    Here I am pitting and selecting the all-time xi consisting of cricketers who have been captains versus the all-time xi comprising those who never led their country.

    CAPTAINS XI
    Sunil Gavaskar
    Len Hutton
    Don Bradman
    Viv Richards
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Gary Sobers
    Mahendra Singh Dhoni
    Imran Khan
    Kapil Dev
    Wasim Akram
    Bishen Bedi


    NON CAPTAINS XI

    Barry Richards
    Virendra Sehwag
    Everton Weekes
    Kevin Pieterson
    Lawrence Rowe
    Keith Miller
    Adam Gilchrist
    Richard Hadlee
    Malcolm Marshall
    Shane Warne
    Dennis Lillee



    Significant that almost all great batsmen have been skippers but almost no fast bowlers.Captains team has a much stronger batting team and all-rounders but non-captains team has a stronger bowling attack.Non captains XI is on par with Captains xi in terms of allrounders.Opening batsmen also on par.

    Sorry for error.Kevin Pieterson led in 3 tests.Thus replaced him with Graeme Pollock in non captains XI.

    NON CAPTAINS XI

    Barry Richards
    Virendra Sehwag
    Everton Weekes
    Graeme Pollock
    Lawrence Rowe
    Keith Miller
