Being a captain of an Indian Premier League (IPL) team isn’t a simple thing to do. One major defeat and all the fault is pointed on the one driving the team. Kolkata Knight Riders chief Dinesh Karthik has been forced to bear a lot of analysis over his captaincy. After KKR lost by 18 runs against Delhi Capitals a week ago, the fans are clamoring for Dinesh Karthik to be removed from the KKR captaincy. The fans want Eoin Morgan as KKR captain for the upcoming games.

However, there is one individual who trusts it would not be the correct move for KKR – and that is previous Australia and KKR bowler, Brad Hogg. The previous left-arm spinner accepts that Dinesh Karthik should not be removed as the Kolkata Knight Riders‘ captain and Karthik should use Morgan’s captaincy experience more while captaining the KKR team.

Having Morgan the captain will be difficult for KKR

Brad Hogg said that he would love this transition to make Eoin Morgan the KKR skipper. Morgan is an extraordinary chief. When you got somebody like that in your group, you got the chance to use those experiences. Yet, Dinesh Karthik is working superbly, yet he needs to use Morgan’s skills going further to in the tournament. Both working together might bring the KKR team into winning ways.  

Hogg clarified that having Morgan as captain would imply that KKR should keep on playing him as one of the four foreign player alternatives, regardless of whether he suffers from a bad form at any phase of the competition.

You gotta acknowledge in their group they can just play four abroad players. On the off chance that Morgan begins finding bad form in the tournament, they need to get in Tom Banton. Having him as the captain of the team will make it hard to drop Morgan. In this way, Dinesh Karthik might stay as the captain of the KKR team.

Kolkata Knight Riders will go head to head against the 3 time IPL champions and the last year’s runner-up Chennai Super Kings.
