Also he saves it for special occassions a la watson :-p

It really would've been great if he had stayed there and win the game for KKR. That was the last ball of the over. That other dude already score 9 runs of the over, all he had to do was play the ball, get a single or even just block the low fully and survive.

I always thought of him as a bowling allrounder.

He was a Batting ALR, Pre- #1 ALR. He became #1 ALR, once he worked on his bowling more, and picked up all those 5-for regularly. And at the same time he improved his batting and scored runs bunch of 96s and Couple of 100s. And that's when he became TRUE ALR.

Now he just lost form with the bat. Just like he had lost a bit of form with the ball before getting a CC- Worc. contract.

dhurrrr, if only he batted sensibly and just stayed a few overs taking singles and targetted the other bowlers and even if he got out, then ykp was there to recover, it would have made Shakib indispensible to kkr. oh well :(, happy with his bowling though:)

i am not a big fan of shakib's batting, and i will be very surprised if he plays a match winning explosive innings in IPL.

bowling wise, he is doing excellent, but batting wise he might be explosive, but i dont think he will be match winning in that front.

Shakib in t20s isn't as bad as what he might seem regarding his batting-he has played good attacking innings against aus and pak (against aus he scored a 54 (29) few years back) and I think he has the ability-he needs to put the scoop shot out of the way until perhaps later in the innings when he is more set. I hope to see him do better next time, I think today's match was a blip-but when you come that low down the order in a t20 match I think you're going to play afew silly shots as there are so few overs left you don't think of building an innings.

Regarding his celebrations, perhaps he is waiting for the next WWE episode etc Hope shakib doesn't go crazy about SRK like Mashrafe. Personally I dislike SRK intensely(then again I don't like bollywood etc)

that 54 off 29 was in a preparation match for the world T20 in England, and the aussies scored so much runs, it didnt matter.

it was like imrul kayes's 93 against Australia, in not much of a pressure situation, and match always lost. thats when we scored 180 chasing 220. and people were praising our batting. like people praised our batting when we scored 283 chasing 370. insignificant and misleading.

considering the situation the way he got out was nothing but misfortune, tell you why, because he came into situation where he has hurry for the quick runs before settling up his eyes, so you hit I miss type of things happened there. I don't blame Shakib, KKR should put him bit up of the order where he can have little time to settle then go for shots. We all know he is capable of biggies..

I found these days our some forum brothers so easily dismiss a person's credit and easily tag him like a crap or whatever..

you don't judge him from one first innings, if you blame then blame Ghambir, Kallis..they had enough time to settle and go for shots..

Shakib will do better (we all know his capability, pls patient) in his batting from the next matches, note my words !!

1st of all regarding the position he bats he'll akways come in a situation where "he has hurry for the quick runs before settling up his eyes" so i wouldn't give that an excuse..and why should we give every time our players fail at something?..its not good

Runs are runs whether made in a winning or losing cause. Credit's due where it's due, ashraful's 94 (52) was in a losing cause, but I still rate it as perhaps the greatest attacking innings played by a Bangali esp considering it was in england

Bangladesh's batting was praised because their batting was good, their bowling let them down, the batsmen performed the bowlers didn't-that doesn't take away from how our batsmen played. They didn't steal the runs, there were no under the table dealings and as far as I know Al Pacino wasn't involved either, as George would say "Do not misunderestimate" what our batsmen have done during these individual innings.

Shakib is a decenttwenty twenty batsman-he's been doing enough with the ball-his shot selection was silly but in t20 who doesn't make a mistake or two? Mr Morgan has hardly set the IPl on fire and Dan Christian for all his money is turning out to be another KP or Flintoff or Lara in the ICL.

shakib is a decent batsman, but his batting hardly matches up the quality of his bowling.

it does matter in what situation the runs came. that 283 chasing 370 gave everyone the impression that our batting was quite well, in fact, powerful. which was not true. it was a flash in the pan for a weak batting line up. i know shakib is one of our top 2-3 batsmen, but he has never proven that he is T20 material. not at the international level. he is still young, and he can prove me wrong, but as i said, i watch him for his bowling. his batting isn't my primary concern. he will play sensibly, build an innings, score some runs in a difficult sensible chase, but he wont explode too much.

ashraful's 94 of 52 was utter dominance, and that was something else. it also came at a pace and point the England team thought they might lose even after scoring 391. of course things fell apart once he was out.

