Dinesh Karthik led Kolkata Knight Riders lost by 18 runs in the match against Delhi Capitals on Saturday. Kolkata Knight Riders’ captain Dinesh Karthik flopped once again with the bat, he could only score 6 runs.
Even in the last 2 matches, he hadn’t done much with the bat and was dismissed by scoring 1 and 0 runs. He has been failing again and again in impressing KKR fans so far.
After the last defeat of KKR against DC, Dinesh Karthik’s captaincy is the ‘topic of talk’ everywhere.
One such person is former pacer S. Sreesanth. After KKR lost the match by 18 runs against Delhi Capitals, he has demanded to remove Karthik from the post of captaincy. Sreesanth has directly written in his tweet that KKR should now be captained by Eoin Morgan.
According to him, Morgan should now be the captain of KKR, he is a world cup winning captain and is eligible to lead KKR. He also wishes that management will look into this. Sreesanth has further written in his tweet that KKR needs captains like Virat and Rohit Sharma to come forward and lead the team.
Sreesanth Demanded Eoin Morgan as Captain
In the match against Delhi Capitals, there was a talk about the batting order of Morgan and Rahul Tripathi. While Delhi had scored 228 runs in the match, KKR could manage only 210 runs for 8 wickets. Morgan and Tripathi batted at the last minute and it felt like they can turn the match by their side but Morgan was dismissed for 44 off 18 balls, ending KKR’s hopes of victory.
Apart from this, Rahul Tripathi scored 36 runs off 16 balls, which included 3 fours and 3 sixes. In the match, Delhi Capitals’ captain Shreyas Iyer was awarded the title of man of the match for his explosive 88-run innings.
