    Select the skipper: Best of 00s

    Here are the captaincy records of the seven cricketers from the team of the decade who have had the honor of leading their national teams in test cricket. In my opinion, this is one of the most interesting polls of the series because there is no clear cut favorite in the options. Please select one of them to lead this dream team.

    Code:
    RT Ponting  	64  	40  	11  	0  	12  	3.63
    BC Lara  	29  	4  	16  	0  	9  	0.25
    SM Pollock  	26  	14  	5  	0  	7  	2.80
    R Dravid  	25  	8  	6  	0  	11  	1.33  	
    AC Gilchrist  	6  	4  	1  	0  	1  	4.00  	
    V Sehwag  	2  	1  	0  	0  	1	-
    JH Kallis  	2  	1  	1  	0  	0  	1.00
    The team:

    Matthew Hayden
    Virender Sehwag
    Ricky Ponting
    Brian Lara
    Rahul Dravid
    Jacques Kallis
    Adam Gilchrist +
    Shaun Pollock
    Shane Warne
    Mutthiah Muralitharan
    Glenn Mcgrath

    Ponting, he's not a great skipper but decent enough to handle this team. Not willing to bet on Warne who never captained a test match.

    What a sad bunch of captains. Went for Pollock, I can't really justify why.

    Couldn't select Ponting because of his captaincy record in England.

    Agree with the above.

    Ponting enjoyed a very fruitful period as captain of a great side after Waugh's retirement.

    Though he isn't a brilliant tactician, the strength of the team should aid his leadership.

    Warne would be a roughie as he seems to have a good cricket brain.

    Unfortunately he doesn't have experience as a test match captain.

    Must say though that the list of choices are quite average.

    Gilly and Smith won the two most difficult tours this decade since Smith is not here so will go for Gilly.

    We are selecting the best team so the skipper should also be the best by your logic even Murali could be choosen as the skipper since anybody can manage a bunch of greats.

    Honestly, could do a lot worse than going Gilchrist. Won a series in India, and the test where Butcher won England the dead rubber shows he wasn't averse to taking a few risks himself.

    I think all XI should have been in the poll since there isn't a decent captain amongst them.

    dravid is the only one on the list to have won a series in england. gilly is the only one who has won in india. and ponting alone has won in SA. i am not sure of my choice yet.

    Fleming should have been picked on his captaincy alone.

    =/ You know he's talking about this fella right? Stephen Fleming | New Zealand Cricket | Cricket Players and Officials | Cricinfo.com

    Any reason why Warne's not in the poll options? Definitely the best captain on the list AFAIC.
