Gautam Gambhir Slams Dinesh Karthik
Indian former cricketer Gautam Gambhir slams Dinesh Karthik for stepping down from KKR’s captaincy. Dinesh Kartik who leads the KKR in the IPL 2020 hand over the captaincy to Eoin Morgan in the mid of the season.
Though it arises numerous rumors Dinesh Karthik clears that he took this decision in order to concentrate on his batting. This is not the first time a skipper goes through the tough situation by not scoring enough runs for the franchise.
Gambhir too out of form during his captaincy
Even KKR’s former skipper Gautam Gambhir too faces a lot of hurdles and criticism while leading the team without making a huge impact on the scoreboard. Gambhir overcomes the criticism and leads Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) to bag the trophy a couple of times under his captaincy.
Dinesh Karthik and KKR’s performance with new skipper
After DK stepped down from KKR’s captaincy neither his game nor his team made a good improvement. Dinesh Karthik and KKR face a lot of ups and downs in this current year IPL.
“It just shows the mindset. You left captaincy because you wanted to concentrate on batting, but then it hasn’t worked, so probably sometimes it’s good when you take up responsibilities,” Gambhir told cricket.com.
“What I’ve realized when I was through a worse phase in 2014. I got three ducks in a row when we started the tournament. It was captaincy that helped me that I could get back into form.
“The reason why because when I was not batting, I was thinking about how to make the team win through my captaincy and the decision making. But when you’re not captaining, you’re thinking even more about your batting.”
Currently, Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) is in the 6th position of the IPL 2020 points table. After CSK’s elimination from the IPL 2020, the fight for the top four positions gets in heat.
