Lets take a look at all the Cricket World Cup
Winners Captains list and their hard work which
made their nation proud Clive Lloyd (1975
Image Source The man from Guyana led the West
Indies to two back to back World Cups in the
first two editions of the tournament. He had a
team which every captain dreams of as they were
the fiercest team back in 70s and 80s. But every
ship needs a captain and to this Caribbean ship,
Clive Hubert Lloyd was the captain. He had a
major contribution in the 1975 World
Cup final against Australia as Caribbeans were
down to 50-3, then came the skipper and smashed
an 85 ball 105 which took them to a huge score of
291-8. In reply, Aussies started decently, but
Lloyd controlled well with the ball with the
figures of 1-38 in 12 overs which helped West
Indies win the match by 17 runs. The 1979 World
Cup was played with the West Indies as favorites
and they carried their supremacy all over the
tournament. The combined contribution of all the
players led to the second consecutive World Cup
for Lloyd and his team. Kapil Dev (1983)
Team India were the underdogs when they started
their World Cup campaign in 1983. Kapil Dev was
the captain in the tournament. Little did
everyone know the man from Chandigarh is
destined to lift the trophy at Lords. The
heroics of Kapil Dev as a batsman is witnessed
in the match against Zimbabwewhen India was in
deep trouble with the score of 17-5. Then the
captain arrived and scored a blistering 175 not
out which controlled the innings and gave India
the best chance to seal victory. But West
Indieswere again tagged as the favorites. They
have reached to the finals for the third
consecutive time and India for the first
time. India was batting first and got all out
for a mere 183. Everybody thought its a cakewalk
for the Windies and Viv Richards absolutely
makes it so. But one catch has changed the
course of the match where Kapil Dev ran towards
boundary from the circle almost covering 40
yards to take a fantastic catch that got rid of
Viv Richards. The team collapsed after his
dismissal and India won the 1983 World Cup by
defeating the mighty West Indies by 43
runs. Alan Border (1987)
Before coming to India in the world cup along
with his team Border has been facing lots of
upsets and downs as some senior players were
retired and had a young world cup squad which is
not predictable. India and Pakistan were the hot
favorites, but destiny has its own plans. The
arch rivals Australia and England were facing
each other in the finals. Though he hadnt had a
great world cup, but a brilliant master stroke in
the finals made Aussies World Champions for the
first time. England seemed to chase the target of
254 very easily, but Alan Border brought himself
into the attack which was very unusual as he was
a part time spinner. But Borders decision
turned out as gold and he got the inform batsman
Mike Gatting out which resulted in the eventual
fall of Englands innings. As a result, Australia
won by 7 runs and became the third team to win
the world cup. Imran Khan (1992)
The name Imran Khan every Pakistani remembers. He
is the best captain and all- rounder Pakistan
has ever produced. The only time Pakistan tasted
the World cup triumph
is in 1992 in down under led by Imran Khan. He
was known for his motivational skills and
speeches provided to his teammates. He called his
team cornered tigers but they performed like
roaring tigers. Experts believed that Pakistan
wouldnt have won the World Cup if Imran
wouldnt be the captain or wouldnt be a part of
the team. He was playing more as a proper
batsman rather than a bowler. He scored a
fascinating 37 ball 60 to help Pakistan win over
New Zealand in semi-finals. Again in finals,
against England he top scored with 72 runs,
which took Pakistan to 249 and their bowlers did
a tremendous job to all out England for
227. Arjuna Ranatunga (1996)
Rightly said, Big players perform in big matches.