Did you watch his batting in the tri nation series against Srilanka? That was definitely in a pressure situation & he blasted Murali-Mendis-Kula all over the ground. In fact, whenever he scored over 80, most of the time he scored at more than run a ball.

to clarify my position: i think tamim is our best batsman, followed by shakib. shakib is a good ODI batsman, but he hasnt been much of a revelation for T20. hope things change, but atm, he isnt a good T20 batsman for sure.

Tamim is the best batsman only in 'Tests'. Batsman Shakib has much better record in ODIs. In T20 both of them sucked & Tamim a bit more. So all things considered Shakib is slightly ahead of Tamim IMO, but Tamim certainly has the potential to be better than Shakib in all formats if he can learn to rotate the strike like Shakib.

Ok if that's your op, fair enough. As you've probably seen by now I'm of a different opinion.

BD were still in the game when Imrul was there chasing the Aussies' target, it wasn't like they'd thrown in the towel, so from Imrul and Nafees' perspective it probably wasn't a losing cause, it was only at the end.

BD have been scoring decent scores over the last few years so i wouldn't call those a flash in the pan. I would call the 58 and 78 flashes in the pan.

In that game of Ashraful BD had something like 194 after 34 overs with 5 wicks in hand needing 200 off the last 16, England were never really in danger, contrast that, we were 236/3 after 40 chasing a smaller target against India, which was a better placed position in my opinion. Let's wait and see, I think Shakib, other than ash is probably our best t20 batsman and hope to see him do well

Tiger444
April 21, 2011, 08:39 PM
To be honest, our batsmen in general are not good T20 batsmen. Actually Ash has probably been our best T20 batsman so far. Zunaed's record is pretty good as well. The others really struggle when it comes to T20s though. Shakib, I believe needs to be batting at #3 or #4 in T20s. Problem is there's no way with KKR he'll bat that high up the order. So not expecting much with the bat but it's great to see him doing well with the ball.

shakibrulz
April 21, 2011, 11:00 PM
Yeah I agree. Shakib needs time to settle in and rotate the strike. He's not the kind of player who can hit from ball one like Tiwary. So I hope they send him up the order or they would simply be wasting him as a batsman.

not sure about Tiwary I would say he is not like of Afridi or Yousuf pathan who can hit from the ball one. But certainly Shakib can hit ball from the beginning, have seen many times. Tiwary is playing already for a while in IPL plus in his home country where Shakib just started, give Shakib little time you will see where is Tiwary and where is Shakib... in this IPL people like Jadeja hitting why can't Shakib hit, it is matter of time for the master !!

don't take that comment that "shak can't hit from 1st ball like tiwari" as a criticism of shakib. it is just who he is. many superb batsmen like a jawabardhane or a kallis can't hit sixes from ball one.

btw, tiwary is a much more pedigreed batsman than jadeja. he averages 56 in 1st class and it is only bad luck (lost a year due to injury when he was in peak form) that he is not in the Indian team now. don't underestimate him just because he doesn't have much of an international record.

shakib shud not be canned, haddin shud be canned.

or they can drop shakib for a couple of matches(not for performance), but to try out other combinations. i think, one of morgan & haddin shud be tried at a time. haddin cud be a good opening option in place of bisla. they can also try Doeschate for once. but i think it will be a mistake dropping shakib. he is the best specialist spinner in the squad, and shud not be dropped.

Morgan should be dropped imo and lee should come back. Though I would like to see Kallis dropped, if he's not bowling he should not be in the t20 squad at all.

I'm not justifying Shak here, Tiwari is a better batsman and can hit boundaries at will, Shak compared to him is pretty limited and needs time to settle in and work singles which he is pretty good at imo.

