Hours before Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) could lock horns with Mumbai Indians (MI) on October 16, Dinesh Karthik ended his captaincy career after 37 matches over two seasons.
The wicketkeeper-batsman handed over the charge to Eoin Morgan for IPL 2020. Karthik, who hasn’t performed well with the bat this season has scored only 108 runs from seven matches with just one half-century.
Currently, KKR are placed at the fourth spot in the points table with four wins from seven matches.
Karthik had joined KKR in IPL 2018 mega-auction where he led KKR to the playoffs in 2018. Meanwhile, Morgan, who had joined KKR for Rs 5.25 crore in IPL 2020, is all set to make his captaincy debut against Mumbai Indians.
Soon after the news of Karthik handing over the captaincy to Morgan went viral, social media went crazy and the decision received mixed responses.
Even former India opener Gautam Gambhir who was also surprised with the decision took to social media to express himself.
Gambhir took to his personal account and posted a cryptic tweet. He didn't mention the franchise's name nor anyone in the tweet but fans are assuming that he has expressed it at KKR. He tweeted saying, "It takes years to build a legacy but a minute to destroy it."
Looking into KKR's chances in playoffs; the Knight Riders have a strong chance to qualify for the playoffs. Fans are even eager to see if Morgan can pull off something big and change KKR's fate.
