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.

They're brother, so of course they have the same name! But it's the wicketkeeping brother, Brendan, who'll be playing for KKR. Yes, it does make it tough for Shakib but I think on current form Shakib would make it in front. Let's see.

well, what sakib has the goes for his favour:

1) Bowled well for KKR last year. And is a quality bowler no doubt
2) Good fielder, you need that in t20, dont really expect the likes of kallis and lee to be a better fielder
3) Batting- Top batting form
4) Did well in Asia Cup, esp. that cameo against India.....superb
5) MOT in BPL T20, a contributing factor ;-)

Even the guyz in ICF forum where saying that Sakib is the best player in KKR but he doesnt get too many chance because the KKR management has a brain the size of a guniea pig, and SRK himself makes some team changes

Add to that -he is a crowd puller now.. Kolkata doesn't have Dada anymore so Shakib should be their main marketing weapon, given the popularity he has in Kolkata..

In fb pages I've seen thousands of Kolkata fans going gaga over Shakib.. Even in PP there are some Indian supporters (not sure whether they are from Kolkata or not) are always defending Shakib. I've seen lots of support for him in ICF too. Most importantly last year whenever Shakib played in kolkata and took wickets the crowd went crazy. And after this Asia cup performance he has become more popular I believe.

narine is just a newcome into the game, I think shakib needs to underperform while narine has to underperform if he has to get a chance because shakib is clearly an experience and proven performer. Plus, he has been in top batting form than almost anyone in the team

pagol-chagol

Shakib will barely get any playing time.

Delange, Narine, Lee, Pattison, Kalis, Mc.
KKR got another new indian spinner this year.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/indian-premier-league-2012/content/current/story/559594.html



Sunil Narine
The Trinidad and Tobago spinner is not a new face to Indian audiences. He emerged from last year's Champions League as one of the players to watch in the future. His stock ball is the offspinner, but he has developed the mystery delivery called the knuckle ball, a variation delivered with a loose wrist and a corkscrew twist of two fingers that makes it grip, turn away from the right hander, and bounce alarmingly. At the Champions League, he confounded Chennai Super Kings on his way to figures of 3 for 8 - a haul that including the wickets of MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina. He's now a regular in West Indies' limited-overs squads and is in the reckoning for the Tests against Australia as well. If picked, Narine could show up for Kolkata Knight Riders only by the end of the month. His base price was US$50,000, but the franchise was willing to fork out US$700,000 to get him.

Marchant de Lange
This soft-spoken South Africa right-arm fast bowler is anything but shy with the ball. It's all raw pace and bounce, as he's capable of bowling consistently at 150kph and above. Kolkata Knight Riders bought him at the auction at his base price of $50,000. A new entrant to international cricket, de Lange showed the touring Australians what he's capable of, nipping out five wickets in a tour game. Some Australia players told Kolkata: "This guy is bowling fireballs". He took seven in an innings on Test debut, making him the most successful Test debutant of 2011. He also showed his temperament in a close Twenty20 against New Zealand in Auckland. With six to defend off the last over, captain AB de Villiers tossed the ball to the inexperienced de Lange. He conceded just three runs and took two wickets in South Africa's heist. Will he be a last-over specialist for Kolkata too?

Narine is not a new comer into the game. He was one of the best bowlers in the Champions league last year, that's why KKR had to pay top dollar to get him. If he was a new comer KKR would have got him real cheap. He already played almost 20 T20 matches and averages under 15.

KKR will want variety in their bowling line up, if Iqbal Abdullah fires like last year than I can see KKR opting for this Narine dude. In order for Shakib to make a good case for him, he has to perform with the bat. I hope they let Shakib bat in the top 5.

:up: If Shakib wants to be a regular then he has to show that he can perform with the bat. They already have many bowling options. Shakib has the added advantage since he's an allrounder, so he's going to have to really take advantage and prove to be 1 of the most reliable batsmen on the team.

When venting our spleen it doesn't really matter I guess, any KKR is fair game now I think(I agree they are not the ones competing with shakib-you're right). They've repeated their policies over and over again-extreme arrogance, snobby etc etc hope the BPL becomes bigger. BD players did well in the BPL even the likes of mahmudullah got in some rapid 40s.


