This isn't something new right? We have seen people's own form suffered after being the captain of a side. Similar is the case of Elton Chigumbura. He has expressed his wish to step down as the captain of Zimbabwean cricket team. The final decision would come out in next few days.
He said his primary task in the team is to bat and bowl well. But in the last few months his batting and bowling has been suffered because the captaincy is a demanding role. He succeeded as a captain against Sri Lanka and India back home in an ODI series where Zimbabwe lost in the finals. But considering the World Cup which was recently concluded, Zimababwe's performance was disappointing. So was the form of Chigumbura.
He also said that he needs to regain is form playing under someone else. This will not only help him but also the team as a whole.
