“Virat Kohli Should Learn From Dinesh Karthik” Fans Hail DK After He Stepped Aside

Kolkata Knight Riders announced earlier today that Dinesh Karthik has stepped down from the captaincy and Eoin Morgan has been announced as KKR’s new skipper.

This is a very good decision by the franchise because Morgan is a World Cup-winning captain and he has shown extraordinary leadership skills while leading England in limited-overs cricket.

As per KKR’s official websites, Dinesh Karthik informed the KKR management that he would like to hand over the captaincy to Eoin Morgan in order to stay focused on his batting.

Venky Mysore, CEO of KKR said:

“We are fortunate to have leaders such as Dinesh Karthik, who has always put the team first. It takes a lot of courage for someone like him to take a decision such as this. While we were surprised by his decision, we are respectful of his wishes. We are also fortunate that Eoin Morgan, the 2019 World Cup-winning captain, who has been the vice-captain, is willing to lead the side going forward. DK and Eoin have worked brilliantly together during this tournament and although Eoin Morgan takes over as captain, this is effectively a role swap and we expect that this transition will work in a seamless manner”

KKR fans seem to be very happy with the decision as their team’s performance in IPL 2020 has not been great and they are hoping for a big turnaround in the second half of the tournament. Dinesh Karthik has made some silly decisions for KKR as skipper and fans have welcomed his decision of handing over the responsibility to Eoin Morgan, who led England to triumph in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

This will also allow Dinesh Karthik to focus on his batting as his contributions with the bat are going to be a huge difference for KKR. KKR fans would be hoping that this decision will turn things around for them in IPL 2020.
