    The Best Captain in the World!

    Who do you think is the best captain in the world at the minute? I've made up a list of the people who I think are the best, please write back and give me your views.

    1. Stephen Fleming (because he's turned New Zealand into a competitive team)

    2. Steve Waugh (obvious reasons!)

    3. Nasser Hussain (done well with a mediocre England team)

    4. Shaun Pollock (top bowler, not a bad captain, too)

    5. Sanath Jayasuriya (got Sri Lanka up the Test Rankings)

    6. Waqar Younis (good bowler reasonable captain)

    7. Carl Hooper (not done very well with a rubbish, apart from Lara, West Indies team)

    8. Sourav Ganguly (dodgy captain, let England back into the ODI series)

    9. Stuart Carlisle (latest person to get the dreaded Zimbabwe captaincy, no offence)

    10. Khaled Mashud - Bangladesh captain (give the guy some sympathy, having to captain a very inexperienced side)

    These ratings are my own and I don't mind if you disagree. Hey, everybody has their own opinions!

    To be honest, we don't particularly care

    I'm more concerned with the team than who's captain. Would you rate Steve Waugh as highly if he was Zimbabwe's captain? Or Mashud as badly if he skippered the Aussies?

    I suppose if that happened, Mashud would be the best captain, and Waugh the worst!

    really I think there are only 4 good captains, the rest all need to improve their skills or they will never be a good captain.

    Fleming, Waugh, Hussain, Pollock (still needs more work but has the goods), after these 4..there is daylight really.

    do you think they would make the team in the first place ?

    Hansie Cronje. He was a great captain. I want him to play Cricket again.

    True bryce. Country's always pick their best player as captain.

    Brian Lara wasn't a very good captain.

    I don't want Hansie to play again. He can't win without cheating, can he?
