Former India cricketer and one of the leading commentators, Aakash Chopra, questioned the selection strategy of Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2022. Aakash feels KKR are treating players like nappies, and the regular changes in the playing XI have led to their downfall.

They retained Venkatesh Iyer and Varun Chakravarthy for the 15th season of the tournament, but the two have been dropped after a few failures.

“They are treating players like nappies. As we change a baby’s nappies now and then, the two-time champions have done the same with their players. Where is Venkatesh Iyer and Varun Chakravarthy? They were retained for the new season but have been dropped. This shows what is wrong with the Kolkata-based franchise,” he said.

KKR have lost seven matches in the ongoing edition and are on the verge of elimination from the playoff race.
