After first round.


Iyer : Impressed. Kept pressure throughout and got best out of Umesh

Pant : Handled Kuldeep and Khaleel well. Winning against MI with just 2 OS is not easy.

Samson : Has best bowling at his disposal. Good move to come at 3. Will be interesting how he solves no. 6-7 issue.

Hardik. Another good attack,started great but let them off the the hook a bit.

Mayank : Couldn't do much with such an attack. Though kept morale high and led from front

Jadeja : Looked nervous with bat. Didnt even captain while bowling.

Rahul : Worst.Converted a win into a loss

Pandya - Ghatiya captaincy, no idea of how to use your best bowlers, was asking Shami to bowl 4 overs on the trot before getting mocked. 


Kl Rahul- Ye UP ko le doobega, iski to baat hi nahi karni mujhe. 


Jaddu - already 33 yrs old. Nothing to look here. 


Sanju Samson - Pehle team mai to aa jao beta. 


Mayank - Same as above 



Pant, Iyer are the only two who are looking set for captaincy, but I don't want Pant to become a predictable player after taking over captaincy, so I"ll be wary of taking that step.

Real captain is probably only Sir Don Pandya. Also like to see an AR as captain 


DC and KKR are “match up” and coach driven teams, where the captains (Pant and S Iyer respectively) are usually implementing strategies dished out by the TM


Samson is in his 3rd season so would have improved … Agarwal can be interesting (but there can be Kumble factor in PK)


KL of course is losing favor so will have to work hard. He has GG by his side to learn from … Jadeja will be in the shadows of Dhoni

For me only Pant & Bhumra look the best bet.  Plus both are 100% certainities in team. 

Bhumra a smart thinking cricketer - comes up with a plan very quickly once he assesses the conditions. These types will make good captaincy material. 

Pant - Hope is that he may change the minsdet of the team towards aggressive play which India need most in Short format.

Why did Punjab made him the captain? Shikhar would've been a good option.

Shikhar looked poor in SL too.


They needed to buy a captain with the budget they had. Faf,Warner went cheap. Even Iyer could've been bought instead of wasting it on Livingstone
