where is Jonas and Munnabhai? Please share your thoughts with us on that dashing 2 run innings. I would love to hear all about it!!

Ey dont try to insult that innings! 2 runs off 5 from Morgan was classic. Did you see how classy he looked? He was just unlucky! If he got just 10 more chances, he would score a massive 20! Respect him! He is Brittish!

This is just beyond ridiculous now. Morgan has sucked the whole tournament and yet is getting every fricking game. I didn't mind Shakib not getting games at 1st but what the fudge has Morgan done to get so many matches?

I was so happy when I saw them lose today. I wanted another firing 50 from Gayle against them. >:)>:)

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.

Ya, if I were him, I'd just leave. 'eff this I am outta here I dont wanna smell indian curry anymore, eng here i come.' If you're gonna buy a player, use them to ur benfit. Don't do favoritism and all that nonsense. After all, at the end of the day, you are trying to W.I.N. Pick what's best for you, and it is SOO NOT morgan.

KKR didn't even report on that SHak to see sick mother for a while and came back. Stupid mofos.

Shakib suffered one bad game (In that game all KKR suffered, why blame Shakib?) and he was dropped where as other bad performers are there.

I blame the coach and the staff, who had different feelings for different people, and those coaches and the staff are not in touch of their own feelings. So they can do what ever they like to.

I do not watch KKR games any more.

I want KKR to lose rest of their matches, and not make the playoffs. Then SHak can go and play with the Worc, where they give him the value and respect that he deserves. What about you?

There is another option. Shak plays and wins them the next to matches, and then most likely get dropped on Semis... and then hear KKR fans bash the hell out of them for dropping Shakib.

Kolkata to go out I hope,
Shakib should play for worcs-he probably should have left earlier. I hope Morgan doesn't leave, he should see KKR through to a successful campaign. I heard Morgan's a good finisher

as an aside, Jonas wanted to see Shakib play despite his support of Morgan. By his name I'm assuming he may be an englishman and I can understand how he'd want morgan to play

As for not picking him, Dav is the coach and Gambhir is the captain, direct your queries to them.

He is missing out on real cricket in England. :(

each team play 5 other teams 2 times, and 4 teams once. who plays who in what format is set before the season.

the top 4 qualify, with top 2 having 2 chances at the final match. 1 plays 2, and 3 plays 4. winner of 1 vs 2 qualifies to the final, while loser of this match plays winner of 3 vs 4. winner of this match also goes to the final.

not a bad format, trying to minimize matches.

[বাংলা]কলকাতা নাইট রাইডার্সে যোগ দেওয়ার পর প্রথম চারটি ম্যাচেই খেলেছেন। পারফরম্যান্সও খুব খারাপ ছিল না। কিন্তু এরপর টানা পাঁচ ম্যাচে দলে নেই সাকিব আল হাসান! কেন দলে সুযোগ পাচ্ছেন না, মাঠের বাইরে বসে থাকতে কেমন লাগে—টেলিফোনে এসব নিয়েই কথা বলেছেন বাংলাদেশ-অধিনায়ক

