There’s a likelihood captaincy will play a decisive part in two major Test series involving India, Australia and England in the next few months. That being the case, let’s look at recent leadership trends.
The best way to gauge captaincy when you’re following a game is to observe if the on-field tactics seem to have a logical pattern. If they do, there’s a fair chance the skipper is on the ball. If, however, his moves bear no relationship to what the batsmen are doing, or the game situation, it probably means the captain has either dozed off or is out of his depth.
