In a sport, you win some and lose some but their are different consequences a captain can face due to the result. KKR captain Dinesh Karthik is in the thick of things for his poor decision making. He has been criticised to the fore after KKR lost their match against Delhi Capitals by 18 runs.
Karthik has been questioned for backing Sunil Narine to open the batting for KKR despite his poor run. KKR have utilised Rahul Tripathi in the middle-order with some suggesting that he can opening the innings for the side. This has also opened to further speculations if 2019 World Cup winning captain should be given a chance to lead KKR.
Dinesh Karthik should stick as captain and utilize Morgan’s experience: Brad Hogg
Former Australia and KKR spinner Brad Hogg said that Eoin Morgan is great captain and his skills needs to be utilised. Hogg however mentioned that Karthik is doing great and should continue as the captain of the side.
“Look, I’d love this move to make Eoin Morgan KKR captain. Morgan is a great captain, and when you got someone like that in your team, you got to utilise those skills. But Dinesh Karthik is doing a good job, but he has to utilise Morgan’s skills,” Hogg said in reply to a fan’s question on a video uploaded on his Youtube channel.
“You gotta realise in their team they can only play four overseas players. If Morgan starts finding a little bit of misfortune with his form, they have to bring in Tom Banton. Having him as captain will make it difficult to drop Morgan. So, I’d stick with Dinesh Karthik, but utilise Morgan’s experience,” he added.
KKR will come in to the match against CSK, later in the day, at the back of a loss against Delhi Capitals in their previous game while CSK made a thunderous comeback to register a 10-wicket win in their last match.