 কেমন কাটছে সময়?
সাকিব আল হাসান: ভালোই সময় কাটছে। মজায় কাটছে। ঘোরাফেরা করছি, শপিংয়ে যাচ্ছি। সঙ্গে কেউ গেলে গেল, নইলে একাই যাচ্ছি। প্র্যাকটিস থাকলে প্র্যাকটিসে যাই। খারাপ না।
 খারাপ না! ম্যাচের পর ম্যাচ আপনাকে খেলানো হচ্ছে না, খারাপ লাগে না?
সাকিব: দলের সঙ্গে থেকেও না খেলতে পারলে খারাপ সবারই লাগে। সময় কাটে না। কিন্তু এখন আমি কী করব? আমাকে না নিলে তো আমার পক্ষে খেলা সম্ভব না। তাই সবকিছু পজিটিভভাবে নেওয়ার চেষ্টা করি। সবকিছুর অভিজ্ঞতা থাকা ভালো। দলের সঙ্গে থেকেও না খেলার অভ্যাসটা আগে ছিল না বললেই চলে, এখন সেটা হচ্ছে।
 এ নিয়ে টিম ম্যানেজমেন্টের সঙ্গে কথা হয়েছে?
সাকিব: কী বলব? এটা দলের সিদ্ধান্ত। এ নিয়ে কথা বলার কিছু নেই। মন খারাপেরও কিছু নেই। দলের পরিস্থিতিটা আমাকেও বুঝতে হবে এবং আমি সেটা বুঝছি। খামোখা চিল্লাচিল্লি করে তো লাভ নেই। খেলছি না বলে আমার এত দুঃখ নেই।
 আপনাকে কেন দলে নিচ্ছে না?
সাকিব: সেটা ডেভ (হোয়াটমোর) ভালো বলতে পারবেন। টিম কম্বিনেশনের কারণেই বলতে পারেন খেলা হচ্ছে না। এক ম্যাচে সর্বোচ্চ চারজন বিদেশিকে খেলানো যায়। এখন এই চারজনের মধ্যে কারা খেলবে, কারা বাদ পড়বে, সেটা প্রয়োজন বুঝে টিম ম্যানেজমেন্ট ঠিক করে।
 দলের সঙ্গে থেকেও এত দিন মাঠের বাইরে বসে থাকার অভিজ্ঞতা সর্বশেষ কবে হয়েছিল?
সাকিব: এ রকম অভিজ্ঞতা হয়নি। আর আগে তো এ রকম জায়গায় খেলতে আসিনি। আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেট আর এখানকার পরিস্থিতি সম্পূর্ণ ভিন্ন। এ রকম জায়গায় খেলছিও প্রথম, মাঠের বাইরেও থাকছি প্রথম।
 আপনি আছেন বলে এবার আইপিএল নিয়ে বাংলাদেশে বাড়তি আগ্রহ ছিল। আপনি না খেলায় সেই আগ্রহেও যেন ভাটা পড়ছে...
সাকিব: কী করব বলুন? আমার তো কিছু করার নেই। দল প্রয়োজন মনে করলেই আমি আবার খেলব।
 দেশে বন্ধুবান্ধব বা পরিবারের সদস্যদের সঙ্গে কথা হয়? তাঁরা কী বলেন?
সাকিব: কথা হয় সবার সঙ্গেই। তবে তাদের সঙ্গে খেলা নিয়ে কথা হয় না। তারা কিছু জানতেও চায় না। তামিমের সঙ্গে তো বলতে গেলে প্রতিদিনই কথা হয়।
 আপনার মা এখন কেমন আছেন?
সাকিব: আছেন ভালোই।
 না খেললে তো পুরো সময়টাই বলতে গেলে অবসরে কাটাচ্ছেন। শপিং-ঘোরাঘুরির বাইরে আর কী করেন?
সাকিব: রুমেই থাকি বেশি। এতেই আমি অভ্যস্ত। বোরিং লাগে না। ইন্টারনেট আছে, টিভি আছে। সময় কেটে যায়।
 দেশে ফিরবেন কবে?
সাকিব: কলকাতা নাইট রাইডার্সের টুর্নামেন্ট শেষ হলে। এখনো দুটি ম্যাচ আছে। এরপর যদি শেষ চারে থাকি...সব শেষ করেই ফিরব। [/বাংলা]

SO no luck for Shakib? Real frustrating situation for us. I wonder how Shakib handle this!

SHakib should handle this by:

The room was dark and the young allrounder lurked in the corner. For too long he had suffered at the hands of "The Gambhirfather" and "The Whatmore". Backed up by SRK, they had neglected him and failed to feed him, leading to an emaciated condition. The only way he could relieve his tension was to pop packaging material bubbles whilst under instructions from a steve Urkel lookalike. No, it wasn't because Tamim took his bhat, rather "The Whatmore" and the Kallis were to blame for his condition. If only Shakib had a gun like Ash. Then he would make the "Coach" pay, even after acting as the makeshift lawnmower for Eden Gardens, eating nothing but "Ghash" they failed to pick him.

The door was ajar, letting a sliver of light stream through. He could hear footsteps reverberating around the building. Whatmore cometh, thought Shakib. He readied his rope and his trusty "Jhata" Jharu. They had confiscated his bat but he'd give them billy'o.

The Whatmore stepped forward. He was a strange creature, his bhuri gleamed and glistened in the little light that was there. Morgan had done a good job with the 'Malish". Shakib was onto him in a flash. Tying up his feet, shakib managed to hoist Whatmore and attach him to the ceiling fan. Then with a yell of rage brandishing his "Jharu" he spanked as he had never done before, blow after blow as the ceiling fan rotated, whatmore was hit. Such a beating had not been seen in the annals of cricket since the great purge of sreesanths by the Harbhajans which consisted of post match slapping.

SUddenly Shakib gave the signal and out of the shadows emerged a large braided figure holding somehting that resembled a mace

"Chris it was him that told us to chuck rocks at your bus"
"Kiss teeth............"
Gayle was onto the Whatmore in a storm of fury. The blows kept coming and the Whatmore was simply bhuna now.

Shakib's uttom-madhom left Whatmore with no choice he had to come to his senses. He would miss the "Malish" but he had to feed Morgan to the Lions.

Shakib Al Hasan to Ferguson, OUT, the ball of the century did not turn as much as this one did. This is some pitch! Three wickets to spin, and Pune continue to wobble. Shakib delivers it round-arm from wide of the crease, gets it to lands short of a length outside off as Ferguson advances. He's already fooled by the length, and he's about to be flabbergasted by the turn. The ball went away as if it doesn't agree with physics. Goswami does the rest. Ferguson won't ever comprehend what the ball did there.

This was possibly Shakib's best performance yet. But looks like the KKR management don't think much of his batting abilities. He was pencilled in at number 8 today.

Gambhir
Kallis
Tiwary
Shakib/Yusuf
Yusuf/Shakib
ten Doeschate
Goswami/Bisla+

This should be KKR's line-up IMO. Don't know why Gambhir is reluctant to open. Even today he said he only opened because Kallis was
injured.

Shakib has the best average and strike rate among the KKR bowlers. Had he played all of the matches he would've been the highest wicket-taker for KKR and possibly challenging for the purple cap. Hope he does something special in the playoffs and the final if KKR make it.

SUddenly Shakib gave the signal and out of the shadows emerged a large braided figure holding somehting that resembled a mace

"Chris it was him that told us to chuck rocks at your bus"
"Kiss teeth............"
Gayle was onto the Whatmore in a storm of fury. The blows kept coming and the Whatmore was simply bhuna now.

Shakib's uttom-madhom left Whatmore with no choice he had to come to his senses. He would miss the "Malish" but he had to feed Morgan to the Lions.

IF KKR hadn't unnecessarily dropped Shakib, they would have a better record. This lineup they had today was their best 1. Having Boucher in there was a waste and Morgan getting chances despite failing was no good. Let's hope Shakib can keep up the good work.

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.

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.

.

Shakib sucks at T20, Morgan got his form back, we all know he's a better batsman than Shakib. If Shakib was given so many chances he would have failed miserably, he's not a quality batsman also his strike rate dropped by a lot under Sid. Fact remains. :)

Also, he has been expensive with the ball, Abdulla is doing a better job than Shakib with the ball, does anyone disagree here? KKR is not Bangladesh that they will play 2 left arm spinners every match. Period.


Some wise words of wisdom for all of you so you dont get carried away.

Eoin Morgan issues Test threat after unbeaten 156 puts Ravi Bopara in the shade
By Lawrence Booth

Last updated at 1:51 AM on 20th May 2011

Comments (0) Add to My Stories Share Eoin Morgan hit an unbeaten 156 for the England Lions against Sri Lanka, then said he would return to the Indian Premier League if he is left out of next week’s first Test in Cardiff.

Watched by England coach Andy Flower and national selector Geoff Miller, the Middlesex batsman comfortably outshone Ravi Bopara, the supposed frontrunner for the vacant No 6 slot in the Test side, as the Lions - boosted by 101 not out from Samit Patel - racked up 394 for four in Derby.

Best foot forward: Eoin Morgan underlined his credentials with an unbeaten 156 for England Lions
England name their squad on Sunday and Morgan - playing his first first-class match since December after a nine-match stint with Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL - said: ‘The side hasn’t been picked yet, but if I’m not chosen, I’ll go back to India.’ and shine up Whatmore's bhuri so there is a hint of reverse swing when he walks (I added the last part)
Bopara contributed a scratchy 17 but has earned brownie points by turning down two offers to play in the IPL.

I hope Morgan does some finishing, here's his profile

Eoin Morgan is an Irish-born Englishman with a reputation for inventive and audacious stroke-play. A compact left-hander, Morgan grew up playing hurling and with his change-up sweeps and pulls, he has clearly taken aspects of the Irish sport into his cricket.

At the age of 23, he shot to prominence on the back of two match-winning innings against South Africa. His bold approach and crisp hitting was reminiscent of the arrival of another English import, Kevin Pietersen, in 2005. With a blend of nous and power, Morgan looks a natural 'finisher' - a role England have struggled to fill for a decade

Obviously the above is a false piece of propaganda from the management. This is why he's really there

Eoin Morgan is an Irish-English "cricketer" known for his inventive methods of bhuri shine and "tel mara" which shot him to prominence during his interactions with Whatmore. The combination of a Whatmorean bhuri and an incessant supply of tel at the KKR base camp ensured Morgan as an instant selection and confirmed starter in the 11. Morgan grew up shining hari patil as well as his brothers' shoes, it appears his ability to shine caught the eye of whatmore, however Whatmore had a different idea of "shine".

"When people talk about shine, they speak of Bata and shoes and reverse swing and jack Nicholson-but that was "The Shining" not the shine."
Whatmore takes a deep breath
"When I saw his abilities I realised straight away he could see to my needs. They don't customise Estee lauder for bhuris and Maybeline is exclusively not for bhuris and I had to improvise. Add to that Morgan's great ability to get ducks, I know my health and bhuri are in good hands. Quite literally."

Morgan has shot to prominence during this IPL with a staggering average. The ability to shine Whatmore's bhuri for 12 matches in a row and even after the team had taken part in "Brad's cake eating challenge" and "Rosgulla challenge" ensured he would be sorely missed. As it stands Morgan will now leave the Lions to rejoin the KKR or Kha Kha Rosgulla as it is known to "The Wilderbeest" Kallis and Whatmore. Shah Rukh Khan declined to comment this time, sying he will comment in the future. Morgan's combination of speed and power have ensured the sheen on bhuris around the world will continue to shine and Morgan looks the "natural Chamcha" a role that the KKR have not had fulfilled until now.

And Whatmore is just sad that Ten Doeschate is one of the best looking (no homo) cricketers in the world, and Whatmore could only dream to look like that.

Morgan doesn't like Ten Doeschate because he is the county's MPV (English County) and is a better batsmen, and bowler than Morgan would ever be.

But above all, I think they have found the best combination when they played Pune. They had 6 bowlers, and they batted down to no.8...

No, completely agree with you. In t20 all you need are a few quick 20s and 30s so allrounders should be in demand rather than specialist batsmen

Just on a more serious note-is there really anything between Morgan and RTD on the county circuit? The only time I find out much is when the ashes are on or when Worcs are playing

Not really, Morgan isn't to big here in the county circut. It's really names like RTD that go around. There was rumor of England wanting him, but he said he wants to do great things with Netherlands (feel sorry for him a little, he just doesn't get the support he needs).

