It will be hard for him to get a consistent amount of games. He certainly will play about 3-4 games. The other international players in Pune Warriors are Michael Clarke, Callum Ferguson, Nathan McCullum, Angelo Matthews, Wayne Parnell, Jesse Ryder, Marlon Samuels, Graeme Smith and Steve Smith. From these crop of internatioal players the ones that would must likely be regular players are Graeme Smith, Marlon Samuels, Nathan McCullum/Angelo Matthews/Jesse Ryder.

The problem is that the top order lineup of Pune is already good. The top order for Pune would be Ganguly, Graeme Smith, Uthappa or maybe even Jesse Ryder and Michael Clarke (when he has finished the tour of West Indies). It wont be easy for Tamim to get a large amount of games in but i wish him all the best.

I just hope he gets a chance early on and capitalize on that.
It would be interested to see how he responds to a given situation.
He never had to fight for his spot in the Bangladesh team and has been an automatic choice.
Now that he is up against the best in the business from around the world, it would be a test of character for our flamboyant opener.

Show what you really made of.

A lucky break for Tamim indeed. I have a feeling Tamim might end up playing more than Shakib this season. KKR squad just looks too strong.

So one more overseas slot opens up for PWI. Hope they sign Mushy.

Tamim needs to place a beer bottle laced with laxatives or anything actually near ryder, even the placebo effect will be enough to get rid of him
Take out Wade during fielding practice
Kick Clarke in the lower back-set for the season
SMith is already gone-wouldn't fancy going head to head with him
Reopen Callum ferguson's previous knee and nose injuries
Give Samuels details of the local bookie, his record isn't Mr Sheen clean
Injure Mathews' groin ( a few quick singles in practice should do it)

Then Pune have no choice but to play tamim. I think most english players are over-rated none of them have done that much in the IPL

At least I have two teams to follw might even folow Pune because I hate SRK quite a bit

Pune Warriors coach Jeoff Marsh satisfied with Tamim Iqbal performence.
Punewarriors organised a practice match among their players yesterday night. In which Tamim scored 57 runs in 37 balls. Later on coach took him off to give other batsmans batting practice. Coach Jeoff Marsh seemed to be very satisfied with his batting and their is all possibilities for Tamim to play more no. of matches as Pune opener Graem smith is also out of the tournament after a injury.

Tamim's been always rated highly by the Indians. And Shakib's been hugely underrated by them (except for Shakrulz).

Lot to do with his swagger, his attitude, his aggressive batting. IDK why they don't rate Shakib or why they are so blind. Shakib is just as much aggressive, but it's a different sort of aggression. And Shakib is much better cricketer than Tamim.

If you had the chance to mess around with, joke around with, who would you choose between the two? Exactly. Tamim'd probably slap the crap out of you.

Shakib needs to get some swag-G on.

That's true I've noticed that too. But I have to disagree with your reasoning, I think it's simply because Tamim has more noteworthy innings v India than Shakib. Right from the agressive 50 in the WC to the 151 at the SBNS, Tamim has more or less always performed against them and that's why he has their attention. Same reason with England, you'll always hear their commentators talk about Tamim before Shakib.

Navo
April 5, 2012, 02:30 PM
I agree Dilscoop, India and England (commentators in particular) have always rated Tamim very highly. But the Indians can't forget TI's pasting of Zaheer Khan in 2007 or his 150+ against them in Tests and the English can't forget his back-to-back hundreds in Lords and Old Trafford.

Shakib's success seems like a misnomer to them because, to them, he is still just a 'utility player'.

it's their(Indian fans) lack of knowledge or poor memory if they think Sakib is just a utility player
he was the MoM few days ago beating India,and before that match he got three fifties vs Ind i guess.

Shakib is our best player and biggest match-winner but Tamim is the best batsman we've ever produced. He is the only batsman in the team who can score runs in different conditions around the world.

Players to watch
As Warriors ponder their overseas combination, they will find it hard to overlook Tamim Iqbal. The stylish Bangladesh opening batsman had a dream Asia Cup. He was controversially omitted at the start of the tournament but snubbed his detractors with four fifties, including 60 in the final. The pleasure of his off-side strokes, the poise and follow-through would make his captain proud.

