Dinesh Karthik leads Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL. The franchise has a rich history and has been captained by Sourav Ganguly, Brendon McCullum and Gautam Gambhir in the past. Though Ganguly’s inclusion in his home side was the biggest hype for the franchise, Gambhir was there most successful captain.

After taking over, Karthik’s performance as a skipper has not been too bad. His team finished at 3rd and 5th positions respectively in the last two seasons. However, his underachievements at the International level leads to his criticism in IPL as well. Despite bringing in Eoin Morgan, the World Cup-winning captain for England, KKR kept their faith in Karthik for the upcoming IPL 2020.

Karthik is a cool and composed customer. His ability to finish the games is highly reliable but his stature as an international player faced criticism. With the signing of Morgan and Pat Cummins, KKR is looking a strong side to finish in the top 4 on the points table.
