    No Ponting? I know many people don't consider him to be the best, but he should be in there solely for his winning record.

    But Ponting's winning record is hardly down to being a great captain (which he isnt) its down to being part of a very good team

    I realize that, but the win/lose is so good he deserves a spot in the top 32. Whether he deserves to make it to the next round or not is a different story.

    Yes go ahead Perm, but first we need to complete 32 names which means still 12 names to go.

    Martin Crowe.

    Though possibly he was better as an ODI captain.
    He’s thrown a kettle over a pub, what have you done?

    While not great tactically he had a very good record as captain.
    14 wins 5 losses 7 draws
    Batting average of 42 (2 centuries)
    Bowling average of 21.36 (4 five-fers)

    Yep, he has one on the best result records in history.

    Id like to add Len Hutton and Ray Illingworth.

    Both regained the Ashes and Hutton was Englands 1st pro captain. In fact Hutton should have at least made the semis of the Battle of the Englishmen and could even have won it.
