A couple things to note, I think it was very evident that Shakib had a say in the playing XI at the end of Jamie's tenure, if he playing XI was picked that wasn't to his liking he'd vent (I'm using a very conservative word here) to the media how, it wasn't to his liking and he'd get it changed. Wasn't afraid to throw jabs at Masri and others, I thought he had an agenda on who was picked and didn't pick. I don't think it's the Captains role to pick the playing XI, Vettori did it and we all saw the results. The Pipeline isn't short, he just has a few friends that have been on the team that he'd like for it work out with.
Now we have a new Coach and cycle and everybody for the most part gets a clean slate in the eyes of the new coach, it would be interesting if Player X catches the eye of Law but not Shakib, what would happen.
Like I said before
He likes using the media, I haven't seen any concrete results from his tenure that should demand this much authority
12.6 Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, OUT: What a delivery, completely fooled Sangakkara, first five delivery were the outswingers and now, this one comes in sharply, Sangakkara tries to left it and ball hits the off stump, top class bowling!
