If Sakib plays rest of the IPL matches he will get the purple or idk what color cap for the highest wckts
<br />Posted via BC Mobile Edition (Android)

If he gets the chance to bat in first four for the rest of the matches then he also has the chance to get the orange cap. lolz they need to make a new cap with combination of two colors unless he choses to wear both. :p

KKR's next game is against Punjab at home . No prizes for guessing Shakibs inclusion in the team . Punjab are not the greatest team in this years IPL and if its same wicket they will be playing , expect our superman to have another great performance.

Congrats Shak! He has established himself firmly as KKR's premier spinner ahead of Narine, Yusuf and Abdullah. Batting was a bit shaky but the pitch was a difficult one and he didn't have much time to get his eye in. Hopefully he goes from strength to strength from here on. Purple cap, or whatever colour the bowling one is, should be his personal target.

I woke up for that slog sweep!! Really disappointing stuff from him. He knows it. But you guys need to calm down. Sound like you're talking a about ashraful. This is Shakib al Hasan we are speaking off!!

Don't care if kkr don't pick him next game. If they think they lost the game because of him than they can screw off. They staked the line up with out form batsmen.

I think for Shakib Al Hasan, the responsibility in bowling comes in naturally. When it comes to batting he wants to lead from the front and take the team home but for some reason, in the star studded KKR team mates alongside him, he hasnt been able to take that responsibility on himself or probably is confused how to go about it. He is class, he'll figure it out.

It really doesn't matter if he doesn't gets picked up for the next game....for heaven's sake, he's the no. 1 all-rounder in both odi and test format....on top of that....he has BPL and the next upcoming Pakistan series to worry about....Sure, IPL has money, but cricket comes last in this league.

There is a heightened security status for our stay in Chandigarh and a trip to the nearby Nandos turns into a mini military operation. I have a good catch-up with Shakib and Binga [Brett Lee] over some chicken and a few drinks. Shakib has a great outlook on cricket and he is the perfect guy to have a laugh with today.

I have a feeling that Shakib will play tomorrow since Eden Gardens pitches are slow and low. I have a feeling that Shakib will mainly play in the home matches. If he wants to find a spot in the away matches, he's going to have perform with the bat. Also he can't afford to relax with the ball. He should try to take 5fers and scores 50's whenever he can. Then there is no way KKR can drop the guy.

That's too much to ask for.. Why does he have to do that?? He doesn't need to prove anything just to get few more matches in IPL.. He is an excellent player and all he have to do is maintain his standard.. All I want is not to play those stupid shots or give away too many runs.. If he can maintain a good economy rate and contribute a fair amount with the bat that's good enough.. If he does something above that, which he is well capable of would just be great..

I think it would be a great thing. The Indian players would have to work much harder to get the 6 spots then they do now. Also it would make people watch it more since the game would be of higher quality. It doesn't really help that they don't let Pakistanis play since they were exciting to watch in the 1st IPL.

I hope you are right. Would really hate to see him get left out on the eden gardens surface.

Shak hasn't quite learnt the art of T-20 batting. He takes way too many risks instead of playing sensibly. The James Franklin innings for Mumbai should be a perfect example of how to build a t-20 innings for him. Franklin played out six dot balls in the opening over and started very slowly but he didn't get frustrated and give his wicket away slogging across the line. As a result later on when he got used to the wicket he played some really awesome shots to get his strike rate up over 150

[বাংলা]টিম হোটেলের কফিশপের টেবিলে রাত পৌনে ন’টায় দুই মূর্তি। আলুভাজায় কামড় দিতে দিতে গৌতম গম্ভীর এবং এই মুহূর্তে নাইট অধিনায়কের ‘ঘনিষ্ঠতম’ দোসর বিজয় দাহিয়া। নাইটদের ‘থিঙ্কট্যাঙ্ক’। আলোচনার বিষয়বস্তু আন্দাজ করা খুব কঠিন নয়। ইডেন থেকে আরও দু’পয়েন্ট ঘরে তোলার নীল-নকশা। টিম মালিক ভুবনেশ্বর থেকে এসে ঘাঁটি গেড়েছেন বাইপাসের ধারের হোটেলে। কটকে জেতার পর সে ভাবে উৎসব হয়নি। আজ ইডেনে জিতলে রাতে হওয়ার কথা।

