5 Best International cricket captains

Captaincy is one key aspect of the game on which a lot depends. If your captain is performing as a leader and as a player, it automatically makes a team look good. At the international level, leading from the front becomes all the more important. Without further to talk, let's jump into Indiafantasy's pick of the 5 Best International cricket captains:

1. Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan has revolutionised his batting over the years, but when he retires he would be the most celebrated captain of the English side ever. And, the reason is the fact that he led England to their first World cup trophy. Since his appointment to full-time captaincy in limited-overs cricket, he has helped England transform their game and become probably the best ODI team in the world. He has led England in 114 ODI matches, with 69 wins. In the 46 T20I matches in which he captained England, the side managed to be on the winning side 25 times. For a country, which he hadn't been on top with their white-ball game, Morgan has inspired a generation of young cricketers to come and play with freedom.

2. Kane Williamson

The world already knew what a special talent Kane Williamson was with the bat, but since he has been handed over the reign after Brendon McCullum's retirement, he has been spot on with his leadership skills. Williamson, who is one of the best batsmen in the world right now, has led 77 ODI matches, winning 41 of them. Under his captaincy, New Zealand has become one of the best Test teams and hold the no.2 spot in the Test rankings currently. In 32 Tests that he has led, the Kiwis have won 18. In T20Is, New Zealand has won 19 matches out the 42 games in which he has led.

3. Virat Kohli

62 wins from 89 ODI matches, with a win percentage of 72. Virat Kohli‘s record as a captain speaks for itself. Even in red-ball cricket, Kohli has helped India transform into the best Test team in the world. Winning 33 of his 55 Test matches as captain, he is the most successful Test captain the country has had. Even as a T20I captain, he has flourished a lot, winning 22 of his 37 matches. All these stats are enough to justify why Kohli is one of the best captains in international cricket right now and he could well become one of the most successful captains in the history of the game.