The sad thing is at the end of the day we actually support all the IPL teams, even though we say we don't. When Shakib or Tamim will play we will support Pune and Kolkata, but when they don't play we still watch the game and support the other team so that the team that didn't pick our player lose. So at the end of the day at IPL wins.

playmaker
April 5, 2012, 08:58 PM
The reason why we are so eager to follow the performance of these 2 is because they are the only ones from our country to look forward to. We dont give a damn really about IPL or any of the team, all we want is to see our boys in action. We can see some ordinary spinners playing when guys like nasir, sunny, lalla arent played.

We see shakib being benched even despite his SUPERLATIVE performance in Asia Cup and BPL. One doesnt get such TAGS just by one or two performances. They perform in pretty much all the matches. He is 1 of the best players at world cricket at present and you drop him to play whom? Lungi? Lee? He has become ordinary nowadays. Kallis? Ar boltum na. McCullum? What has he done recently

I told you guys that Dinda is the best pacer at the moment in India as per Ganguly (http://www.espncricinfo.com/india/content/story/555902.html). He has a phenomenal domestic record, I think like 59 wickets in 9 matches this season, of which 22 came in the Dulip Trophy in 3 matches. :)

Tamim & Shakib should just come back home & rest. Get themselves ready for the Friends Life T20. Atleast they aren't underestimated over there. Shakib is likely to play for Northamptonshire. Tamim hasn't been picked by any team yet.

I don't think either Tamim or Shakib would mind not playing as long as they are getting paid. IPL is all about money, if you can make money without any pain, then what more would you want :)...

I say keep them resting for the matches matters the most to them and the fans and keep those pay cheques coming :)

If Tamim doesn't play today, his chance of playing will go down even more as A. Matthew is available from next PW game.

Yup you are right nadim. Any team will take Mathews in a heartbeat. Tamims inclusion depends on how badly ryder fails at the top of the order

Anjelo can only bat. Due to his injury he can't bowl for 6 months or so. I think I read it recently.

8 runs off 8 balls for Tamim's replacement. IN any case, Better that he is at the nets regularly rather then being home doing nothing at all. On top of that, the $$ for sitting around is good. As for myself, I get to use my Sunday morning not watching crap cricket.

i read somewhere that matthews is carrying an injury and cant bowl..so he will play only as a batsman..so if matthews can't bowl do him or tamim gives more value for money?

if you not be biased even a srilankan would support tamim is a better batsman then matthews

সাকিব-তামিমের মন ভালো নেই

ঢাকা: পুনে ওয়ারিয়র্স থেকে ফোন পাওয়ার পর সে কি খুশি তামিম ইকবালের। যে দিন চুক্তি হয় সেদিন আবেগ আপ্লুত হয়ে পড়েছিলেন। আইপিএলে খেলার সুযোগ পাওয়া তার কাছে অনেক বড় একটা অর্জন মনে হয়েছিলো। তখন একবারের জন্যও মনে আসেনি পুনে ওয়ারিয়র্সে তার দিনগুলো দুর্বিসহ হয়ে উঠতে পারে।

প্রথম কয়েকটা দিন অবশ্য ভালো গেছে, দল বেঁধে অনুশীলনে যাওয়া, মুম্বাই সমূদ্র সৈকত দর্শন, ফুটপাতের পাওভাঁজি, ফুসকা-চটপটি আর গোলা আইসক্রিমসহ সুস্বাদু সব খাবার খেয়ে আনন্দেই ছিলেন। প্র্যাকটিস ম্যাচে ৩৭ বলে ৫৭ রান করা। কোচের কাছ থেকে ধন্যবাদ পাওয়ার মুহূর্তগুলো মনে ধরেছিলো। খেলা শুরুর আগের কয়েকটা দিন বাদ দিলে তামিমের কাছে এখন প্রতিটি মুহূর্তই পীড়াদায়কই হওয়ার কথা।

পুনে ওয়ারিয়র্স দুটো ম্যাচ খেলে দুটোতেই জিতেছে। ওই জয়ের অংশিদার হওয়ার সৌভাগ্য তামিমের হয়নি। খেলা দূরে থাক দলের সাথেও নেওয়া হয় না। হোটেলে বসে টিভিতে খেলা দেখেন। সোমবার মোবাইলফোনে কুশল জানতে চাওয়া হলে আবেগাপ্লুত হয়ে পড়েন,‘ভালো থাকি কি করে। আমি এখনো তো দলের অংশই হতে পারিনি। দলের সাথে স্টেডিয়ামেও যাচ্ছি না। হোটেলে থাকি। খেলা থাকে প্র্যাকটিসের সুযোগ কম। বসে থাকতে ভালো লাগছে না।’

