Top 5 Captains in T20 World Cup 2022

The captain is primarily responsible for the team’s success since he or she helps the squad perform at its best. On a big stage like the T20 World Cup 2022, the captain’s responsibility to organise and execute increases by 200% as one wrong in a quick-paced can alter the whole match’s result. Let’s look at the Top 5 Captains in T20 World Cup 2022:

5. Dasun Shanaka

One of Sri Lanka’s most effective recent leaders is Dasun Shanaka. After more than three years of playing the musical chair of captaincy, Sri Lanka has finally decided on Dasun as its flag-bearer. Shanaka is a good role model. He is also Sri Lanka’s most significant player. Shanaka gives the team the much-needed balance. He bowls during the power play and has elite finishing skills. Overall, Shanaka is an entire package.

When everyone was anticipating whether India or Pakistan may win the Asia Cup title. He silently led the Lankan side to a memorable Asia Cup victory last month.

In 34 games he handled the responsibility of the captaining the Lankan side. The team has won 17 off them while lost 17. His win percentage of 50% added with Asia Cup confidence is enough to see him as one of the best captains in the T20 World Cup 2022.

4. Kane Williamson

Many people had predicted that the Test specialists wouldn’t be able to survive in these circumstances of the shortest format of the game, as he don’t have that kind of ball-striking skills that meet T20I norms. They were mistaken, though! Kane Williamson has been quite successful in the game’s shortest format, which has silenced his critics.

And as expected the Black-Caps will be led by Kane Williamson this time too. This demonstrates the management of the NZC’s confidence and faith in Kane Williamson. Kane can easily advance the New Zealand team to the semifinals. They participated in the previous final and are eager to hold the trophy this time.

Williamson has so far led team New Zealand in 61 games, and a win percentage of 50.82 is on his side, and that’s the reason the Blackcaps are one of the favourites to win the title this time.

3. Aaron Finch

Finch is one of Australia’s most well-known figures thanks to his achievements on the field. Finch is regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world of cricket and is highly valued for his batting. In 2021, Aaron Finch led Australia to their first-ever T20 World Cup victory, and he will be aiming to make history at the 2022 marquee event too. The seasoned batter has delivered flawlessly as per the expectations that the Australian captain will provide his squad powerful starts.

In terms of captaincy, he has so far captained Australia in 71 games. Under his captaincy, the Australian team has lost 30 games while winning 39 of them. Given that Australia competes in challenging circumstances and against great opposition, a win percentage of 54.05% is respectable.

2. Babar Azam

In the game’s shortest format from 2007 to 2010, Pakistan was a dominant force. They had some prominent players in their lineup at the time, and they won the 2009 T20 World Cup. Their success may be gauged by the fact that they advanced to both the semifinals and finals of the 2010 T20 World Cup and the inaugural 2007 T20 World Cup, respectively. The departure of certain notable players after 2010 had an impact on the team’s performance.

However, since the management handed over the captaincy to Babar Azam, the team is playing more confident and showing an eager to win.

Azam is the best fit for Pakistan at this point of time. Pakistan is one of the top challengers for the trophy if they can improve their middle-order batting. Babar is aware of his bowling adjustments quite well. He is aware of which overs Haris Rauf will bowl and which ones Shaheen will.

His win percentage of 60.71 is enough to impress everyone.

1. Rohit Sharma 

In terms of statistics and player ability, India has one of the finest captains. One is aware of Rohit’s bat skills on his good days. He is capable of ending the game by himself. He is a player that excels in big games and knows how to handle pressure. You don’t come across players that have won five IPL titles every day. He is well aware of which players are his marquee and essential players as well as which bowlers will be his wicket-takers. To see if he can lead India to victory this time will be fantastic.

He took over the full charge of the Indian team after Virat Kohli stepped down from the captaincy last year. The Indian captain holds the unimageniary 77.78% winning percentage which is the best of all. Under Rohit India won 35 games out of 45.
