KKR has been chopping and changing players all through the campaign, making as many as five lineup changes against the Mumbai Indians on Tuesday.

‘If they win, the CEO is praised; if they lose, the CEO is blamed’: Ajay Jadeja

Former India cricketer Ajay Jadeja stated that remarks were not surprising because KKR CEO Venky Mysore is known to be involved in the team’s management.

“It comes as no surprise.” This is the executive team. If they win, the CEO is praised; if they lose, the CEO is punished. This has always been the case, and we’ve seen examples of that before,” Jadeja stated on Cricbuzz.

“There are many differing viewpoints; some believe he should not be participating.” Some believe that the coach should not be engaged and that the captain should make the decision. Some even believe that “leave the captain be,” because “you never know if he will be around or not,” and that “let the CEO decide” Ajay Jadeja Added.

On Monday, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) by 52 runs at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai in Match 56 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season.
