Deep Dasgupta says “It is necessary that time is given” in the Indian Premier League. Deep outlined the importance of giving the captain an appropriate amount of time. KKR has appeared a force to be reckoned with the 2021 IPL. Also, following their ruthless wins over Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. The two-time winners have come into the second leg of IPL. Also, an aggressive approach enters back-to-back commanding wins. The franchise is back into contention for a spot. In the playoffs following a dismal first half in India.
He’s great to push with Eoin Morgan as captain. Despite a poor start to his leadership turn in the right approach.
“Whenever a new captain comes in, it is necessary that time is given. Also for the players, to understand their captain, to understand his needs, and adapt accordingly. This has become an age where captains are changed for the tiniest of reasons. This is where tike comes into play, he needs it to understand his players and execute his vision,” Dasgupta said.
Kolkata Knight Riders are aiming to compete. Also, in the playoffs following successive fifth-spot finishes. Dasgupta recognizes how the change in KKR’s brand of cricket. He has been a measured one. The franchise undergoes a rather poor run in the second half of the 2020 Indian Premier League. It could only register two wins in the first half of the ongoing season.
“This change has not happened overnight, this has taken around a year. This break has definitely benefitted the players because, from a player’s perspective, they also need time to switch to a different brand of cricket because every captain leads differently,” Deep Dasgupta said.
Lastly, Dinesh Karthik stepped down from the captaincy role. In the mid-way through last season with Morgan taking over. He continues to act as vice-captain and has spoken of the good camaraderie. Also, shares with Morgan on the field.
