|* indicates the world cup edition which a captain won for his country|
We have had 11 editions of ICC cricket world cup so far and only two captains have achieved the distinction of having won their countries two world cups, consecutive editions of the quadrennial event as well. Let us also not forget that Clive Lloyd and Ricky Ponting were part of world-beating sides for much of their playing careers. Therefore, you can say that Lloyd and Ponting were successful captains and won two world cups because they had great teams.
Lloyd was the first world cup winning captain, lifting the trophy for his country (West Indies) in the year 1975.
