MI vs KKR: The former Indian cricketer has a point of view and it is clear from the management’s decisions that the new captain Shreyas Iyer is not happy.
- Became poor last year’s finalist
- KKR did not like the new captaincy
- There was no wisdom in the decisions of the management
Kolkata Knight Riders made five changes in the XI before the match against Mumbai Indians on Monday. And at the same time, this team has made a record of testing the players in the tournament itself, but despite being so full, KKR has not yet found its right combination. And this is what impressed KKR the most in the journey so far and the team of the last season has become a complete poor this time and former cricketer Mohammad Kaif has made important comments about these conditions.
Kaif said that looking from the outside, the equation or coordination between captain Shreyas Iyer and coach Brendon McClem does not look right. The former batsman said in a conversation with a website that it is not that KKR did not have players. He had players, but they were not fed and the management made too many changes in the final XI. And these changes worked to create a lot of pressure.

Kaif said that when this happens, players find it difficult to play in such an environment. T20 is a format where you can do better under pressure. You have to play your shots, take wickets. In such a situation, when such situations happen, then one cannot play under pressure. He said that the KKR management will have to take the blame for the situation as they have made too many changes.

Regarding the atmosphere of the dressing room, Kaif said that I remember a match, which was against Rajasthan and Chahal scored a hat-trick in it. When Iyer was out, coming towards the dugout, he stopped briefly and spoke with McCullum. Kaif said that it was clear that Iyer was not happy about anything. Maybe it could be Pat Cummins’s batting order. It was the initial phase of KKR’s defeat. It showed that all is not well between the captain and the coach. Kaif said that if a player of calm nature like Iyer starts asking questions, then it is a big deal. It spoils the atmosphere.
