The presence of MSD at the top of the list of captains with the most wins in the Asia Cup is not at all surprising. MS has won many accolades wearing the Indian Blue and Asia Cup is not an exception. India was victorious under his captaincy in 2010 and 2016. In 14 Asia Cup fixtures, MSD as a captain has won 9 and lost 4 with 1 game tied.

Arjun Ranatunga led Sri Lanka to their World Cup victory in 1996. Aruja’s personality had a great impact on the entire nation of Sri Lanka back in the 1990s. No one even considered Sri Lanka to be the world champions, but they did it under the guidance of Arjuna Ranatunga.

Arjuna has 2nd most number of wins as a captain in Asia Cup. Out of 13 Asia Cup games as a captain, this Sri Lankan talisman took Sri Lanka over the line 9 times.

Misbah-ul-Haq had been the lone warrior for Pakistan for many years. Especially when every batter around him used to throw his wicket, Misbah had stood tall on many occasions and took Pakistan to at least a decent position. Out of 10 matches that have been captained by Misbah in the Asia Cup, Pakistan has won 7 of them. Under Misbah’s captaincy in 2012, Pakistan won the Asia Cup, their first since 2000.

Moin Khan

Moin Khan was the captain of Pakistan when they won the Asia Cup in 2000. He and Rashid Latif had a great competition for the wicketkeeping spot. Moin was nowhere near Rashid when it came to skills behind the wicket, though thanks to his pure batting abilities, he was always picked ahead of Rashid Latif. 

Interestingly, Moin is the only captain in the history of the Asia Cup to have a 100% winning record. He had captained Pakistan 6 times in the Asia Cup and had been on the right side of the results on all the 6 occasions.

Rohit Sharma

The name of Rohit Sharma is surely surprising in the list of most wins as a captain in the Asia Cup. Rohit has captained India on 7 occasions and has won 6 of them. He might climb to the top of the ladder in this Asia Cup only if India win matches. This could surely be one of the highlights of his already glittering career.

Rohit Sharma is already the 4th highest run-getter in the history of Asia Cup. This right-hand batter and Indian skipper has scored 830 runs in 24 matches. Rohit needs 390 runs more to be the highest run scorer in the Asia Cup. Sanath Jayasuriya is the highest run-getter at this moment with 1220 runs.

If Rohit Sharma can even approach the impressive score of 1220, it would be a thrilling sight for Indian cricket enthusiasts, particularly with the impending ODI World Cup on the horizon.
