Former Indian pacer RP Singh has slammed the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team management for their poor decision-making in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, asserting that no batter is getting a settled position in the playing XI.
Kolkata Knight Riders were off to a brilliant start in the Indian Premier League 2022. However, now they have lost 5 successive games in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The Shreyas Iyer-led side will be looking forward to finally ending their losing streak when they lock horns with Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Monday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Speaking during a discussion on Cricbuzz, former Indian pacer RP Singh criticized the captain and management of Kolkata Knight Riders and highlighted that there are a lot of changes being made to the playing XI. He said:
“From the outside, we try to figure out what should be a team’s best combination. Of course, there is no pressure on us. Still, I don’t know what the captain and management are thinking. Look at the kind of changes they have made. Venkatesh Iyer had been moved from top to the middle order. He is back opening the innings now. Nitish Rana has also been moved up and down the order. No batter is getting a settled position.”
RR have the advantage over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) because of clarity – Pragyan Ojha
Former Indian spinner Pragyan Ojha said that the Rajasthan Royals will have an advantage over Kolkata Knight Riders because they have a lot more clarity than KKR. He added that Kolkata Knight Riders are a good side but they have a lot of confusion in the camp, which makes them an unsettled side. He elaborated:
“RR have the advantage over Kolkata because of clarity. KKR are a good team, but there is too much confusion in the camp. In the last match, they brought in Baba Indrajith as the keeper. Will they continue with him or make another change? Can’t understand their planning.
“By looking at a team, you understand the pattern of their team selection. When the captain speaks, he says they will play together with clarity but that is not visible when we see the team on the ground. Because of this confusion, Kolkata are looking an unsettled outfit.”
