Angelo mathews is the better batsman in T20 but Shakib is the better bowler. Overall shakib is better imo. But many people don't know about Shakib that much and Mathews played well in IPL last year.

Probably there is something about the british players.. no picker for James Anderson, Swann and Chris Gayle surprised me the most. But its obvious that IPL model is working.. their domestic players like Ashwin ( whom I have no idea about) getting 850,000 dollars compared to Mccullum getting only 400,000.. They should reward and keep their dollars with their own players than foreign players. In that respect, they are successful.

January 8, 2011, 06:58 AM
Its logicS that indian players get more than foreign player because there are only few indian player ( world class) : 20/30

If shakib was indian he would get like Ghambir

Ahh for Cryin ut loud no bidders for Tamim. Ipl franchises no little about cricket in my opinion. Tamim iqbal is clearly suited to playing t20. The reason why his average is so low in it is because since he's been in form that he's currently in.. there havent been many t20 matches bdesh have participated in.

I'm very dissapointed to hear no bids for tamim.

January 8, 2011, 07:29 AM
As I mentioned this earlier.. none of our players really showed maturity in T20 format ( other than shabbir, I guess). The last T20 tournament we had, Big Boss T20, Alok Kapali was the star there, it wasnt Shakib or Ashraful. Tamim did well there I think but he is purely batsman. The only reason Shakib was picked is because of his all round skills and KKR needed a quality spinner. Why would indian team's go for batsman when they have too many of them there...When IPL drops Chris Gayle, Swann, James Anderson like players,, Tamim not being selected is a surprise but not a shocker, really.

Yes, that is correct. Shakib needs to fight for his position against either Kallis for the all rounder spot or Eoin Morgan for the no 6 spot. I am certain he will play more matches than Morteza.

I think it's Morgan that might miss out as Shakib's bowling should make him a more useful player. I don't think Shakib would have to fight with Kallis as Kallis would probably bat in top 3 like he has done for Royal Challenger's Bangalore in the last couple of seasons.

A big congrats to Shakib! Very proud of him getting a team in the IPL. He must be a very happy man himself. I was worried nobody would buy him since it looked like the Indians were all getting bought for a big price while the foreigners weren't getting as much.

KKR is a good fit for Shakib in my opinion. There are some other high profile players that Shakib could be around which will be very good for him. Most importantly Whatmore is the coach and I'm sure he'll give him a lot of chances. Haven't been a big fan of the IPL but if Shakib plays regularly then I'll definitely watch more games.

Shakib now a Knight Rider (http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=169272)

“My job is to play cricket as much as possible. I'm happy with the ultimate bidding that is double my floor price. As far as I know, the Indian players' demand was high,” said Shakib in an instant reaction during a break in the shooting for a commercial at the Botanical Garden in Mirpur.

“I am really delighted because last time I had high hopes but could not make it,” he added.

“Tamim (Iqbal) called me first. I was a little nervous when I didn't receive any calls for a certain period, though I knew that this time it will happen as Dav (Whatmore) told me during his recent visit to Bangladesh that he will bid for me,” revealed Shakib.

I am happy that Shakib is with KKR. Just hoping he dont get dumped by KKR by not leting him play like they did to Mortaza.

mortaza was given a chance by kkr and conceded 21 runs in the last over to lose to deccan chargers (the most expensive spell in ipl 2009). although he should have been given more chances to prove himself, i think the way he capitulated and the fact there were so many other international options like gayle hussy bond mendis, etc, meant he was left out.

aslong as shakib doesnt do something this embarrassing i think he will get more game time. And the fact this time around there are 74 matches and there is a 10 game limit on players to prevent fatigue, shakib will surely get 3 or 4 games minimum.

mortaza was given a chance by kkr and conceded 21 runs in the last over to lose to deccan chargers (the most expensive spell in ipl 2009). although he should have been given more chances to prove himself, i think the way he capitulated and the fact there were so many other international options like gayle hussy bond mendis, etc, meant he was left out.

aslong as shakib doesnt do something this embarrassing i think he will get more game time. And the fact this time around there are 74 matches and there is a 10 game limit on players to prevent fatigue, shakib will surely get 3 or 4 games minimum.

Cricinfo's reason for Tamim Iqbal's omission:

And what about Tamim Iqbal, the aggressive Bangladesh opener who seems made for Twenty20?
Two reasons. First, the numbers: though he has had a good Test season in 2010, his ODI and Twenty20 form last year was far from impressive. In 23 matches, he made 776 runs at 33.73 with one century while in two Twenty20s, he only managed 33 runs. He's also been battling a wrist injury, for which he's undergone surgery. The other reason franchises did not bid for him was his international commitments: according to the ICC's Future Tours Programme, Bangladesh are busy during March and April so Tamim would have to miss a healthy part of the next IPL.

i remember reading it somewhere but i cant remember exactly where, but this might have been before they made it 74 games instead of the 90+ games.

but still im pretty sure there is a set number of games that players cannot play more than as there was big concern over player burnout due to the ipl.

