Then others. No one can even come close. Putting others name in the same thread is injustice to his legacy.

How can steve waugh, ricky ponting, clive lloyd all these captains be added with imran khan? this is big insult to the great imran khan. You need to understand the aura imran khan had, the fear and depression graham gooch got during finals of 1992 when the great imran came out with t shirt of tiger. It could only be natural leader like him who brought the fear factor in opposition's mind & played great cricket. Truly an all time great in my & harsh's book. :hatsoff:

Majid khan the shapeshifter.

 

In 75-79 Majid khan lifted world cup as clive llyod then he lifted as Kapil Dev , infact india had no chance when they were struggling for 17/5 against zimb. Majid khan stepped in as Kapil dev and made 175. Similarly he won as border , imran , arjuna and so on.

Ranatunga by far. 

there is an aspect called leading from the front which is the most important for a captain... Ranatunga was ok in that regard in 1996 , but Kapil was literally  towering  in that  aspect in 83 . Bat avg: of 60.6 str: of 108.99 .Bowl stats of 20.41, 2.91.To add to that his fielding and captaincy.

Leave Imran Khan alone please. Imran is not in same league as other captains. They were much better then him as captain apart from Clarke maybe.

Only in India, for rest of the cricket world, Imran Khan was the best ever captain and one of the top five cricketers ever to play the game.

Er. Nobody considers Imran the best ever captain . They consider him one of the greatest allrounders and a fine leader but tactically - not particularly great.
