    Should Virat Kohil replace Dhoni as the Indian T20 captain ?

    Jono's heart flutters as someone else broaches the subject of his man being numero uno.

    But seriously, with India's failure in the past three T20 WC, should Dhoni be replaced as captain at least in the t20 format for starters by Kohli ?
    Kohli obviously being the long term (or maybe not so long term) successor in ODis and tests as well.
    Making him the captain for the 2014 T20 world cup would certainly be a step to grooming him for the bigger roles.

    Don't really see anyone else in the frame. Sehwag's is past his prime and Gambhir's total lack of form probably rules him out as well.
    Thoughts ?
    Zinedine Zidane is the greatest footballer ever !

    Don't burden the best player with Captaincy.. .. So give Gambhir the captaincy in all 3 formats..We have seen him captain and there is a passion to win and he has done good in the limited opportunities he has got..He is also a kinda player who performs well when given responsibility..Try Kohli as captain in some of the inconsequential ODI's we generally play and see how he does on the 2 important aspects of captaincy 1) Tactics 2) Player Management and go from there..

    I retract. India to select a specialist captain like that aussie kent.

    My vote goes to Ganguly; he can boundary ride and bat at XI using a sugar cane or something. Double win - he gets out of the commentary box and pisses off the front-row spectators instead. They're usually ***** anyway.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    hey virat,

    reckon you should be captain?



    and what about your critics, anything for them?

    He's got a great big minder who'll bash all his critics. Shame Dhoni never had one.
