Kolkata Knight Riders made five changes for the contest against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2022. The management included Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Pat Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy, and Sheldon Jackson in the playing XI. KKR have failed miserably in the tournament after starting on a good note in the 15th season.
Cricket experts feel too many changes have impacted the performance, and former India cricketer Aakash Chopra also opined on the matter. He slammed the two-time champions for replacing five players for the ongoing contest against the Rohit Sharma-led team.
“Don’t know what is wrong with them. They have made a bizarre team selection for the game against MI. It seems all is not well within the franchise, and their regular chopping of the cricketers has impacted their performance. After starting on a brilliant note, the Kolkata-based team has suffered big defeats in the tournament,” he said.
