List of Indian Premier League captains

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In cricket, a captain is a player who leads the team and has additional roles and responsibilities.[1][2] The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a professional league for Twenty20 cricket in India,[3] which has been held annually since its first edition in 2008.[4] In the nine seasons played, 34 players have captained their team in at least one match.[5]

The Chennai Super Kings's Mahendra Singh Dhoni has played the most number of matches as a captain, leading the team in 96 matches with a win–loss percentage of 61.05.[5] The best win–loss percentage among captains who have captained more than ten matches, Mumbai Indians's Rohit Sharma has the best win–loss percentage: 76.92.[5] Dhoni has won the most number of matches playing as a captain, with 58; whereas Adam Gilchrist has lost the most number of matches playing as a captain: 39.[5] Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara are the only players to captain three teams: the former has captained the Delhi Daredevils, the Kings XI Punjab and the Kochi Tuskers Kerala, whereas the latter has captained the Deccan Chargers, the Kings XI, and the Sunrisers Hyderabad.[5]

James Hopes of the Daredevils have captained the most number of matches without registering a win; he led his team in three matches, two of which were lost and one ended with no result.[5] Six players have captained the Daredevils, the Indians and the Warriors each; five players have captained the Kings XI and the Royal Challengers each; four players have captained the Deccan Chargers; three players have captained the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Rajasthan Royals each; whereas two players have captained the Super Kings and the Tuskers each.[5]

The list includes those players who have captained their team in at least one IPL match. The list is initially organised by the number of matches as a captain and if the numbers are tied, the list is sorted by last name.[α][β][γ]
