Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) skipper Dinesh Karthik became the 12th player in IPL history to reach 3,000 runs.

Karthik thus joined an elite league, comprising of Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, David Warner, Robin Uthappa, Chris Gayle and others.
Another franchise, added responsibility
Karthik led KKR to a win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in his first match as their captain before losing the next two, against Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
