After the 18-run loss of KKR to Delhi Capitals, a few decisions by the captain were criticized which made Sreesanth share his opinion. “Genuinely feel @Eoin16 should lead the side,(surly not*dk kolaimandaaaiii) World Cup winning captain should surly lead ipl side.I hope #kkr looks at this issue.nd win. they need a leader who will lead from front like Rohit, Dhoni or Virat..what a player,” Sreesanth tweeted.

Fans echo the thought
In the match against Delhi Capitals, Eoin Morgan came into bat at number six when Karthik came ahead of him. The skipper although could add just six runs, whereas Morgan was dismissed for 44 by Anrich Nortje. When Morgan was sent to bat KKR still needed 112 runs from 43 balls and Morgan got involved in a 78-run stand with Rahul Tripathi. So, a lot of people feel that Morgan, if came earlier could have changed the fate of Kolkata Knight Riders in the match. Dinesh Karthik, so far has played four matches and scored a total 37 runs.
It was also surprising how the Riders sent Rahul Tripathi to bat at No. 8 who is specialised batsman. Sunil Narine has been a huge failure as opener for KKR this season. All these reasons have made fans furious and even they want Morgan to lead KKR. Aatif Nawaz wrote, “With all due respect to Dinesh Karthik, Eion Morgan should really be the captain of KKR. He’s only won a World Cup…probably knows a thing or two about captaincy. And while we’re at it he should really be batting at 3/4. Bringing him in at 6 with the game almost gone is bonkers.” A lot of fans posted, “ Retweet if you don’t want Dinesh Karthik as a captain of #KKR !!”
