Kumble appointed India Test captain

Linky

Good choice?

Bad Choice?

Personally I would have gone with Ganguly for the 2 tests against the pakis and with Dhoni being the vice captain.

Serves couple of purposes:

1. SCG fails and does not get picked for the Aus series for TESTS
2. Dhoni gains a learning curve for TEST captaincy, and an experienced captain is paramount in Australia

I do not know if Kumble has ever captained in any form of the game?

First class me Kumble ne kiya hai captaincy.
Actually,appointing Kumble is not as good a decision as not to burden Dhobi with captaincy.Dhoni would have been finished had he toured down under as Indian captain in all three formats of the game.Now Kumble can play for at most a year and that will mean end of near future away tours for Indian team.After that Dhoni will be appointed captain for home matches which will allow him to learn the finer details of captaincy and also make a mistake or two and not suffer that much.
I think selectors have put forward a masterstroke here.

Re: Kumble appointed India Test captain

I am glad Anilbhai, one of the most loyal, humble and talented cricketers to have played for India, finally got this opportunity. I believe he's fully competent for this job, and wish him all the best

Re: Kumble appointed India Test captain

Kumble definitely has cricketing brain. What remains to be seen is how he handles pressure. Indias captaincy is one of the toughest job in sporting world. Good luck to JUMBO !

Being loyal, humble and talented are no qualifiers for captaincy. Captain's are leaders, they are the ones who lead by examples.

Look at Graeme Smith or Ricky Ponting for that matter.

I hope Kumble does well but is this in the long term interests of the team?

BOhat late hua, par bohat achchaa hua.........

Actually Anil is one of those rare species who are "down-to-earth silent performers", so he is getting this opportunity out of no choice rather that merit, that's sad
