India should have different captains for different formats.

Verdict

Having different captains for different formats of the game does seem like a good idea looking at Indiaís performance in recent series. Dhoni maybe the captain who won the World Cup for us but burnout can blunt even the best minds. A fresh approach from a new captain will help the team in the long run. The idea of different captains has worked for teams like England and Australia, and might bring about a change in the Indian teamís performances.

“ Different captains will have a fresher outlook ”
“ MS should continue as the man for all formats ”
Dhiraj Salian: Dhoni has lost the midas touch which seemed to back him in the early part of his captaincy. Now he just looks jaded and easily lets a match drift away when he should be attacking to regain control.

The Test series loss to England at home should act as a wake-up call to the board, that it is high time to have different captains for different formats. A new captain will bring a fresher approach in the respective format to the team which will benefit in gaining long term goals.
Monish Moorthy: Dhoni was the captain during recent home and away series losses but he is still one man out of eleven who has to make the best of the team available to him.

The highs under Dhoni canít be forgotten, he has taken India to big triumphs. It is just a matter of one match or a series where he can turn the fortunes for India and the talk of having different captains will vanish after a good show.

Dhoni is not god
14 Mar 2013
yes i agree
13 Mar 2013
should BCCI send thier domestic player in county and other country domestic tournament?
13 Mar 2013
each format specialist required!!
13 Mar 2013
Yes i think so too
13 Mar 2013
if india have different captains there will bno problem if one is injured in any format like if dhonis injured in test and if kohlis the cptian then also he can lead d side but nt dat our captain is injured and making some rubbish answers for senseless defeats..!
13 Mar 2013
i think this rotation policy can work for dhoni he can play his natural game
13 Mar 2013
No competition for dhoni
12 Mar 2013
dhoni should take a time out
12 Mar 2013
shud go with gayle and pujara as openers
11 Mar 2013
Captain in all formats its workload for Dhoni!
11 Mar 2013
Dhoni is full of dirty politics
11 Mar 2013
yes,new captains have more ideas ,but less experience but even he can manage and lead his team to glory,but 2 wins against Aussies doesn't make any difference in dohni
11 Mar 2013
People are saying that under dhoni's captaincy INDIA won 2 world cups so he should be given chances. Country comes first before players. If some one doesn't perform well he should be dropped from the side. The player should take it positive and develop himself. Because in INDIA there are so many talented players. If the same person gets chances again and again for his past history, When will other players get chance? If people had thought ganguly should be given chance for his past in 2006-2007, today we wouldn't have known who Dhoni is.
10 Mar 2013
The Test series loss to England
10 Mar 2013
we have to think about future ... Dhoni is not capable for next world cup
10 Mar 2013
Absolutely correct. So, that INDIA will have back up captain in case if DHONI gets injured. Now there is a situation in team that Dhoni should play matches atleast for captaincy. Even if he doesn't performing well. Also future team will be strong if given chances to players like KOHLI.
10 Mar 2013
cool
09 Mar 2013
Dhoni is not good captain
09 Mar 2013
i totally agree with
08 Mar 2013
he deserves it
08 Mar 2013
is time for VIRAT to be caption
07 Mar 2013
dhoni needs a rest give the captaincy to viru or gauti
07 Mar 2013
"dhoni not a good test captian"
06 Mar 2013
needed
06 Mar 2013
young blood needed to rejuvinate the team
06 Mar 2013
A single person cant be expected to handle all the 3 wide varities of the game. The test captain should be more of cool minded guy who can think of long term strategies. whereas odi n t20 captain should be a more aggressive guy n should think on the move. A small decision by the caption might change the whole game.
05 Mar 2013
VIRAT FOR T20, DHONI SHOULD LEAD INDIA IN ODI AND TESTS
05 Mar 2013
different captians will have differetn tatics so it will be tough for opposition to understand that
05 Mar 2013
we need new talent
05 Mar 2013
looking into the future we should ready a candidate as new captain starting with captaincy in t20
05 Mar 2013
i hate dhoni
04 Mar 2013
the reason behind this vote is because new talents hav the oppurtunity to fit in dhoni's shoes so its better to have diff captains for different for experience....
04 Mar 2013
he should be
04 Mar 2013
viru or gauti can captain the test squad
04 Mar 2013
Surely..people having the same strategy for all the three formats is no longer good
03 Mar 2013
IT will reduce stress of Dhoni
03 Mar 2013
It will reduce the stress of Dhoni and give some time for new captain to learn the things to take full charge of time
03 Mar 2013
Dhoni's an amazing person and an even better captain. But we all know he cant captain our team forever. So, he should keep captaining like the ODI's and Test's, while a younger guy, like Virat, should start captaining the T20 side. :)
03 Mar 2013
Dhoni is worst captain ever in Indian cricket. So anything against Dhoni, I'm IN...
02 Mar 2013
need new face :)
02 Mar 2013
dhoni should opt out for sometime
01 Mar 2013
Dhoni should step down
01 Mar 2013
he should all time
01 Mar 2013
TEST- MS DHONI ODI- VIRAT KOHLI T20- SURESH RAINA
01 Mar 2013
i think a youngster like kohli shud me made as a captain for t20 format so that he wud get experience to lead india in other formats in future
01 Mar 2013
i think being captain in all the formats wud be stress to captain so i think india shud have different captains like england or south africa