এই যদি নাইটদের সুখের সংসারের বহিরঙ্গ হয়, অন্তরঙ্গ ছবিটা খুব স্বস্তিদায়ক নয়। আড়ালে-আবডালে বলা শুরু হয়ে গিয়েছে, প্রথম এগারোয় ঢোকার জন্য পারফরম্যান্সই কি শেষ কথা হচ্ছে? মনবিন্দর বিসলা বা রজত ভাটিয়া কী ভাবে ম্যাচের পর ম্যাচ খেলে যাচ্ছেন আর বাইরে বসে থাকছেন ফর্মে থাকা লক্ষ্মী বা ইকবাল আবদুল্লা, সেই প্রশ্ন শিবিরে ইতিউতি উড়ছে। নতুন দুর্ভোগ বলতে লক্ষ্মীপতি বালাজি। হ্যামস্ট্রিংয়ে চোট লেগেছে কটকে। রাতের খবর, আগামী ছ’দিন মাঠের বাইরে থাকতে হচ্ছে তাঁকে। তীব্র ক্ষোভ ঘনীভূত ব্রেন্ডন ম্যাকালামকে নিয়েও। ডেকানের বিরুদ্ধে ফিরতি ম্যাচে তাঁর বসার সম্ভাবনা প্রবল। সেক্ষেত্রে চার বিদেশি সাকিব, কালিস, ব্রেট লি এবং সুনীল নারিন। বসবেন দুশখাতে, মর্গ্যান, ম্যাকালাম। ইউসুফ পাঠানের টানা সাত ম্যাচে রান নেই তবু ম্যানেজমেন্টের সহানুভূতি তাঁর দিকে। সিইও বেঙ্কি মাইসোর যেমন বললেন, “ইউসুফ টিমে থাকা মানে যে কোনও বিপক্ষ চাপে থাকে। ওর ফর্মে ফিরতে স্রেফ দশটা বল লাগবে।”

কবে যে সেই দশটা বল আসবে কেউ জানে না। অদ্ভুত ভাবে বসিয়ে রাখা হয়েছে লক্ষ্মীকে। ফিট হয়ে যাওয়া সত্ত্বেও কটকে নিয়ে যাওয়া হয়নি। ইডেনে টানা চার দিন প্র্যাক্টিসের পরেও লক্ষ্মী জানেন না, আজ ইডেনে প্রথম এগারোয় তাঁর জায়গা আছে কি না। সে রকম কোনও ইঙ্গিতও নেই। বরং এটাই ঠিক হয়ে আছে চোট পাওয়া বালাজির জায়গায় খেলবেন বাঁ হাতি পেসার জয়দেব উনাদকট। যাঁকে কিংস ইলেভেন ম্যাচে ইডেনে খেলিয়ে কোনও লাভ হয়নি। ৭ ম্যাচে ৮ পয়েন্ট নিয়ে টিম আপাতত স্বস্তির নিরাপদ আশ্রয়ে। হয়তো আজও ইডেনে দু’পয়েন্ট আসবে। কিন্তু প্রথম এগারো নিয়ে নাইটদের চিরকালীন টালবাহানা আইপিএল ফাইভেও চলেছে। এই ‘ট্র্যাডিশন’-এ কোনও পরিবর্তন নেই।

