Prasidh Krishna was dropped by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) after one terrible over at the death, according to Aakash Chopra. He emphasized that the skipper who made a mistake in his bowler selection did not have to suffer the consequences.
Ravindra Jadeja smacked Krishna for two fours and as many sixes. In the penultimate over of KKR’s last match against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). In the Eoin Morgan-led side’s starting XI for Tuesday’s IPL 2021 match against the Delhi Capitals. The Bengaluru-born seamer was replaced by Sandeep Warrier (DC).
Morgan did not have to face the repercussions for his poor captaincy and lack of impact with the bat according to Aakash Chopra, who reflected on KKR’s team selection in a video posted.
“Prasidh Krishna bowled just the one bad over. No one says anything to the one who got him to bowl that over. Neither does he score runs nor does anyone say anything to him,” he said
“He can do anything but Prasidh Krishna dropped and Sandeep Warrier plays. I am happy that Sandeep Warrier played but Prasidh Krishna gets dropped after one match. I don’t agree with that at all,” he added
In yesterday’s Indian Premier League match, Warrier only got to bowl two overs. Despite Lockie Ferguson’s absence, he did not appear to be a threat and was not given the ball at the death.
“Russell was not there, so who could have been there in place of him. I had given you the option of Ben Cutting, Shakib Al Hasan, and Pawan Negi. I had not given one option for sure, I had said that they cannot play Southee because he is not a like-to-like replacement. The batting becomes weak, you will not have the depth because Russell is not just a bowler.” He reasoned
