Lara back as Captain

The WI selectors had no choice but to return Lara to the helm. The team is completely dependent on him. None of the players in the current WI team come anywhere close to him both in terms of record and stature. Chanderpaul was a complete failure as captain. Understandably Lara is difficult to work with. Can’t think of a better solution than to make him incharge. Captaincy is less of an issue for WI. The dismal performance of the current team and the complete lack of bench strength should be a of greater concern. Lara has not been a hugely successful captain, so its unlikely he can help with either of these issues. At a minimum he’ll be doing WI a huge favor if he recovers his own form in return for being conferred the captaincy!