ইডেনের উইকেট নিয়ে বিশেষজ্ঞদের মতামত হল, এটা টি-টোয়েন্টির উইকেট নয়। স্বয়ং সৌরভ গঙ্গোপাধ্যায় নিজের কলামে লিখেছেনও সেটা। দোষ পড়ছে কিউরেটর প্রবীর মুখোপাধ্যায়ের উপর। কেন বল যাচ্ছে না, কেন ১৩০-১৪০-এর বেশি উঠছে না, ইত্যাদি। আসল গল্পটা একেবারে অন্য রকম। যেখানে গম্ভীর যা চাইছেন তা-ই দেওয়া হচ্ছে। যেমন দাবি, তেমন উইকেট। স্লো উইকেট হলে নাকি নাইটরা ঘরের মাঠের সুবিধা পাবে। স্পিনার দিয়ে কাজ হাসিল হবে। তা হলে ইডেনে অন্তত ব্রেট লি-কে খেলানোর কোনও মানে হয় না। অনেক ভাল বাজি হতে পারতেন বাইরে থাকা ইকবাল আবদুল্লা। ক্রিকেটীয় স্ট্র্যাটেজির দিক দিয়ে হয়তো স্লো উইকেটের ভাবনা ঠিক। ‘স্টেইন’গানকে সামলাতে ঘূর্ণিই ভাল। সবুজ উইকেটে স্টেইনকে খেলা নিয়ে কে আর বিনিয়োগ করবে?
অগত্যা ডেকান-বধের মঞ্চটা হল, আগে সঙ্গকারার টিমকে ব্যাট করতে পাঠাও। ১২৫-১৩০ এর মধ্যে আটকে রাখো। তারপর কালিস-গম্ভীরকে দিয়ে ওপেন করিয়ে রানটা ১৮ বা ১৯ নম্বর ওভারে তুলে ফেলো। এই অঙ্ক মাথায় রেখেই আজ ইডেনে নামবে নাইটরা। প্রতিপক্ষ টানা পাঁচটা ম্যাচ হেরেছে। এমনিতেই টিমের মনোভাব তলানিতে। ধরে নেওয়া হচ্ছে, আরও ১১টা ম্যাচ বাকি থাকলেও এই ডেকানের দুমড়ে-মুচড়ে যাওয়া মেরুদণ্ড আর সোজা হবে না। অবশ্যই অন্য রকম ভাবছেন কুমার সঙ্গকারা। এখনও ডেকান অধিনায়কের মূলমন্ত্র, ‘হাল ছেড়ো না বন্ধু’। সন্ধেয় টিম হোটেলে বসে আনন্দবাজারকে বললেন, “এই ফর্ম্যাটের মজাটাই হল একবার হারতে শুরু করলে আপনি হারতে পারেন টানা কয়েকটা ম্যাচ। কিন্তু মাত্র তিন ঘণ্টায় যখন-তখন বদলে দিতে পারেন অঙ্ক। ইডেনে একটা ম্যাচ জিতলেই আমাদের টিম ঘুরে দাঁড়াতে পারে। সেটা যে কালই হবে না, কী করে বুঝছেন?” জানাচ্ছেন, পাঁচটা ম্যাচে হারলেও অন্তত তিনটে ম্যাচে জেতার মতো অবস্থায় ছিল ডেকান। স্রেফ ভাল ফিনিশারের অভাবে মাচ বেরোয়নি।
ইডেনে বেরোবে বলেও কোনও গ্যারান্টি নেই। হেরো টিমকে কে আর মনে রাখে? জমা তো হয় বাতিলের খাতায়। ‘উল্টে দেখুন পাল্টে গেছে’ এক্ষেত্রেও হওয়ার সম্ভাবনা কম।

not only that they were replaying his celebration over and over again after getting the 1st wicket in this season :waiting:.. The commentators were soooo excited:-/..I don't get all these craziness for YP:-/:-/ ..

Remember, in the match where Shakib got MOM- it was his 6 and 4 which brought down the equation to 6 from 9 yet everyone was praising Pathan's 4.. Someone was saying I enjoyed Pathan's 4 more than Shakib's 6 :waiting::waiting:

When there are too many options, it's a matter of picking those who have already proven themselves and have been "getting the job done" instead of picking those who "have the potential to do equally well or slightly better". Iqbal is a local player and has been doing well for a while and Narine grabbed his opportunity to return a Pfeiffer in the match where Shakib picked only a single wicket. On top of that, KKR are winning. So why try to fix something that isn't broken?