হোয়াটমোরের চাওয়া ‘ঘুরে দাঁড়ানো’ (http://www.prothom-alo.com/detail/date/2011-04-25/news/149403)

কলকাতা দলে ব্রেট লি, বালাজি, সাকিব আল হাসানদের মতো বোলার থাকলেও তাঁরা ঠিক সময়ে জ্বলে উঠতে পারছেন না বলে অভিযোগ রয়েছে। বিশেষ করে ব্যাঙ্গালুরুর বিপক্ষে এঁরা কোনো প্রতিরোধই গড়ে তুলতে পারেননি। বিশেষ করে বাঁ-হাতি স্পিনার হিসেবে সাকিবের ওপর দলের যে ভরসা ছিল, সেটা পূরণে তিনি ব্যর্থ হয়েছেন। তবে হোয়াটমোর ব্যাঙ্গালুরুর বিপক্ষে ম্যাচটিকে বোলারদের জন্য একটি ‘খারাপ দিন’ হিসেবেই দেখতে চান। তিনি বলেন, ‘বোলাররা ব্যর্থ—এটা আমি বলতে চাই না। আমরা কয়েকটি ম্যাচে জয়ের খুব কাছে গিয়ে পরাজিত হয়েছি। ওই ম্যাচগুলোতে জয় আসলে আজকের পরিস্থিতি সম্পূর্ণ অন্য রকম হতো।’

