IPL 2020: Kartik relinquished the captaincy of KKR, the team entrusted to this veteran

Abu Dhabi: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain Dinesh Karthik (Dinesh Kartik) has decided to relinquish the captaincy in the season between IPL (IPL 2020) and is now England’s World Cup winning captain and vice-captain in this Indian Premier League franchise. Eoin Morgan, playing the role of, has been appointed as the captain.

Karthik told the KKR management that he wanted to focus on his batting and contribute more and more to the team. Karthik has said that this decision will help him focus on his batting.

The 35-year-old captain, who was appointed captain in 2018, has led the team in 37 matches. Morgan will lead the team in the match against Mumbai Indians.

KKR CEO Venky Mysore said in a statement, ‘We were fortunate to have a leader like Dinesh Karthik who always kept the team paramount. A person like him needs a lot of courage to make such a decision ‘.

He said, ‘While we are surprised by his decision, we also respect his wish’.

Out of the seven matches that KKR has played so far, he won four and lost three. His team is fourth in the table. Mysore said, ‘Karthik and Eoin did a great job together during this tournament. Even though Eoin is handling the captaincy, but it is a one-way exchange of roles and we hope that this change will work smoothly ‘.

He said, ‘On behalf of everyone associated with Kolkata Knight Riders, we thank Dinesh Karthik for his contribution as captain in the last two and a half years and wish Ion all the best’.

Karthik’s captaincy was being criticized for the team’s poor performance so far. If KKR have played four matches so far, then their number could have been halved as they won close against Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab.

Except for a half-century innings against Kings XI Punjab, Karthik’s performance was nothing special. Apart from this, his strategy failed many times. He was not comfortable with the inclusion of the best spinner like Kuldeep Yadav on the slow XI on Sharjah, which also raised some questions.

He has shown greater reliance on young fast bowler Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagerkoti, who have almost the same variance and also condemned his captaincy decision, instead of the legendary Krishna who bowled brilliantly in the death overs against Kings XI Punjab.
