New Delhi. In the second half of IPL 2021 (IPL 2021), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain Eoin Morgan has had a poor performance with the bat so far. Morgan has scored only 17 runs in 4 matches. He has not been able to cross the 10 run mark even once. Seeing his lackluster performance with the bat, Aakash Chopra has suggested KKR. Akash believes that at this time the Kolkata team management should replace Morgan with Shakib Al Hasan as the captain of the team.
Akash said that I Morgan’s bat is not getting runs and the team is in danger of being out of the playoffs. He tweeted that in difficult times you have to take tough steps. Can KKR consider making Shakib the captain for the remaining matches? Shakib can bowl a few overs along with his batting. I don’t have anything against Morgan, but if the runs aren’t coming, he’s not on the bus. This can happen with the best players as well.
KKR ranked fourth in the points table
Kolkata Knight Riders are currently at the fourth position in the points table of the IPL. The two-time IPL champion has won 5 out of 12 matches. He had to face defeat in the match against Punjab Kings a day earlier. While KKR had scored a challenging score of 165 runs. Despite this, Punjab achieved this target by losing 5 wickets.
KKR still have two more matches left in the league stage of the IPL. He has to face Sunrisers Hyderabad on 3 October. Hyderabad is already out of the league. At the same time, on October 7, KKR will face Rajasthan Royals. KKR will have to win both these matches at any cost to keep their playoff hopes alive.