There's a similar reason for repeatedly not picking Elias or anyone else instead of Razzak in the Bangladesh national XI.

Shakib should return to Bangladesh and take his desired break. And sign a full contract with a county team whether its Essex or any other team I am not bothered. As long as he is playing that's what we care.

But Shakib did pick up 3 wickets and also 2 wickets before that match whereas Narire picked only 1 till then.. Still They trusted Narine and the next match he got the 5er.. If they showed the same confidence in Shakib he could've done better in many occassions .. mot kotha Shakib ke ora etto patta dai na.. or upor oder shei confidence nai jotota Cullum/Narine/Kallis/ Lee er upor achhe.. tai ora match er por match kharap koreo chance pai jekhane Shakib avg and sometimes above avg perform koreo chance paina..ek e karone Tamim o chance paina.. oder shei credibility hoito ekhono toiri hoini..

For that, Shakib needed to perform with the bat, but failed miserably. Even the 10-ball 16 that he made in that one game where he won the MoM award wasn't sufficient - he should have stayed till the end and seen it off. Narine plays as a bowler, so for a guy like Shakib, the expectation is that he will contribute with both ball and bat.

Tamim is different - no BPL performance to back him up, Ganguly won't be dropped and Ryder has done OK.

Ok, we know that he have to perform with both bat and ball and we fans were utterly disappointed and angry with his poor show with the bat.. But I'm thinking from KKR's point of view now..if performance was their criteria of selection then how come Kallis is getting chance after chance without doing well with both bat and ball at the same time.. KKR lost one game particularly for Kallis where he gave away 17 runs and scored 0 but did he get dropped the next match?? no.. same goes gor McCullum.. He has been extremely poor with bat but still he is getting chance.. soo it's not about performance it's about the big names.. They just wait for a reason to drop Shakib and get the big names as they have more confidence on them than Shakib..

Same logic goes for warriors as well.. Dada was really poor in many matches, even Ryder.. But they didn't want to take risk with Tamim..

Again, that's what happens when you hire way more than you can field. There are arguments both for and against Shakib and Tamim. At the end of the day though, both teams seem to have found combinations, or at least close to combinations that are working for them. Unfortunately, neither Shakib nor Tamim seems features in them.

It's better Shakib doesn't make himself available for next year because no matter how he performs he will still not get picked for the playing XI by any team.. It's just their mindset.. Things might change if he can do something extraordinary and win KKR few matches...

May 2, 2012, 12:22 PM
just for the convenience , here is the report from Joy Bhattacharya

Strong performance in Chennai

The Chepauk has special memories – this was the venue where the new unit of KKR played for the first time in 2011 and lost a really tight game by just two runs. So, it was especially sweet to go back there and win a close one.

It wasn’t the hottest of days- but the humidity was extremely high – and even the reserves would have lost 2 to 3 kilos of fluids running towels, drinks and instruction to the boys on the field. The hallmark of a team in sync is how well the players outside support the team in the middle. Shakib – one of the brightest stars in world cricket – would have probably never sat out a match in his life. But his attitude and team spirit is amazing. To see him arm in arm with Sunil Narine, giving him tips on sub-continental pitches makes me realize why cricket is such a special game – and why Shakib will one day be remembered as one of the greats of the game.

Everybody is completely exhausted but in fabulous spirits on the way back - and there is the usual good natured grumbling on the room numbers allotted as we drive to the hotel from Kolkata airport. Some want to stay on the same floor as friends – others are superstitious about the number – and another group just want to cause mayhem. I watch the fun and let the harried hotel staff handle it.

Vijay and a group comprising Rajat, Bisla, Das and Sangwan had a great excursion this morning to Dakhineshwar temple. Some of the international cricketers – Kallis, Tendo and Morgan will be teeing off this afternoon – while a few will be at work shooting a commercial. For once, most have a day off – and given the schedule – they really deserve the break

KKR's insistence on McCullum is the same with Bangladesh & Ashraful albeit at a much, much smaller scale, hoping to click soon. Even if they feel Shakib is not good enough to be in the starting XI, I can't understand why they won't try out Morgan for a game or two. And moreover, Bisla, their WK, had 2-3 consecutive good games with the bat.

