New Delhi: Stephen Fleming's six-year partnership with Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the Chennai Super Kings has been a successful one but the former New Zealand captain rates countryman Brendon McCullum and Australian Michael Clarke as better ODI captains at the moment.

"I believe Brendon McCullum and Michael Clarke are the two best one day captains at the moment. For me, a good one day captain is one, who is really aggressive. These two captain, McCullum and Clarke, are really aggressive captains. They don't take their foot off the pedal and are always looking to attack," Fleming told PTI during an exclusive interaction at the New Zealand High Commission.
