Collingwood: Not the Right Man For the Job

Mike WhiteContributor IJune 15, 2009

So far during the International Twenty20 England are going nicely but is this down to the captain Paul Collingwood.

Personally I do not think it is down to Collingwood's captaincy, so far he has taken just the one wicket and has a high score of 19, averaging 12 runs a match. Meaning he is not particularly leaing the team by example.

Also I do not think his captaincy decisions have been to good, somehow losing to the Netherlands and worst of all his England team were destroyed by South Africa, after only putting up 123 during a very slow innings.

After Collingwood's poor form of recent matches, I not only think he should not be captain, I also think he should not be in the team.

I think he should be replaced by a player who has proven themself as a captain and a decent 20 over player. My personal choice would be the Kent skipper Robert Key, but there are other players who perhaps deserve the captaincy as well.
