new Delhi: Before the IPL, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik (Dinesh Karthik) created a furore with the batting. Dinesh Karthik surprised everyone by stormy batting in a practice match. Let me tell you that the performance of Dinesh Karthik (Dinesh Karthik) was very poor in the last season. Dinesh Karthik scored only 169 runs in 14 innings played in IPL 2020. In the recently played Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy, Dinesh Karthik scored 183 runs at an excellent average of 61.
Dinesh Karthik is in excellent form before IPL 2021. Dinesh Karthik played 90 runs off 50 balls in a practice match. The video of Karthik’s stormy 90 runs is rocking social media. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has shared the video of Dinesh Karthik on social media, which fans are very fond of. Please tell that due to poor performance in the last season, Dinesh Karthik had to give up the captaincy and Eoin Morgan was replaced as captain.
Shakib Al Hasan will have trump card
Kolkata’s team has Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who can replace Naren in the team. Shakib can help in making a big score by batting fast in the middle order. In the event of Andre Russell failing, Kolkata have batsmen like Dinesh Karthik and captain Eoin Morgan, who can prove to be dangerous for any team bowler in the death overs.
Shubman Gill is also in form
Nitish Rana landed as the opening batsman last season and it is expected that he will be in the same role this season. Kolkata also has Shubman Gill, who has done well recently. Apart from the bat, Shakib can prove useful for the team with the ball as well, especially Chennai’s MA. He can prove to be crucial in the opening match at the Chidambaram Stadium where the spinners get help.
Cummins has a deadly bowler in the team
Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins will lead the front along with young bowler Krishna. Apart from these, Russell is also an option in fast bowling. New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson can also be an option when compared to Kolkata in Mumbai and Bengaluru. The team’s assistant coach Abhishek Nair said, our team is a balanced team. I think we need to make sure that all the players are in the right frame so that they can perform well in the tournament.
The Kolkata team is as follows:
Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Tim Seifert (wicketkeeper), Rahul Tripathi, Rinku Singh, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Eoin Morgan (captain), Andre Russell, Sunil Naren, Varun CV, Kuldeep Yadav, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti , Shivam Mavi, Sandeep Warrier, Famous Krishna, Shakib Al Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Harbhajan Singh, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer and Pawan Negi.