মাত্র আধা ঘণ্টার মধ্যে সব পাল্টে গেল। এক দিন আগেও আমরা ছিলাম প্রতিপক্ষ। কিন্তু ঢাকা থেকে কলকাতায় এসে নামার পরই হয়ে গেলাম সতীর্থ!
বলছিলাম ব্রেট লি আর ব্র্যাড হাডিনের কথা। অস্ট্রেলিয়ার বিপক্ষে শেষ ওয়ানডের পরদিন আমরা তিনজন একই বিমানে ঢাকা থেকে কলকাতায় আসি কলকাতা নাইট রাইডার্সের (কেকেআর) হয়ে আইপিএল খেলতে। ঢাকায় বিমানবন্দরেই আমাদের দেখা হয়েছিল। তবে কাকভোরে সবারই রাত জাগার ক্লান্তি ছিল বলে বলতে গেলে কথাই হয়নি। কলকাতায় নামার পরই ওদের সঙ্গে সতীর্থের মতো আলাপচারিতা শুরু হয়ে গেল। আইপিএল ব্যাপারটাই আসলে এ রকম—আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেটের প্রবল প্রতিপক্ষও এখানে এসে হয়ে যাচ্ছে সতীর্থ, কখনো কখনো বন্ধু।
লি-হাডিনের সঙ্গে তবু তো আমি একই দলে খেলি, আরেক অস্ট্রেলিয়ান শেন ওয়াটসন এখানেও প্রতিপক্ষ। ও খেলছে রাজস্থান রয়্যালসে। কিন্তু এই ওয়াটসনও আইপিএলে এসে দারুণ দিলখোলা! একই ফ্লাইটে জয়পুরে খেলতে গিয়েছিলাম আমরা। বিমানে ওর সঙ্গে আড্ডাটা খুব জমেছিল। যদিও ক্রিকেট নিয়ে কোনো কথাই হয়নি। এমনকি আমাদের বিপক্ষে যে কদিন আগেই ও রকম দানবীয় ব্যাটিং করে গেল, সেসব নিয়েও না। সবই ব্যক্তিগত আলোচনা...খেলার বাইরে কে কী করি, কই থাকি, পরিবারে কে কে আছে এসব। ওয়াটসনের সঙ্গে ভালোই খাতির হয়ে গেছে আমার।
আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেটের সঙ্গে তো বটেই, আমার ধারণা বিশ্বের অন্যান্য নামী-দামি ঘরোয়া টুর্নামেন্টের সঙ্গেও আইপিএলের বিস্তর ফারাক। আমি ইংলিশ কাউন্টি খেলেছি, সেখানকার পরিবেশের সঙ্গে আইপিএলের দিন-রাত্রি মেলানো যাবে না। আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেট বা অন্যান্য ক্লাব ক্রিকেটের মতো এখানে অনুশীলনের চাপ নেই। অনুশীলন মানে এখানে এই নয় যে, সবকিছু দলের সঙ্গে রুটিন মাফিক করতে হবে। অনুশীলনটা আইপিএলে অনেক বেশি ব্যক্তিগত ব্যাপার। যার যেখানে সমস্যা মাঠে গিয়ে সে সেটা নিয়েই কাজ করছে। প্রয়োজনে কোচের সাহায্য নিচ্ছে। তবে বাধ্যবাধকতা না থাকলেও কেউ অনুশীলন না করে বসে থাকে না। এই জায়গায় সবাই সিরিয়াস। যতটুকুই সুযোগ পাওয়া যায়, একবিন্দু ছাড় দেয় না কেউ। তবে হ্যাঁ, অন্য অনেক জায়গার চেয়ে আইপিএলে মানসিক চাপটা বেশি মনে হচ্ছে আমার কাছে। এই কদিনের অভিজ্ঞতায় আরেকটা ব্যাপার আমার কাছে পরিষ্কার, বাংলাদেশের জাতীয় দলের চেয়েও কেকেআরের অনুশীলনে সুযোগ-সুবিধা বেশি।
কেকেআরে আমার খুব পরিচিত একজনকে আবারও কোচ হিসেবে পেয়েছি। আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেটে আমার প্রথম কোচ ডেভ হোয়াটমোর। আমার কেকেআরে আসাতেও মুখ্য ভূমিকা ছিল তাঁর। তবে পেশাদার ক্রিকেটে যা হয় আরকি...আগেও যে আমাদের মধ্যে চেনা-জানা ছিল, সেটা আইপিএলে এসে বোঝার উপায় নেই। এখানে সবকিছুই আইপিএল এবং কেকেআর-কেন্দ্রিক।
নানা জাতের, নানা বর্ণের ক্রিকেটারকে এক করে দিচ্ছে আইপিএল। ভিন্ন একটা দেশ, এই দেশের সংস্কৃতি আর মানুষকেও কাছ থেকে জানার সুযোগ এটা। যখন যেখানে খেলা হয়, হোটেল-মাঠ করে সে জায়গাটা ভালোই চেনা হচ্ছে। তবে খেলা বা অনুশীলনের বাইরে বেশির ভাগ সময়ই আমি হোটেলরুমে টিভি দেখে কাটাই।
একই ড্রেসিংরুমে বসে দেখছি গৌতম গম্ভীর ব্যাটিংয়ে যাওয়ার সময় কী করে বা জ্যাক ক্যালিসের দিনের রুটিনটা কেমন—এই অভিজ্ঞতাগুলোও অসাধারণ। একেক ক্রিকেটারের আচরণ একেক রকম। ক্যালিস যেমন চুপচাপ থাকতেই বেশি পছন্দ করে। কেউ কথা বললে উত্তর দেয়, টুকটাক কিছু বলে। নিজে থেকে কথা বলে কম। আবার হাডিন-মরগান খুবই মজার মানুষ। ইয়ার্কি-ফাজলামির ওস্তাদ বলতে পারেন। সব মিলিয়ে বহুজাতিক ড্রেসিংরুমে সময়টা ভালোই কাটছে। লি-ক্যালিসদের মতো বড় খেলোয়াড়দের কাছ থেকে দেখে অনেক কিছু শেখারও আছে।
বলিউড কিং শাহরুখ খানকে কাছ থেকে দেখাটাও একটা বড় অভিজ্ঞতা। তাঁর মতো ক্রিকেট-পাগল মানুষ বোধহয় কমই আছে। প্রতিটি ম্যাচের আগে-পরে আমাদের সঙ্গে দেখা করেন। জিতলে খুশি হন, অভিনন্দন জানান। হারলে পরের ম্যাচে ভালো খেলার জন্য সাপোর্ট দেন। আমার সঙ্গে সরাসরি খুব বেশি কথা অবশ্য হয়নি শাহরুখের। শুধু রাজস্থান রয়্যালসের বিপক্ষে পর পর দুই উইকেট পাওয়ার পর ম্যাচ শেষে বলেছিলেন, হ্যাটট্রিকটা পরের ম্যাচে হবে। হ্যাটট্রিক না হলেও পরের ম্যাচেই কিন্তু আমি ৩ উইকেট পেয়েছি!
গেইলের তাণ্ডবের কারণে গত ম্যাচটা একটু খারাপ গেলেও আইপিএলে এখন পর্যন্ত বোলিং ভালোই করছি। যা করতে চাচ্ছি, তাই হচ্ছে। অন্তত আমি এখন পর্যন্ত পারফরম্যান্সে সন্তুষ্ট। ব্যাটিংয়ের সুযোগটা ভালোভাবে পাচ্ছি না, এই যা। একটা ম্যাচেই সুযোগ পেয়েছিলাম, ভালো করতে পারিনি। তবে মনে বিশ্বাস আছে, বোলিংয়ের মতো ব্যাটিংয়েও আমার দিন আসবে।

