Kolkata Hunt Desk: Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings are going to face in one of the most important matches of IPL today. Today, this match is practically on par with Dinesh Karthik. Because Dinesh Karthik can lose the captaincy if he loses today's match. And so before today's match, Dinesh Karthik is under a lot of pressure.
Kolkata Knight Riders have already collected four points in four matches in this year's IPL. Many have blamed Dinesh Karthik's captaincy for the Kolkata Knight Riders' poor performance. In the last match, Kolkata Knight Riders lost to Delhi Capitals. And since then, many have been vocal about Dinesh Karthik's captaincy. Even Kolkata Knight Riders' IPL-winning captain Gautam Gambhir has criticized some of Dinesh Karthik's decisions. He directly questioned the batting position of Dinesh Karthik. Gautam Gambhir has claimed that Karthik is coming to bat first despite having Twenty20 specialist batsmen like Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell in the team.
Former India bowler Sreesanth has also demanded the removal of Dinesh Karthik and the appointment of Eoin Morgan as the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders. Besides, some Kolkata Knight Riders supporters have demanded that Dinesh Karthik be removed and Ian Morgan be made the captain of the Knight Riders. And so today's match is practically equal to the ordeal of Dinesh Karthik. Because if Kolkata loses today, the captaincy of Dinesh Karthik may go to Eoin Morgan.
