Indian cricket team captains like Sourav Ganguly, Kapil Dev, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have been instrumental in making the team one of the best in the world. Under their captaincy, India won numerous games and they rose to fame worldwide for their great cricket skills as well as leadership.
Sourav Ganguly is arguably the greatest ever left-handed batsmen to play for India in ODIs. He was a great match-winner and was considered to be one of the best ODI batsmen of his era. Ganguly as a captain, always lead team India by example. He always used his cricketing brains to make the perfect bowling changes and get the work done.

India’s maiden World Cup in 1983 was under Kapil Dev’s captaincy. His great leadership and support to the team made him a successful captain who brought glory to the country.
Another great captain that led the Indian cricket team was none other than Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He is the only captain in the world of cricket to win all three ICC trophies.
