Poor Captaincy: Tendulkar, Lara & Flintoff Cricket Career

Cricket is a game in which two different teams will perform in a stadium. Both sides are handled by coaches (outside the field) and captain (inside the ground). Many extraordinary players of cricket that perform well in their innings but show a poor captaincy.

The captain plays a significant role in the stadium, and all the players of the team play under his supervision. A captain must be physically and mentally strong that he would control the club properly. If we look at some previous years, we will find great captain including, MS Dhoni, Ricky Ponting, Graeme Smith & Sourav Ganguly.

Three extraordinary players do not serve as a good captain:

Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin is a top batsman of Indian teams and scored several centuries, including different records. But when he leads the Indian team as a captain, out of 25 test matches, only four games have won by India. Under Tendulkar’s supervision, India had won 23 ODI matches out of 73, so he decided to leave the captaincy on his unsatisfactory progress.

Brian Lara

Lara is also a great batsman of the 90s and serves for West Indies. Always a gossip started among cricket fans that who is best Tendulkar or Lara. They both have an excellent cricket career and one more common thing that poor captaincy. Lara carrier as a captain plays 47 test matches and wins only ten games while in ODI WI won only 50 games out of 125 Match.

Andrew Flintoff

Flintoff represented the England cricket team as an all-rounder and considered one of the best players in his time. He performed well in different cricket events, such as Ashes in 2005 & 2009, to improve his team’s ranking. But he has a short captain career in which he leads 2 test matches out of 11 and an ODI series against India in 2006 and won only one game out of 5.