I might be wrong, but he only conceded 21 runs because McCullum put too many men outside the PP circle, leading to a no-ball... and the last ball was hit for 6, I think, which wouldn't have happened.

I really wished 5 foreign players were allowed to play in a game. It would make matches more competitive and the bidding would have been more fair as well. Honestly, there are not enough quality indian players to fulfill the quota of 7 against the 4 other world class players for 10 teams. After all the objective of ipl is to make money, the slogan of developing young cricketers is bull's crap.

agree with u and shakib will definitely be in their main game plan unlikely mash treatement. shakib is their main player, even his chances to play in the main Xi is more than kallis. i think 4 foreign quota will be filled by

shakib--allrounder
kallis--al rounder
morgan
lee/dutch guy (ryan ten....) or if they dont have keeper then haddin

they have some domestic pacer, plus kallis can bowl 4 over without any problem

Shakib is in a favorable position along with Kallis because he can be used as a top order batter as well as a primary bowler. Surely he will get more games...and with the kind of champion player he is..he will be a success

Cricket is a team sport... and playing as a unit matters more than individual brilliances. What IPL does is that it brings in brilliant individuals with big bucks under one squad but can they play as a unit as effectively as an international side would? I dont think so... even in Champions League its quite evident... local aussie teams comprised of local players play with much more unity and as a team. So in my opinion IPL standard would be always below International standard for this reason...

As for the commercialization of IPL... i don't think common people care too much about cheerleaders and actresses... unless cricket is the long term focus and biggest selling point of IPL... at somepoint viewer interest is bound to go down... and with the kind of money they are spending it will bite them in the *ss big time.

It's like watching a movie that you know is going to be bad, but you watch it any ways to kill time or to see your fav. actors. But not for the plot.

Stereotypes? Bro what I had posted are bunch of facts from IPL. Tell me one that that was a lie. Can't defend that? More like can't be defended, because you can't fight the facts.

Please gimme one valid reason why big bash is better than IPL? Yeah IPL is all glam and fluff but you can't hold that point against the quality of cricket played in IPL surely? IPL is much more competitive than big bash, end of.

And poor analogy, in cricket quality of cricketers = quality of cricket.

c'mon bro!...being biased has a limit right?:) (edit: on another note being biased has no limit when comes to ur country!..dispatch my 1st words:) )

anyway i see kkr signing their uncapped players back(http://www.espncricinfo.com/indian-premier-league-2011/content/current/story/496507.html)..why?..beyond my logic...their indian players sucked bigtime last 3 seasons..
Would love to hear reasons except 'it's IPL, it got to suck?'

"We needed a specialist Indian spinner to accompany Shakib [al Hasan] and Yusuf Pathan and we are happy to get Iqbal," a Kolkata spokesperson said.
Means we'll get to see more of shakib surely? Hurray :D

LOL, this bunch of retards wasted an awful lot of money in the wrong places. They don't have a clue about quality of the players. Let it go guys.

It is sad that they just bought Shakib and no other player. But calling them retards:lol:. Dude the people sitting over there represent companies whose turnover is more than GDP of Bangladesh:-| :(.

I read articles in their media, cricinfo and tried to put some logic about the decision
1. Indian and foreign players should not be compared in prices. There are 10 teams. Each can have 4 foreign players and 7 Indian Players. That means total 40 Foreign Players and 70 Indian players required
2. There were 40 capped Indian players. So 40 required for 70 places. Loads of competition. High prices. Rest have to be filled by uncapped players
3. 40 foreign slots out of 310 Players. So Supply > Demand. There were loads of choices. Only the best to be picked. Having a choice on foreign players around 70 can be picked out of 310. Still loads of choices
4. 6 Australian Coaches. They know their local teams very well. When they advise I know Christian is very good, but have just heard of Tamim, the Franchisee will listen to him. That reflected high no of Australians.
5. We have not been good marketers of our players. The ICC page, media here in Kenya where I am, is talking of Lara, Gayles, English players not being picked. No one is talking of bangladeshi players :sick:
6. And yes, emotion also played a part. There was a hitch in bidding for players. When one bid then chain reaction followed.

The Franchisee can go for contract in between also. I am sure after the good performance by our players in World Cup. many will be picked up and contracted. We know South Asian pitches better than those Australians

By contrast the "made in Bangladesh" tag doesn't seem to have the same strength, as we saw with the extraordinary lack of interest in Tamim Iqbal, one of my earliest picks. Again, this is a matter of evolution. We in India have long suffered from the "made in India" tag. Time and performance will change that perception for Bangladeshi players. Already Shakib Al Hasan is emerging as a wonderful ambassador.

ANyone watching Yusuf batting today??? I am happy Shakib will have Yusuf Pathan batting him in the nets. It will make him much better bowler and ofcourse glad he isn't playing against him in IPL. :saint:
