Default IPL KKR: Shakib's absence

It's absolutely mind boggling that KKR are not playing Shakib in their XI. Very stupid selection. In current form he would be the best batsman AND bowler in the team.

IPL selections in general are extremely biased and shows lack of planning and knowledge on the part of the coaches. Almost all the IPL teams are coached by Australian or South Africans. These coaches heavily favour players from their own state teams. For example, the Deccan Chargers' coach is Darrel Lehmann who is from South Australia. That's why they picked Daniel Harris and Daniel Christian in their starting XI.

KKR are coached by Trevor Bayliss, who is from NSW. So, we can expect Brett Lee to picked in the XI every time, even though he has been a pathetic bowler in the T20 format in the last couple of years.

If Gautam Gambhir was a more influencial and imaginative captain, thinks could've been different. But he's not, and I can't see things improving any time soon.

Screw it, had enough. Shakib & Tamim being benched back to back games. Why? Just cuz they're Bangladeshi. It's evident now.

I think team management would be forced to put Shakib in the next game with his name echoing from every corner. The problem is not Shakib, Naraine or Ten D. The problem is Kallis and McCullum. Until one or both of them are dropped this team cannot win. Kallis is too slow, McCullum is too fast and gets out too quick.

not only that. They must play him in every match and not just "try" him in a few games and "see how he does". They are missing a gem of an allrounder.

LIke someone pointed out in FB, really doesn't affect Tamim or Shakib if they are benched. They have nothing to prove. The only benefit that I see is for them to get more exposure to IPL fans and the IPL fans seeing more BD players in action.

Also, turns out Shakib's other team Worcs may lose Ajmal. They got back into the first div on the back of some solid performance from Shakib two years back. He went back last year for a good season. He did not get his contract renewed for whatever reason. Now, Worcs will struggle without the two best spinners in the world. I see a pattern of teams suffering without Shakib. If you pick him, play him or and don't drop him.

They will play him and then bench him for the rest of the season if he fails in one game. Then again, he probably won't fail.

Well KKR is doing terribly without Shakib, so hopefully they will come to their senses. Given Shakib's current age, all-round class and temperament, KKR should make him vice-captain and groom him for captaincy in the future. It also doesn't hurt that he's Bengali. He will have support from all of West Bengal and Bangladesh.

KKR can go screw themselves. Just release Shak, I'm sure plenty of Franchisees would be interested in buying him where he would make to the playing XI regularly.

"Two back-to-back defeats cannot lead to pressing panic button for us and still we have to play 14 matches. So two defeats don't matter much," he added. Asked if Bangladeshi player Sakib-ul-Hassan should have been played on this wicket, Gambhir said that he would not talk about the individual players.



"It is a team game and we select the best team according to the need of the hour and such talks are good only on the hindsight. Perhaps losing three wickets in first two overs did us in and it was a dream start for the Rajasthan."

He's talking about the Arab Spring, protests in Iran, etc etc. I'm sure there are even more examples in the less serious sports/entertainment industry

From getting Betty White to Saturday Night Live to solving serious issues in the Middle East and Africa. Twitter is the 21st century 's lazy rebel system.

This is hysterical! My friend from NY just called saying he opened a twitter account specifically for shakib 's mess. Lol he was tweeting kkr and Srk. I told him to use that hastag. Couple of min later the account got suspended. Hahah kkr can't handle the heat. I saw the tweets while they were still available. He didn't abuse anyone or anything.

So you know its working. Everyone should start doing it.

What's the point? Let them ignore him as much as they want. It's their team, their management, their selection. As long as they are paying Shakib's dues and not making him wash the dishes, no need to start such a campaign just to get him on their team. It'll just put unnecessary pressure on Shakib. Don't want to see an epic fail in the end and them saying- Told Ya!

Thats exactly what I'm afraid of. Shakib is on top form right now and no doubt he deserves a chance to be in the playing 11. Shakib doesn't need us to fight for him, he has it all to do the talking with his performance. Some of us claiming shakib will do this or that is not going to help his cause. Because it is very much possible that shakib's form might fall apart completely when he gets picked and than we all look like bunch of whinny losers. Let shakib handle it all on his own. If he gets selected KKR will get my suppprt, if they don't than oh well its their loss.

KKR's mess is all down to McCullum playing in the XI. His inclusion changed the whole balance and dynamism of the team.
