Interesting no Englishman in there after all these years. Surprised to see Dhoni and Flemming in the list. Didint realize 27 wins (seems a very small number)would get you in here given the amount of cricket played these days.

Stormy, this is baffling indeed. The country which invented the game is missing from almost all record books.
20 odd wins may look minuscule, but I feel it will take great effort to surpass even the last man on the list. Reasons - a) test cricket is played less compared to other formats b) players now a days find it difficult to play all the formats, most of them prefer to give up tests in favor of the money that other formats offer. c) Gone are the days when a Test captain would lead the side for years.

@Cricketbuff - couple of points.

Would be intersting to know how the SL captains line up. Surely Arjuna would lead the list or would it be Mahela.

Also would be intersting to know the wins to games captained ratio. I reckon Mark Taylor would soar up that list and Border down the list. Taylor captained a very successfull Aus team but probably didnt captain for long enough but had a high winning %, if that makes sense.

Stormy, as usual its a pleasure to hear from you!

Would plan for a video on SL captains. I am also pretty sure Arjuna leads the SL list.
Nice suggestion about that win %. Will include in future videos.

S Waugh - 71.92 [41/57]
Ponting - 62.33 [48/77]
V Richards - 54 [27/50]
Taylor - 52 [26/50]
