A captain holds the team together. He is the most important player who is supposed to make the cogs of the team to mesh together. He is too be a mentor to youngsters and a warrior in the field. Youngsters should confide in him with confidence while other players should respect his judgment and decisions. The captain leads the team and he must lead from the front. The skipper is definitely more important than the coach or manager. Yes more important.
At the end of the day it must be the captain who decides and not the coach.
I totally agree with Glenn Mc.Grath, "I am not sure why he (Buchanan) has come up with this idea. I have played under him for a long time and he had a lot of such theories, maybe this is another. I think what he meant was that there should be one captain while other players should help him in decision making," said the 39-year-old Australian. McGrath said that being a good captain was a tough job and his success depends on the team. "I feel senior players in the team should know their role and come forward and help the captain in decision making. But at the end of the day their should be one leader on the field and he should be accountable for all the decisions," he said. And how right he is.
Shane Warne couldn't get along with the former Aussie coach for anything. He called his ideas crazy, but now only do I find the truth of Mr.Buchanan.
Why does Ganguly always have such a hard time with the Aussies?
But what choices for skippers of the Kolkata Knight Riders!!!
Chris Gayles is one of Buchanan's captain. I and probably the whole world finds Gayle's captaining weird and senseless much like the Australian's theory. I find him misfit to be the captain of the West Indies team.
And now Bengal captain Laxmi Ratan Shukla will lead the Kolkata Knight Riders in their first practice match in South Africa. Isn't this a little too much??
Sunny was probably right in critizing such a stupid theory. But as Shah Rukh Khan replied,"If some people have problems with it, they should buy a team and run it the way they want.” So anyone willing to lend me some money, I need to buy this team before cricket is spoilt with child's play and illogical theories.
As the proverb goes, 'Too many Chefs spoil the broth'.
And I conclude asking, "Will the Real Captain Stand up?"
