Match Preview


We flew in to Durban today. This tour now seems like a hazy, repetitive dream. We wake up, go to the ground, get bashed around, return, go to sleep, wake up, fly into another city, get bashed around again, go to sleep... and the sequence continues. Will this ever end? Will I ever wake up? Chatterjee Kaku, jabaab deen.

After several false alarms, Calypso finally left us. Although, we didn't quite get the party he promised, it was nice of him to stay back for the extra game. A game in which he scored 17, went wicketless and dropped a sitter. Thanks for staying, Maan.

Skipper has promised some of the benchwarmers a chance in the next few games. Hope I get one too. Will keep you guys posted.

Struggling Kolkata have the added headache of finding a replacement for the explosive Gayle. With Moises Henriques failing to take his chances, either Sri Lankan allrounder Angelo Mathews or Mashrafe Mortaza could get a game. Ashok Dinda also had a forgettable outing against Punjab, and might be benched.

I think even Angelo Mathews will get a chance but not Mashrafe, they just have something against him, what pisses me off the most is they bidded on him like they really wanted him but they just bench him.

It's one thing if Mashrafee was a regular in the team, it's another thing to let him play one or two game just for the sake of it.

I know I support Mashrafee because he is Bangladeshi but in reality:
1) He is over rated by Bangladeshi fans
2) He is over paid. (call it his luck or KKR mistake)

Mashrafee is similar to ashraful, has one or two magical games - he never performed well back to back. And one of his advantage as an ODI bowler is that batsman respect him and play cautiously against him while go against other BD bowlers. In 20/20 he will not have that luxury. This guy will get clobbered right and left. And once Mash gets hit for couple of boundaries, he loses his 20 seconds mojo that he has gained meditating for a year.

Orpheus
May 5, 2009, 12:37 AM
FOr t20 i would actually value Ashraful more than Mashrafee but too bad Ash has to compete against some formidable names.

If Pakistanis were allowed to play ( don't know why they aren't), Mashrafee wouldn't have even gotten picked. That's the reality. But that 600K is playing in everyone's head. That is an inflated value!! Mash is more like 120K bench warmer at best.

I would rather have Mash of recent time (not injured) than Shoaib or many other truely overated bowlers of this world, in my side. Your analysis makes Mash sound an average bowler...people who understand cricket will tell you otherwise.

Its one thing being a realist and other thing knocking someone down unfairly!

Beamer
May 5, 2009, 10:40 AM
Contrary to what Orphy says, I would argue that Mash has become quite a good opening bowler in the shorter versions of the game. He has problem with the old white ball bowling at the death, since he doesn't have an yorker or a cleverly disguised slow ball, which are needed in a bowlers arsenal in order to be a good end over bowlers. He, however is as good as any in early overs. Whether he is overpaid or not is a mute argument here. If somebody is willing to pay you more than what you deserve then thats what you deserve.

i can bet my life on that Boka-nana is a pure racist. he said in his interview that he requested IPL authorities to let them play more overseas players. WHY????? so that he can bring more aussie players in the team and give them some more money....most stupid racist coach i have ever seen. this is indian premier league for god sake. from my point of view even 4 overseas players are too many in some cases. you can't ask for more then 4 players outside india in any indian league. look what he did today??/ he sent 4 white guys on the top where henriques came at no.4. but he is not even a good middle order batsman. the Moises scored 6 runs in his first 2 matches and so far he scored less than the number of balls he played. Ganguly didn't get the chance to bat even after wyk got out. i am telling you this buchanan guy pulling KKR down. he thinks that he is so over-smart. but in fact he doesn't even come to que of a avg person. and more than anything, McCullum SUX as a captain. he hasn't got the ability or the talent to run a team. you guys don't have to pray to bring KKR in the loosing side. they are gonna go by themselves. 154, this is the highest team total of KKR in this tournament. how funny, after playing 9 matches i think a club could do better than this.

Well, to be honest; very few of us give a **** about IPL. It's just that it's been very looooong since we saw our team play any sort of cricket and we're really thirsty for it. That's why we want to satisfy ourselves by seeing at least one of our guys in the field. It's really frustrating without cricket you know, it's been 4 months I tell ya; and if none of our Mash and Ash play in IPL, we'll have to wait another month until the T20 WC.

