From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of all cricketers who have captained Indian national cricket team at the international level. The list includes all Indian captains of men's, women's and youth cricket. India became a full member of the Imperial Cricket Conference (now the International Cricket Council) on 31 May 1926. On 25 June 1932 it became the Test nation after England, Australia, South Africa, the West Indies and New Zealand when they took on England at Lord's. They played only seven tests, which were all against England, before the Second World War, losing five matches and drawing twice. Their first game against other opposition came in 1947–49 when they played Australia.

The Indian team's greatest successes came in 1983, when they won the Cricket World Cup under the captaincy of Kapil Dev, and 2011, when they won the world cup again under Mahendra Singh Dhoni. India came runner-up in World Cup 2003 under Sourav Ganguly who has the record of most number of Indian test wins (11) under his leadership in overseas. Also, they won the Under-19 World Cup three times under the captaincy of Mohammad Kaif in 2000, 2008 under Virat Kohli and in 2012 under Unmukt Chand . Also, under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India won the inaugural ICC T20 World Cup. The record of most number of Indian test wins (26) currently held under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Mithali Raj led India to its best result in Women's ODI cricket when the team advanced to the finals of the 2005 Women's Cricket World Cup. Raj is also one of the three women's captains who have led their side to a victory in women's Test cricket, the others being Shantha Rangaswamy and Mamatha Maben.
