Captaincy Ratings (Indian captains)

Recommended Posts

Nope, worst so far gotta be Dinesh Karthik

Screwing up his batting order and poor bowling changes

plus overly conservative and trusts experienced bowlers only

 

i think at one point vs SRH he wasn’t even making / taking decisions

Dhoni - predictable

Kohli - bored

Gambhir - angry with a chewt team

Ashwin - trying his level best 

Kdk - monkey kungfu as usual

Rohit - yet to wake up

Rahane - warne's puppet

 

Ash is the most impressive so far.. among InDian captains.. so I ahve decided to support Ashwin and kingsxi Punjab for this IPL... Go ash!!!

Good captaincy by Ash. Could have done away with UV though.

UV is going to be there for his star value. It is something PKXI fans have to get used to. I don't blame their management. Isn't he the only regular pUnjabi player? Sran is just a replacement.

Yes, I guess if he bats freely he might still be useful. Sad to see him like this.

its been years and kohli still cant get his team combinations right, extremely poor stuff

This... its so weird... so many years... had so many great players around him...good support staff as well... everything is right except the results... I guess people around him does not feel confident enough... he might be very intimidating...

Kohli is such a clueless captian on field for RCB...sometimes it feels like he has no idea about field placing, his bowling changes, etc..deservedly sucking since years now even with strong players...

when ever anyone says kohli shud captain alone n not take dhoni help, ye dekh lo 

"he does well in test without him"- different format absolutely different to LOI

 

Forget poor team, poor combinations n bad captaincy moves but his body language is really bad for his team . A captain cant have that kind of body language

So...Dhoni should play with Kohli for the next 10 years....great..

Have to say Virat is doing a very bad job of captaining RCB. From team selection to batting/bowling strategies to field setting to bowling changes. 

 

RCB squad is not great, but with a bit of innovation and tweaking, it can be pretty competitive. Vettori and Virat have been terrible. I have no doubt in my mind that Dhoni, Gambhir, Rohit, Warner, Williamson or even Ash would have done a much better job with this squad.

Maybe its not RCB. 

 

Its just Kohli. 

Maybe it is.

Kohli is too intimidating for other players. In Indian team luckily we have some contemporaries and seniors who can take responsibility of taking pressure away from other team members. MSD is been doing it for years now, you need different type of people in the team. RCB is all about Virat and his brand of cricket, nobody would have any guts to raise a point against him.

I would not be working under such an over aggressive leader/manager. It just ruins the confidence and self respect of team members being in constant pressure. That is not sustainable model.

Rohit's captaincy has been fine despite winning only 1 out of 4 matches. His bowling changes and everything were perfect in first match against CSK....but Bumrah probably had his worst match in a long time and we lost it. We were defending something around 140 in 2nd match and we made it till last ball. Rohit's bowling changes, team combinations are usually spot on

Ashwin is turning out to be one hell of a captain.

 

Against RCB, he exhibited some really attacking captaincy upfront, followed by some defensive captaincy to take the game deep.

 

Today, he went for an all-out defensive approach to put immense pressure on SRH who never even tried to go for it. I was quite impressed by his field placements today. However, he made a critical mistake of holding himself back too late, which didn't backfire today, but will do one day.

 

As for his bowling, he tried so hard today it was embarrassing. Maybe he should take a leaf out of his own book and focus on the basics. Leg spin or off spin won't matter if line & length is all wrong. lol. The reason for Mujeeb's success is first due to his line & length (especially the latter) and then due to his variations.

Virat wasted Watson last year in middle order.Dhoni gave him a position he was successful in international cricket as well as IPL. Results are there to see. Play the right players at the right spots.

 

Ajinkyas captaincy has been poor. Better slip fielders must be there in slip.

Dhoni is the worst of all.

 

Sends Jadeja ahead of Bravo and justifies it with some BS.

Picks himself when he shouldn't even be in the team with his tuk-tuk batting.

 

Good to see you back

Not at all impressed by rahane captaincy 

1. the guy changes field on every ball 

2. Tripathy is wasted down the order 

 

 

I thought it was perfect match to promote Rahul as opener as they had dropped Darcy. Rahul would atleast have got a batting position in which he excelled last year. By no means i am saying that he may have succeeded but they could have tried it. 

 

Ajinkyas captaincy is disappointing imo as well. Once you use wrong resources at wrong spots, then you ar enot just fighting the opponents, but fighting with your own blunders as well. Makes things doubly difficult for a captain who has no clue how to get most of each and every resource.

i think williamson missed a trick, he shud have gotten stanlake when raydu n raina were new, it may have failed but shud have tried.....he bought him back when both were set

 

Dhoni did the smart thing , packed his batting on a slow pitch which made raydu bat in middle and he is the best player to have on such pitches, they cud have easily gone for willey but faf was a better choice for this pitch

Bhuvi unfit

Stanlake out of IPL

warner who was half the team , they lost him at start 

dhawan came out of injury, dnt think he is 100%

Coaching staff n captain deserves a lot of credit

Rohit f.ucked up in the biggest do or die game vs RCB

- Selection brainfart

- Bowling changes messed up.

- Hiding behind instead of leading from the front while batting. Flop show with bat.
