IPL 2018: 4 reasons why KKR chose Dinesh Karthik and not Robin Uthappa as Captain
#2 Captaincy experience
The biggest thing that went in Karthik’s favour was his captaincy experience.
Having captained Tamil Nadu to the title victory in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2009-10 and India Red in the 2017 Duleep Trophy, Karthik is no greenhorn when it comes to leading the side.
Even in the shortest format of the game, he has already proven his captaincy credentials by leading TUTI Patriots to the title in the 2016 edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League.
On the contrary, Uthappa hasn’t had any major captaincy assignment other than leading India A for a slim span, five years back in 2013.
