Kolkata: After playing the role of commentator in England, Dinesh Karthik has joined the Kolkata Knight Riders squad for the rest of the 14th IPL. He is one of the most important players in KKR. He has also served as the captain of the team. Before the next episode of the IPL, Karthik says that the squad is in a very good position and the players have to come to terms with each other and do the rest and make a difference from the other teams.
“Overall, we are in a very good position as a team,” said Karthik. This time we have to make a difference by tying ourselves together. To qualify, we want to win six of the remaining seven matches.
Kartik’s statement has been highlighted on KKR’s website. Karthik said that one has to think of one match and go ahead and win six of the remaining seven matches.
The 2020 season was short-lived in qualifying for the playoffs. Last year, the Naid Brigade finished fifth in terms of net run rate. This time, KKR will want to leave behind the failure of last season in the United Arab Emirates.
Karthik said he could not make it to the playoffs for a short while in the UAE last year. The more matches the last team won, the more matches we won. But did not get a place in the playoffs for a while. Twice in a row we finished in fifth place. This is still bothering me.
KKR did not perform very well in the first round of this year’s IPL. Won only two out of seven. However, Karthik said the team needs to continue with a positive attitude and play offensive cricket.
Karthik said KKR is known for playing aggressive and positive cricket. I want to continue this trend in the second episode. I still think the team spirit is in a very good place. We have a positive mindset and the coach of the team always conveys positive thoughts.
“We want to play cricket that will make the fans proud and put a smile on their faces,” Karthik said.
Note that the next episode of this year’s IPL will start on September 19 with the match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. The last match of the league is between RCB and Delhi Capitals on October 7.
