Kolkata Knight Riders vs. Bangalore Royal Chalengers





When: April 29, 2009. 12:30 local time (10:30 GMT)
Where: Durban, South Africa
What: Mash's first match in the IPL Tournament ;) (hopefully)

I have a feeling this will be Mash's first match in IPL. Let's hope he plays and takes advantage of a fairly weak Bangalore team.

Ajfar
April 28, 2009, 01:45 PM
i just hope mash can live up to the expectation..they will probably give him only one chance unlike others players which is really not fair to him..

Farhad
April 28, 2009, 02:04 PM
I've gotta say, i am extremely surprised to see that Mash hasnt been given a chance yet. $600000 is no joke. Heres hoping he'll get his chance against Bangalore...

The thing going against Mashrafe is his T20 bowling average and economy

He is averaging over 51 and has an economy over 9 an over. From 9 match, he took only 6 wickets with a strike rate over 33. KKR shouldn't have bought him for that much anyway. If they knew before that IPL will be shift to South Africa, they wouldn't buy him. They bought him because they had Bangladesh in mind that time.

Faisal

i think they didn't expect anybody else to bid for mashrafe but even than they could have easily backed away from the bidding..because tamim and sakib was up for grab as well only for $50,000..i guess they didn't want king's punjab to have mashrafee than they would have to share the bangladeshi audience between themselves and kings punjab

Shakib and Tamim are not heartthrob of Bangladesh cricket. They are not in the same level of Mash as of yet. Not even Ash.

tiger_omar

Mendis had a bit of trouble last game. Hopefully Mash can replace him. Unfortunatly, I don't see Mash replacing anyone else, even though McCullum nor Hodge has done anything special so far, specially McCullum. If this guy wasn't the captain, I think that he would have missed a game with his terrible form.

Mashrafe wont play this game, but he'll definately play the next one coz this is Gayle's last match,after this he goes and Mash comes in...

Mashrafe playing or not, this time I am with KKR. Bangalore did much worse with Razzak.

nzfan
April 29, 2009, 03:14 AM
I think what works against Mash is his lack of willingness to bowl at the death. He may lead the Bangladesh pace attack and is allowed to dictate terms, but he can't do the same in the ipl


And Mccullum would never be dropped even if he is in terrible form batting( not really he is like ashraful, comes off once in a blue moon, this is the norm), he is one of the worlds best keepers

Baundule
April 29, 2009, 03:16 AM
I predict, Mashrafe will play today. Hodge may be replaced. It does not make sense to play an out of form player matches after matches. WP Saha can replace Hodge.

KKR selectors r so stupid... even if they dont play mash i can understand that (however frustrated i would be)... but why do they pick anureet singh when the guy is sooo bad and yet they leave out murali kartik and agarkar

Their team balance is so bad as well, they have so many quality bowlers and so few quality indian batsmen, doesnt make any sense... Saha is one guy that can actually play a few shots and score some runs, he should play and i hope mash gets an opportunity... but truth be told, for all their quality bowlers they still dont take enough wickets and mcculum has to stop bowling ganguly out of sympathy and follow his true instincts

Baundule
April 29, 2009, 05:51 AM
I am supporting KKR, because of the Razzak case. Mashrafe will play some matches for sure.
Today KKR will win, because Bangalore has even a worse management. For today's match, they have left both Jesse and Ross out of the XI. Actually, these are the two real match winners in the team. Hodge will probably play better today to ensure playing the next 7 matches.

Calling Hidge a test player is an insult to the art of batting. Slow poke he may be, but to be a test batsman, one needs fortitude of mind, sound technique and never ending stamina. If that potato had those qualitiese, he'd be in Dubai.

Baundule
April 29, 2009, 06:23 AM
Hodge is actually an excellent T20 player. We hate him because he is fulfilling one of the foreign players' slot. ;)

The mis-management of KKR also shows up in his failure. I have never seen him playing being so much over-cautious.

yes, because of a weak set of local players (both batsmen and bowlers), they are in complete mess. Also, because of mis-management they can not produce players like Kamran out of nowhere.

Yeh like Hodge and Duck McCullum make a huge difference....not!

they already have the worst batting, might as well give some indian youths and concentrate on strengthening the bowling.

If you can limit the opponent to under 150 you dont need decent batters to make that target in 20 overs with 10 wickets.

Orpheus
May 11, 2009, 05:56 PM
Why?


No reason. Keeping expectation low. I really wanna see him crush some wickets - so Boka nana and whoever behind his exclusion learn their lesson.

