The main thing you need to do is to prove yourself to them. If you show them that you are worthy of the captains honour then they will respect you. This could be by having a great knock or taking some important wickets. But also you need to utilise peoples specialist postitons, so you wouldnt put a fielder with great hands down at 3rd man. Thats all I can think of at the moment I will reply if i think of anymore! Good Luck

Talk to them, explain that you're all in it together and that the only way you'll find success is to work as a team. You're not bossing them around, merely managing the team to bring about the best results.

You need to lead by example, not necessaily by scoring the most runs or taking the most wickets, but by showing that you're not afraid to get your hands dirty and get stuck in with all the tasks.

If the problem lies with just one or two players, have a quiet word with them ask them why they don't always listen etc. Try not to be confrontational but be prepared to be firm if needed.

If you have a good relationship with your coach maybe ask him if you can take on some responsibilities at training such as doing the warm-up, managing fielding drills or even discussing players' roles within the team with them. I know that it may sound pretentious but this will familiarise them with the idea of you as an authority figure.

Another thing that I have done in the past is give an inspiring team talk before a big match to show how much you want the team to do well and how seriously you want them to take it. If you're a good speaker, you'd be amazed how much of an effect it can have!