অথচ যাওয়ার আগের রাতে বাংলানিউজকে এক সাক্ষাৎকারে তামিম বলেছিলেন,‘আমার বিশ্বাস খেলতে পারবো। তারা যখন আমাকে দলে নিয়েছে তখন নিশ্চয়ই খেলাবে। সব কিছু বিচার বিশ্লেষণ করেই নিয়েছে।’

ওসব এখন স্মৃতি। সব কিছু তো মানুষের মনোপুত: হয় না। তাই বলে এশিয়া কাপের অন্যতম সেরা ব্যাটসম্যানকে এভাবে দিনাতিপাত করতে হবে? আইপিএলে প্রতীক্ষার অবসান হলেও উপেক্ষার অবসান কবে হবে তামিমের নিজেও জানেন না,‘জানি না কি হবে। থাকি দেখাযাক কি হয়। এখনো তো অনেক ম্যাচ বাকি।’

তামিমের চেয়ে একটু ভালো অবস্থায় আছেন সাকিব আল হাসান। ক্রিকেট দুনিয়ার শীর্ষ অলরাউন্ডারকে একাদশে না রাখলেও ডাগআউটে রাখে। অন্তত দলের সাথে মাঠে বসে খেলা দেখার সুযোগ হয়। যদিও কলকাতা নাইট রাইডার্স দুই ম্যাচ খেলে এখনো কোন জয় পায়নি। সাকিবকে না খেলানোর সিদ্ধান্ত যে ভুল ভারতীয় ধারাভাষ্যকার রবী শাস্ত্রীর কথাতে পরিষ্কার। রোববার ভারতের একটি টিভি চ্যানেলে কলকতার কোচ এবং টিম ম্যানেজমেন্টকে ধুয়ে দিয়েছেন তিনি। কলকাতাতেও সাকিবের সমর্থন বাড়ছে। কেন বিশ্বের একনম্বর অলরাউন্ডারকে খেলাচ্ছে না, তা নিয়ে সাধারণ দর্শকদের মনেও প্রশ্ন। খোদ দলের ভেতরে সাকিবকে না খেলানোর বিষয়ে দ্বিধাবিভক্ত হয়ে গেছেন খেলোয়াড়রা।

আগেরবার যে কয়টি ম্যাচ খেলার সুযোগ পেয়েছিলেন তাতে সাকিবের বোলিং পারপফরমেন্স দারুণ। এবার তো আরও ফর্মে, এশিয়া কাপের সেরা খেলোয়াড়। কলকাতা যাওয়ার আগে যতবারই তাকে জিঞ্জেস করা হয়েছে আপনার লক্ষ্য কি? উত্তরে বলেছেন,‘অবশ্যই সবগুলো ম্যাচ খেলা এবং ভালো পারফরমেন্স করা। দুটো ম্যাচের অতিরিক্ত তালিকায় থাকার পর সে স্বপ্ন উবে গেছে। এখন খেলার সুযোগ পেলেই হয়। মোবাইলফোনে বলছিলেন,‘আমি খেলার জন্য প্রস্তুত আছি। যখনই সুযোগ পাবো চেষ্টা করবো সেরাটা খেলার। মাত্র তো দুটো ম্যাচ গেছে। ভালো ফর্মে আছি। প্রথম থেকেই খেলার জন্য মুখিয়ে ছিলাম। যাইহোক সুযোগের অপেক্ষায় আছি। দেখাযাক কি হয়।’

I just don't understand why they don't take Tamim to the ground. That's not the way to treat your players. Being Bangladeshi is just not enough evidence for me. We have seen Mash, Ash, Raj in IPL before but none were left out by their teams like Pune is doing with Tamim...

I just hope that this kind of treatment from Pune won't damage Tamim's confidence..

Before we make a huge deal out of this, my understanding is that every franchise brings a certain number of players (let's say the top 15) to the ground on a given match day. I know this is true of away games (i.e. the rest are left at home and don't even get on the plane), not entirely sure how it works for home games. The point is, if it weren't Tamim, it would have been someone else staying back at the hotel; and I'm sure he's not the only player from the Pune squad having to stay back. All that we can conclude from this is that the management hasn't considered him as someone good enough to be in the top X (let's say 15) yet.