I also think Shakib might be axed today, simply cuz of the nature of the pitch though.

On a side note regarding social events, I think Shakib should be careful not to have pictures taken of him that might have any alcoholic beverage around. For example, on the 3rd picture, if there was a bottle of beer in the table, our media could easily use their expertise in yellow journalism and next thing you know " Kolkata'e moddo pane roto Sakib" ...
Whether he wants to drink or not is really his choice, but being the captain of our national team, he should be careful of how his image is being potrayed in the media.

Don't think Shakib will get any more chances Abdulla bowled 4 over for 25 and picked up 3 wickets.
Ten Doeschate is a better finisher than Shakib and has more T20 experience, he deserves more chances. KKR foreign players should be Kallis, Morgan, Ten Doeshchate and Lee.

It's good that Shakib was dropped, failure is the pillar of success.

Morgan is a good player but he has done nothing of note in the IPL over 2 seasons and 12 odd matches. Morgan shouldn't be in the team, shakib as a t20 bat could do as well as morgan has done-morgan is an excellent fielder, keep him as sub

Morgan lit up the stadium today with an unbelievably luminiscent 0 off 1 ball. When the commentators were asked about the brightness of the innings Ravi Shastri of all people was lost for words momentarily:
"Um, you see the ball was like a tracer bullet and Morgan was in and out of the crease like a tracer bullet and his duck was golden so gold being precious, his innings was precious and shiny?" he added sheepishly.
"Anyway it was so bad, I mean so scintillatingly bright I had to look away"

Other commentators were similarly dumbstruck by the ingenuity of the inclusion of Morgan over Shakib al Hasan.
"well you see he's the number two ranked all rounder in the world while the other one has been as useful as Fair and Lovely on Tamim's face and belly-oh wait they left out the number 2 ranked allrounder, my bad. That was not a Citi moment of success" said a dejected Simon Doull.

When Danny Morrison was asked he simply laughed sycophantically and yelled "That's all over boys a Banglawash, Citi moment of success, DLF maximum, Morgan plays an exceptional reverse sweep when he's played more than 1 ball, Karbonn Kamal..Karbonn Kamal....Karbonn Kamaaaaaaaaa....." before he was quickly whisked away by worried IPL officials-it appears such a selection had a huge psychological impact on the renowned kiwi commentator who's vocabulary has been restricted to the words he repeated most. However It has now been shown in MRIs that excessive IPL commentating is also a health hazard.

With three more home matches lined up -- Kings XI Punjab, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians -- it is crucial for the Knight Riders not to lose the grip of it. At the slow Eden Gardens strip on Saturday, Gambhir will certainly give a thought about bringing in Bangladeshi skipper and left arm spinner Shakib-al-Hasan in the four foreigner line-up.

I'm pretty sure Shakib will replace Morgan in this game.

I can't see Shakib getting another game this season barring some injuries to other players. If Eoin Morgan can't find form, they will simply replace him with Mark Boucher. With Iqbal Abullah and Yusuf Pahtan in the team, KKR probably doesn't feel Shakib's bowling is needed.

Boucher is a better batsman than Shakib, although I don't know what kind of form he is in right now. Plus he is a wicketkeeper. But I think KKR are quite happy with their bowling lineup made up of Lee, Balaji, Abdullah and Pathan. So, they want their remaining overseas players to be batsmen. And Morgan, Boucher, Ryan ten Doeschate are better T20 batsmen than Shakib, who is a bowling allrounder.

