Brian Moore on the English cult of captaincy

Good sense from the former England hooker Brian Moore:
Jones should end the cult of the captain that has bedevilled too many England teams in too many sports; it is a relic of the public school/officer class/born-to-lead era and the sooner it goes the better. Appoint on a game-by-game or tournament-by-tournament basis and that will avoid trouble later on.

That was the traditional Australian cricketing way: pick the best team and then select a captain from among them. But what accounts for Kim Hughes?