Tamim should not be complaining. He is competing against some very good T20 players with an abysmal T20 record. On top of that Pune are winning so why would they want to change their line-up? I think it's good for Tamim to experience, probably for the first time, what it feels like to not be guaranteed a place in the playing XI. He is quite a reactionary player and loves to prove his critics wrong so hopefully this spurs him on to perform even better on the world stage. Shakib on the other hand should have been playing from the start. He too needs to perform and earn a bigger role for himself in the team. Didn't like his anxiety in the last match. He should know who he is and what he is capable of.

পুনে ওয়ারিয়র্সের টেন্টে আছেন ৩০ জন ক্রিকেটার। দলের সঙ্গে মুভ করতে পারেন মাত্র ১৭ জন। বাকিদের হোটেলেই রেখে যাওয়া হয়। প্রথম ম্যাচের সময় দলের সঙ্গে মুম্বাই নিয়ে যাওয়া হলেও এরপর থেকেই হোটেলে রাখা হচ্ছে তামিমকে। তবে টেন্টে থেকেও তামিম নিজের পেশাদারিত্বের পরিচয় রেখে যাচ্ছেন। কোনো অভিযোগ নেই তার না খেলার জন্য। কলকাতার একটি দৈনিকের খবর, পুনে ওয়ারিয়র্স যেভাবে একের পর এক ম্যাচ জিতে চলেছে, তাতে দ্বিতীয় রাউন্ডে ওঠার টার্গেট করেছেন সৌরভ গাঙ্গুলি। আর এ জন্য অন্তত আটটি ম্যাচ তাদের জিততে হবে। সেটি নিশ্চিত হয়ে গেলে দল নিয়ে কিছু পরীক্ষা চালাবে ওয়ারিয়র্স। সেখানে হয়তো ঘুরিয়ে- ফিরিয়ে অনেককে খেলানো হবে। তামিমকে খেলানো নিয়ে ভারতীয় মিডিয়ায় তেমন কথা না উঠলেও সাকিবকে নিয়ে ঝড় উঠে গিয়েছিল। শেষ ম্যাচটিতে সাকিবকে নামানোয় কলকাতার দৈনিকগুলোতে নাইট রাইডার্স টিম ম্যানেজমেন্টের প্রশংসা করা হয়েছে।

Dilshan is sitting on bench, JP Duminny is sitting on bench, Tait is sitting on bench, Dirk nannes sitting on bench. These are really good IPL players. So we can just complain about Tamim here. tamim might be in a good form but T20 is a defferent kind of games. And he will get his chance. People should calm down.

Actually I am getting little aggravated to see all these "they hate Bangladeshi or Bangladeshi Tag has a curse" type comments. Guys its IPL. Its their league..The team management has all the rights to pick the best possible combination. They might not be right all the time but its THEIR team. They can pick any jodu modu kodu they like to pick. Why do we have to be so enraged about it?

We have seen players like Symond, Mcgrath and many other famous international players not making it to the playing XI. And For the record, Tamim is not all that in T20.

I would love to see Tamim play well in IPL and prove his critics wrong. But thats something we have no control over. So let us all stay calm and enjoy this IPL circus..

Yeah it's their team and they have all the right to decide their team combination but Tamim is our boy and we have every right to criticize their decision when we know Tamim wouldn't have done worse than what the other star members of his team is doing..

Honestly I don't care much about this IPL and I don't even want our players to go to IPL..but it makes me sad when I see our best players are looking out of sort and losing their confidence.. Yes Symond, Mcgrath and many others have been benched but I can't think of a good reason why KKR would bench a in form Shakib for 2 straight game and pick players like Narine and Lagne.. Of course they can choose their team combination but that has to be rational.. It's not like they have planned a conspiracy against us it's just they don't rate our players highly.. They consider any other player more reliable than our players and that hurts :(

He outperformed and outshined everyoned (just like our Shak is doing). Disco dancer became hit and his dance moves a pop sensation and he became number 1 :clap: (just like Shak is no.1 all rounder now). He was on his way to greatness but then producers and directors ignored him. They focused on other Khans while our Mithun da faded and now he is an Indian reality star (Grand Master in some dance shows :eek:). Yes it is the Bdeshi tag