In the first match, they threw him against watson probably hoping he'd get creamed then he got him bowled. Whatmore probably thought, damn, have to keep him. Then next match he again performed, so he was resigned to keeping him. Then he got a 3 fer-whatmore: "enough is enough, I've got to stamp him out of the team. You Boy, bowl to Gayle" and shakib got creamed.

Whatmore is Vernon Dursley-a real muggle, doesn't know or doesn't want to acknowledge the "magic" of shakib

Whatmore fans please take this with a grain of salt, I'm just having a lighthearted look at shakib's non selection

As can be seen above whatmore on being told eoin morgan was in the team, then being told SRK had bought shakib al hasan. Shakib was promptly sent to the cupboard under the stairs in the dressing room where he lives and only gets Jacques Kallis' old clothes to wear

The main reason why shakib was dropped is because KKR have too many spin bowlers and they didn't expect abdullah and Yusuf to perform as good as they did with the ball

মা অসুস্থ, সাকিব ঢাকায়



মা অসুস্থ হয়ে হাসপাতালে ভর্তি। আইপিএল ফেলে তাই আজ সন্ধ্যায় ঢাকা ফিরে এলেন কলকাতা নাইট রাইডার্সের ক্রিকেটার সাকিব আল হাসান। বিমানবন্দরে নেমে সেখান থেকে প্রথমেই তিনি গেছেন অ্যাপোলো হাসপাতালে অসুস্থ মাকে দেখতে।

সাকিব আবার কবে আইপিএলে খেলতে ভারতে ফিরে যাবেন, সেটি এখনো জানা যায়নি। সন্ধ্যায় টেলিফোনে কথা হলে এ প্রতিবেদককে শুধু বলেছেন, ‘মাত্রই হাসপাতালে এলাম। আগে মায়ের খোঁজ নিয়ে দেখি কী অবস্থা।’
বিসিবি সূত্রে জানা গেছে, মায়ের অসুস্থতার খবর শুনে সঙ্গে সঙ্গেই দেশে ফেরার সিদ্ধান্ত নেন সাকিব। এবারের আইপিএলে শাহরুখ খানের কলকাতা নাইট রাইডার্সের (কেকেআর) হয়ে প্রথম তিন ম্যাচে বল হাতে দুর্দান্ত পারফরম্যান্স বাংলাদেশ অধিনায়কের। তিন ম্যাচে নিয়েছিলেন সাত উইকেট। তবে সর্বশেষ দুই ম্যাচে সাকিবকে ছাড়াই খেলেছে কেকেআর।

shakib was expensive only in one match, where all the other KKR bowlers were expensive too. the Gayle match.

Iqbal Abdulla was not bowled enough to Gayle, and only bowled 2 overs, one of which, Kohli blocked out to give Gayle a shot at the century.

so the claim that Iqbal Abdulla has been bowling better and Shakib hasnt, is not true.

I personally think, the "Bangladeshi" tag is costing Shakib.

nah, SL series will commence on 26th May. Even SL players are allowed to play till 18th who will play 2-3 warm up matches before the first test. So, not much game left for Shakib if he waits for Morgan departure.

Bisla was doing good and he is a local lad too. In terms of batting, Boucher hardly got any chance to bat.Taking a foreign wicketkeeper batsman does not make sense when they already have good local wkt keeper.

I have a feeling that there is some fixing going on. KKR's team combination does not make sense. Tendo is a better batsman than the off form Morgan and Boucher. Gambhir should open the innings. Kallis can hold one end and from the other everyone should score quickly. In form Tiwary, Tendo, Pathan, Shakib - is a formidable batting line up.

Even though he picked up wickets he has been expensive. Also, in IPL we saw even quality players like McGrath benched, Collingwood benched, Haddin benched, I don't see what the big deal is if Shakib is being benched. People are over reacting here, he was given more than enough chances. He needed to make that one knock count and stopped Gayle, Coach is preferring Morgan over Shakib is because Morgan was one of the players who led England to victory in T20 World cup. It's sounds quite stupid to drop Morgan for Shakib.

