If I was a betting man. Though even without a coconspirator Fred's right. If it's a plot it's way beyond steve's mental acuity despite being relatively simple.

Decent article, as always from Geeves.

However horrie's assertion that Smith is the worst captain since Craig is laughable when you consider the likes of Yallop and Hughes.

Yallop and Hughes had crap teams. This one is not. Seasick has presided over a loss to the Bangles and a series loss to SL. He seems void of leadership skills and the gcspoc has more acumen. Tho I am not a Snifty fan, Seasick was 'apparently' instrumental inn his sacking as well.

I have to agree with Horrie on this one. Great batsman but very average captain.

Who can bat anywhere and if he were a decent leader would bat where he was most needed.

Really?

Apart from Smith, Warner, Starc and Lyon (and maybe Purple) the rest are indeed crap in comparison to our teams of the past 25 years. We are struggling to find an opener, a no. 3/4 (depending on where Smith bats), a 5 and 6, a keeper and maybe a 3rd quick who can stay fit.

We are at our lowest rank (5th) in many, many moons. We ARE crap.

Certainly compared to Waugh, ponting and sook he's not particularly blessed. He's still a crap captain.

He doesn't want Maxwell in the team so he can't be all bad.

It was the influential Weed who x's out No Show.

While he is divisive, Weed is a successful captain, at Shield level.

Wrench and Sneaky Pete are good standard Test players that I'd add to Skully's list. I'd delete gcspoc from the list of decent players - outside Oz

Word.

I didn't refute Smith's captaincy deficiencies, merely his ranking by horrie.

Yallop was the weakest man to ever take the helm of the Aus cricket side. Who can forget Kim Hughes shielding the cat from Bob Willis at Headingley. And he was scared shitless of Rodney Hogg, who did whatever he wanted when Yallop was skipper.

No, he was so shit in one, he was punted forever more.

Smiffy hasn't lost two Ashes series. He hasn't even been captain in an Ashes series. Are you referring to Punter?

Aus captaincy records

Based on this table, for all Aus captains with more than 3 games at the helm, the worst were Yallop and Hughes, with a shitty 14% victory record. Tweek's 50% is outstanding by comparison.

Of course, the greatest is the mighty Tugga, who won 72% of the 57 Tests he was in charge (that's basically winning 3 of every 4 Tests as skipper). What a ferkin legend. Stick that up your arse, h. Cool