Welcome to the real world :)

It hurts me too. But lets take a look at our BPL. We have had some good players from associate countries in our BPL. Did they get enough matches in BPL? Ever Wondered why? Let me ask you this...Who would you pick if you were given an option to pick just 1 player from lets say WI and Canada? You would blindly go for WI player isnt it? Its the magic of the name "WI". Eventhough the guy from Canada could be more talented, could be the next big thing, but we would still go after the Name WI. Thats how the world works. Cruel isnt it? :)

Bangladesh is still not there yet. We still dont have that magic wand called "Big Team". We'll have it when we start winning Test matches overseas. But look at the bright side. That day is not that far away :)

just because Tam & Sakib are ignored and benched doesnt mean it will do harm to their confidence.
TI was benched during bpl,so what,he came back with four 50s, after Zim tour Sak lost captaincy..so what..he is a lot better now.
What hurts a players confidence is their own failure or poor performance.
I am rather concerned abt the fact that instead of warming benches if atleast TI could come back and play dpl that would hv helped him a lot more.
and so much for sharing dressing room with big players, my foot :-P

Good point. If benching Tamim is a sin as people are claiming here, then one might as well shoot himself in the head for benching any of the players that you named. Just to serve as a reminder of exactly how good some of these players are, let's revisit Brad Hodge's Cricinfo profile:


Brad Hodge will go down as one of the unluckiest nearly-men in Australian cricket. When he was dropped with an average of 58.42 only five matches into his Test career in 2005-06, he vowed to win back his place. He added only one Test, as a fill-in during a tour of the West Indies two years later, before his tally was permanently stalled at six matches in the baggy green. It was not an adequate reward for one of the most prolific run scorers in the modern era of Australia's domestic game.

By the time the 2009-10 season arrived, Hodge's heart was no longer in first-class cricket. He began the summer with 195 against South Australia but had an epiphany when he had reached his century, stumps was near and he launched the new ball over the bowler's head for six. Hodge said it signified he no longer had the drive to play the longer format and he soon retired, although he announced he would stay on in Victoria's limited-overs teams for another two seasons. And why not? He comfortably topped the FR Cup tally in 2009-10 with 622 runs at 69.11, including four centuries, and remained one of the world's best Twenty20 batsmen.


In 2006-07 he had forced his way into the ODI side when Ricky Ponting rested, and a 97 and 99 not out won him a place in the World Cup squad. In the Caribbean, he finally reached three figures with 123 off 89 balls against the Netherlands, but it was his last bat in the tournament and he watched the final from the dressing room. It had become an all-too familiar viewing platform. Hodge was Australia's unluckiest casualty of the 2005-06 season of batting change. Picked for his first Test in November after being the reserve on tours to India, New Zealand and England, he opened with a fluent 60 and by the end of the home summer had 409 runs at an envious average.

Yup, he's that good. Tamim Iqbal doesn't come anywhere close.

April 12, 2012, 11:42 AM
Back on topic - Tamim is yet to prove his worth in T20 arena. yes its true he hit 4 50s in ODIs. But T20 is still very diff and his SR wasn't that high in that Asia cup also. So I don't think Pune management is doing any injustice. Ryder can bowl too and is known for his big hittings. So until he fails for few more games, TI won't get a chance. Shak case is different.

Yeah that's why in my previous post I said the boys should get all chrged up and fight their heart out to gain a respectable position in the cricket world.. They can do it as we saw whenever Indian media or players look down at us our boys just go with a spirit to thrash India.. This same spirit should be there while playing against any other country.. It should always be a do or die situation for them.. They have the talent and they just have to prove it to the world then we will see how all these league will go crazy to have our boys.. I hope I will be able to witness that day in my lifetime (ameen)

I hope so too .. It's just feels bad to see the sad faces of our boys.. But that's natural for us fans I guess..

Yeah I also think both Shak and Tamim should come back and join the DPL..True, they are not getting enough chance to share their views with legends.. Rather Iqbal Abdullah is getting lots of tips from Shak..But for Shak what I think it's a challenge.. I think he can only grow stronger from such situation as he is soo egoistic.. Definitely he is not liking to get ignored so he might be more determined to do even better which is good for us.. Let's see.. But last match clearly showed Shak lost his confidence .. I've neven seen him putting on such a poor show in every department.. Thank God he got the 2 wickets..

and what is his game?