Also, same people will go back in hiding if Shakib gets treated by Rohit Sharma the same way he molested Mashrafee. I don't want to see Shakib conceding 58 runs in 4 overs, which is very likely in his return.

Boucher is not a good pick, Haddin should replace him.

It's sounds quite stupid to drop Morgan for Shakib.

Also, same people will go back in hiding if Shakib gets treated by Rohit Sharma the same way he molested Mashrafee. I don't want to see Shakib conceding 58 runs in 4 overs, which is very likely in his return.

Boucher is not a good pick, Haddin should replace him.

Lol when was collingwood the No 1 allrounder for 3 yrs in a row? KP and kieswetter did more than morgan and guess what, this isn't the world cup, different conditions different opponents. "Murgi" Morgan needs to go

Mcgrath was a retired player, he was benched, past his prime

Shakib took the crucial wickets of Watson and maccullum and gayle has scored 2 hundreds this series, more than mrogan can probably hope to total in 2 IPL seasons

Haddin should replace boucher with a broken finger?


Guess what Morgan has put together worse performances than Mahsrafe did, mashrafe failed nce morgan has been as consistent at hunting ducks as Dick Cheney has been shooting his duck hunting partner, 100% accuracy

@ baundule, I agree with your suspicions, but am wary of saying anything without evidence, Scott styris and fleming predicting the exact score for 2 matches in a row? I find tha a bit sus

Agreed, you cant compare mcgrath's situation with shakib here. At that time there were less ipl teams, more quality players each team. He was i think 35+ & probably wasnt performing. 37/38 years of age is lot for a pace bowler. He had already retired from internationals

In his post munnabhai said shakib has been given enough chances, thats really funny & ironic. He is in too much love with the overhyped morgan

Even though he picked up wickets he has been expensive. Also, in IPL we saw even quality players like McGrath benched, Collingwood benched, Haddin benched, I don't see what the big deal is if Shakib is being benched.

Shakib was expensive? He conceded 109 off 85 balls. That is 7.5 an over despite the Gayle massacre! Morgan is NOT BETTER than Shakib! Did you see Shakib bat in the last 2.5 years? Constructive criticism is fine. Opinions are fine as well. But stats need to back them up. I have seen that you have always been pessimistic about Bangladesh cricket. Don't know why. 4 overs for 58 don't come everyday. Listen, when Watson hit that 185, Shakib went for just 35 off 7. And against a very strong Aussie bowling attack, he scored 54 off 29! Don't underestimate him, he doesn't deserve to be underestimated.

it is clear that munnabhai is an english cricket supporter, so he will support morgan no matter what. like we support shakib no matter what.

but the baffling part is shakib being neglected match after match, even on turner pitches. he not playing a match or two is fine, but 4-5 matches in a row is sth. its not that he failed miserably. everyone was canned that match, but only shakib paid the price. which is strange. or is it? Gambhir spoke highly of him, yet we are not seeing Shakib anymore in the team. we all know the "made in bangladesh" tag is not still powerful in cricket. thats what costing him.

its this strange team selection of Dav Whatmore. Ten Doeschate also needs more run. Morgan after his extended failure should be replaced with either shakib or Ten Doeschate. but that hasnt been the case. Ten Doeschate could have been tried out in the opening with Kallis. but nothing of that sort also.

He did pick up wickets also went for runs. He was hit for sixes in almost every matches. They already have a left arm spinner and Abdulla is doing quite well. Also, looking at the young kid's stats seems he is a good batsman too. Their bowlers are doing an exceptional job with Lee, Balaji, Pathan, Abdulla, (Lee) even though he has been not among the wickets he's been economical and in IPL you need an express fast bowler.

Not the best of fielders? He's certainly way better than Gambhir, Kallis and Shakib, saves a lot of runs fielding, very sharp lad. Dives at everything, fully determined. So you want to replace both Kallis and Morgan with Shakib and who? You do know how vulnerable the line up sounds right? Shakib is a hit or miss in T20, Pathan is a Afridi type player will hit out, only reliable batsmen are Gambhir, Kallis and Manoj Tiwary.