Hope KKR and Pune finish at the bottom

Shakib was dropped after the match was shortened because he is not a specialist twelve-twelve player like the rest of the squad, I believe Marchant "Merchant of Venice" de Laange (someone called him Lungi-insult to lungis actually) is a specialist twelve-twelve player, giving away 36 runs off three overs at a rate of 12, being usually the twelfth man in contests as well regularly. Not to mention his performance being a tragedy of shakespearean proportions

Jump of the hotel room and then get reincarnated either in India or another top cricket-playing countries, and then work his way into the national team and then join IPL. Match guaranteed.

Its the fact that he plays for an underdog national team looked down upon by the whole world as minnow that goes against him. There is nothing he can do. To be honest he doesn't belong there.

A player of his calibre can do better than be 12th man doing drinks run for a mediocre team in a over commercialized tournament.

I will shut up about this whole affair now and let them run their teams. At the end of the day, the teams all want to win and pick the XI that they think gives them the best chance of doing so. And if it doesn't come off it's their heads on the line. All that matters for me is that Shakib and Tamim perform when they are playing for Bangladesh. Getting aggravated and worked up over the domestic tournament of another country is silly and embarrassing.

He is good enough dude but not being utilized properly assume if you take Tendulkar in a BPL team and make him come down 6th down what value he will provide you?

There are two strategies that teams make use of in IPL one buying all quality foreigners so that other teams cannot go for it and other is buying low quality Indian player for very high price because of too much competition. KKR is former CSK is later. Only MI got it right but they were bamboozled by Dada's captaincy today.

And regarding the stats, it wasn't taken into acount who the KKR were facing when Shakib was playing. SHakib's performance was good enough, to claim almost a cause and effect and relate the losses to shakib's presence isn't really valid-there are also confounding factors like the perormance of others so that conclusion of "shakib played such and such matches and they won such and such" is not a valid statement

^^ That is the best sig I have seen in BC for a while .

Back to Shakib's inclusion . KKR rate Kallis and Brett lee above him . Kallis is a waste in T20 . Slow starter , will hit the occasional boundary and nothing much to write or say about his mediocre T20 bowling. Royal Challengers Bangalore , realised this and got rid him of after the second season IIRC.

Lee is selected more for his reputation than his bowling . He is a poor man's malinga when it comes bowling yorkers . At the start of the innings bowls too full or too short which ends up going over the keepers head for four byes.

I also feel this new coach of KKR , Bayliss doesn't know much about Shakib and being an Australian , would anyday perfer Aussies or SA players over Shakib .

So much support for Shakib to be included in the team is scaring me to death what if he fails to perform considering the immense amount of pressure and expectations :(

"Don't worry, No Sugar"

Agree with Patriot, spot on

We've been monitoring alot of bench warming, so much for "Shakib IPL performance monitoring"

Either way want KKR to lose and shakib do well. KKR beyond supporting now, more fun bashing KKR than supporting it

Hope Pune play tamim, wouldn't mind supporting pune

Knowing Kolkata's great management , I don't think Shakib might play today . This Narine guy might be selected ahead of him . He is over rated and is just an updated version of Ajantha Mendis . Once batsman get used to his straight ones , I wont be surprised if the crowds start wearing helmets once Narine comes in to bowl.
Good guess bro.

NO SHAKIB TODAY. INSTEAD THEY PICK NARINE :mad:

Sunil Narine fully deserves his place in the starting XI -- but Shakib deserves it even more. KKR should've dropped the pathetic Brett Lee and Jacques Kallis because they are USELESS at the T20 format at this stage of their careers. Shakib-Al-Hasan, Eoin Morgan, Ryan ten Doeschate and Sunil Narine are by far KKR's top 4 international stars.

I find the whining to be quite funny it's akin to a giant mob of locusts whining and buzzing through the air eating and destroying everything in sight
Cricinfo have had no choice to publish the whining due to the sheer volume. Some of the comments also have no logic but they support shakib so it's pretty awesome: "Why didn't shakib get picked, look what you did KKR, Free Willy killed his trainer in distress" not to mention conspiracy theories, references to the bermuda triangle. Hope it gets wackier. It's no longer about credibility, it's about making them suffer, it's about KKR lsing

Hope they don't play shakb and get caned

WOW! Another defeat for KKR. Must be something wrong with this team's dressing room.... All the stars, like the King Khan himself!!! I do not think Shakib or RTD can do any Ukas Fucas Abra ka Dabra.......and change KKR's loosing trend. The other guys need to perform too. I would rather sit in the dug out, chill-out, take the money and enjoy some rest rather than taking the blame for not performing for the team if I were Shakib or RTD!!! Good luck for KKR in the future.