Keeping aside Mash for a minute ...Who in the right mind will give Mendis only a single game !!!

Agreed McCullam and Gyle are Match winners but I think Mendis can win matches on his own !! Consider that the rookie Indian players would not be able to read him.The only player that the Indians (national team) feared in the last ODI series was Mendis

Had they given him a fair run he would have won half the matches.

For me this decision tells it all !!! Hodge,Podge etc over mendis for most of the games shows pure stupidity !

19 ball 10. What a show stopper. That killed the game right there. Having a Strikerate of 105% woohoo in T20 (this IPL). That killed KKR for the tournament.

Keeping aside Mash for a minute ...Who in the right mind will give Mendis only a single game !!!
He played the next game too, against Mumbai Indians. He took some serious beating from Jayasuria/Tendulkar, but which KKR bowler didn't that day?

On the other hand, Agarkar continues to play match after match despite averaging 10+ rpo throughout the tournament.

Buchanan might have some race-instincts. Sri Lankans or Bangladeshis or Indians are no good. He feels sorry for Langeveldt, because 5 foreigners are not allowed.

I won't be surprised if you are correct on this.

I remember he made a vaguely racist comment when oz lost to ind @ eden after their 16match winning streak . something like "it hurts losing the winning streak to india, if this had happened in the ashes to england (that was their next series) I would have accepted it easily."

I predict that both Mash and Ash will get one game each. It would have been better if they were in BD playing the 20/20 tournament,would have had more excitement and practice, now they are only warming their seats. They will not have any practice before departing for England, I heard that the squad leaves for England on May 23, then Mash and Ash will join them. Guess that they wil get their practice and form in the practise games. They should be able to beat Ireland, India is doubtful, but if India and Ireland beat them, they are out of the competition, and this will be worse than 2007.

They are playing in practice match or at least one of the is. and on top they bowling/batting against some of the best and getting paid. think this is the best thing could happen to bd. cause now their is minimal risk of getting injured while playing and they r sharping theirs (remember they get advice from gangulli, tendulker) skills...

KKR is the only team to have lost almost all games. If T-20 has a luck factor, the points table shows and confirms it. All teams, except KKR, have own some and lost some...this is likely to happen when eight teams of similar capability are playing T-20 league. KKR is the only odd man out...thanks to Buchanan-da.

So do the New York Yankees :(

There's no bonding or Chemistry on the team, It takes time to mesh and play like an Well Oiled Machine. It takes the Coach and The Captain to use the players the right way, keep the spirits up.

It's a 2 way street tho ,If the players did something nice for McCullum that too would go a long way in making them better as well.

I bet there is like 4 different cliques on that team

AsifTheManRahman
May 10, 2009, 12:41 AM
McCullum's no captain. He is what he is - a hitter - and that's as much responsibility as he should have been handed.

Leading the team should have been left up to the real captain.

Baundule
May 10, 2009, 03:40 AM
THe thing is, Kolkata has one of the best teams on paper
I would say, they certainly have one of the best sets of players; not team. As a team, they are pretty imbalanced. Bowlers like Mendis and Mashrafe are gems for any team. Langeveldt, being an inout in the SA team, is not in the same tier. The same is true for batsmen like Gayle, McCullum, (Ponting), David Hussy and Brad Hodge (in T20). This van Wyk guy is also doing wonders. So, eventually they have too many batting power which they can not use. Such a strong batting power in diposal, they can not use their international bowlers as well. So, as a team, they are in total mess. In order to be successful, they should have focused on where it is due. In the playing XI, there must be at least 7 indian players. They have totally ignored this fact. Beside Ishant, none (including Ganguly) is a quality T20 player.

There is another detrimental side effect. A quality player should be an integrated part of the team and should feature regularly in the playing XI. You can not toss with it a give some chances here and there and drop in the next match. Take Mendis for example. Such a motivated guy with such a quality ... and the treatment he is receiving!
