Wellington - Former Test captain Stephen Fleming says he is not interested in taking over from John Wright as coach of the New Zealand cricket team "from a selfish point of view."

Fleming has been co-coach of the Chennai Super Kings, who narrowly failed on Saturday to win their third straight Indian Premier League title.

He told New Zealand's Live Sport radio on Monday that while he enjoyed the experience of coaching Chennai each year, he was not yet prepared to take on the responsibility of a national team.

Fleming said "the timing really is the main point for me, I'm not quite ready to get back onto that roundabout of international cricket."