Arjuna Ranatunga, the man who was a centurion in
the night of the finals against Australia in
Lahore 1996 is always remembered as one of the
aggressive captains cricket has ever produced. He
made a team which was unbeatable and can defeat
any opponent any day. The team had aggressive
batsman, smart fielders and excellent bowlers
which collectively helped them in the course of
their world cup triumph. Arjuna Ranatunga was an
inspirational and strategic captain where he gave
full license to the openers to smash the bowlers
and he made excellent partnerships with middle
order batsman to give justice to the platform
provided by the openers. The Sri Lanka made a
fest of a run chase against Australia and won the
finals comprehensively. Steve Waugh (1999)
Steve Waugh was the then new captain of the
Australian team, which went to England looking
to win for the second time. Though Australia
didnt start well in the tournament initially as
they lost first three matches. But there was no
looking back as the tournament progressed. Steve
Waugh was the Australias best batsman in that
World Cup. He played the innings of the
tournament against South Africa in a Super six
stage match as he scored 120 off 110 to engineer
the chase of 272 which was remarkable in every
way. Then again, they faced South Africa in the
semi-finals where he scored 56 to reach
Australia a respectable total of 213. The match
was tie, but Australia was through to the finals
as they have beaten them in the super six stage.
In the finals, they demolished Pakistan for 132
and won comprehensively. Ricky Ponting (2003
The golden era of Australia has started with the
99 world cup win. Years later when Steve Waugh
quit the limited overs cricket, Ricky Ponting was
appointed as the captain of the dominant
Australian team. He has two consecutive World
Cups in his name where his side never lost a
single match in any of the two world cups. The
decade was theirs. They were simply unbeatable
in that era, so is the Pontings captaincy. In
2003, Australia was playing the final against
India, which was a promising side too, but the
Aussies were too much better of the Indians and
there was never a moment where India had hopes
of winning. The skipper made a meal of Indian
bowling attack and scored fascinating 140 runs in
121 balls which helped Australia to post a
mammoth total of 359 in 50 overs. Australia has
won the match by 125 runs and lifted the
trophy second consecutive time and overall third
time. The history repeated in 2007 as well. They
have made a habit of winning and didnt lose a
single match and won all the matches
comprehensively. They made a hat trick of World
Cups and a 4th time winner. Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Little did they know the man from Ranchi will one
day lead India to lift the World Cup and give
Indians the beautiful moments to cherish. And
little did they know that a small town boy is
going to become Indias most successful captain.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the man behind the team
Indias success is one of the finest cricketer
the world has ever produced. India, Sri Lanka
and Bangladesh were hosting the World Cup in 2011
which gave a belief to all Indian fans to win
the title for the second time after 28 years.
Dhoni structured the team for the World Cup from
past 4 years and made a brilliant team. Though
India lost to South Africa and the match was tied
with England, but the belief was always there of
winning the title. The team has done justice to
the belief of their fans by winning each and
every match. Yuvraj Singhwas playing like never
before. He was contributing with bat, ball and
also in the field. The concern was Dhonis bad
form as he was not in a great touch.
India defeated Pakistan in the historic
semi-finals to reach finals playing against
another neighbors Sri Lanka. Latter had won the
toss and elected to bat where they scored a
blistering 274. In reply, India lost their
superior openers early which opened the match
fully for the Lankans. But Dhoni had other
plans. He decided to bat on No.5 which is a
cemented position of the inform batsman Yuvraj
Singh. This was a gamble to take on the spinners.
With the company of Gautam Gambhir, who made a
fabulous 97 runs and also with Yuvraj Singh
later, Dhoni scored match winning 91 off 78
balls. Dhonis winning six over long on remained
as one of the greatest moment in Indian cricket
history. Michael Clarke (2015)
Michael Clarke announced his retirement by
stating the latest world cup match will be his
last match of his career. It was a dream coming
true for Michael Clarke as he signed off with
winning the title for his country at his own
backyard. Until before the World Cup, Australian
cricket was facing the transition stage where all
senior players left and the captain was finding
difficulty to win matches with the new team. But
they looked different in the World cup as they
dominated almost all the matches they played. The
collective performances of all the 15 members
made possible of lifting the world cup for record
5thtime and bid the greatest farewell to their
skipper, more info please visit our website.
