IPL 2020: Eoin Morgan replaces Dinesh Karthik as Kolkata Knight Riders captain

IPL 2020 Indian Premier League Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab Face-Off Chris Morris vs KL Rahul

For Karthik, a major problem was constant comparisons with double IPL winning former skipper Gautam Gambhir, who was removed in 2018 after Karthik played that epic 8-ball-29 at the Nidahas Trophy.

Dinesh Karthik, after leading Kolkata Knight Riders to victory in seven matches, has chose to hand over the captaincy of the further ongoing IPL 2020 to Eoin Morgan.

Having lost all their specialist batsmen barring Morgan, the newly-elected skipper and Cummins joined hands to stitch an unbeaten 87-run partnership for the sixth wicket to provide their bowlers some cushion for the second innings.

Big news coming in from IPL 2020 from the Kolkata Knight Riders franchise. Venky Mysore, the CEO of KKR applauded Karthik for the same.

Announces 158 more cases of COVID-19 but no new deaths
Since the pandemic began, B.C. has recorded 10,892 cases of COVID-19 and 250 people have died from the disease. There are now 3,608 people under "active public health monitoring", according to Henry and Brown.

Over two seasons, Karthik has led KKR to 19 victories in 37 games. While we were surprised by his decision, we honored him. MI's triumph in match 32 of the ongoing IPL 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, has propelled them to the top of the points table.

Mysore added, "We are also fortunate that Eoin Morgan, the 2019 World Cup-winning captain, who has been the vice captain, is willing to lead the side going forward". The development wasn't unexpected, but has surprisingly come with just a few hours before KKR's next match, against the Mumbai Indians on Friday night.

Mumbai made no race of the chase, as captain Rohit Sharma late cut the first delivery to the boundary, and fellow opener Quinton de Kock finished on 78 not out off 44 balls to get them to 149-2 in the 17th over and their fifth straight win.
