Q.

If you are asked to list three most favourite Indian cricket captains, who will be they? Please arrange the names in order of merit ( 1 for the most favourite), 2 for the second most favourite etc,) assigning suitable reasons. You need not stop at 3. You may go on and on. But give reasons for the positions of the names.

Have not seen MAK Pataudi....but starting 4m the days of SM Gavaskar, who happens to be my most favourite Indian Cricketer....I would like to select Four instead of three in order of their merit keeping in mind during which period they were entrusted wid the job....1) Kapil Dev.....one of the hard earned achiver in the game and had a big heart to lead 4m the front....shown the value of filding including the art of fast bowling..2) Ganguly: For handling so nicely the pressure of being a part of the greatest trio ,SRS. 3) SM Gavaskar: One of the intelligent captain who was respected by its team mates, daring enough to accep defeats wid dignity and bringing B n H cup to the nation....4) Dhoni: A cool guy , competent enough to lead a side wid immense talent and can change the game in team's favour at any . Credit goes to him , bcoz he has to lead a side in a period where he is controlling all the three version of the game.
