    Next West Indies Captain...For ODIs at least

    I was bored and with Lara retiring just wanted to see who you all thought would be the best choice to replace him. All the candidates I've named have played quite a few matches for the WI and I'm sure have at least captained or vice captained the WI in an international.

    For me it's Sarwan. He's been being "groomed" for this for four years now and if he can't do it now he probably won't be able to again. Vice captain to two Lara terms and one of Chanderpaul. Been captain of Guyana for a couple seasons now. Has looked good in the occasions when he's been given the task to lead the team with Lara off the field or unavailable.

    Oh Joseph and Ganga are there just for fun.

    I would like to see Chris Gayle as the captain, TBH West Indies really don't have to many good options to select a captain.

    Seeing as how Daren Ganga and Sylvester Joseph aren't even in the ODI squad at the moment I think it would be a little far-fetched if they were to be appointed the next captain of the West Indies. Still, a suprise could be in store but I think it's very unlikely that either of these two will be the next captain. They have plenty of FC captaincy experience, and could be possible candidates for the Test captaincy but not in ODI cricket.

    Shivnarine Chanderpaul was woeful as a captain, he honestly looked like he had no idea how to do the job and still score runs. It would be a massive backwards step to re-appoint him as a captain and would ruin Chanderpaul as a cricketer I think. Dinesh Ramdin has only just secured his ODI spot from Carlton Baugh, and is too young and inexperienced to be thought about as a captain at the present point of time. His leadership skills are very good by all accounts and I can see him captaining the side in the future.

    Really, it comes down to a straight choice between Chris Gayle and Ramnaresh Sarwan. One of whom has FC experience as a captain and the other who doesn't, simple choice really and I would be suprised if Sarwan doesn't get the job. Not to say that he deserves it or anything.

    I wanted to vote for Gayle but I don't think they will take the risk of making him Captain. Also I think that his form could potentially suffer if he was made Captain

    Sarwan ahead of Gayle as he seems to have been groomed for it. Shiv is a backward step. I would never appoint a 'keeper as captain and the other ones - well if they ain't good enough for this WC squad...
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....

    I am a keeper and as such may be biased, however why should being a keeper be any disadvantage to being captain. I think its actually beneficial as a keeper you are always in the play.

    Because of your position in the field you have a similar viewpoint to the batsman and can see the gaps and areas which would be easy for him to work into. Also a keeper is usually one of the biggest talkers in the team which makes him more likely to take control of a match when things aren't going well

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    If the West Indies want to both neutralize Chanderpaul's batting and submit themselves to some ridiculously poor captaincy in one move, sure.

    It's unlikely he'd get the captaincy though. With Lara retiring he'll be up for his spot as a batsman. Unless Sarwan fails horribly he won't get a chance.
