Ricky Ponting (165 wins)

Ricky Ponting (165 wins)

What can we say about the greatest captain in the one day internationals’ history? He is obviously the great Australian legend Ponting. He has the most matches under his captaincy belt and also won the most matches than any other captain. He captained 230 games in which his team triumphed 165 times. He is way ahead of any other captain in this list. His stellar batting and very intelligent captaincy made him a unique legend of the game of cricket.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni (100* wins)

Mahendra Singh Dhoni (100* wins)

One of the best finishers, Dhoni is the only captain in this list who is still winning games for his country. So he has a very good chance of overcoming another legend in this list. MS Dhoni captained India for so many famous wins in one days including 2011 World cup win. He captained team India for 177 games as of now and won 100 of them and still going strong. He is arguably India’s most successful one day captain for sure.

Hansie Cronje (99 wins)

Hansie Cronje (99 wins)

One of the saddest stories of the great cricketing legends. He was held guilty for being involved in a match fixing scandal by the King commission following which Cronje’s involvement from any form of cricket as a player or a coach was banned for life. Soon after it he died in an airplane crash, this is how his story ended. He captained South Africa in just 138 matches and ended up winning 99 matches.

Stephen Fleming (98 wins)

Stephen Fleming (98 wins)

Fleming was one of the calmest and cool composed skipper in New Zealand’s cricketing history. He captained his team in 218 one days and he led his team to the victory 98 times. He retired from the captaincy and one day cricket at the same time. But he gave his country many proud moments in his era with his elegant and classy left handed batting.
