In a game, there are several factors which make difference to the outcome. It is not only the captaincy nor the batting capability in isolation that works. Just as good captain and batsmen, good fielders, good bowlers are equally important.
Let us consider the position of the various teams as of now. We will find that in terms of the points achieved by the teams, KKR and Indians have the maximum points of 12 each. Though Indians lost only in 2 matches and the KKR lost in 3, the points are same. The cricket 'god' is the master batsman and is also the captain of the Indians. But still they lost 2 matches. Similarly Royals also lost 3 matches but their points ore only 11. The CSK which has the super captain lost 3 matches and got 10 pints only.
So what is required is a balanced team and a bit of luck. In spite of Mahela Jayawardene being a very good batsman and good captain, Tuskers lost 5 matches and got 8 points.
Ganguly has the experience as captain. Since the matches have already gone a long way, Ganguly can be taken as the captain and his strategy may work well for the CTK.
