IPL 2020: KKR is eyeing to win the IPL title for the third time. In view of this, many major changes are being made in the team.
IPL 2020: The 13th season of the Indian Premier League is going to start in the UAE from 19 September. In IPL 13, Kolkata Knight Riders are eyeing the title for the third time under the leadership of Dinesh Karthik. In the new season, KKR’s team has included the captain of the ODI World Cup-winning team, Eoin Morgan in the team. Team mentor David Hussey believes that this step will help Dinesh Karthik.
Kolkata Knight Riders will play their first match in the 13th season of the IPL on 23 September in Abu Dhabi with the defending champions Mumbai Indians. Hussey said, “Morgan is the World Cup-winning captain. He has captained England for a long time and he is a class player. Morgan will prove to be a great ally for Dinesh Karthik.”
He said, “Maybe fielding in the ring and talking to the bowlers while our captain is wicket-keeping behind the stumps. He is also a very calm and collected person, so he is in the middle overs of our captain It will also be very useful to control things.
The special plan made for Russell
Apart from this, David Hussey has also given information about the changes happening in the team. Hussey has indicated that fast-forward all-rounder Andre Russell can be given the chance to bat at number three this season. Hussey believes that if Russell gets a chance to play 60 balls, he can also score a double century.
Last year, Russell showed superb form despite receiving fewer chances. Russell scored 510 runs at an average of 56.66 in 13 innings of the 2019 IPL, besides taking 11 wickets. However, due to not using Russell properly, KKR was also targeted last season.
