World Cup 2011 Captains: Where are they now?
India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh had hosted the Tenth edition of the Cricket World Cup tournament. Total 14 teams had qualified for the tournament, with a perspective to win the trophy.
Australia walked in the tournament as three-time defending champions with this World Cup being their captain Ricky Ponting’s last.
It was one of the most competitive World Cup tournaments, and the captains were under a lot of pressure to get the best out of their teams.
However, almost eight years after the tournament some of them have retired, some are still playing while some have been dropped from the side.
With the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 approaching us, let us have a look at the current situation of those 14 flag-bearers of 2011 -
#1 Jimmy Kamande (Kenya)
Kenya was an associate team which had qualified for the 2011 World Cup under the leadership of Jimmy Kamande. With less talented players, Kenya lost every match of the tournament and exited Asia without a win.
Jimmy Kamande was sacked from the position of the captain due to the poor performance of the team under his leadership in the 2011 World Cup.
Kamande never stepped back on the ground since 2011 after playing his final match against the Aussies in the World Cup.
Currently, he is playing the role of the head coach of U-19 Kenya cricket team and is training the Kenyan youngsters.
