View Full Version : KKR Controversy - Worst fears coming true

Before the IPL started i was questioning myself how this multi captain policy will affect KKR. Seems from the result today it has destroyed the team more than my expectation. Shahrukh khan brought too much unwanted attention to the team and handed too much power to Buchanan because of his personal differences with Ganguly.

And mashrafe's treatment is thoroughly unprofessional. I am glad in a way that he didn't play, he was injured and hasn't bowled fast, he is totally de moralized because of this issue, he never bats well in SA, and he is playing in a team which has imploded from within and doesn't really have the firepower other teams has.

What do you reckon KKR's chances are now?

First of all this is one match. Second I doubt multiple captains had much to do with such a crappy result.

However I am worried with Mash's treatment.

I am now wishing that Mash was bought by Punjab, even if he didn't play I am sure they would at least give him a contract. These bunch of fool KKR can't even be bothered to keep the word in giving him a contract at least.

I just couldn't describe how angry I am about their treatment with our Mashrafe Mortaza. Everyone knows why the contact is not signed yet. Pure cheating. King Khan? From now on I will call him CHEATER Khan.

According to PA, Ashraful's contact was also not signed yet. Cheaters everywhere.

Sometimes I feel that Mash and Ash should have left IPL as a mark of protest. But what's the point? If I were in their shoes, I would have thought like this, "I am having a free tour to SA, meeting world stars+ whatever I can get will be enough."

People like Sharukh Khan create garbage films in Bolywood and make them hit by hook or by crook. Thanks to third grade audience all over the world.

He should understand that cricket is a real life challenge where you need to perform in real time. It is no nautanki.

If he had the courage of eliminating Ganguly completely by talking to him, that would have been much better than insulting him by stripping him for captaincy and insulting Gavaskar etc .

At 37, I can not justify Ganguly's being there if he's not the Captain.

I really really don't understand that. I thought atleast the team composition will be discussed and there will be amusement over the selection of the most FALTU selection I have ever seen in my life through Moises Henriques, but NOooo.. Wtf is going on? Have indian journalists lost it? Forget Mashrafe, why not atleast ponder over the selection of Mendis or Langevelt? Come on cricinfo, You can do better than that. Most pissinf off website in my opinion. arghh

Crapinfo is run by Indian journalists. Indian media will not say anything against the BCCI. But KKR will have to pay the price in big, especially after Dada's omission from the captaincy. About Mash's contract, he has to establish himself as a professional. He is there not to get a sympathy contract; but to be paid for his abilities. BCB should also come forward to this matter. If players from other countries, auctioned at the same time, are getting contract, they should also do the same for Mash and Ash.

I personally don't want Mashrafee to play at all given the way he was treated . I would rather have him injury free and preserve all his energy for the T20 world cup and teach India /BCCI/(whoever is involved) a lesson.

Mash just get that check of 600K and return home ASAP . I hate to see you in that filthy KKR jersey.

April 20, 2009, 06:19 AM
you guys are way too fatalistic ! :rolleyes:

mash will certainly play in one of the next 2 matches, and more depending on performance. ash might find it difficult to break into his team's final 11 though. that much was clear even before the IPL started.

and cricinfo is run by ESPN, an american cable TV company, it's not indian in any sense. :doh: sure it has a few indians but that doesn't make it indian. next you'll claim pepsi is indian because its CEO is indian. :lol:

about the real indian media, don't even expect any amount of impartiality or objectivity, it's total crap, through and through.

have a laugh though !!

Rajasthan Royals team owner Shilpa Shetty has expressed her delight at her team's great start to the tournament. :floor: "Yay! We won!! Isn't that coooooool?", she chirruped gleefully, clapping her hands and jumping up and down with delight. When someone pointed out to her that the Royals had, in fact, been soundly walloped by the Royal Challengers, she seemed a bit confused. "What? We lost? But then why is everyone saying that the Royals are the champions? You must be mistaken," she cooed.

Kings XI Punjab co-owner Preity Zinta, not to be outdone, also made sure she contributed to her team's efforts by over-enthusastically waving a flag and grinning from ear to ear, even as Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir made a mockery of the target. "Don't you love this weather? Ideal for a random rain song", she gushed, desperate to demonstrate how much she was enjoying the whole thing.

