You can't just say KP to captain england because he can hit the ball around the park. OK, he is the best player in the England team, but what about his captaincy skills?
Would he be able to get the players going when there backs are against the wall?
What about Bowling strategies? When to take power plays etc.
He might be able to play a "captains knock" but if he can't get the team going, to justify his knock, i don't think there is any chance of him being captain.
