IPL 2020: Dinesh Karthik hands over the KKR captaincy to Eoin Morgan

As we head closer to the 1-month mark of the IPL 2020, there have been many controversies, super overs, close finishes among many other things. In no way this year’s IPL has been less exciting than the previous editions.

Kolkata Knight Riders are one of the consistent sides of IPL over the years. They are expected to make the playoffs. But in some matches, Dinesh Karthik’s captaincy had come under scrutiny along with his gamelans and strategies.

So, today, Dinesh Karthik has made it official that he is no more the captain of KKR. England captain Eoin Morgan will now lead the side for the rest of the tournament.

The official statement on the KKR’s website reads: “Dinesh Karthik has informed the KKR management that with a view to focus on his batting and contributing more to the team’s cause, he wishes to handover the team’s captaincy to Eoin Morgan.”

“Venky Mysore, CEO of KKR said ‘we are fortunate to have leaders such as DK, 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 takes over as captain, this is effectively a role swap and we expect that this transition will work in a seamless manner’.”

“On behalf of everyone at Kolkata Knight Riders, we thank DK for all his contributions as the captain over the past two and a half years and wish Eoin the very best going forward.”

Eoin Morgan will now don the KKR captaincy hat for the rest of the 7 group stage matches, starting from today against Mumbai Indians.