1) Sour-Grappers: People that are saying I don't give a rat's *** about ipl because shakib is not getting picked, ipl blows.

2) Whiners: People that are upset about the whole thing because they are true fans of Shakib. Obviously it's not about ipl, its about Shakib and kkr's mistreatment/blindness/stupidity or w/e you want to call it. They are complaining because they want to see him play. He deserves to play.

3) Real Schmucks: People that are bitching about other people's "whining." Saying things like, "it's ipl. Shak has nothing to prove. Blah blah." We get it! And you just expect us to be OK with it? No. Because it's not ****ing OK. OK? Do you get that? They can't just overlook our players because they play for Bangladesh. Those days are gone. It's our effing time. We have players that are good enough to compete along side the bests. It's about our pride. If you don't have the courage, the energy or slight interest to whine then you shouldn't even come here. This is a freaking fan site. And people can do whatever they want with their personal twitter / Facebook.

the aus,sa guys you are talking about their ipl team didn't qualify for clt20, in that case they are free to play

All these Shakib fiasco, things might start to get personal for Gambhir and the KKR Management.
Not only back to back loses but also for the team selection, these guys have come under fire from all corners. Since the DADA issue (with KKR Management !!), no other player has stirred so much interest about their non-selection the way Shakib did with last two games.

Stage is set.
Team is at a loss.
The Captain is Clueless.
The Critics are loud and vocal.
The Management is under pressure.
Time for Bangladeshi Superman to vini, vidi vici !!

Gambhir is under tremendous pressure. He lost his VC role with the national team. KKR lost the first couple of matches and his team selection came under the lenses. His batting has been awful and his captaincy hasn't been anything remarkable.

Now, if Shakib is picked for the next game and gives a winning performance, things could turn very interesting from there on. Not only he will be hailed as the Hero (all the hype is already created), if the trend continues for next few games, he might find himself to be a contender for KKR's leadership role !!

But if he fails, it might be very hard for him to get another game !!

patriot
April 9, 2012, 06:05 AM
If Shakib does play , his next game is againt Gayle and co . Definitely not the opponents he would want to play against at his first match in the tournament.

I always feel Shakib gets a bit nervous bowling to ultra destructive batsman notably Gayle , Shane Watson and of late Afridi . He tends to try new things to these guys ,either by trying to bowl a spinner's yorker (which ends up becoming a full toss) or in an attempt to limit damage , tries to bowl the batsman on the leg stump which either results in a wide or a leg side half volley .

The good thing is , Shakib miya is in supreme form with the bat . Any thrashing he receives at the hands of Gayle , Kohli or de villiers he shouldnt have a problem paying it back with his bat and especailly when the oppositon has mickey mouse T20 bowlers namely Vinay Kumar , AB Mcdonald and Daniel Vettori (before you jump on me click on the link)

(http://www.espncricinfo.com/nzvbdesh2010/engine/current/match/423786.html)

As a bonus if he does keep things simple to Gayle , there is every chance gayle might scoop up a few in the inner circle or give him a return catch . Hoping for the best .

He got that injury during the BPL , so had plenty of time to recover. A couple of Indian newspapers have reported Chris Gayle showing no visible discomfort while batting in the nets. AND this was before the Delhi Daredevils game . So I fully expect him to play the KKR game . Dilshan Bhai is also back in the house . Good luck KKR.

That'd be great. Shak has voiced over the fact that he needs some rest. He can have a nice time resting up, and watching IPL from the best seats in the house.

If he plays, more practice for him.

Either way, Shak has nothing to lose.

That's the point. Pak players will want to play in BPL! and don't underestimate loitta when it comes to money making deals. His brain is very nicely corupt and comes good at a time when money plays big deal.

Lok man it doesn't matter even if he does well they'll still kick him out when they want, he was player of BPL and asia cup do you think one performance against RCB will change KKR's mindset?

