Gautam Gambhir captained KKR between 2011 and 2017. Under his captaincy, KKR became champions in 2012 and 2014.
Dinesh Karthik relinquished the captaincy of Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday. Eoin Morgan was then handed the captaincy of the team. However, under Morgan’s captaincy, the team also suffered an 8-wicket loss to Mumbai Indians on Friday night. When Morgan was made the captain, former captain Gautam Gambhir said that it takes a long time to build a legacy. But it does not take even a minute to destroy it.

Gautam had captained KKR between 2011 and 2017. Under his captaincy, KKR became champions in 2012 and 2014.
Gambhir said that changing the captain in the middle of the tournament is unthinkable. At a time when Dinesh Karthik was captaining better. The team was in fourth place and won four out of seven matches. Not that Morgan will make any major changes to the team. If KKR were to replace the captain, he would have changed before the match. Morgan is then in a position to make any changes. It is also important to have a better relationship with the captain and team coach.
Nobody will leave the captaincy in between to focus on batting
He said- I do not agree that someone who has captained for two and a half years should leave the captaincy in the middle of the tournament to concentrate on batting. I believe that you do this based on the happiness and resentment of the team management. this is not right.
Changing the captain in the middle of the tournament is not right
At the same time, former cricketer Irfan Pathan has said that it is not the right time to change the captaincy between the tournaments. Hopefully, KKR won’t deviate from the path. KKR leads the playoffs.
