Twitter Sarcastically Trolls KKR For Having Appointed Dinesh Karthik As Their New Captain

While many speculated that Robin Uthappa might get to be at the helm of the Kolkata Knight Riders, it’s Dinesh Karthik who took the cake. Dinesh Karthik who was bought for a hefty amount by the Kolkata Knight Riders in the auctions will be now leading the Kolkata Knight Riders. The 32-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman was bought for 7.4 crores by the franchise and he would now have big shoes to fill.

Karthik holds a decent experience of captaincy having led Tamil Nadu in major domestic tournaments. He had also led India Red team in Duleep Trophy last year. But being the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders, Gautam Gambhir has left behind a legacy and to carry forward this legacy would be a huge responsibility on Dinesh Karthik’s shoulder.

His career never got stable at the international level and now it would be interesting to see if this new role brings him any stability.
