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

IPL 2020: Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik on Friday handed over the captaincy of Kolkata Knight Riders to England World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan.

The KKR franchise released a statement regarding this, stating that Dinesh Karthik wanted to focus more on his batting.

KKR CEO Venky Mysore said in a statement, “We were fortunate to have leaders like Dinesh Karthik who always kept the team top.

It takes a lot of courage for a person like him to make such a decision. “While we are surprised by his decision, we also respect his will.”

Mysore said, “Karthik and Eoin did a great job together during this tournament.

Even though Eoin is taking over the captaincy, it is a one-way exchange of roles and we hope that this change will work smoothly. ”

“On behalf of everyone associated with Kolkata Knight Riders, we thank Dinesh Karthik for his contribution as captain over the last two and a half years and wish Ion all the best,” he said.
