    New strategy to win matches in IPL

    Following Team Mumbai, Team Hyderabad also changed their captain to Gilchrist and they have won the game.......Now we are having 3 foreign captains in IPL and all those teams are in winning mode now.........

    Is this a new strategy for victory??( I think Laxman, by himself stepped out from the previous game)

    Whom will they replace for Dhoni??

    problem was they were handing out captaincies to only indian players, some of which totally suck ass as a captain, like dravid.

    gilchrist is vice captain of Australia...he shouldve been captain from the get go, as should Ponting for Kolkata, instead they give a token captaincy to Ganguly who basically dug a hole for his team that they wont get out of.

    It is very arguable whether Ponting is a better captain than Ganguly. Who is a better captain would vary depending on the person you ask.

    That is not the important point though. Ponting could not have been appointed captain as he was going to the Windies after a few early matches. Even if he had been, it would have not helped the team any better as Kolkata won when Ponting was playing for them with Ganguly as captain.

    That is illogical. X can be better than captain of Australia regardless of whether he is captain of India or not.

    Warne was never captain of Australia, how is he a better captain than the current captain Ricky Ponting?

    Because he just is.

    its like saying how pure the EPL is when more players are from overseas than local and half the owners are russian or american.

    The problem comes when you select players who aren't always good enough to make your starting XI in this format. Dravid and Laxman are very good captains and have shown that for India and in Laxman's case for his domestic sides. Both are better captains then say Sehwag. But Sehwag is more suited to this format and overall has better team, so it seems he is better captain. If you give Sehwag a lesser side, I think he will struggle as a captain as well. You can only go far with the tools you have.

    Granted though that Pollock is far better captain then Harby and probably even Tendulkar. Also Gilchirst is better captain then Laxman. But when it comes to Banglaore apart from Kumble there is no else who you could say is better captain.

    Next season I wouldn't be surprised if some more retired players take over as captains. But even though Sangakkara and Jayawardene are better captains then Yuraj, I wouldn't give them the captaincy. It would be pointless giving someone the captaincy that wont be able to play for whole tournment.

    Ponting is not there for the whole of IPL. It would have been the stupidest thing in history to appoint him captain.

    I am not sure whether Kumble is a better captain....