Just shows KKR management has no balls to be innovative. They are heavy reliant on Gambhir who's doing the bulk of their run scoring. Disaster coming up soon?

I'm not that impressed with narine-he bowled well against punjab but other than that he's been a "One wicket pony" in the other matches. Add to that when his novelty factor wears off and he faces a guy with a big reach like KP, he'll struggle. Punjab hung back against him which is why they couldn't smother the turn.

That's your take-all the grapes I've had have been sweet:)
From my experience playing and watching, I think Narine will struggle against guys who use their feet or have a big reach. Other than that 5 wicket haul if you saw narine got the other wickets most were either in the last over where the batsmen are simply going crazy with no regard for their wicket

Mendis was a far more talented bowler than narine and even he faded out. Fact is from a spinners point of view at a professional level variations in flight and pace are far more important in getng wickets than massively turning googlies and whatnot

In T20 its far more important to keep runs in check than get wickets. His economy rate is up there in the top 3 I think, Malinga is up there. He picks up wickets in the end because Gambhir saves him for the end because so far he has done an awesome job of keeping it tight. So it sense for the captain to save him for the end. Offcourse players go for slogs at the end, thats the number 1 reason every bowler picks up wicket at the end not just narine. Sure only time will tell wheather he is a one hit wonder or not but at least for now give him some credit.

I love Narine bowling action, there's just something about it that makes it nice to watch

A bowler who takes wickets is vital in t20 cricket-the impact a wicket has with a new batsman coming in, taking a bit of time to get set as well the overall loss of momentum is often overlooked.

In fact many teams have started slow but with wickets in hand have been able to surge at the end-White and Sangakkara's partnership comes to mind, whereas in most IPL matches most teams who have lost 3 or 4 quick wickets have had to slow down and had not posted large totals.

Cricket is a game played in partnerships, not just batting but also bowling. Breaking partnerships are crucial and even a guy like ganguly who took the wicket of KP in the DD match, had he been slightly more expensive it would have been acceptable as had KP faced 30 more balls he would have only accelerated and in the long term a 30 bal 70 is more damaging than a 7 ball 20 (usually)

Narine undeoubtedly has a good economy rate and in t20 cricket like you said that is a valuabale asset but if that is the case he isn't really that much more special than any other bowler. I would rather have a guy who gives away 30 runs off 4 overs but takes a couple of wickets-of players who if set could potentially score another 50 or so off the last 3 overs off other bowlers. So from a personal point of view I watch a bowlers economy rate sure-but if that bowler isn't much of a partnership breaker then my respect diminishes significantly.

I think in a couple of years' time Narine will get tonked-but at this moment in time I think batsman are more scared of his media hyped "enigma" more than his actual ability. I'd like to see more batsman take up the attack to him and use their feet rather than hang back in their crease.Punjab that day were woeful tehnically, neither forward nor back, just playing from the crease combined with Narine bowling extremely well that day (credit's due where it's due). I was hoping D Hussey would face more of Narine- unfortunately our Shakib got to bowl more to him.

TIme will tell as you said

BTW, ON TOPIC: I think Sunil Narine is resp. for sakib's exclusion. If narine wasnt there I cud gurantee sakib wouldve played at least 10-12 matches. Sakib took 6 wickets and at a RR of less than 6 which is excellent. If he played all the matches he wudve gotten 20 wickets by now, same cudve been told about sakib last year.

He fell in the wrong team without a question, not because of the competition but because the team management hardly shows any respect to Sakib. A guy that crowns the no. 1 spot in both tests and ODIs with hardly much contention and in sublime form as shown in Asia Cup and you prefer to keep him sitting in the dugout?

Sakib did well and he should be given the respect he deserves, nowadays ive seen him getting a lot of attention by the media. This shows that the cricket world finally accepts that he is a class act. Wether he peforms in IPL or not, he is still a World Class player in the jersey that really matters.

