KKR Fans Trolled Dinesh Karthik For Poor Captaincy In IPL 2020

The Delhi Capitals locked their horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders in Sharjah last night and the venue witnessed another high-scoring tournament. Before the game started, KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik won the toss and chose to field first, only to regret later on.

Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan kick-started the innings for Delhi Capitals with a bang. Prithvi Shaw was able to reach his second half-century of the season, however, after Dhawan walked back to the pavilion Shaw was joined by DC captain Shreyas Iyer.

Shreyas Iyer walked out to bat at number three with all guns blazing as he rained sixes at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Iyer made a stunning comeback into the game, after struggling to get going in the first few matches. After Prithvi Shaw’s dismissal, Rishabh Pant also played an important cameo and scored 38 off 17 balls.

Andre Russell was the only bowler to register an economy rate of less than 11. He picked 2 wickets while conceding 25 runs.

During the KKR’s innings, the two-time IPL winners failed to give a good start to the innings. After dismissing big wickets like Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine in quick successions, Nitish Raina tried to bring the much-needed balance into the game.

In fact, even the promotion of Andre Russell didn’t work for the team. And the skipper of Kolkata Knight Riders, and Rana were sent back to the pavilion in two consecutive balls. However, Eoin Morgan and Rahul Tripathi joined forces at the crease and rekindle hopes of another miracle.

As soon as DC won the game by 18 runs, social media was already flooded with reactions from fans on it. There were many who were not happy with the captaincy of DK and thus took their social media and criticized the decisions made by skipper DK.
