He is among the most talked about possible candidates for the Indian cricket coach's job, but New Zealander Stephen Fleming does not even want to discuss the prospect of taking up the post left vacant by Gary Kirsten.

Fleming is currently incharge of IPL team Chennai Super Kings of which Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the captain.

"I enjoy my relationship with all the Indian players and Dhoni is a special player I am involved with. He is a captain with free space. I have been working with Suresh Raina and others as well. Just about time that I do not want to be talked about as a potential Indian coach," Fleming said after CSK's 25-run win over Pune Warriors here last night.

On Dhoni's captaincy and instincts, Fleming said, "he is not too much on planning. His captaincy is based on information on the field like how the pitch plays and the manner in which the opposition is batting. There is a gut feel about his captaincy.

Asked about his relationship with the World Cup winning Indian skipper, Fleming said, "We just have a relationship where we the players are talked about behind the scenes. He is always free on the field and that gives us an edge."