I think it's pretty immature and pathetic the way people have been reacting to Shakib and Tamim being left out. KKR and Pune are free to pick who they please and if they don't think either of them fits into their playing combinations, then so be it. There's really no sense in trying to go smell conspiracy in everything or accuse the captain of racism. These are simply ridiculous accusations.

The truth is, these teams are getting what they would have out of these two players from other guys. Not getting picked for your IPL XI doesn't mean anything as far as your abilities are concerned. It doesn't belittle Tamim or Shakib at all, but all this whining from the fans does.

I look at KKR and I see a struggling team finally getting on their feet under new leadership after a couple of seasons of failure. Narine has been a great addition and Gambhir has led from the front/with the bat. Some of the local batsmen (e.g. Das) have been good. There is still a lot more work to do and they probably still haven't figured out their best combination, but they have done extremely well considering their past in this tournament; not to mention the way they have bounced back after a couple of initial hiccups this year.

So for a team that is almost topping the table, they seem to be getting most things right and the management will only do what they feel is best for the team.

funny how people talk about the payment and paid vacation. I dont think these money will do anything to our cricket but more for the interest of the players

What we would really want is that our players get into action, thats why I was so keen on the players like mushy, mash, nasir, tam-sha to play in Big Bash. And mind you, the cricket quality in BBL is much better. IPL is just a tournament for comercialization. I mean seriously, karbon kamaal catch? Even mor hideos, DLF maximum. Citi moment of success? Srsly what are these. In BBL every player that plays are quality players and even the non intl players are way better than the locals in the IPL.

The reason why the fans have been reacted like this is because simply of the lack of cricket. Our fans want the boys to be in action. As we have no intl matches we want to see tamim and shakib in IPL as a replacement, and as the saying goes, Duder shaad ghole metano, is perfect for this situation. If there was some intl cricket going on then we wudnt mind to much

SAkib needs to play as many matches as Narayon to prove your statement either right or wrong.
Who knows how lethal Sakib could hv been if he had that many opportunities and that much support as Narayon got?
Although Narayon has been really good but do remember that he is still a new product, once his techniques get exposed who knows what will happen to him,may be he will become Mendis 2 or he will carry on successfully (that I wish).
Me as a cric fan I rely on those who improve their game match by match & become from average to top class rather than players like Ash,Mendis.

I'm not talking about IPL only actually.. Narine looks pretty promising.. ok I'm not a cricket bodhha but what I understand is Narine turns the ball both ways which makes it hard for the batsmen to pick..not everyone is Mendis /Ashraful.. look a Murali.. Narine could reach that height.. Shakib's action is pretty straightforward it's his accuracy and the wise mix of flight and variation which gives him wickets..And what bothers me more is in recent times Shakib's bowling is not going that well.. Razzak did better than him in both BPL and Asia Cup..

For those comparing Narine with Mendis, you're doing a good job of insulting Mendis. Narine other than that 5 wicket haul has done nothing of note. Mendis performed in all forms not just two IPl games but if that's the yardstick then t20 internationals are also

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PpLGpdwC9w

I think people have forgotten how talented and successful Mendis was-Narine has been hyped massively and for someone as talented as mendis to go "missing" won't be too surprised if DOuble G's soulmate Narine follows the same route

As it is the vitriol should largely be directed at DOuble G unit not Narine-personally like WI players

It would appear "Ganguly the spin playing merchant being in the dark against Narine" being a case for Narine's excellence-is quite weak. Mendis did betteragainst players who were still playing. I rate Ganguly as the weakest player of spin out of the fab four-laxman is probably the best though under-rated

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYehlgqpMSA&feature=related
The final of the asia cup-you'll notice Mendis had far more variation not only in making it go both ways but also in flight and varying his pace

And for those bagging mashrafe and saying he failed etc etc-we mentioned before Lee has gone for 24+ runs many times in an over as has many other players.