He is profolic in T20! given a good run in, he can show his class!

If a player plays 2 games and fails, does'nt mean much! give him 5 or 6 games in a row, you will be sure to see some huge scores.

and in terms of shakib, he has been floping with T20 battling for a long time.

I remember last year when he played for KKR. everyone was shouting he should move up the order!

So he did, when he played for worcester... complete failure! He is T20 bowler... but needs to improve batting.

This is Nitin from Pune, and got some of my buddies in the management at Pune Warriors.
I see lot of bangladeshi fans on Pune Warriors official Facebook page, abusing and cursing Saurabh & the team management for not putting in Tamim in the batting order.
First of all let me tell you guys the complete idea of purchasing Tamim.

History
It all started in ipl 2011 pune warriors ended up 9th (2nd last) though being the costliest team in entire cricket world, with lots of money poured in.
All top class players, but no one was up in their form except for Yuvraj Singh & Robin Utthapa .At tht time the team had run out of option on who to try, Jesse Ryder was struggling with his form due to depression and his personal issues , and so were Grane Smith and other big shots.At that time management though of including extra spare players who are in form , so thats when time comes they can be bought into attack.

Why not replace Jessy Ryder with Tamim as since last 3 games he hasn't been up to mark?
This year Jess is in India with his Psychologist, he is always with him, home or away does not matter. At this point what Jess needs is a fair chance to prove that he is worth, and he still got it, critics back in NZ are driving him nutts.last 3 matches he has been run out, and 2 of the times not his fault.Finally today Jess scored an awesome 70+ score winning the Man of the match award.And thats what the Team and his Psychologist wanted.

When would Tamim get a chance?
To be honest its a 50-50 situation. however there are talks going on that in next match either vs Delhi Daredevils or Royal challengers Bangalore Samules might be replaced by Tamim .lets hope for the best

Please guys, do understand that we are not against any Bangladeshi or its that we love to snub Bangladeshi cricketers. The team has invested $50,000 in Tamim for some reason, all you need to do is be patient and wait n watch.
Please do not spam with hate,curse and offending messages on official FB page of PWI, we never see people from Australia, NZ, England & South Africa, cursing for not including their players in the batting/bowling order.

Well, no one is preaching any administration policy here.I just wanted to put a stop to what was happening over there, and I also wanted to answer all the question that were popped up by the Bangladeshi fans, And I thought BC would be a great platform to do that.
Secondly we respect Bangladeshis, and you guys are like a brother nation to us.A true friend is one who comes closer to your Ear and whispers in it, that "Dude!, your zipper is open, pull it up before any one sees it". On the other hand your enemies will say it loud and open "Hey guys look his zipper is open like a post office, LOL!!!
So the point is , I would have any time decided to post this on an international forum, but then guys, would that be friendly or would it help my friend save his reputation?

"If you folks do have an issue why not strengthen the privacy settings there? "
India being a Democratic secular country, freedom of speech is always promoted and encouraged. We are always open to suggestion and would like to know what fans around the world have to say.
In fact we have media campaigns to encourage people to drop in their words which will help the strategy. Like the one bellow ....

This is Nitin from Pune, and got some of my buddies in the management at Pune Warriors.
I see lot of bangladeshi fans on Pune Warriors official Facebook page, abusing and cursing Saurabh & the team management for not putting in Tamim in the batting order.
First of all let me tell you guys the complete idea of purchasing Tamim.

History
It all started in ipl 2011 pune warriors ended up 9th (2nd last) though being the costliest team in entire cricket world, with lots of money poured in.
All top class players, but no one was up in their form except for Yuvraj Singh & Robin Utthapa .At tht time the team had run out of option on who to try, Jesse Ryder was struggling with his form due to depression and his personal issues , and so were Grane Smith and other big shots.At that time management though of including extra spare players who are in form , so thats when time comes they can be bought into attack.

Why not replace Jessy Ryder with Tamim as since last 3 games he hasn't been up to mark?
This year Jess is in India with his Psychologist, he is always with him, home or away does not matter. At this point what Jess needs is a fair chance to prove that he is worth, and he still got it, critics back in NZ are driving him nutts.last 3 matches he has been run out, and 2 of the times not his fault.Finally today Jess scored an awesome 70+ score winning the Man of the match award.And thats what the Team and his Psychologist wanted.

