So Rajasthan Royals have stripped Steven Smith of captaincy...
Shakib has a new home: Sunrisers of Hyderabad
Mustafizur is now an Indian
Chennai Super Kings are back

I’m glad Shakib wasn’t retained by KKR. And I hope no other ever BD player ever play for KKR nor get bought by KKR. They don’t deserve our big support from BD. Any other place don’t care. But not KKR franchise.

They forget. Having a BD player, your fanbase goes up by a more bigger numbers. Wherever BD player goes, BD fans follow. KKR probably bad more fans from BD on twitter, Fb, Etc that there own place. But who can forget What their fans did world t20 2016 Bd v Pak game at edens. Twisted bunch is the right word to describe.

Warner is very important for SRH. I very much doubt they will do anything unless cricket Australia does something very drastic. And no way in hell shakib will be made captain. he will hardly make playing 11.

Well, I guess he is still legit as far as SRH concerns.

But looks like both warner and Smith are facing one year bans...

I don't think SRH will hand captaincy to Shakib; but I do see him playing an integral part in their squad this season.

Shakib is the most experienced player in their squad.

Good choice. The best man for the job.

That means he's gonna play the majority of the games and thus only 3 other places will be open for the foreigners.

Rashid Khan is locked into one of those 3...

So where would Shakib fit in here?

Checking out his last 2/3years T20 stats. Is good. Only Bangladeshi to score t20 ton. Doesnt matter who against. Rest of them played with associates too but none scored any 80s or 90s let alone a ton.

bro I don't like Mullah and even I will admit he's a better T20 player than Tamim. A handful of knocks and 1 ton against Oman simply isn't good enough.

Mushy should be ahead of Tamim re: T20. And I'm not saying this just for the last tournament. This guy has all sort of shots, can be innovative (at times too innovative), can slog, can play both spin & pace and also can keep (yeah not the greatest keeper, but it's only T20) and you won't have to spend much.

Like KXIP could easily spend few lahks and get Mushy as they don't have a keeper. KL Rahul is going to keep for them.

Sure, No problem at all.

Each tournament can have different modification rules. For IPL, BigBash, BPL etc. Captain change will cost you 3 modifications. Of course captain brings you double the point (hopefully positive points).

In this site, one can only make change before the 1st game of the day starts. Once the 1st game starts, even if there is a second game for the day, one can't make any changes for that. So you should think of all games for the day and then make changes.

Those are too most important rules for this site. The rest are the same. If the game is abandoned, rain, weather etc. whoever scored how much will be added, I believe.

There are total of 47 days. 300 modification. 6.3 per day. Unless you want to change captains few times. This years schedule is really bad for fantasy games.

Both Max100 and I have won multiple tournaments there. So if you want strategies to play here we can help. But I think you are well aware of the uncertainities. Pitch bowling or batting friendly, weather, player availability, injuries etc. must be followed. Sometimes same field different pitch can give different totals. 200 pitch would require batsmen heavy, 140ish pitch would need bowler heavy.

Warner, Starc and Smith's absence totally screwed me. But will have to play the game as everyone else.

Tigers_eye
April 3, 2018, 02:00 PM
Another rule they have is player categories. They have their own system and classification. Batsmen, Bowler, WK. Then there is a Mix category where you can choose anyone. Players are also ranked A-G. A =15, G = 3. You can have a total of 150125 adding all players.

I think this is how the path to making CSK cup-winner will unfold -

They will rest Dhoni after first 1/2 matches in the name of injury or illness.
In those beginning matches he will perform well.
Then without him CSK will start losing and become struggling in the point table.
They will reintroduce Dhoni at that point and in a do or die match his match winning score will bring CSK in the fore.
Slowly in play offs CSK will stamp dramatic wins and everybody will start praising his captaincy where again his batting will be somewhat mediocre
Then in the final his magnificent batting will seal the opponent fate and all spectators will give standing ovation, he will win all the prize money for all categories, twitter will submerge with his praise, poets will start writing hymns about him, the man who burnt his effigy in 2007 will publicly ask for forgiveness etc.

T20 INTLs.
Tamim T20 65 innings AVG 24, SR 116, 1 C, 5 50s.

Hales (15 inn): Avg 24.64, SR 137.5, 0 C, 0 50s

Doesn't mean TI is a better T20 player, however, he has been playing better, better suited for success in Indian condition and less expensive.

But Mushy (perhaps in KXIP as a keeper+batsman) and Mullah surely deserve a spot. (I wish I could see Sabbir get a chance and break free to stun the world.)

Perhaps Sammy from WI.

Mustafiz should have able to defend it . He was given a playing 11 chance to my surprise . He doesn't know how to bat and these are the monentss that u seize .

He failed badly . Can't blame and say others got tonked too ..

Too predictable bowling . I really thought he would be able to defend it against the lower order ..

