    Captains in 2015..

    A thread inspired by Agent nationaux's thread on the QF captains.

    Which players do you think will be leading the Test Playing nations in the 2015 World Cup?Lets assume that the list of test playing nations in 2015 remains the same as it is now.

    I'll start with my pick :

    Australia - Michael Clarke
    England - Eoin Morgan
    India - MS Dhoni
    Pakistan - Muhammad Hafeez
    Srilanka - Chamara Silva
    SouthAfrica - AB De Villiers
    West Indies - Darren Bravo
    New Zealand - Ross Taylor
    Bangladesh - Shakib Al Hassan

    I reckon Dhoni will either,

    a) have a run of bad results
    b) form loss
    c) loss of motivation to captain or;
    d) be ousted by politics

    by 2015.

    Four years is an incredibly long time to be captain of a national team.

    Don't agree with you there.

    If there was one captain i'm sure would still be captain in 4 years time,it's Dhoni.

    The fact that he won't win this WC would only motivate him further in 2015

    Hafeez will not even be in the side by this time next year his golden run with the ball will end soon and you can't carry an opener around who averages 22 and strikes @ 60.Reckon it will be someone from the younger lot someone like Azhar Ali or Fawad Alam.

    I predict Morgan to play for the Irish again because by 2015 Ireland will get Test Status.

    I also think it's quite funny that Salman picked Dhobi and Professor as captains

    Dhoni might get sacked on Thursday if India lose to Pakistan nevermind lasting 4 more years.

    Too soon to call for Morgan as a captain but who knows what will happen in the next 4 years, would have my money on Cook though as i see him as the next test captain and he may replace Strauss as one day opener/captain as well.

    Dhoni will have had enough by 2015.

    Virat Kohli ftw.

    Dhoni isn't going anywhere guys.

    He is the most natural leadership material India has got. He took over captaincy at a difficult time after the 2007 WC debacle and Dravid's sudden resignation as a captain. He brought so much calm to the proceedings and eased into the role so seamlessly that its just taken as granted. He showed tremendous maturity when he had been in international cricket for less than 3 years.

    He isn't quite appreciated enough on this forum.

    Dont think Chamara Silva has too many chances being captain of Sri Lanka in 2015. I have a feeling the likes of Mathews might be ahead of him in the ladder even now.

    Even if they do, the 4 year rule says he won't be.

    Four years is an incredibly long time to be captain of a national team.
    It is. And given Ponting is announcing, apparently, that he's standing down as captain today, it's worth remembering he's done the job in ODIs for about 9 years and in tests for 8 years, which is an amazing achievement in itself.

    AB lasted nigh on a decade as skipper I think. Massive effort, though there was less touring back then, of course. 93 tests as skipper for AB, Ponting has done 80, with 220+ matches as ODI skipper, winning 75%+.

    That's an insane record tbh.
