Three years ago, when Dinesh Karthik took over as the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, he had a tough task in hand. Stepping into the shoes of Gautam Gambhir — who guided the team to two Indian Premier League titles — wasn’t going to be an easy task, but Karthik tried handling things, his way.

While Knights finished third in 2018, it failed to make it to the play-offs the following year. And in 2020, when the tournament was held in the United Arab Emirates, Knights missed out on the last-four stage, finishing fifth. And in the mid-season, Eoin Morgan replaced Karthik as the captain of KKR. As another season beckons, Karthik aims to guide the team to ‘at least’ the playoffs. In a chat with Sportstar, the Indian international speaks about the season and his expectations.