IPL chief Lalit Modi also expressed his happiness with the way the tournament has kicked off. "We are delighted that we were able to squeeze in the tactical breaks, even in a rain-shortened match," he grinned with a trademark wink. He also said that, in the future, even the tactical breaks will have a title sponsor of their own. "Just like 'Citi Moment of Success', and 'DLF Maximum Sixes', we plan to introduce sponsored events such as 'TVS Tactical Break', 'Reebok Run-Chase', and 'Dominos Dot-Ball'", said Mr Modi to a stunned audience. When a reporter asked if this didn't amount to rampant commercial exploitation, Mr Modi shot back "You mean 'Coca-cola commercial exploitation'. If you fail to mention the sponsor's name, I will hit you with a 'Lays Lawsuit'". This makes the IPL the first event in the world to commercially exploit the entity of "commercial exploitation" itself. Sources have revealed that for the next season even the sponsors themselves may be sponsored - opening up the possibility of sponsored brands such as "Pepsi Coca-Cola", and "Blackberry Nokia".

Most are in agreement, however, that the IPL is a success. "When you see Arun Lal in a commercial, you know that the money is really flowing", said a financial analyst, before trotting off to sell the IP rights to his just-uttered quote for a few crores.

Well who was worthy in our team to play in the first version???? Ash, Mash, Tamim were probably the only ones (sakib hadn't broken through yet). Like honestly, our team sucks... our players arn't that good (baring 2 or 3 of them). OBVIOUSLY they won't sign our players.

As you saw this year, they did sign two of ours (not sure why sakib didnt get picked). Now ash doesnt really deserve to play in first xi, so it makes sense that he has not played. As for mash, if the IPL was held in india, I'm sure he would have played. I mean main reason they paid 600k for him was marketing him to the BD crowd. They can't do that in SA.

Is there any reason for you to belive (except for some stupid reports from a stupid 'news'paper) that Mash could be cheated out of his money.

As I understand it KRR has a legal binding to pay him the money whether he plays a single match or not.Mash has already represented KRR in the practice matches.

I am pretty sure KRR is not waiting to rob Mash of his 600k.Mind you KRR's 'bought' Mash for such a huge price with an eye on BD's market.Of all the 'buys' ,Mash's makes the most business sense to me ...

Hold on guys Mash will get his chance with the '4 foreigner' rule its difficult to break through.Murali was left out and so was Kallis !

As mod: please desist from making ad-hominem attacks on a country or group. If you have issues with a certain action or decision, criticize that and the factors behind it.

As myself: y'all need to take a chill pill. Do a decision tree. Worst case scenario. Mash doesn't play, doesn't get paid and picks up an injury in practice. Well, the 2nd is not going to happen. He'll get more money than he's earned ever because if not 600K, he'll still get ducats. Mash _will_ prolly play a few - if Moises H can get a game, well than I wouldn't worry. Injury has happened when he's climbing stairs - so that you can't stop one way or the other. At any rate, through out this, he's picking up lots of skills and there are worse things in life than a pissed off Mashrafee coming back from SA with a point to prove.

Abirz
April 20, 2009, 08:54 PM
Well since there are only 4 places for foreign players, McCullum and Gayle will definately take up 2 of those, then KKR will play Mendis in the following games after seeing that spinners and slow-armers are the most succesful bowlers from the past couple of matches...so that only leaves 1 empty slot for another foreign player,Moises Henriques wont be chosen anymore so its either gonna be Brad Hodge or Mashrafe.

But the problem is that Brad Hodge was their top scorer last match, while everybody was giving their wickets away Hodge played a crucial knock which is hugely going to favor him ahead of Mashrafe.
Hodge is also a slow off-break bowler,which is self-explanatory why thats an advantage in this years IPL.
The only way Mash will be chosen ahead of Hodge is if KKR opt for a fast bowler instead of a batsmen who was their highest scorer in the last match and also bowls slow off-breaks and also played their last years IPL while Mash will be debuting...ahem i don't see any light at the end of the tunnel :floor:

Let us take it professionally. If McGrath can sit out two consecutive matches, why not Mash? IPL is nothing but for earning some money. We should care more about the Mash contract and getting the money, irrespective of they are playing or not. Simply being in the team offers a great experience.

