KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik eager to emulate Virat Kohli

KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik eager to emulate Virat Kohli

He's got a fantastic domestic record captaining Tamil Nadu in the T20 tournament there. He was bought by the franchise for a whopping amount of Rs 7.4 Crores in the auction which took place in January. The announcement was made by CEO Venky Mysore on a TV show on Star Sports.

Uthappa, the 32-year old who has played for the Knight Riders since 2014, might have missed out on the chance to lead them on account of limited captaincy experience. Karthik led Tamil Nadu to a title victory in the Vizay Hazare trophy in 2009-10 with the 72% win record Karthik led India red in previous year Duleep Trophy.

Karthik said he was looking forward to leading a side having a combination of youth and experience. "I will do my best to represent brand KKR and the millions of KKR fans".

India's Dinesh Karthik watches the ball during the second ODI against NZ in Pune past year.

Uthappa, the vice captain of the side, observed that his association with Karthik goes back in time to Under-17 days and he was looking forward to his new role.

"We had Heath Streak as bowling coach and he was very efficient and I know he has the potential to help these youngsters and they have lot to learn from him as a bowling coach and they are in safe hands, and with somebody like Jacques Kallis, who is an all-rounder, he would be giving right advice as well". "I think he's got a 72% win-rate which is outstanding as a T20 skipper".




"The other thing about him is that he has got a lot of respect from the players given what he has achieved on the field and what he has achieved as a captain domestically".

Kolkata Knight Riders will begin their VIVO IPL 2018 journey at Eden Gardens on Sunday, April 08, 2018.

Prior to joining the Knight Riders, Karthik has bounced around from team to team as he has represented the Delhi Daredevils, Kings XI Punjab, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Lions. He has also played 228 T20s, apart from 14 internationals for India, with 4441 runs and 186 dismissals to his name.

Dinesh Karthik appointed as a Captain for (KKR) Kolkata Knight Riders: - Well, IPL 2018 is coming and every single team is getting ready for their teams and playing squad.

The wicketkeeper-batsman from Chennai is also the most successful skipper in Tamil Nadu's local T20 league - Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) - as he led Tuti Patriots to glory in 2016.
