Last year,

Razzaq, only BD player to be in IPL - played for Banglore, team ended up being the last.

this year, ashraful and mashrafee represented Mumbai and Kolkata respectively -

both team ended up last....one sucked more than the other.

In all three teams, BD player just got ONE game and sucked really bad in it too - oh btw - all lost that game as well.

Good call, because seriously, the way our players have performed in the IPL although in only one game each, there shouldn't be a reason for teams to sign our players and let alone play them.

But I say give someone like Shakib and Mash a chance to prove themselves in 20/20, and they'll do it.

Hopefully they perform big time in the World Cup and get recognized by the IPL next season.

It's not a curse. It's reality. We are not good enough. Yet, I will be a fan. A dedicated fan. Till I die. Or am killed by BCCI.

The main problem with the Bangladeshi players is not their cricketing ability; it is their personalities. Last year Razzak was an stand out performer in T20s; still he could not instill enough confidence in his coach or captain to get selected. Dravid was even denying singles, even when the match was lost.

This year, it was a tough call for both Mash and Ash. Mashrafe is a victim, yes the word is carefully chosen, of mis team-management. Guys like Henriques were getting picked ahead of Mendis, Mash and Langeveldt. The only chance he got, he started pretty well, almost getting the wicket of Gilchrist. But then he broke down, delivering full tosses and length balls.

In Mumbai, there were superior players than Ash and there is no shame that he got selected for only one match. He got himself out to a very good delivery; but he was electric in the field.

In general, the elite pannel of world cricket do underestimate the capabilities of Bangladeshi players. So, they do not get proper chances, at least that has been the case in the IPL. Having a full team of ours in the ICL showed the world what we are capable of. Even with a mediocre set of players, they could compete with big names. Anyway, we could have seen a better performances, if Mash were playing for Punjab and Ash for Shane Warne's team.

To be honest, the ball that got Ash out was a very good ball. It was not a usual four ball. :D

Bechara Ashraful is always the victim of very good balls. :(

i still think any team would be lucky to have shakib in their squad, naeem if he can learn to be more aggressive at the right times could become a pretty handy t20 player as well. there is also rasel and i think ash is still a player teams might consider, not sure whether mash will be written off yet or not.

i dont really think they can cancel the players contract after 1 year. It only happened with Pakistani players because they were unable to come to play to India, so their contracts could be cancelled. Razzak's contract was also cancelled because he was ineligible for selection as he was banned.

But for Kolkata Knight Riders Umar Gul is coming back! Also the way Langeveldt bowled I dont think theres any room for Mortaza...

Im sure Mohammad Ashraful will stay with Mumbai Indians though :)

These teams finished last alright, but the BD players are not to be blamed for that....they hardly played. T20 is a lottery version of cricket, success is never guaranteed; but if you are good enough, you should come good 1 out of 2-3 times... but you need to get chance to play at least 4-5 games in succession.

Considering the limit of 4 non -Indian players per game, it is difficult to visualize a BD player making it to the playing 11, the way things have gone.

Its the curse of Aussies that submerged the main contenders.

It's not the teams, but the BD players are losing the most by going there. Razzaq damaged, Mash and Ash is also to some extent but need to see what they do in the coming WC matches. These teams shatter the confidence of our players through extreme underestimated treatments...if not any other thing.

i am kinda surprised to see Shardul bhai defend ashraful like this :D but it is true that we lost many ODI's after cardiff because our stronger opponents "figured out" simple equation to Bangladesh success, "Ashraful = Bangladesh win; no Ashraful, Bangladesh no win" the only time Bangladesh won without Ashraful majorly contributing is that famous India WC victory otherwise in every Victory Ashraful has been either the primary or the secondary architect behind famous Bangladesh victories.

Are Mash and Ash"s contract for one year or 3 years? If it is only for 1 yr, then Mash got a whole lot of money for playing one match.

There are many foreign players in other teams who did not get to play a single match in the IPL e.g. Ntini, Mcgrath, Chamara Silva, Dilhara Fernando, Kulasekara and many others. Are their contract going to be terminated too? I think not. The Franchises should only have 7 foreign players, they are wasting money by having 10 foreign players.
