If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever.
I don't need a captain's band to lead a team to victory.
I was sporty in high school. I played tennis and hockey, and was basketball captain. Then I went to university and stopped doing sport and started eating ice cream.
The hallmark of a great captain is the ability to win the toss, at the right time.
As a captain, I think it's important that the players really know who you are and what you stand for, what your beliefs are, and to be consistent in those if things are going good or things are going bad.
