Captaincy doesn't seem to have effected his batting at all. If anything it has only strenghtend his mental resolve and imporved his personal performance. You cannot accuse him of not leading from the fore-front. [witness the last couple of games again Aus]BTW, do u guys think he will be a better batter if relieved from captaincy
Ohh, that's a brilliant post. I have nothing much more to add. You can't blame Inzy for his poor performance as captain, but you can't deny he's been poor either. It wasn't his fault, it was the selectors, board or whatever.SJS said:It has happened before, particularly in the sub continent and will happen again.
Hand over the captaincy to someone for not the best of reasons. Either because he is the most senior in the side. Or because he is the most pliable. Or because he is the least controversial. Or because he is least likely to clash with the manager/coach etc etc.
And then when the poor guy does EXACTLY as should have been expected viz , a bad job, jump on him from all sides.
Inzemaam was never a captaincy material and his performance as a captain is as much to be blamed as Dravid's as a wicket keeper, PERIOD
