Eoin Morgan to replace Dinesh Karthik as Captain if KKR struggles, Gavaskar


Kolkata Knight Riders haven’t started their Indian Premier League 2020 Campaign, but they are ready to roar. KKR will kick off their IPL 2020 campaign from September 23 against Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi.

Dinesh Karthik to lead Kolkata Knight Riders. He is leading the team from last two seasons. In IPL 2018, Kolkata reached in the play-offs but in 2019, KKR failed to reach into the playoffs.

Now according to former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar Eoin Morgan can replace Dinesh Karthik as a Captain of KKR if he can fail to succeed the team.

“Kolkata Knight Riders is such a team that has a very attractive and aggressive batting order. But the addition of Eoin Morgan to the middle-order has added more stability and experience to it. Thus, he can prove to be very dangerous,” Gavaskar said in an interview on Sports Tak.

“Even this can happen that if in the first four-five games if KKR do not start well, then Eoin Morgan can replace Dinesh Karthik as the captain of the side because we always have had that complex,” Gavaskar said.

2019 World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan is fit and raring to go for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL 2020. The English star had plied his trade for KKR from 2011 to 2013. He featured in over 26 matches during this period and contributed crucial runs to the team’s tally.

Today, Rajasthan Royals will kick off their Indian Premier League 2020 campaign against Chennai Super Kings. You can watch this match live on Star Sports and Hotstar from 7:30 PM. Rajasthan Royals have won the IPL title once in 2008 there after they have failed to do this again.