They are having to open the bowling with an unknown bowler like Yusuf Abdullah. Mash would've played every game for Panjab. I hope all this blogging nonsense doesn't affect Mash's chances of playing.

One more cricket story that is turning into a bit of a cricket controversy is that of Mashrafe Mortaza (Mashrafe Mortaza - ) not being offered contract to sign thus far. This claim has been rubbished by KKR CEO Joy Bhattacharya as ‘absurd’ as he pointed out that the KKR team had obtained Mortaza at a high price and after some heavy bidding so that the franchisees were hardly likely not to have signed him on yet.

KOLKATA: The KKR management have vehemently denied a media report which claimed that Bangladesh all-rounder Mashrafe Mortaza has not been handed a contract.

Mortaza was the surprise catch during the IPL players' auction earlier this year when he was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders for $600,000.

Mortaza told a Bangladesh daily that he had not yet been given a contract. "They have been telling me that I will be signing the contract soon but it hasn't happened so far. I'm hoping that it will happen soon. Apart from the contract issue, I am enjoying my stay in Bloemfontein," Mashrafe has been quoted as saying by Dhaka-based Bengali daily Prothom Alo in their Sunday edition.

"This is absurd. I don't know from where these baseless rumours have been floated. How can one even think that we have not signed a player of Mashrafe's stature? After all, we bought Mashrafe at the IPL auction at a high price after intense bidding. Why should we do such a thing?" KKR's chief executive officer Joy Bhattacharya said.

i bet now that the media reports are out..they will try to quickly sign the contract and try to put everything under the rug...

frankly, i dont think kkr think-tank(if there is any) is aware of mashrafi's ability, he must be one of the biggest hitters in the game. similar players like irfan pathan are doing very well for their team. in a 20-20 where a few sixers can change the game, or 1-2 wicket in an over and mash can do both, how can they keep him out?

it sounds funny because they have bought him with that much money just to warm the bench now it seems, but i suspect there is no proper decision making structure within the team, there is bucha, there is mccullum, there is srk and then there is ganguli.

i've been reading some posts saying 'mash should just collect the 600k'.

mash would get 600k if he played every match. the amount players get out of the ipl is:

(what the player was purchased for at the auction) divided by (how many matches he played).

No, it is

(what the player was purchased for at the auction) * (forhow many matches he was available/total number of matches that the team plays)

ie, unless he is away on national duties or is injured, he will get the full pay.

Let's not get carried away. He's definitely one of the biggest hitters by BD standards but by no means is he in the world's top 10 or 15! For one thing - his tonking ability only extends to spinners and medium pacers. Anything 85 mph or higher he is depressingly inept! When I think of big hitters in the game right now, these are some of the names that come to mind:
Symond
Hayden
Jaya
Gillie
Yusuf Pathan
Shewag
Flintoff
Albie Morkel
Gayle
Oram
Afridi
Dhoni
...
As you can see - I've got quite a few bowlers in there as well as specialist batters. Mash should make the side as a good medium pacer who can get you a few.

I guess what you are trying to say is:

(what the player was purchased for at the auction) divided by (the total number of matches, which is 59) multiplied by (how many matches he played)

No its not.

Read the PA interview. Mash says if he is fit for the next 2 years he can earn himself more than Tk. 8 crores. Its not about how many matches he plays its about his avalability for KKR.

Otherwise why would Mash or even Ash for that matter risk getting nothing after spending a month with their IPL teams when they can be playing in PCL where both of them are certain to play all the matches. And if Tamim can fetch Tk. 10 lakhs, Ash and Mash could potentially earn Tk. 15 lakhs.

I just want to see either Mash or Ashraful play few games and do well. I don't care if Mashrafee gets 600 k or 50 K - how is that gonna be good to me? I wanna see some action.

I think it is our bad luck that there has been a bidding war (good luck of mash) - other wise mash would almost be playing all of punjab games.. they seriously need a competent bowler.

