The runner-up of the 2021 edition of the Indian T20 League, Kolkata made an early exit this season. The franchise found a new skipper in Shreyas Iyer for the new season. Under his leadership, Kolkata had started well but couldn’t maintain the winning momentum.

They, eventually, finished the season at the number 7 position with 6 wins in 14 matches. So, what went wrong for Kolkata? In this article, we will be talking about three reasons why Kolkata failed to win the Indian T20 League 2022:

  1. Too many chopping and changes

Interestingly, as many as 20 players had played at least a single game in the first 12 matches for Kolkata. There wasn’t a single match when Kolkata’s playing XI was retained for the first 12 games. Despite the early wins, it never looked like a settled unit because of the changes they made.

Historically, teams haven’t won titles when they have made a lot of changing and chopping in the playing XI and Kolkata too had to pay the price for that. The runner-up of the 2021 edition, Kolkata faced an early elimination this season.