Here's another example
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sdwswou3k7U&feature=related

SOme of us are ready to jump onto our players' backs as soon as they stuff up as though we've been waiting all along-even if Tamim had failed in a solitary match that would in no way be an argument against him playing as others have failed far more badly

Mar Umpire the comparison is not about how talented mendis/narine is or how succesful they were at the beginning of their career. Mendis was the last so called 'mistery' spinner to make a lot of noise and than batsmans figured him out. So when people are comparing him to mendis they are talking about will he be another 'mendis'. As in how long will it be before batsmans figure him out and he loses his so called 'mystery'.

Of course he was hard done by. The #1 allrounder not being able to be picked even is pretty ridiculous regardless of how well they're doing. KKR's team is pretty stacked so it's not surprising. It would be a good thing if KKR trades Shakib to another team who need him so he can get more chances.

Australia fast bowler Brett Lee, better known for dishing out chin music on the green, is now focusing on music of a different kind; music therapy. Lee launched India’s first Music Therapy Academy in Delhi to train Indian musicians to bring children as well as grown-ups affected by trauma, illness or cognitive challenges into the national mainstream.

“Music is widely undervalued as a powerful tool to help people overcome trauma, deal with disabilities, express themselves and respond to treatment when suffering from physical and psychological ailments,” Lee said. “It is my hope to see many more of these academies established across India to train musicians to use their talent to transform lives of those less privileged.”

Lee said that music has helped him cope with several personal crises which included a divorce in 2008. “I turned to music during professional problems, during the personal crisis that I endured a few years ago. Music provided relief after a bad day in cricket and everything else. Music therapy has been brilliant for me," he said.

ordinary performance, just 1 wicket with 6.75 run economy and not a single run scored of his bat!

This is poor from a test player! Oh wait, its T20, or test? If its not test why was kallis and yusuf playing for draw?

From ESPNCricinfo game preview

Players to watch
In a forgettable game with the ball for Knight Riders against Mumbai Indians, Shakib Al Hasan was the lone wicket-taker and finished with the best economy rate - 6.75 - off his four overs. Shakib returned after nearly a month on the bench and enhanced his reputation by bowling 12 dot balls.

shakib took 19 wickets and narine took 21

shakib's SR is 14 and Narine's is 13.4

shakibs eco is 6.53 and narine's is 5.25

Narine played all his 12 matches in the trot and had his captain's backing, Shakib had to wait for his chances and played those 12 matches across 2 seasons

Shakib faced the wrath of Chris Gayle once when gayle scored one of his 3 ipl hundreds, Narine still hasn't bowled to gayle

Yeah I was looking at Shakib's stat yesterday and it is indeed impressive.. If you only look at this year's stat it has been outstanding with good economy and average !!! He should've been selected for his bowling alone.. would've done wayyy better than Lee !!!

About batting- yes I am extremely disappointed .. He is a brand name in the world cricket and he should maintain that minimum standard for himself wherever he plays.. Yes, Cullum, Kallis, YP didn't do anything better either despite having their captain's backing.. Still people expect much more from him than others as he is holding the title of the "best all rounder"!!! Very disappointing performance..

Narine is a special talent !! He is new and the batsmen hasn't figured him out yet .. Soo he has that added advantage.. Shakib being an orthodox bowler and being in the industry long enough for batsmen to get used to his bowling doesn't have that luxury of Narine.. He have to really work hard for his wicket and he is doing that..His level of consistency, great eco rate and average tells you what an awesome bowler he is... Mashallah !!

Ditto, these two are totally of two different kinds, so no use comparing them. Compare Shak with any other orthodox spinner in IPL and I'm sure he's got far better stats.

Shakib has played 63 ODIs at home taking 91 wickets at 1.44 wickets/game
63 ODIs away taking 69 wickets at 1.10 wickets per game.

Exactly the same happens with Subcon and non-subcon separation:
SC: 1.36 wickets/game and Non-SC: 1.12 wickets /game

That should be true for all spinners. Is it not?

it's very unfair to Sak or to put Narayon in the same lg as Ajmol ,Swann.
Narayon needs to play atleast ten-fifteen tests and twenty odis to prove wether he is better than Sak or not.
IPeeL is nothing compared to tests and odis.
IPeeL stars like Robindro jadeja,Murli Vijay and even Rohit Sharma struggled in international level.
besides some one here mentioned that Sak playing same number of matches took twenty wckts and Narayon got 21.
So Sak far behind than Narayon is something I can not agree at all.

