did anyone else see it last night? during the super over, after gayle cut the ball to third man, mashrafi intercepted the ball before it crossed the boundary and flung it back like he was trying to cause a matchwinning run out.

and then buchanan had a quiet word while mashrafi sheepishly nodded.

judging from the character of john buchanan, this could be used as another reason to keep mashrafi out of the team. when i saw mashrafi intercept the ball, my heart fell. he must be really eager to get a touch of that cricket ball, but did anyone else feel squeamish when they saw the incident?

Ye I remember I saw it, I got happy for a moment seeing Mash smiling and beig told something by Buchanan probably something like "if you touch that ball again your not even going to get a game" I really hope they pick him for next game otherwise KKR can kiss my ***

I saw the incident and was a bit angry with Mash. I expect a bit more of a personality from him than doing a ball-boy and collecting the ball before it crossed the boundary. IMO, that is unprofessional. I do not know the rules; but it is safe NOT to touch the ball that way, especially when you are also a part of one of the teams.

Offcourse he would, he already missed 21% of the tournament (given KKR wont make it to the semis).

KKR batting looks pathetic. After Gayle. McCullum and Ganguly, there is nobody. Yashpal will play today as he scored 20 last time. Mendis did well in the last match would be fourth foreigner.

So Hodge has to go if Mash comes in. In which case they will again have Test players like Bangar or Chopra or have to two completely unknown batsmen who did not play in the earlier matches. Mash's chances doesn't look too bright today too.

In that case, why KKR is spending so much money for Mash?? Pathetic Team Management---just a bunch of a looser!

Agreed with Tintin......after Mendis's last match performance its getting tougher for Mash to get to the XI......KKR not gonna drop Hodge for Mash...simply because they don't have any batsman and Hodge is their vice-captain also. So, Mendis needs to fail badly if Mash wants be close to selecting. Again Lengaveldt is there for the competition. Chances are becoming very slim for Mash getting a single game.

On the other hand, Some consecutive failure of Jaya, Duminy or Bravo (which can happen anytime) can give chance for ASH to be in the XI......anyway many ifs and buts for both ASH and MASH to be selected.....

yea i saw it yesterday... it felt good to see him again... i wish he hadn't picked up that ball... but to hell with buchanan.........

KRR has the worst domestic (Indian) batting .Apart from Ganguli they dont have anyone.As Tintin pointed out its difficult for Mash to replace the 'star batsmen' Hodge.More than anything else Hodge might be picked for the hope that he might fire (which he wont )

But Hodge for a T20 ?? KRR will finish at the borrom .Sharauk Khan should be like the other owners watch from the sidelines rather than act like a Godfather ( read his statement where he feels that the players are like is 'sons" :floor: )

To be honest I rate even better than Mashraffe's batting against Hodge.

What's the quota for having Indian players? 4 or 5?

Edit: Nevermind. It's 7.

he actually did play a few games... didn't do anything spectacular but didn't do badly either.

lets face it though. mashrafi is in the worst quintile for t20 bowlers. can we REALLY blame kkr.

ya right..he's about 50 steps agarkar...

but lets say i do agree with what you are saying about mash being a crappy player in T20..but from what i recall after KKR bought him they were saying we bought him based on his ODI ability..he's been doing so good lately in ODI..so there is no way they can bring in his T20 records in their defense...i think its starting to become clear getting mashrafee was only SRK decision..and the only reason was to get bangladeshi crowd on their side..buchannan had no plan for mashrafee from the beginning...i can't wait till IPL is over..i'm sure we'll hear much more details about the KKR management from mash..

i think bucha has an issue with mashrafi..... and let me guess..... mashrafi wont play in any of the matches..... unless SRK take the law in his own hand and give a filmi kick on bucha's rear..... which is very unlikely.

so guys, stop hoping/watching, mashrafi wont get a game.

No use bitching about Mash's non selection, there are many outstanding bowlers who are sidelined now, e.g. Glen Mcgrath, Paul Collingwood had to return to England without playing one match, but he said that it was a fabulous experience and great practice for him.

I am sure that Mash is practising his bowling and fielding under different coaches and the same can be said about Ash, he is practising his fielding under one of the best fielders in the world, and hopefully learning a few more batting techniques under Shaun Pollock.

They are also getting to mix and interact with players from different countries, improve their English speaking skills and on the whole enjoy the atmosphere of the IPL in SA.
I think that KKR will be knocked out of the competition early, so Mash will return home earlier, but Mumbai Indians might be in the final four. In any case, they will both be in BD for the training camp of the 20/20 World cup squad.

Megh

i ithink that KKR was so keen to not to let Punjab have Mash. i think if Mash was in Punjab then by now at least couple of matches could be in his pocket for sure.

I saw the incident and was a bit angry with Mash. I expect a bit more of a personality from him than doing a ball-boy and collecting the ball before it crossed the boundary. IMO, that is unprofessional. I do not know the rules; but it is safe NOT to touch the ball that way, especially when you are also a part of one of the teams.

you should know that it happens so many many many time even in international match. that time there wasn't a single fielder around there. there was no one so he picked the ball and send back in the field even we see this kinda thing international matches where players stay in the pavillion upstairs and here they stay right next to the rope all-time. so i don't see anything wrong in that. otherwise fielder should go in the crowd to pick up the ball when it hits for six in the stands. Boka-nana(i mean Buchanan) always think of himself the most-known-everything of cricket after being with the Aus for a long time aussie domination and he thinks its him who made this possible. actully that boka-nana doesn't know that not for him, those aussie players don't need anyone to coach them. they are like a cricket book by themselves(ok not all of them but many of them). now i think Sunil Gavaskar said the right thing about buchanan that a player who played only 3/4 first class matches then how come he experiments with cricket this much???

I don't know why are we so mad that Mash isn't playing! Last time I checked, he was bowling off-spinners in Dhaka league due to the injury he was carrying. This non-playing actually benefits him to recover, refresh, and also observe from close quarters the nuances of intl 20/20 cricket. All of our players need the break after having a somewhat busy itenary last year. No complaints from my end.

The rumor is that he wasnt actually injured during the Dhaka league, He just did not want to sustain an injury before IPL and loose out on the 4 crore taka. Just a rumor tho...

Amen.

Also, looks like the Indian players aren't really that much better then the Indian players who played in ICL. So, technically, aside from the foreign players and the Indian national players, there's not much of a difference between IPL and ICL. Let's also remember that it's 20/20 and such, the difference in quality isn't a big factor.

Go ICl, GO MASH and ASH.

Sometimes humans are suppose to make judgement calls. If the ball was surely gonna touch the rope than it really doesnt matter if mash picked it up from inside or outside. Ball boys sometimes pick the ball from inside the field. Provided that no other fielder could get to the ball, it is not a big deal.

But.... but....if one takes Zeno's paradox into account, the ball could never reach the boundary rope as it takes half the distant to reach the rope, and for THAT to reach, it has to traverse half the distant and for THAT to reach, it has to reach half of that distant and so on ad iniftum....

So what if MAsh gave away 4 runs where there was none. :(
