Your captaincy goes in line with your unorthodox persona which justifies your tactics as well. As far as team selection is concerned, every leader has vision and he prefers player accordingly and you are also no exception if you have done so.

That’s why you have gifted us players like Kohli, Rohit, Ashwin, Shami, Bhubneshwar Kumar, Dhawan and many more when you persisted with them for long time and in their slump. You were the leader who backed Yuvraj after his poor form in lead up to the 2011 World Cup and then what he did hardly needs any mention.

These are the strong reasons why you are epitomized and worshipped as the greatest Indian skipper. (continued in next page..)
