Finding it difficult to focus on his batting, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Dinesh Karthik has informed the team’s management that he wants to hand over the captaincy responsibility to Eoin Morgan.
The recent development in the KKR came before the crucial IPL match against the Mumbai Indians.
"Dinesh Karthik has informed the KKR management that with a view to focusing on his batting and contributing more to the team's cause, he wished to hand over the captaincy to Eoin Morgan," KKR said in a statement.
It may be mentioned that before the start of the season, former Indian opener Sunil Gavaskar had said that Eoin Morgan should be given the captaincy of KKR instead of Dinesh Karthik.