It wasn't lower order, it was number 4 batting

Defending 7 off last 6 is near impossible in T20 on a flat deck as anything can go for a boundary

He didn't bowl great but it wasn't poor either

He is a sports person. I don't think by participating in IPL he is over worked. But the experience he will gain actually playing not sitting in the side line will be beneficial for us.

I really thought he would be able to defend it after first 3 dot balls when the batsman was watching him. Old fizz would have gotten them through.

Maybe he should have gotten the 19th over - but captain obviously didn't have trust in him.

he lost psl super over.. he lost this... He is not doing well. You can not compare to others - you gotta seize your moment.

As a fan of Fizz, i am really disappointed. This was his to take.

I'd rather see him in and out of the team, I don't really care if he is dropped, but one bowler lost them the game and its the big lad from new Zealand, he was poor with ball and on the field.

Bumrah got hammered but mcgleneghan let bravo settle, Mustafizur only had 7 to defend on a flat deck, that's instantly 90/10 in batsman's favour, even after 3 dots it was 50/50

bro, I understand that we can get emotional very easily - but it pays to have some restraint over it and not go back and forth between euphoria and doom.

no bowler would be able to defend 7 runs in the last over of a 20/20 or win super-overs consistently. Defending 7 runs is just ludicrous. Wining the super over mostly comes down to how much own team's batsman scores against the opposing bowler. It's a batsman's game. Few bowlers are even given the opportunity bowl in these situations, and fewer still pull off wins.

Mustafiz is doing fine. He is 22 years old, and his growth is as expected. Barring injuries, he will turn out to be the best bowler we produced. Just don't expect him to be that already.

Disclaimer 1: And please, don't bring up Rashid Khan or any other names. We are not concerned with anomalies. May Rashid have a great career, but let's not be greedy. We don't have to have a Waqar. A Morne would be good enough.

Disclaimer 2: The comparison with Morne is purely on merits of bowling pedigree and not about bowling speed/style. Morne lost plenty of games for his country in the death overs. If we want a bowler who wins a majority of games that goes to last 2-5 overs, we should build a robot that bowls 120 mph away-swingers.

April 7, 2018, 06:18 PM
Fizz hasn't bowled well in T20s in a while. Having said that, he's always capable of bowling that one magical over that can change the game like he did in the Nidahas Final.

I think he's perfectly suited to bowl in ODIs where he gets the chance to get into a nice rhythm.

iDumb
April 7, 2018, 06:53 PM
bro, I understand that we can get emotional very easily - but it pays to have some restraint over it and not go back and forth between euphoria and doom.

.

Actually I am not being emotional. It is difficult to defend 7 but he should have done it given how high we hold him as a bowler.

It's also 95% of the time loss from csk when 3 overs left. But Bravo came through. That is the point.

T20/20 is a very one man can takeaway type of game.

He wasn't bowling to bravo.

He is only a bowler. He adds zero value as a batsman and poor as a fielder. For him to be part of such a highly competetive restrictive 4. He has to deliver. that's my point.

he went over >10 Econ. If he is not under 8. It's hard to justify his spot as a bowler in playing 11. It can only be justified when he can win games like today.

Obviously i am not talking about the rest of the bowlers as they are not my concern. Same applies to McClenghan. But it is a poor self reflection to point and say the game was lost due mcclenaghan or bhumrah. If they did well, mustas roll at the end would not have been highlighted like now.. and then u will realize he still bowled not upto his standard.

iDumb
April 7, 2018, 06:58 PM
I actually watch the whole first innings just waiting his bowling. Then after his first over turned it off realizing he is no where close to past ipl that made me watch a whole single season. Turned it off.. Later looked at scorecard when bravo was going.. turned back on .. and then was happy that Fizz would be put in a pressure situation again (but didn't think he would have 7 but maybe 12 or 13) and against bravo.

when the danger guy was out, it was relatively easier to defrend a low score. Also his over throaw cost Bravo back on strike remember that. every singe thing counts in t20.

But agree with al furqan, if he is persisted with he will occasionally give 1 good over in a pressure situation. Today he just failed. and I thought he would get the 19th over. he would have looked much much worse.

R0ssei
April 7, 2018, 08:23 PM
Yes, you can't defend 6 runs in 6 balls in T20. But the batsman pulled a hamstring and it was the last wicket. There was no wicket taking delivery. He failed to show his presence. Some of his attempted cutters and yorkers turned out to be half-volleys. No pace, no yorkers, no bouncers. Either cutters/slowers or length deliveries that's what he had to offer which didn't even contain the runs.

I would be surprised if Cummins doesn't take his place.

