Hello Friends This thought came to my mind and i thought i should discuss it here. In soccer Captains wear armband on his shoulder.. Don't you think in cricket there should be something like this. I mean captain should get some different identity from other team members just like football. What are your thoughts on it ??

Hi akp Of the few matches that I have watched and read about this world cup, I think the captains have already made themselves stand apart - Ponting fighting with his team mate over a catch on field, Dhoni - upset about finding bowlers and fielders and my favorite of the season - Afridi - He has his own style on field and looks impressive... But, yes, I think that would be a good suggestion... I noted it down and maybe next time when you and I are in charge of framing the guidelines we would do that - remember we are going to ICC presentation of the Trophy in case there is a tie at the finals - we would be there to decide who keeps the top half and the bottom half

@akp: of course... that is our gateway to the ICC presentation ceremony and maybe they think we are too creative and so you would be made the ICC head... I am having all hopes on that one

Dude you have came with a good idea but i think it not necessary in cricket also can say captain of a cricket team has to make more work of leadership than a football captain. In football coach play major than the captain. Armband is weared in cricket at some special occasion or for some promotional purpose.

Well i don't know about promotional purpose. But some changes can be good. I mean having colored uniform in ODI matches is good change even it is not necessary.. So i guess changes are good so why not go for something like that..

ya wearing something like armband is acceptable. and in soccer even the non playing player can be a captain, but hear player should be one player inthe playing eleven. but wearing something like armband is acceptable, but not like to have a major difference. even if there is no arm band i am able to distinguish the captain as i know the captains of each team.

Yeah in cricket a captain surely not needed something like that to recognize his position in match. But some changes are good. I mean crickets were playing ODI matches with white dress but now they having colored uniform. And it is really good change.
