The selection of a team captain is dependent on the performance, discipline of players in terms of various parameters in the concerned sports. In this paper we propose an approach for recommending a future team captain.  The idea is to match profiles of all candidates of captaincy with an ideal captain profile and the one having the highest similarity can be recommended as a captain. We use principal component analysis for this purpose.  A real world dataset of more than 76 Captain of different countries is taken from Cricinfo – the world’s largest database for game of cricket having information about 50000 players from all over the world.