The only three things I wanna see in KKR are mendis, masrafee, and ganguly as the captain. too bad their local batsman are crap - so it was understandable to some extent why Mash was left out..

Mash should be allowed to play as a local boy, if they were making Bangladesh a second home for kkr, why not let mash fill one of the local quota.

and I am sure this point has already been discussed somewhere, so apology in advance if it is a repeat.

Cant see Mashrafee having a game today . Cricinfo predicts David Hussey will replace Brad hodge which of course is unthinkable . Bokanaaaan would want to strenghten his batting and and as always , is convinced he has enough firepower in his bowling . So , NO Mortaza today . Lets hope I am wrong .

if not today...then never ! Even the commentators have criticized Bocha Nana for not playing Mash or Langeveltd ! KKR could have won few matches if they werent filled with so many batsmen and no quality bowler at all !!

This is Cricinfo's probably

Kolkata Knight Riders: (probable) 1 Brendon McCullum (capt), 2 Sourav Ganguly, 3 David Hussey, 4 Morne van Wyk, 5 Yashpal Singh, 6 Wriddhiman Saha, 7 Laxmi Ratan Shukla, 8 Ajit Agarkar, 9 Murali Kartik, 10 Mashrafe Mortaza, 11 Ishant Sharma.

Hope its true! Keeping my fingers crossed :S

Just seeing his name in the probable 11 makes me feel a little better...but i reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllyyyyyyyy y hope he plays I mean who doesn't?:-p, he must be IPL's most expensive bench warmer:(

Since Mash was bought with huge amount, they do not spend more now on. I guess, if Mash wasnt bought with so much money then he might have been given a chance to play ! it sounds very pathetic !

12.20pm: Right interesting comeback for Mendis, who has not played since he got hammered in the Super Over against Rajasthan, and got so royally dismantled by Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya. Mashrafe will soon become part of the IPL version of Dire Straits, and join the likes of Pul Collingwood in singing... you know what

Samir adds: "No Bangladeshies are supporting KKR at them moment and they feel happy if KKR looses! And its true they failed to gain support from 150M people." Even as Moe rolls on the floor while visualising Mash and Collingwood sing Money for Nothing.

18.5 Vinay Kumar to McCullum, FOUR, McCullum you beauty, repeats the daylight robbery, Vinay tries the yorker this time, but McCullum gets across again, and scoops it between keeper and fine leg

18.4 Vinay Kumar to McCullum, FOUR, lovely shot, the perfect scoop, walks across, gets into the infamous Misbah-esque posture, and scoops it over, straight over, the wicketkeeper's head

You pick an extra batsman from INdian squad. They have about 50 people there. They have 3 keepers. Saha, vanwyk and McCullum. What exactly McCullum did? Nothing. dropped a few sitters and scored poorly. If you think mortaza should replace only similar position he could not replace anyone. Because mostly they were batsmen. He cannot take Indian players spot. He can take only foreign player spot.

There will be furious debate over McCullum's captaincy.

But who chose those bowlers in the first place - Angelo Mathews ahead of Mashrafe Mortaza, Ajit Agarkar ahead of Ashok Dinda?

It has been the most satisfying match for me to watch in this IPL.

McCullum gets it going = I like this guy; Buchanan tried his best to spoil him and a performance will save him from Buchanan accusing him for all the losses.
Mendis performs well = He is a class act. He should be an automatic choice for any team. His good performance again proves Buchanan's blunders.
Murali Karthik performs = Buchanan seems to have some issues with him. So, it is good that he did well.
The speedstars fail = Agarkar is pure rubbish, as always. But Ishant was superb in his first three overs. He broke down in his last.
Mathews got some beating = He was chosen ahead of Mashrafe. A good performance might make Buchanan a hero.
Ross Taylor performs = This is another cricketing basic. Do not drop your match-winner. Taylor may have some bad patch here and there. But on his day he can win from any situation. If RCB were persistent with Jesse and Ross, they would have found 4 points more by now.
Uthappa out = Man, if he was going to stay for another two overs, RCB was sure to lose the match.
KKR lost the match from an unbelievably comfortable position.
I can not expect more than that.

Guys, Everyone who is watching the IPL this year both Indians and us are really out of words about what is going on with Buchanan and his crazy antics. I mean common all cricinfo commentators are asking why did Buchanan chose Angelo Mathews over Mashrafe even Ravi Sharsthi said in the last game why is Buchanan not playing Mashrafe but instead were playing Hendriques etc. My favorite comment from Cricinfo was the closing comment of the game where the commentator said Who the hell is in charge of choosing the team I mean Angelo Matthews over Mortaza and Charles Langevalt