01 Mar 2013
Yup ms has toooooo much burden ryt now certainly it wont help for team India......
28 Feb 2013
Dhoni does not fit for Test matches, People says that he had played very well in recent test match but what about previous 20-30 matches??
28 Feb 2013
msd needs to take a breather
28 Feb 2013
DHONI HAVING HEAVY DUTY IN HIS SOLDER AT LEAST FOR T-20 WE NEED ANOTHER CAPTAIN THAT IS ONLY OPTION KOHILI
28 Feb 2013
we want kohli as odi captain
28 Feb 2013
we dont need dhoni
28 Feb 2013
we want virat ...
27 Feb 2013
Virat Should lead in Tests. Dhoni should be in ODI and T20s..
27 Feb 2013
We can test other players captaincy skills also . Why can't Dhoni take a rest.
27 Feb 2013
MSD is too defensive IND need Agreesive captain like Ganguli
27 Feb 2013
Dhoni Is Test Captin..Odis Gambair , T20 Kohli ...this is good
27 Feb 2013
It will give bit of rest to Dhoni and chance to younger wicketkeepers like Gautam and Ojha to be part of the team.
27 Feb 2013
virat must be given a chance to prove himself .all the other countries have implemented this and are successful then why cant india do that.atleast we must try this idea
27 Feb 2013
Yes,I think Virat Kohli should lead India in the T20's ..As he was termed as the future captain of the National team and just to reduce the burden on Dhoni
27 Feb 2013
reduce pressure on captain
27 Feb 2013
Yes I am Agree
27 Feb 2013
Dhoni In Test Gambhir/Shewag In ODI Virat in T20
27 Feb 2013
Dhoni should step back from captaincy .. he is full of dirty politics
27 Feb 2013
sehwag for tests dhoni for odi and t20
27 Feb 2013
I think Raina fits for t20 team captaincy and Kohli fits for one day and test captaincy..
26 Feb 2013
VK is the deserving man
26 Feb 2013
dhoni is to be removed from all formats
26 Feb 2013
we hav to change d captaincy in t20 ........dhoni as a captain had very less success in t20's since 2007 wc....change is a must....hpe it happens..virat is a nice option..
26 Feb 2013
26 Feb 2013
as a player dhoni is incredible but as a captain there's so much pressure on him. different captains should be appointed to give dhoni time to refresh
26 Feb 2013
Yes release dhoni s pressure
25 Feb 2013
it is important for all round development of the team
25 Feb 2013
we should give opportunities for other players and see
24 Feb 2013
Dhoni mostly takes csk players in the team.As He took Murali Vijay In the 1 test against aus.Virat kohli should be d captain for odi and t20
24 Feb 2013
Dhoni dosent use players well expect CSK players ... he is full of politics
24 Feb 2013
it'll be interesting for both players and fans to watch the matches
24 Feb 2013
Yeah Virat should be Captain for ODI and T20
24 Feb 2013
From future point of view,making youngsters lead the side in formats like t20 will develop captaincy skills,and will also be a respite for Dhoni be responsible for the team in all 3 formats..Feel Dhoni can lead in tests and odi's(Very good odi captain and lack of captaincy material for tests)
24 Feb 2013
Yeah...!!! Different players will have different strategies for different formats
24 Feb 2013
i ll vote for dhiraj alian
23 Feb 2013
dhoni continues as a odi captain but in other format he should plays as a player.
22 Feb 2013
its best when we have virat for t20 and odi and msd for tests k i knw under msd we have achieved a lot but cricket is a team game so all have contributed so y nly for msd remember he is sole responsibility for a disrespectful retirements of some of senior players he who told juniours r better than seniors so he should be sacked if possible frm the team itself
22 Feb 2013
yes
22 Feb 2013
dhoni will become too old during 2015 wc
22 Feb 2013
dhoni should move away from test captaincy
22 Feb 2013
No . India should try that and give confidence to dhoni till 2015 world cup
22 Feb 2013
use less dhoni is no more use any way
22 Feb 2013
Different captains
21 Feb 2013
correct!dhoni has become a useless captain losing tag of 'captain cool'he should step down of t20 captaincy,then some burden will come off.
21 Feb 2013
Different Catains for different formats will reduce the pressure on the shoulders of the captain.
21 Feb 2013
GUD
21 Feb 2013
Yes if only dhoni be captain than after dhoni there is no captain to take his place.
21 Feb 2013
Dhoni dosent look good in test both has captain and w.keeper
21 Feb 2013
Dhoni dosent look good in test both has captain and w.keeper
21 Feb 2013
Dhoni says he's tired.
20 Feb 2013
we need new leadership in tests but in shorter formats dhoni is still one of the best
20 Feb 2013
all the other countries do so why shouldn't india
20 Feb 2013
Yes if there is a same captain for all the formats the captain will be filled with pressure and tension and the captain will become stale.
20 Feb 2013
yes we need new captain ... cant see dhoni face
20 Feb 2013
DIFFERENT CAPTAINS FOR DIFFERENT FORMATS IS A GOOD IDEA FOR THE STRUGGLING INDIAN TEAM. IT IS SURE THAT IT WILL HAVE A FRESHER OUTLOOK. ON SEEING THE PRESENT FORM OF INDIAN PLAYERS, VIRAT KOHLI IS BEST TO LEAD THE TEAM IN TESTS AND ODI AND GAUTAM GAMBHIR IN T20
19 Feb 2013
3 captains for 3 formats is the NEED OF THE HOUR. Looking at the recent loses this will be more beneficial for the team. This seems the best solution for bringing back the lost glory.
19 Feb 2013
virat must be given a chance and i think he is capable for captaincy
19 Feb 2013
v kholi should be test captain
19 Feb 2013
d/f for only test matches
19 Feb 2013
i think kohli should take the t20 captaincy
19 Feb 2013
yea... we should try and reduce his workload..
19 Feb 2013
Yes they should have different captains MS is getting old and new captain is needed
19 Feb 2013
Virat kohli should be T20 captian
19 Feb 2013
different tacticals can give different ideas and can make india victory in a different styles.. there will no matter of stress to anyone individualy.
19 Feb 2013