When would Tamim get a chance?
To be honest its a 50-50 situation. however there are talks going on that in next match either vs Delhi Daredevils or Royal challengers Bangalore Samules might be replaced by Tamim .lets hope for the best

Please guys, do understand that we are not against any Bangladeshi or its that we love to snub Bangladeshi cricketers. The team has invested $50,000 in Tamim for some reason, all you need to do is be patient and wait n watch.
Please do not spam with hate,curse and offending messages on official FB page of PWI, we never see people from Australia, NZ, England & South Africa, cursing for not including their players in the batting/bowling order.
Thank you

If this is what the psychologist wanted it could be quite dangerous-all Mr Kegs on Legs Ryder needs now is a celebratory party and a box of "ROyal Challenge" to get himself back on the booze.

He's been copping it in NZ and rightly so. He's an extremely talented batsman but goes on like a spoilt brat


BTW I wasn't one of those people trashing Pune's website, I doubt the BC guys are actually doing it, I mean out of potentially 160+ million fans including expats most probably aren't from BC-

but I am an ANti-Pune supporter, i am going to start abusing Gangla-bhai, because sure he was purchased for 50k but the way he is kept in a hotel room reeks of the treatment of some of our other players who had anything to do with this league.

Knowing how the BCCI and IPL operates, wouldn't be surprised if this was a legit attempt to try and stuff up our form batsman as they've isolated pakistani players. I no longer view India as a brother nation, in 1971 it was within her interests and now regarding any comment from indian fans, they are potentially the most arrogant. If you hold the view you mentioned then welcome, that view will be returned to you only

Tamim hasn't been treated like an international player-if you are going to use him as the cleaner then why pay him 50k. Release him so he can go back and play cricket somewhere else.

So if you could pass on the message to the PW "attempting to think"-tank that would be highly appreciated

PS It's not Grane aka "Grain" Smith, he is not cereal material. Look puns aside I don't think your page should be trashed but I think the "Can't think"-tank and the captain deserves a bit for tamim's treatment not his non-selection

EDIT: riddled with errors and it has been perceived that this post appears "feisty"-hope it isn't vitriolic. This is nothing personal Nitin, you are a very polite guy, it is the IPL and BCCI I have particular issues with. Please don't take anything personally. Just having a rant

''And I don't think using BC as a platform to preach about your administration policy of a facebook fan group has ANYTHING to do with fans here."
Well, no one is preaching any administration policy here.I just wanted to put a stop to what was happening over there, and I also wanted to answer all the question that were popped up by the Bangladeshi fans, And I thought BC would be a great platform to do that.
Secondly we respect Bangladeshis, and you guys are like a brother nation to us.A true friend is one who comes closer to your Ear and whispers in it, that "Dude!, your zipper is open, pull it up before any one sees it". On the other hand your enemies will say it loud and open "Hey guys look his zipper is open like a post office, LOL!!!
So the point is , I would have any time decided to post this on an international forum, but then guys, would that be friendly or would it help my friend save his reputation?

"If you folks do have an issue why not strengthen the privacy settings there? "
India being a Democratic secular country, freedom of speech is always promoted and encouraged. We are always open to suggestion and would like to know what fans around the world have to say.
In fact we have media campaigns to encourage people to drop in their words which will help the strategy. Like the one bellow ....

Looking at Ganguly's picture above it would seem he does need a lot of "Grain" or perhaps he's suffering from a serious case of haemorrhoids

Look Nitin welcome to BC, you'll realise we abuse our players as much as anyone else and we are a race that quickly forgets things-ganguly might be praised later-who knows

no need to get all feisty.

Its a serious situation if a player is suffering depression. Good on Ryder to get through a difficult path that he has encountered.

$50k isnt a great deal of money if you compare to great players *cough cough* Jadeja *cough* who are getting paid $2mil.

It is very sad if one needs to resort to a player's mental situation. The guy is taking care of it -and he should be encouraged. It is not a stigma! We live in the 21st century - not in the dark ages.

Well done Ryder. Way to get over an obstacle. True players are known for the way they recover from hard times, not when the going is smooth.

mar umpire

Players and sportspeople are always using the "mental illness" excuse to get out of jail which really detracts from those who truly suffer. It is the 21st century, however from amedical point of view these things are often over-diagnosed and people are given a "diagnosis" which they use as an excuse to justify their actions.

