Here we look at other aspects of the performances of Test captains. We had started with those who won all their Tests and those who never lost any. Now we look at their converses:
Captains who lost all their Tests:
As one may guess, the first two (both with the first name Khaled) were from Bangladesh and lost all their 12 and 9 Tests respectively. Next is WI’s KC Brathwaite who lost all his 5 Tests and India’s DK Gaekwad (4)
There are a total of 38 captains who lost all their Tests, but the above includes only the 21 who lost all their Tests from 2 onward. Recent additions are Mominul Haque with 2 and WTS Porterfield with 3.
Then there were the
Captains who never lost any Test:
There are actually 50 such cases, but we consider only the 24 cases for 2 or more Tests shown above.
At the top is Warwick Armstrong (8 wins and 2 draws) Brian Close (6 wins and 1 draw) and FG Mann (2 wins and 5 draws). From India there is Srikkanth (4 draws in a single series). In recent years there is AM Rahane (2 wins).