It's funny people are simply throwing up a few stats and then saying-look compare Narine to Shak, compare Swanny to narine etc etc

SHak "doing well within his limitation"? What does that imply

Let's have a look at when Shak comes on to bowl-when BD plays, our useless fast bowlers for the most part do nothing, shak comes on with 2 set batsmen with loads of wickets in hand and he is the one who has to carry the load-trust me as a spinner it's alot easier coming in with new batsmen at the crease.

2ndly-how many tests have bangladesh pushed to the 5th day with a target to defend? How many times has shakib been able to bowl on a 4th innings wearing pitch?

How many times even in an ODI has shakib had a decent total to defend after his fast bowlers have made early incisions

SHakib often has to come in as the strike bowler. Add to that we do not have a specialist first slip fielder(the closest we had was Junaid)-take into account the catches dropped, then you start getting a clearer picture

Mushy isn't exactly a world class gloveman either

Being "objective" isn't achieved by going against your countryman but rather taking all the factors into account

With all due respect I strongly disagree with that comment

You're comparing IPL-especially where shakib as a spinner bowled with the new ball on at least four occasions before the pitch had even broken up-and he has still matched Narine-across two seasons and with a broken run

I'd go as far as to say shak is as good as ajmal or swanny-ajmal has the variaitons and out of the three ajmal would be slightly better than the other 2 but to say they are far ahead of shak misses the mark I think

Narine may not fade like this guys but still he has to prove in tests. saying he belongs in the league of Ajmal and Swann based on IPL is a slap in the face of this two spinners

Shakib is as good as Swann but not as good as Ajmal. Ajmal is a different bowler. His variations are fantastic and can fool a batsmen anytime and anywhere.

Shakib isnt a naturally deceiving bowler like Ajmal or Narine. The arm ball is the ball thats deceiving for batsmen. His round arm action means that his balls are more loopy. Shakib is more economical and is harder to score off then Ajmal but Ajmal can get wickets by pitching the ball anywhere he wants to and is also economical. Shakib sticks to line and length. History shows that with a straight arm action e.g. Narine and Ajmal you will likely be more deceiving and be more of a wicket taker. Shakib is more of an economical bowler then he is at taking wickets. Most of his wickets come from turning the ball, the arm ball, line and length, pressurizing the the batsmen and making the batsmen play false shots due to pressure.

Shakib is a different kind of bowler to Swann and Ajmal. So i wouldnt really compare them together.

And btw Mar Umpire the first bowler who comes onto bowl when the pace bowlers arent doing the job for Bangladesh is Abdur Razzak. Then Shakib.

Im really surprised.. We always talked about how underrated shakib is actually and here our own fans are rating highly a new bowler (who yet to play 20+ odi and a single test) only based on some t20 performance ahead of shakib??
With all respect, I think before blaming+bashing people like jadeja we should look to ourself first..
And for comparing with ajmal and swann, In odi i'll pick shakib ahead of ajmal and swann... But for test ajmal,swann will get the node first.. These three are in the same league.. They are performing constantly for the last two years.. You wont find too much difference between them..and Its foolish to compare with their bowling action and variation as every person is unique..

I was referring to the IPL new ball bowling in this post Bengali Pagol-but yeah Razzak does the new ball honours for BD

Also I was arguing along a different line to what has been said before-regarding the situation shakib comes in, the state of the pitch when he usually bowls, and the lack of support from our other bowlers
Bowling also occurs in partnerships and the pressure created by one bowler can help another in getting wickets etc-shak doesn't get that

And I think ahnaf has summed it up for me

Shakib turns the ball quite a lot-don't listen to the commies, most of them are clowns and are sponsored by DLF (which is a cement company-completely appropriate for Brick-heads)
