KKR NEW CAPTION
Dinesh Karthik on Friday stepped down as the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) while handing over the captaincy duties to ICC World Cup 2019 World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan.
Karthik has moved away from captaincy with a view to focus on his batting and contributing more to the team’s cause.
Karthik’s decision to step down from captaincy duties come as a major surprise as KKR have been doing well in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 and are sitting fourth in the points table with four wins in seven matches so far.
Morgan will start leading KKR from their match against Mumbai Indians, scheduled for Friday in Abu Dhabi.
