    He's been OK, not great. But what a batsman. Overtakes Miandad for mine, all his knocks just save the teams ass and he makes batting look so great.

    He's a pretty average captain and as archie said, he tends to let the game drift along.

    An absolute intelligent judgment by Archie Mac . I think that apart from in-field clownalities, he also never handled the outta ground captaincy activities properly . He is slow in reacting and lacks the knowledge tbh !
    I remember once when he took the poor light ,and there was a clear prediction of heavy showers the next day (against Newzealand ) . I agree that the Hair is , was and will be a problem but some of his (Inzamam) reactions did let so many people speak against Pakistan as a whole .
    Imran was the man tbh . His personality and behavior is like a text book for all the captains of today and I am afraid that Pakistan could never get a proper literate captain after Aamir and Wasim Akram .
    I believe that he is there because of pure luck and being the only senior guy in the team .

    It always amazes me just how often the Pakistan team changes its captain

    I think in Aust we have had more PMs then Aussie Test captains

    I can think of all the Test captains but I am coming up short on the PMs

    Haha, I'm a bit like that myself, although I could probably do a better job of naming them all since Bradman played his last Test in 1948 without cheating.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Bill Woodfull, Sir Donald, Lindsay Hassett, Ian Johnson, Richie Benaud, Bobby Simpson, Bill Lawry, Ian Chappell, Greg Chappell\Kim Hughes, (Simpson again and Graham Yallop during the Packer Schism, but I don't count that, even if John Invararity had been given the captaincy), Allan Border, Mark Taylor, Stephen Waugh, Ricky Ponting.

    I might have missed someone, that's off-top-of-head.

    As for England in the same time-period...

    It's hard to use a poll-option - what I'd say is that he's been excellent on the man-management side of things, everyone connected with the team seems to give the impression that the players are happy in the dressing-room and that internal-wrangling should be suspended for as long as he's at the helm (no reason to assume it won't resume once he quits, mind). Like Imran in that respect (and like virtually no other Pakistan captain of recent times). A real paturnal figure - and his strong religious beliefs undoubtedly help there, too.

    But unlike Imran, he's no master tactician. Perhaps not quite as bad as he's sometimes painted, but no genius. I'm not prepared to offer an opinion of his intelligence based on his faltering English (which he only learned IIRR upon becoming captain), I've heard he speaks and writes fluently in Urdu. Many, many people sound simple when using a language which is not their first, and he's certainly not alone in that in Pakistan.

    Gilchrist, but only when Waugh & Ponting were injured.

    I'm guessing we could match that in the last 20 years. Let's try ..
    Flintoff, Strauss, Vaughan, Trescothick, Hussain, Stewart, Atherton, Gooch, Lamb, Gower, Emburey, Cowdrey, Gatting. OK, not quite. Making it 30 years, add Willis, Fletcher, Botham & Brearley. There you go. And no cheating, honest.

    I wasn't counting injury stand-ins. Then you'd have all sorts.

    Quite a few of whom had 2 (maybe even 3...?) spells in charge.

    As for the summer of 1988...
