    Four world cups as captain

    Fleming would achieve it in 2007? Don't recall perfectly if he was the captain in 96 but i am 99% sure he was.

    Has any one else achieved this? Lloyd, Azharuddin were captain in three WCs and there well may be others in that list but not sure if any one has had 4 yet.

    Nope. Fleming wasn't captain in '96. It was LK Germon in all six matches that they played.
    RIP Craigos

    I can only think of Lloyd & Imran too.

    England, OTOH, have had a different captain for each WC, which may be a record.

    KJ Hughes was the captain, although DW Hookes captained the last match Aussies played, probably because Hughes was injured or rested.
