Sharjah: Indian cricketer S. Sreesanth (S. Sreesanth) feels that Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) should be captained by Eoin Morgan of England and not Dinesh Karthik in IPL 2020. Kolkata had to face defeat at the hands of Delhi Capitals in the last match.
After the match, Sreesanth tweeted and wrote, ‘I think Eoin Morgan should captain Kolkata. Not to Dinesh Karthik. The World Cup winning captain should captain the IPL team. I hope Kolkata will see the issue that they want a leader who can lead the team like Rohit, Dhoni and Virat from the future ‘.
In this match, Delhi Capitals had scored 228 runs at the loss of four wickets while batting first and won the match by 18 runs, stopping Kolkata for 210 runs for eight wickets.
Morgan came to bat in this match. On this matter, former fast bowler Madan Lal also tweeted and wrote, ‘What is the management of Kolkata thinking. He is sending the best limited-overs player to bat so low. They have to think about it. The reason for defeat is to take wrong decisions’.
Morgan, however, defended the team’s decision. He said, ‘When you look at the batting order, we have a lot of match-winning players. So it is very difficult to bat in the upper order. Especially when you have a player like Andre Russell. He is a great batsman. When they come up, everyone has to make changes’.
