Eoin Morgan takes over from Dinesh Karthik as KKR captain

Eoin Morgan takes over from Dinesh Karthik as KKR captain”

England's World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan has been named the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper with immediate effect in the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). As per a statement released by the franchise, Karthik now looks forward to focusing more on his batting. "It's incredibly selfless and also shows a lot of courage from him, putting the team first ahead of him being skipper". While we were surprised by his decision, we honored him. As England's limited-overs captain, Morgan has led the team to 77 wins from 126 ODIs and 30 wins out of 52 T20Is since 2011.

There have been calls for Morgan to name the captain from the start of the season itself and it grew more when a few of Karthik's decision went wrong.

The Knight Riders are now placed fourth in the points table and have won four of their seven games under Karthik so far. "We are fortunate that Morgan is willing to lead the side going forward". His form has been indifferent in the United Arab Emirates this season, recording four single-figure scores in seven innings.

The website stated that Dinesh Karthik himself chose to hand over the captain duties to the England skipper as he wants to concentrate more on his batting and keeping. On this occasion, Irfan Pathan reacted to Dinesh Karthik stepping down from the leadership position of Kolkata Knight Riders. Even though Eoin is handling the captaincy, it is a one-way exchange of roles and we hope that this change will work smoothly. Kolkata Knight Riders might be seen in motion on Friday once they tackle the defending champions Mumbai Indians on the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Venky Mysore, the CEO of KKR applauded Karthik for the same.
