Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Dinesh Karthik today won the toss and elected to field against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match played at the Eden Gardens.
“I’m glad they chose me (as captain). Unfortunately we lose Kane, but the good thing is he’ll be back for the next match. Warner has returned,” Bhuvneshwar said after the toss.
For the visitors, Warner returns to IPL cricket after serving a one-year ban for ball-tampering in South Africa last year. KKR, meanwhile, handed new recruit Lockie Ferguson a start.