BTW. the match reminded me of BAN vs IND final in Nidhas trophy except I just didn't care about the result.

patriot
April 8, 2018, 12:50 AM
Fizz's novelty factor has gone. He has deteriorated as a bowler and is bordeline rubbish now. He has done absolutely f'all in terms of developing his bowling so far. A lot of the blame lies on BCB and its failure to hire a competent coach to help him improve.

He got into this years IPL because of his past reputation. Mumbai Indians will bench him after a couple of matches. Almost all his deliveries are those off cutters and most batsman easily play him either on the back foot or drive him through covers. His yorkers have dissapeared and so has his pace. His one good fluke over against Vijay shankar in the Nidahas trophy was largely due to the batsman's inexperience.

This judgement of mine is NOT based on last nights performance. If you have been following Fizz closely like I did, you would know I am talking sense.

yes fizz didnt bowl that good but to remind you the pitch became more batting friendly if you look how bumrah has been dealt like a street bowler by bravo just the very early over, to me bumrah lost the match not fizz. if bumrah would not been tonked for that much runs it was easy for fizz to defend the last over, when bowler like bumrah was treated like that in earlier over you should know that 7 runs from last over is impossible to defend by any bowlers when genuine batsman like yadav was facing last over.

He went for more than 10 an over. What are you talking about? Like i said in previous posts others performance is not an excuse for your own.

It's not an impossible task. Don't talk like a newbie. It is difficult not impossible. It was a redemtion time for him even if he got tonked earlier.

I am evaluating him for an ongoing selection for future matches.

I would be upset if he had similar piss poor bowling playing for BD too. He is better than that. I don't know how an injury that he already recovered from can make such a drastic change in your performance.

How does a person go from bowling close to 145 to bowling at 130? what kinda surgery is that he underwent?? Makes no sense.

read my first post following by the one you quoted, i mentioned that musta was not bowling good but the last over scenery was already out of control by the team planning cause bumrah over damaged the calculation as i said additionally the pitch had became more batting friendly compare to firts innings that’s why dhoni took fielding first. injury is different thing if he was not fit his team must be aware of that hence they exactly know whom to pick whom not. to me fizz has these days more mental problem then injury, he seems more nervous compare to the fizz at his begining who that time seems more enjoying the cricket then the one now who looks very insecure about something and to my guess he still is afraid of injury back of his mind that’s why he is not giving full effort on pace.

April 8, 2018, 07:27 AM
If anyone remember last IPL Mustafiz bowled fast seem up deliveries and got wickets too with those deliveries. His cutters were surprise elements which added more wickets to his tallies. But in this IPL he has been bowling cutters too often and the batsmen got used to it and played with ease. Also his pace and line/length went down. I think we have lost the old fizz.

i agree. KKR was not the right team for him. His selection by them just barred him being in another team that needed him. Shakib didn't fit kkr combination.

For any other team, he gives you an extra genuine batsman or a bowler. BD team selection gets all messed up when shakib not playing

and stokes gets 2 million. And ppl think (including ours) shakib gonna have hard time getting ipl team.

Hello bhaiyos and Apus
Is Shakib winning or what?

Currently his team has about 75% chance of winning this game

Mumbai Indians had 99% chance of winning. And we all know what happened. This is t20 cricket.. one man show.

Yeah, the Bravo show.

But from this position, it looks comfortable for the SRH to knock the runs down with minimal difficulty.

Good start by Shakib... With the reluctance to play Bangladeshi players, its always important to start off well! Rashid and Shakib should be untouched in Sunrisers this season.

C Brathwaite,
C Jordan,
B Stanlake,
M Nabi,
A Hales

will rotate in one position?

Pretty much... Hales will be a flop, C Jordan doesnt fit in this squad... Remaining: Carlos, Stanlake and Nabi will rotate around as needed. Nabi is only required if Shakib cant perform. For now, its a bowling heavy squad and I think it should remain that way

None of them. Keep the telly off for two months and turn it back on when India play Afghanistan in their debut test, followed by 5 tests in England.

11 sixes!!! After the 14th over the scoring runs were 6 or 1.

Russell is just trying to catch up with Universe boss. What an innings. 36 balls 88 NO.

88+5+50+45 = 188 so far.

Me too. However, I have Bravo, Watson, Raina, Jadeja in my team along side Narine and Russell. If they beat KKR then one of them should step up and take the MoM. That is 25 points.

"Russell's 11 sixes was the most (in all T20s) for a batsman who did not score a hundred."

Shoes thrown at boundary during CSK-KKR game

A group of spectators flung a pair of shoes at the edge of the boundary in the MA Chidambaram Stadium, in the vicinity of a Chennai Super Kings fielder, prompting the intervention of the police in CSK's first home match in nearly three years.

Pat Cummins is out of this IPL due to back soreness! Is it a ripple effect of the recent ball tampering incident that BCCI is not allowing any current Aussie cricketers to play?

Fizz may get sure chances to play now although MI is packed with local bowlers.