I THINK DHONI IS BEST IN PRESENT CONDITION
11 Mar 2013

11 Mar 2013
After dhoni's retirement india should think about this not now
11 Mar 2013
dhoni is a caption cool so he maintain all the format .today to next world cup other player not playing consistent all format of cricket . gambhir not playing well in test and kohli is a aggressive player and othe option is not there and raina some time miss the opportunity.
11 Mar 2013
A Captain in all the formats have wider views,options and opinions.....
10 Mar 2013
If India have different captains in different format then player will play for their own record not for country
10 Mar 2013
Those about whom we think that they may be alternative of Dhoni both of them are out of playing 11
09 Mar 2013
i think dhoni should atleast be replaced for t20 by virat kholi
08 Mar 2013
yes
08 Mar 2013
dhoni for odi viru for test kohli for t20
08 Mar 2013

07 Mar 2013
Not required
07 Mar 2013
dhoni is doing great
07 Mar 2013
yes MS DHONI is doing well
06 Mar 2013
He is the who have the talent to do with all formats, then why we need to take risks... Let him do that for his cricket life time that would be better to keep the having one for the same instead of finding and changing optional one for always. We waited for this moment from long time. so let this captain available at least some time...
06 Mar 2013
Dhoni can handle
06 Mar 2013
dhoni is doing good so no need of any changes
05 Mar 2013
Not required
04 Mar 2013

03 Mar 2013
Dhoni wil have to captain for all format
03 Mar 2013
Dhoni is one of d most creative captains world has seen.
02 Mar 2013
MS Dhoni is the best for India right now.
02 Mar 2013
Definately MS Dhoni should continue, as he's been successful in all formats,as different captains creates confusions
02 Mar 2013
MS Dhoni is d berst ever captain India has produced, there is no doubt about it!! There is no question of another captain!!
01 Mar 2013
if india should have different captain at different formats it hamper the team performance
01 Mar 2013
I dont think it works... In my opinion it will lead to queries between each others... not a good idea... MSD is a tre leader... Still am a true RCBian, dont u mistake me fellow RCBians...
28 Feb 2013
Nope. He is doing a good job..
28 Feb 2013
No not required
28 Feb 2013
lossing 1-2 series we cannot change because, we should not forget that he had been the captain of 2 world cup which we have won and if a person has to b removed for loosinf few series then for every 6-7 months we have to change a captain
28 Feb 2013
when India won the world cup in 2011 dhoni was the best captain in the world .Then how come does he suddenly become incapable to lead India in 3 formats.India has performed badly in recent times but the whole blame should not be put on the captain.Why blame the captain when your top-order batsmen is not performing or ur new ball bowlers are not giving you wickets.Moreover India does not even have somebody to replace dhoni at the moment.Virat Kohli is too young and Gambhir is out of form.But India should look to groom Virat as a captain for the future but for the time being Dhoni should continue
27 Feb 2013
ms dhoni has succeeded many times in the past, but if the team is not in form , he is not responsible for that
27 Feb 2013
My only question is wats wrong with M.S.Dhoni?? Dats it!! Answer this and change the Captain as u wish!!
27 Feb 2013
Man with Consistancy should lead the team and its dhoni
27 Feb 2013
Now any one not deserve to replace dhoni as captain in any format
27 Feb 2013
he has brought many trophys to india and is captain cool
26 Feb 2013
dhoni deserve in all format
26 Feb 2013
Reduce pressure on dhoni atleast in T20
26 Feb 2013
dhoni's innings in the first test was mind-blowing and he is happy to lead the side so i think there is no pressure on him if he leads all the formats
26 Feb 2013
Dhoni is one of the most intelligent captain probably in the world he is doing good job perhaps the best job any captain had done in the past.he is the best captain india has got and is perfect for all formats so i think he should continue to remain as a captain for all formats
26 Feb 2013
those who think different captain in different format they should shut up their mouth after yesterday innings
25 Feb 2013