No that I don't. I am just playing the guess game that KKR will win the remaining two matches and Whatmore might give Shakib one more match.

Haddin is way better than Bisla and the rest of KKR Indian keepers, I would even prefer Boucher over Bisla, Bisla is an exceptional wicket keeper no doubt but he's a pathetic batsman worse than Sir Ash. Enough said. Boucher should be replace with Tendo. Tendo opening with Kallis will be better for KKR.

Shakib needs to improve his batting, he needs to learn how to pace his innings from Gambhir, not just block and make a 50. He should learn how to approach while chasing 250+ and not just give up and think about personal milestones.

If players in IPL are supposed to be always picked on Internationals stats then Ryan Ten Doechate should have made it instead of Morgan/Kallis by now.

Morgan has done nothing in IPL apart from the one 50. Thats his first 30+ score in 13 matches in IPL. He is definitely not their best performing overseas player, Kallis scored much more than him although you could say he has been slow but some runs are better than nothing, and he can bowl unlike morgan

here is the match where Shakib was so freakin expensive, that he was dropped from the squad.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/501222.html

lets look at the bowlers, shall we?

Balaji, 4 overs 43 runs, 1 wicket.
Bhatia, 3 overs, 28 runs.
Pathan, 3 overs, 25 runs.
Unadkat, 3 overs, 24 runs.
Tiwary, 1 over, 14 runs.
Abdulla, 2 overs, 12 runs.
Shakib, 2.1 overs, 29 runs.

everyone got battered, maybe shakib a bit more. but how bad was he doing before? before we examine that, lets see why Iqbal Abdulla bowled better. he came on after the 15th over, Gayle at 92 off 47 already. he gives away 7 runs. next over, he gives away a boundary first ball, but then, Kohli, to give Gayle a chance at his century, blocked out the rest of the over.

how was shakib doing in IPL before this match?

against Rajasthan, Shakib: 4 overs, 31 runs, 2 wickets
against Rajasthan in Kolkata, 4 overs, 21 runs, 2 wickets
against Kochi, 4 overs, 28 runs, 3 wickets

3 matches, 7 wickets. he is a wicket taker without any doubt. that match where he was very expensive, everyone suffered. he shouldn't be axed indefinitely based on this single performance. unless there is some other reason. is there?

lets look at Morgan's performance in IPL this year now.

first match, vs Chennai: 6 off 6, Kolkata lost because of the middle order.
22nd match, vs Kochi, 10 off 12, lost because of middle of order.
24th Match, vs RCB, 6 off 6.
33rd match, vs Delhi, 0 off 1.
42nd Match, vs Deccan, 14 off 15.
45th match, vs Kochi, 66 off 51.
48th match, vs CSK, 5 off 6.

only one decent innings in 7 attempts. and he hasnt actually picked up form also. then why he is being insisted in that spot? Bisla played a decent innings opening, but he wasnt insisted with after a couple of failures. Morgan is being insisted even after this huge failure. why? because he is the coach's favorite.

he is not proven material in T20 or ODI cricket. he is a good batsman, maybe a very good batsman. but as it is said, form is temporary, but class is permanent. since he is not proven, so it is not quite sure that he will come strong.

all my bickering comes down to this. why is Shakib being ignored? Because he is "made in Bangladesh".

so please stop giving me crap that Shakib has been bowling bad consistently, which is why he was dropped.

They keeps trying failed Morgan over and over again, while they bench Shakib and Tendo. That is very unfair. By moving to Eng, Morgan x10-ed his value. If he was still with Irl, he wouldn't have been treated this kingly. Being a Bdeshi and a Dutch is not helping the other 2. Tendo is 10x > Morgan.

Call A a better player than B, just because A's batting is better than B's batting (even though B is an all rounder, and actually more of a bowler)

Compare B's poor economy rate in 1 match to C's economy rate in another match, and conclude than B is not good because he gives away too many runs.

I don't really care much what KKR do with their team selection or the IPL for that matter however what's bothering me is all the County experience Shakib is missing out on sitting in the bench. Worcs could really use him.
