India’s 2011 World Cup winning captain MS Dhoni, Zimbabwe’s Elton Chigumbura and Ireland’s William Porterfield are the only captains from the 2011 World Cup who are leading their sides in the upcoming 2015 edition. Leaving out these three players, all the other teams are going into the World Cup are having a captain who is yet to lead his side in the World Cup. English captain Eoin Morgan and his West Indian counterpart Jason Holder were just appointed captains be their respective boards.

Michael Clarke has the highest win-loss ratio among all the teams going into the World Cup. Clarke, who is currently racing with time to get fit in time for the World Cup as he is recovering from his hamstring injury. Clarke, who has the win-loss ratio of 68.75, leads the list of captains with highest win-loss ratio followed by Bangladesh’s Mashrafe Mortaza (66.66) and South Africa’s AB de Villiers (6160).

Among the other captains, MS Dhoni is the only captain who has lead his side to victory in a World Cup (be it the 50 over format or the World T20). Having leading India since the World T20, MS Dhoni is India’s most successful captains in the limited overs format. Under MS Dhoni, India won the 2008 CB Series in Australia, ODI series in New Zealand, England, West Indies apart from winning the 2011 World Cup and 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. Dhoni will look to win the World Cup once again and most probably finish off his career on a high. With a win-loss ratio with an average of 60.12 from 168 matches, Dhoni is one of the finest captains going into the World Cup.

Here is the list of all the 2015 World Cup captains along with their win-loss ratio.
