating round this morning, apparently Richardson has refused to comment but SKY have said it was filmed for a tv programme. Personally i tihnk it some clever damage control after a tensions boiled over between the pair, either way its some pretty dry comedy if its fake, you be the judge:

" Black Caps captain Stephen Fleming has hit out at former team mate Mark Richardson today at Eden Park, calling him 'an idiot' amongst other things after an interview was conducted between the two men before the fourth day's play today.

The transcript of the conversation

Richardson: Ok thanks, good luck.
Fleming: Thanks mate. (Interview ends) Yeah, you're an idiot. That's ridiculous, seriously that's just ridiculous. Two things: You've forgotten who your mates are, some of your comments in the changing room? And the other thing is you're just an idiot talking about scoring rates and picking up the... uh... the tempo of games; you were one of the most boring players to watch and from what I've seen so far in your commentary, it is crap. You're forgetting who your mates are mate; about six months ago you were with us.

This was the interview, which prompted the comments from Stephen Fleming:

It starts off with Mark Richardson addressing the commentators.

Mark: "Thankyou Smithy, it is a little damp underfoot out here in the outfield, but rest assured if it clears up soon we can have a full day's play.

Stephen, I realise you're a little underdone in this test, after playing all those one dayers, but can you tell me the real excuse why the Kiwi's have failed with the bat in this game?"

Stephen: "I think failed is a strong word, we came here with a game plan but unfortunately we couldn't stick to it at times and I guess that's what cost us"

Mark: Chuckles off to the side "But I mean, it's as if our batsman have been unable to get back into the swing of test cricket. Is that a fair assumption?"

Stephen: sort of stares at Mark "I think we just have to do the basics of what we know best when it comes to batting. I think at times we have done that well and at times maybe not so well, but we certainly know we have a fight on our hands".

Mark: "And what could be the reason for the slow tempo of the innings? Is it the pitch you think? Is it playing up? Or are our batsman stuck in between the 50 over game and the longer version?"

Flem mumbles a barley audible answer and then he says "thanks mate". "

Apparently it's a spoof, there's going to be a thing on the Cricket Company this week that will explain it all.
Be worth watching I reckon, because they showed Fleming saying that on the news the other day and it was bloody convincing. More so that the rexona ads anyway.
