    I think Keith Miller should be on that list

    Both Hutton and Worrell were very negative captains.

    Hutton was the first to slow the over rates down

    And Worrell set very negative fields, but had a very attacking batting plan
    You know it makes sense.

    Worrell. FIrst truly great West Indian captain. Captaining a team of men from different countries wood be nothing new, seeing that thats what he basically did as captain.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!

    Would like to point out that in the 6 series Hutton captained, England never lost a series.

    Worrell captained in 3 series and lost 1.

    Hutton was also a groundbreaking captain being Englands first pro captain (eathshattering at the time) and having the very rare feat of beating Australia both home and away.

    Would also like to point out that Worrells average suffered more as captain than Huttons and Worrell never made a hundred as captain. This poll should not be the blowout it is.

    Obviously Hutton for me.

    While Len Hutton was a very good captain and has an excellent record, Frank Worrell was a real leader of men and judged by some to be the best captain the game has ever had, for that he get's my vote.

    OMG!

    21 - 3 to Worrell!

    Wtf?!
    That makes no sense at all.

    Worrell should not even be in the side - let alone Captain.

    (Its a wasted vote, but I would have no cricketing self respect left if I voted otherwise)

    Hutton

    Who am I to argue with such a landslide.
    Worrell.
    And I love this team, too. I dont know how I missed voting for it, but its one hell of a formidable lineup and would sure take the fight to any international team.

    that too after not selcting all-time greats like compton, harvey, benaud, bedser, hazare, mankad and tayfield. an awesome team no doubt.

    worrel is my choice too.