It's a lot like saying "mental illness runs in the family, so I have it"-although the chances may be increased it is ultimately affected by actions taken by the individual-Ryder was/is an addict-

But of course being the 21st century we celebrate and praise these idiots "for getting through the tough times". The guys going through the "tough times" are those in war torn countries and the poverty ridden states of the world, whether its BD, Horn of Africa or the countries currently affected (no need to mention names). I am sure these people suffer as much PTSD and anxiety and "depression" as much as any of these idiots and they don't need to go out and make a fool of themselves. Howevr in the western world and the western media it is very much in Vogue to 'cry with those going through the tough times". I am sure the celebrities of the world today deserve so much sympathy because I don't know erhaps they had to sell their 21st home and are now left with 20, hence they are depressed etc etc.

These guys need to man up and take responsibility and stop looking for excuses and sympathy. Ryder can get all the psychotherapy he wants but it'll do him no good unless he takes action himself. We have control over our actions for the most part and any loss of action w ehave had we only have to hold ourselves responsible.

Guys like the Ryders, Warnes and the Tiger Woods not to mention others have only themselves to blame and the consequences they are facing had a lot to do with how they chose to lead their lives

They don't deserve sympathy-help yes, but they have themselevs to blame

Regarding those in the community who truly suffer at no fault of their own, that's different

Perhaps he is taking care of it-but knowing his repeat offences its probably just another cover up and cop-out. He'll take a few classes and be back to his old ways-asa NZ supporter we all were massive fans of Ryder but the stuff he's carried on with..........

Sorry if I sounded angry, I edited that post you quoted

Jadeja is playing. I think if Tamim isn't part of their plans he should be released simple as that not kept in a hotel-and if they need him again then call him back

I am getting this feeling that Tamim might come in place of Samuels in the next game. Samuels hasn't been in great form and while batting in the last match he said something to Ryder that pissed him off. Improbable but just my gut feeling.

The thing is, given the form Tamim has now, and also considering the fact Tamim knows the sub-continent conditions better than all of the other PWI overseas players (except maybe Mathews), he deserved chances ahead of the other overseas players. Any person not biased against him would agree with me. I do agree that some of the responses by Bangladeshis were childish but you can't blame them for being disheartened.

Welcome to BC, BTW.

For Tamim to play , Jesse ryder has to flop . Simple . There is no way Ganguly will come one down to accommodate Tamim in the opening slot . Ganguly is too egoistic for all that .

Rubbing what?? That too with guys...??? Where did you see???? :)

Disappointed with his inclusion in PW.... Would be better to not to take him. 40,000 $ is max that he can get... But the dent in his confidence is going to be enormous. He is being made to believe that he isn't anyone one to be counted in cricket... That's damaging... This amount of money isn't worth that... That's partly the reason pointing and a few others opted to be out of IPL...

Had it been a huge price tag like Mash had, it could be acceptable...because that price tag was a bit of protection against damage to confidence...

TI should leave the camp and not sleep in hotels for just 40,000$... Razzak and Ash ahsnt yet recovered from the damage...caused by that 40,000 ... In IPL

April 19, 2012, 09:02 PM
Ya to say that the IPL dented Ash's confidence is ridiculous. He was really lucky to even get a contract in the IPL. Razzak was also very lucky to get a contract in the IPL. Mash was also overpaid big time when he was known to being a poor death bowler, even though I believe he deserved a contract. I see Tamim doing better then the previous 3 in the IPL.

Shakib will get matches at Eden Garden and (other venues where track helps the spinners) if he doesn't bowl too bad.
Tough for Tamim... if only Jessey Ryder flops big time, then he might get chance...because thats the only possible replacement, since Callum Feguson is back-up of Steven Smith & Samuels is an all-rounder.

The Bowling Unit of Pune has been exceptional. They won't change it!

I honestly believe Pune has a good batting Line Up except Ganguly!

He is the captain so you can't really say much.

in regards to Tamim, Only Ryder or Marlon need to flop 2+ match in a row.

I could see Matthews being replaced though with Parnell. I don't really see the need for Matthews when they already have Smith who is finishing matches nicely for them. Samuels is a dual threat option but the guy really hasn't been very exceptional.