They're stuffing our players up big time. Don't trust KKR. It's exactly what I though and it's been like this from before. The guy hasn't had match pratcie in the IPL and the first over he'll bowl will potentially be to gayle at night with increased dew making it harder for spinners

What batting order do you think would be appropriate for KKR? I know most people want Shakib at no.5, but what about the others? Where would you place them?

Even though it saddens me to see Shakib not played in every match, it is always interesting to see him play for teams which are not totally dependent on him; to see how he adjusts to being a (valuable) cog in the machinery rather than the fulcrum on which the team turns. It raises the question whether Shakib performs better when he is in 'savior' mode than when he is expected to just contribute handily.

Ajfar
April 10, 2012, 10:28 AM
KKR still don't know how to use yusuf Pathan properly, and they are still underestimating Shakib and RTD's batting abilities. Shakib and RTD are the guys who will help build psrtnership in the middle of the innings and keep the scorecard ticking. Today was the perfect day to send RTD or Shakib up the order let them bat in a few overs. And save yusuf for later on.

Navo, I think KKR is using Pathan in a wrong position. Pathan should come during the end overs and hit those 6s without any kind of pressure of building an innings.Like the way KRB has used Russel.. of course in matches where you see the run rate is below average you can send players like Pathan to fire.. The order should be:

1.Kallis
2.Gambhir
3.Bisla
4.Tiwari
5.RTD/ Shakib
6.RTD/Shakib
7.Pathan
8. Shukla
9.Bhatia
10. Lee
11. Abdullah

Also I think you dont need both RTD and Shakib in all the games so depending on the pitch they can bench either of them and select Narine/De Lagne..These 2 bowlers should get matches to prove themselves as well. 1 match should not be an indicator of any player's caliber..

That's what KKK can do to a man's confidence. Only in kkr where they take a in form, confident player and rip their heart out.

Shakib has nothing to prove. He is still the best ALR.

You send him in on the 18th over and bowl him on the 16th over, really? I mean who are getting back at? If you can't utilize your players it's your loss.

I enjoyed watching Gambhir bat, played with class today. Lee was a beast. Balaji bowled well, expect him to start the next match as well. Really expected to see some fireworks from Gayle and a Gayle-Shakib battle esp. considering how Gayle clobbered Shakib in the previous IPL, but that didn't happen.

KKR are under utilising Shakib when it comes to batting, he should move up the order ahead of Yusuf Pathan who has been awful lately.

And regarding PWI, I don't see Tamim playing soon. The game is in a weeks time in Bangalore. If Tamim do get a chance(s), I think it will be at the end of the league stage. But I'll see, If PWI fail miserably they might consider him at the top. The Bangalore stadium is really small, so Tamim can definitely whack 'em out of the park! :)

A very average performance from Shakib today. As for being under-utilised with the bat, he needs to make the best of whatever opportunity he gets and earn a promotion for himself. 4 off 4 won't do anything for him. He can't expect any favours especially with the MadeInBD tag he is carrying. I just hope he finds the venom back in his bowling before returning for national duty. His bowling has been ordinary of late.

If they are expecting him to score 15 off 3 balls kind of innings a 6 or 7, then they might as well drop him. Send Gambhir or anyone such at #7 and ask them to do the same, you would see similar results. Shakib is NOT a slogger.

Not that I care much about his IPL performance, but they're wasting them that lower down the order. He batted well in BPL because he consistently came at no. 3/4.

patriot
April 11, 2012, 12:53 AM
Shakib is a much better batsman than Manoj Tiwary and needs to come at number 4 .

If KKR to succeed they need to stick to this team for at least another couple of matches . No point having Iqbal Abdullah who brings nothing to the team to be honest . Bisla showed good attacking instinct with the bat and certainly is a better bat than Kalam Miya for the moment.

RTD had one of those rare games but I am sure given his class he will play some good knocks for the team in the coming matches .

Narine , Mc Kalam and Morgan can continue to warm the benches.

Apart from all the pressure of expectations from Fans and Media.....if you send a # 4/5 to bat at 7 and make him bowl 18 & 20 Th over in his first match, that too after keeping him sitting for two matches...while both are lost.... What do you expect that player to do?? He must be worried for damage control, than to perform normally...that's an abnormal situation for any player..
