Jamaica: Stephen Fleming quit as New Zealand's one-day captain on Tuesday after his side's crushing World Cup semi-final defeat by Sri Lanka.
Fleming, 34, has led the side for 10 years and wants to stay as test captain and continue playing limited overs internationals as a batsman.
"I want to keep on playing but I'm standing down as captain of the one-day side," he told a news conference.
"Every win was celebrated. The tournament wins were very special. I think we do damn well with what we have got."
Fleming has served as skipper for three World Cups, reaching two semi-finals.
But New Zealand have never reached the World Cup final and have now lost five semi-finals in nine tournaments following Tuesday's 81-run loss.
"I'm not sure there was much more we could have done. As far as planning goes, we were extremely clear in our minds what we wanted to do," Fleming added.
