Dinesh Karthik has decided to give up his Kolkata Knight Riders' captaincy in order to focus more on his batting for the rest of the IPL 2020. Eoin Morgan, England's World Cup-winning captain, will take over franchise leadership duties from Dinesh Karthik to take the team forward.

The CEO of KKR, Venky Mysore said, "we are fortunate to have leaders such as DK, who has always put the team first. It takes a lot of courage for someone like him to take a decision such as this. While we were surprised by his decision, we are respectful of his wishes".



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. DK and Eoin have worked brilliantly together during this tournament and although Eoin takes over as captain, this is effectively a role swap and we expect that this transition will work in a seamless manner", he added.

Under Dinesh Karthik's leadership, KKR have won four out of their seven matches so far this year and are placed fourth on the points table with 8 points.

For Eoin Morgan, his first real challenge is up against the defending champions, Mumbai Indians today (October 16) at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Stay tuned...