This team is such a joke. What do you expect when you have 50 players in your squad? I wish Mash had signed up for Panjab. They are having to open the bowling with an unknown bowler like Yusuf Abdullah. Mash would've played every game for Panjab. I hope all this blogging nonsense doesn't affect Mash's chances of playing. Next season Mashrafe should put in a transfer request.

They ARE not having to bowl with an unknown bowler in Abdulla. They bought him, he is a saffer, has the one of the best economy rates in 20/20 cricket history of around 5/6, hence why they bought him. Anyway i agree, Mash would have got a few games for punjab more than KRR.

Right. Sitting in bench is = playing/available, for payments.

Would love to see them playing. KKR is really missing out on Mash, they are the weakest team ATM and Mash could be useful. By the time they understand his potential, they will be out of competitive range in IPL.

They got him after reaching SA. I doubt if they would have taken him, if Mash was there. Infact Mash would have played until Sri / Lee comes back for sure.

I seriously want Mash to apply for a transfer request to Punjab, hell with KKR , they've got one of the crappiest teams and the few "stars" they've got and horribly out of form.
Still on top of all these problems ,KKR wont play Mash.
He'll get a lot of games in Punjab and that team has very good players also.

well since its only a year contract..that means another franchise has to sign him again next year...if not maybe he'll be put on the auction list..whatever happens i just wanna see him play..its really not fair to him..he was bowling off spin at the end of DPL so he won't get injured before the IPL..and this is what he gets..

Are you sure? May be for BD & Ind local players.

I don't think that others will agree to that. Because they are making themselves available for the match & playing or not playing is the team management's decision not the player's.

However that's not fair I guess.

Oh yes, Mash would be fine even without any money from KKR/IPL.

For many of us, this is still a huge amount of money; but the fact is, the rest 120000 is lost because of the cheating of KKR. I know how it feels, when the tax rate increases or decreases by even 1%. Really feel sorry for Mash and as usual the BCB is dealing the matter like they having no backbone. Why on earth they accepted such a delay and did not pressurise the KKR?

That may turn out to be better than playing a few games because there is a huge fine for time wasting.

The first time, the captain is fined. The second time, the fine is 20K per head ($220K in all). The third time, it is 30K per head. The fourth time, Ashraful will have to sell his house.

Lordie wants Bangla Tiger to be drafted in. Skipper seems to be agreeing. Bhookha has not openly disagreed. But that means that Junta will have to sit out and Style Bhai will come in. Now, whether Bhookha swallows his pride and lets it happen today is a different matter altogether.

Add to that, the injury issue. ;)
If doing nothing than warming the bench gives me 80% of the money, that's pretty fine. No stress, no facing bouncers, no scope for a criticism and always the high hope of the fans that I could have done wonders. :D

Captain is already fined. Tendu will be extra careful next time. I think this is the reason why he mostly used the spinners in the last game against KKR.

Meanwhile, the always interesting Kolkata Knight Riders have reportedly invited New Zealand coach Andy Moles as an "observer" to, er, observe the team's methods. Moles has claimed he is with KKR to learn about how to achieve success in the Twenty20 format, and to help New Zealand prepare for the upcoming Twenty20 world cup. "New Zealand has plenty in common with the KKR. A New Zealander as captain. Lack of success. Predominantly black uniforms. Absolutely no help from John Buchanan," :lol: said Moles with a sly wink. "More than 'observer', perhaps I should be called 'voyeur', since I'm basically here to watch KKR getting *&%$#," he added a bit naughtily.

Is there any reason for you to belive (except for some stupid reports from a stupid 'news'paper) that Mash could be cheated out of his money.

As I understand it KRR has a legal binding to pay him the money whether he plays a single match or not.Mash has already represented KRR in the practice matches.

I am pretty sure KRR is not waiting to rob Mash of his 600k.Mind you KRR's 'bought' Mash for such a huge price with an eye on BD's market.Of all the 'buys' ,Mash's makes the most business sense to me ...

Hold on guys Mash will get his chance with the '4 foreigner' rule its difficult to break through.Murali was left out and so was Kallis !

nice post.
