The most successful captains in Indian cricket history

Cricket is the most popular sport in India and is enjoyed by over a billion people in the country. It is seen as a carnival in India, with big matches leading to company holidays, deserted streets and closed shops. Indian cricketers are no less than celebrities.

However, cricket is still a sport like any other and players must play to maintain goodwill in the eyes of the public. Cricket is a team sport consisting of two teams of 11 players each, including the captain.

The captain leads the team throughout the game and makes all the important decisions such as pitch layout, pitcher selection and scouting. A good captain can lead a weak team to victory, while a bad captain can squander the potential of the most talented players.

Therefore, the role of captain in cricket is very important and the management pays great attention to choosing the right captain for the team. Several players have served as captains of the Indian men’s cricket team over the years. Some lead national teams in all categories: one-day internationals, Tests and Twenty20, while others share the captaincy with their peers.

Today we are going to take a look at the most successful captain in Indian cricket history. From MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli to Kapil Dev, who is the best cricket captain in India? Find out here.

Since the retirement of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan have commanded the men’s cricket team.
