ICC Awards 2006: Captain of the Year - Initial list of Nominees
If not for the Ashes, Vaughan's name would have been miles away from the list below. Rahul Dravid had a good first year as a captain. Same with Mahela. But you see, if you are not the captain of the Australian cricket team, come awards night, there is no way your name is going to get announced as the winner in this category. This has Ricky's name written all over it.
