A Skipper in cricket is simply another word for the captain of the team.

As captain, the skipper is responsible for leading the team and making decisions on the field. The skipper also has several other responsibilities, including selecting the team’s batting order, setting fields, and making bowling changes.

In addition, the skipper is often the face of the team and is responsible for representing the team to the media. As such, the skipper plays an important role in both on-field and off-field matters.
