Former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming has dismissed reports about him succeeding Gary Kirsten as the coach of the Indian team after the World Cup in the sub-continent.

The 'New Zealand Herald' quoted Fleming as saying that coaching isn't an important part of his life at the moment.

Rumours were rife that the IPL team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) coach would take over the reins of the national team from Kirsten once the South African's contract expires after the quadrennial event.

Fleming, a veteran of 111 Tests and 280 ODIs, said that cricket is only important for him two to three months a year when he's looking after the CSK in the IPL.

He said he is enjoying his career in business and has made a commitment to spending more time with his family.
