Well, the same could have been said about the local players of the Rajasthan Royals when Shane Warne captained them - but they did fine! He encouraged, yelled, cajoled them to victory using a combination of gestures, simple phrases and an interpreter when needed. I know English is more widely spoken in India than in Bangladesh, but there are plenty of local Indian players from poor backgrounds which prevented them from learning English.

If Trego is the best choice for captain, he should be made captain. They will be able to get over the language barrier.
