    And yeah, by the way it's Sudeep. Don't worry though, most people make that mistake.

    I think he was just lucky to have so many good players and, because of the number of all rounders (Pollock, McMillen, Kallis, Kluesner and even himself to a lesser extent), a very long batting line up.
    Not in the same strasosphere as Brearly captaincy wise. Dermot Reeve was also very good IMO. Both of these 2 were skippers who would do something totally unexpected to influenece the game. I thought Cronje's captaincy was very staid and predictable.
    You what ? you wanna say that there wasnt any significant change before and after Cronje.

    I dont think there was. Get beat by the aussies. Bottle it against England over here. Bottle it when it matters. Things are pretty much the same. The only difference is they don't throw games for money anymore.

    Brearley took a team which was nowhere near the best around to heights far above where their talents suggested they should be (a similar job is being done by Fleming for NZ, who is IMO the best captain around in International Cricket)

    Taylor and Waugh had very good records, but such is the gap between their Australian sides and the rest of the World that I maintain a blind one armed man (or for someone with less value to the team, Brett Lee) would have a similar record as captain.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    I think anybody in charge of the WI would have to be so tough as you have the various islands and any claims of inslurarity etc.

    Frank Worrell was a brilliant captain and knew how to get the best out his players. His message was simple, treat them like adults, and they behave like them and you get the best out of them and they respect, treat them like kids and they behave like kids.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW
