The team’s first match is in Chennai against SunRisers Hyderabad on April 11.
Karthik was KKR’s captain until halfway through the group stage last season when they switched to England’s 2019 World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan. Morgan is expected to lead KKR this season as well.
The IPL is set to begin on April 9, with the final scheduled to be played on May 30.