I've met Shakib, and he has a little pot belly... I mean lord, why did you give us bengali's pot bellies!

Any format of the game, you realistically want everyone to be an all rounder, where they can all carry their weight. Seen as though that will never happen, you have to bring as many as you can.

Morgan is known for his improvisation, which does him wonders. But he also get's lucky quiete freqeuntly. Tendo is a right handed version of Tamim (just no Bhuri) and better looking. His ODI average against the G9 are pretty good, a hell of a lot better than any of our players.

Exactly, I mean we don't know the exact reasons, but we do know that KKR have done similar things in the past. Gambhir would also be held responsible to an extent but judging by some of his interviews I'm not sure he knows too much about team selection

In the SA team there was a clique of players according to gibbs(as a source of course there will be doubts) but Kallis, Boucher, De Villiers adn Smith were implicated, which seemed pretty right to me. IMO boucher came in more on the back of Kallis' influence and Whatmore regards kallis very highly, I think he doesn't regard shakib or RTD at all after all they're from "lower class" cricketing countries-it's not about what you do but where you're from. KKR have purchased our players more for the sake of securing Bengali support-but SRK and Co were pretty stupid to think that because many bengalis have seen what KKR are really about-it's about churning out the money, you need a bengali in the background to bring in the crowds or viewers who will be hoping for him to play-then when the KKR have baited the fish that are the supporters they promptly leave the guy out.

The IPL is all about acting and showmanship-Shakib is pretty straight forward and I highly doubt anything these clowns like the administrators coaches and captains say. It's all in the script

I don't think shakib will get dropped on wednesday, it would be sucidal if they did! Their best seam bowler (Lee) isnt performing and that has been thier main problem in this IPL this season. They don't dare to drop him because they don't have anyone half as good as him to replace him with.

They have heavy reliant on spin so they need shakib and abdullah the most!

I think Shakib and Goswami will be dropped from the next match. Shakib will be replaced by Boucher because he didn't take any wickets regardless of his good economy rate. Of-course Balaji will be back with a bang! May be KKR will win the next round but might be eliminated at the Semi-final. I think the final match will be between CSK and Bangaluru...No Shakib, no support --> so who cares if they win or lose!true...

If they drop him, I'm gonna message the KKR page that they are losing 162 million fans, and they will throw stones into Kolkota.

Even check cricinfo, no talk of Bala being replaced, but they yet just manage to get Shakib's name in team news, although in a different tone that he is unlikely to be dropped, rather than telling that he IS in tomorrow's line-up like Kallis, or Lee

Lol
but it's not Kolkata that's to blame it's SRK and his cronies.
They were afraid shakib may have been one of the leading wicket takers-that would have made him more expensive and harder for them to keep-other teams might want to play shakib as a player but KKR have basically got him there as a commercial thing to gain the support of BD

If RTD and Shakib were given proper chances with bat and bowl, they could feature in the top 3 of batting and bowling lists. With Jacque Kallis - RDT - Shakib - Pathan, KKR had the best allrounders at stock; but they were never utilized. They proceeded to the top 4 only because the last 6 teams played crap cricket.

lets look at some of shakibs achievements in compare to other BD players who was lucky enough to have a chance in the IPL

In Terms of Matches

1.Shakib is the only BD player to play more than 1 match in ipl..in fact he played 7!
2.Shakib is the only BD player to be droped and then play a match again!
3.Shakib is the only BD player to play just after he arrived in ipl..didn't have to wait for his turn

in batting terms

4.Shakib is the only BD player to score more than 2 runs in an innings!
5.Shakib is the only BD player who have a SR of over 100 in an innings!
6.Shakib is the only BD player who have hit a 4 in the ipl!

In Bowling terms

7. Shakib is the only BD player to take a wicket in ipl..he took 11 alltogather!
8. Shakib is the only BD player who have Eco rate of under 10 in a match in ipl!

