Captains must have inherent characteristics and qualities that allow them to get the most out of their teams. Through this article i will try my Best to answer this Question for you guys.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni –
Mahendra Singh Dhoni or Mahi as he is fondly called by his fans, came to lime light when the performance graph of Team India was in a slope with Dada’s Retirement and bad form on Top Guns. Soon after taking over Captaincy in all three formats he proved his supporters right by Winning the Inaugural Edition of ICC T-20 Cricket World Cup held in South Africa.
Under MS Dhoni For the first time in Test Cricket History India became Number One in Test cricket. In fact, India managed to even win the 2011 ICC Cricket world Cup breaking the long standing barren run since 1983, with the captain leading from the front by scoring a match-winning knock of 91 in the final versus Sri Lanka.
Saurav Ganguly –
Saurav Chandidas Ganguly or Dada as he is popularly known by his fans. Many call him a born leader. He came as a ray of light for then Team India who were often called as “Ghar ke Sher”. He combined Youth with Aggression and produced a Devastating team. He was the one who installed the Courage and the Aggression in the Team India . He used to believe in power of youth and always backed the Youngsters. Saurav Ganguly is also the only captain who has won a test series against Pakistan in Pakistan itself.
He taught Indian to look into the Eyes of the opponent and play game aggressively Even though he never won any World Cup for Team India still his is called by many as best captain ever of team India. He would be always remembered as the Captain who thought Team India to win overseas.
Kapil Dev –
India has produced so less quality all rounders that one can easily count on fingers, Among them one name Simply stands out and outshines others . That is Kapil Dev also known as Haryana Hurricane ! He came into lime light when India was a minnow country in World Cricket..
It was under his captaincy that Indian team started believing that they could win too. Just remember how courageously India defended its Low Total against Massive West Indies Batsmen in the Finals of ’1983 WorldCup and became World Champions.