In team terms

9. Shakib is the only BD player to play the 2nd round of ipl..his team is also the only time a bd player's team has made it to the 2nd round

In Fielding terms

Shakib is not the only BD player who was credited for a run out!..and he is not the BD player who took a catch in ipl!!..ironic isn't it!

The saddest part is that KKR used 9 Indian players in their first game against Chennai and benched Tendo, and lost that game by 2 runs. That's beyond comprehension. With a win their they would have come 2nd.

Shakib enjoyed the IPL experience...
------------------------------------------------------
DLF Indian Premier League
'IPL stint was interesting'

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan will return home today after an enjoyable trip in the money-spinning Indian Premier League (IPL).

The all-rounder has impressed many with his left-arm spin in his first appearance in the meet for the Kolkata Knight Riders, who were eliminated from the competition after losing against Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.

Shakib bagged 11 wickets in seven matches with the economy rate of 6.86 but got the opportunity to bat only in three innings. The Tigers skipper however had no complaint about his position in the batting order rather he was excited with the overall experience he gained from the competition.

“I was a little bit nervous in the first game but from the second match onwards I enjoyed every moment. It was really an enjoyable trip for me. I think my bowling performance was not bad and it would have been better if I got more chance to bat. I have no complaints because I think the team planning was right. Main thing is that you have to take the opportunity when it comes to your way,” said Shakib while talking to The Daily Star Sport over phone yesterday.

Rest of the news is here (http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=187365)!

I just saw the highlights of the game. Shakib's bowling was really good. He got the wickets at crucial moments.Too bad kkr missed out on a spot in the champions league(not holding my breath for a wild card entry). Our boy could show the world a bit more glimpse of his talent. Hope Tamim improves his T20 record and get a chance to play in a team next season. He could be really explosive at the top of the order. Just last year his name was pronounced in the same braket with Gayle by English commentators.

I just saw the highlights of the game. Shakib's bowling was really good.

he had 8 to defend in the last over, I expected him to take it to at least past 4 balls. He had the set up to be a hero though very difficult i know but too bad for him and kkr.

not 8 but 6

MI needed 7 to win...

I think kkr's managment + Gambhir are to blame here , because nobody tell shakib that Harbhajan's strenght is to hit in the cow corner so he needs to bowls on the offside ...

Shakib hadn't been used as a finisher before
Using a spinner is always risky esp against another hard hitting spinner

Should have bowled balaji-could have been the only player to lose consecutive matches with a six off the last ball

June 2, 2011, 05:01 AM
tactical error there for sure... Harbhajan can belt the spinners... what probably would have done the trick was some fast short pitch bowling from brett Lee

I was disappointed with the batting of Shakib... he was simply playing a shot every ball... most of the boundaries were edges and could have been out any other day... one could sense the difference in class between Tendoschate and Shakib as a batter

Banglaguy
June 4, 2011, 06:59 AM
Yeah, it's easier in two hit a spinner through Cow's corner than a fast bowler. I think he was picked to bowl it on the basis that he was their best bowler in that game. Probably their best in the tournament. Not wicket wise, but overall

Narine has ridiculous T20 average with the bowl- 12.18 after 16 T20 matches. That's really good, he will def make the squad ahead of shakib. Shakib's inclusion will depend on weather he can deliver with his bat or not, last season he was a bust with the bat. But after having success with the bat in BPL and Asia Cup, I'm pretty sure he'll deliver with the bat.

even if narine gets in ahead of shakib(he shouldnt) why the hell would lee, mccullim and kallis all get ahead? Shakib is the best all rounder in the world and one of the best t20 bowlers in the world.. and he will be the most popular among all overseas players in kolkata among fans if that matters in team selection.

this mcCullum is the bowler or the wicket keeper. they both have the same name i guess. If it is the wK then it will be a tough call for shakib. But narine only needs a poor match or two to make way for shakib.
