Here comes the stick....Agarkar....

Actually Had they versted faith in Dinda, Shukla, Agarkar,SG etc and developed some of their skills(specialised) and used them wisely KKR may have landed in a better postion.
e.g When Hodge cam in today and the way he played, It seems they wanted to bat till 15 overs and then take the charge. If that was the case, sendo somebody like Agarkar,Saha or any despensable resource , ask him to throw his bat around, he may score a duck or may score a 20 of 10 balls. At that stage of game with the strategy in mind you know KKR will bat 20 overs.
I think JB is treating KKR players as outlaws and wants to win the game purely by their overseas player, This IMo will be their biggest reason for defeat.

I seriously doubt that.  Your take to me is very speculative and does not have merit.  Why would he then entrust Ishant, Dinda, Agarkar and Karthik to do the job with the ball.

And when I am wondering what was wrong with Agarkar he obliges and deliver two boundary balls.  The real Agarkar finally shows up.  Good.  There is nothing wrong with the world. :)

Buchy is trying his best to get rid of the Ganguly-effect off KKR!
He is sadly getting exposed here.
I am sure, he would rue this decision to coach any team in IPL. :D

I would love to see some profound philosophy shape up new age- cricket, rather than bat and ball.
All the best Buchy!

Based on the team composition that is not a bad move for this game atleast.  However that is debatable which I agree.  But to attach motives behind everymove(not you but in general) is really silly.  Every coach and captain have their preferences and JB is no exception to that.  Having said I did not like the way KKR went about their business this entire IPL.

I agree it is speculative, I dont have the real insights on what is going on. The opnion is based on reading the acts as they unfold.
SG does not seem may get to ball today with six bowlers already used.  In batting he was number six after  Saha, may be ysahpal would have come before him, Not that I wanted SG to open or anything, but the instructions that were to some of these overseas bats seemed like they have to stay till over 20.
KKR's batting has been problem so far. So they trusted all foreign bats for this ?

Why not ask Yashpal or Saha to just go and tonk all bowls in nets and let these guys play a small cameo in middle. If BHodge was asked to play a graftign inngs at 50 SR to start with, why not Saha or SG ?
Having trusting all desi bowlers is fine, but mendis does belong there.
I hate to say but they are trying strategies they can't sustain.  If Mendis is a better bowler why not have him in game.

I think this is indicative of a bias. And inability to think outside the box but for outlandish thoughts. He was more familiar with certain players, and built his plans around them. When they failed, as can quite normally happen, he had no plan B.  This may be incorrect, as I would agree that there is not a load of evidence. You can argue about specifics and motives, who knows what this guy thinks ... but at the end of the day, I think one just cannot disagree that this has been a complete disaster starting with the selected squad and the subsequent handling which in many ways defied common sense.

I think along the way you need to also give some respect to the opposing bowlers.  Nehra and Nannes for most part this game and Mishra bowled very well.  So I do not think not using SG was bad or playing all the 4 overseas bats in the top 4 positions totally wrong either.  I do not think in a must win game Yashpal Singh or Saha are the answers though I like Saha to be used widely in the coming games.

I think your criticism of Hodge is harsh.  Go look at the prior two games on how well he played.  I think he is a better option than SG or Saha all things considered in this KKR lineup.  Because he did not come off in this game does not mean we doubt his credentials.  On the same token SG has three games where he scored 0, 1 an 1 and looked bad.  So who is to say he would not have pulled off one of those.

The only thing I am puzzled just like others here is what happended to Mendis and why is he not being used.   That beats me.

Have the KKR players entered into a contract of dropping all catches and missing all run outs? Some entairtenment channel perhaps?

The problem is ...without a strong captain a team just falls apart.
KKR did bat well...quite gamely...and yet they cannot defend this total.........DD seems to be doing this easily.
This is becoz of the lack of team-spirit...which has just evaporated.

Even last time......I am repeating here........Ganguly did a much better job of running the team ( winning 6 matches + 1 drawn).....inspite of having a less than full strength team...........Gayle wasn't there, Ponting was in no form.......McCullum played only 2 or 3 matches.

Personally I do not like the way KKR ran this entire operations so we will be more in agreement.  I always felt that SG should NOT have been the captain this year as he is a year old not a year young in comparision to last year and is not the answer or the person to lead a 20-20 effort.  I think that is what SRK and JB felt too but did not play it right.   The proof is in the pudding in the way of the results and starting from the top all the way down to the players they all have a share of the blame.

It is one thing to not want him as captain, for example he could be a liability as player. I was never sure of SG/VVSL/RD as T20 players .... would take them if they played well. But multiple captains is a different load of crap. Secondly, if you want to change your captain, please do so well in advance, not when the tournament is about to begin.

I think the captaincy issue has put undue pressure on the simpleton McCullum.......he is trying to come out of it...by showing that he is enjoying the game......but all this was quite avoidable to begin with.

Here comes the stick....Agarkar....

Actually Had they versted faith in Dinda, Shukla, Agarkar,SG etc and developed some of their skills(specialised) and used them wisely KKR may have landed in a better postion.
e.g When Hodge cam in today and the way he played, It seems they wanted to bat till 15 overs and then take the charge. If that was the case, sendo somebody like Agarkar,Saha or any despensable resource , ask him to throw his bat around, he may score a duck or may score a 20 of 10 balls. At that stage of game with the strategy in mind you know KKR will bat 20 overs.
I think JB is treating KKR players as outlaws and wants to win the game purely by their overseas player, This IMo will be their biggest reason for defeat.
I seriously doubt that.  Your take to me is very speculative and does not have merit.  Why would he then entrust Ishant, Dinda, Agarkar and Karthik to do the job with the ball.
Well ..playing Moises ahead of AM or even Mortaza doesnt make sense.
Based on the team composition that is not a bad move for this game atleast.  However that is debatable which I agree.  But to attach motived behind everymove is really silly.  Every coach and captain have their preferences and JB is no exception to that.  Having said I did not like the way KKR went about their business this entire IPL.
I think this is indicative of a bias. And inability to think outside the box but for outlandish thoughts. He was more familiar with certain players, and built his plans around them. When they failed, as can quite normally happen, he had no plan B.  This may be incorrect, as I would agree that there is not a load of evidence. You can argue about specifics and motives, who knows what this guy thinks ... but at the end of the day, I think one just cannot disagree that this has been a complete disaster starting with the selected squad and the subsequent handling which in many ways defied common sense.
Personally I do not like the way KKR ran this entire operations so we will be more in agreement.  I always felt that SG should NOT have been the captain this year as he is a year old not a year young in comparision to last year and is not the answer or the person to lead a 20-20 effort.
It is one thing to not want him as captain, for example he could be a liability as player. I was never sure of SG/VVSL/RD as T20 players .... would take them if they played well. But multiple captains is a different load of crap. Secondly, if you want to change your captain, please do so well in advance, not when the tournament is about to begin.
That is where we all seem to agree not because Ganguly is not the captain and majority on this DG seem to go with that as well but how fool hardy was on the part of SRK and JB to promote a theory not go with it and then wait till the day before the IPL to announce a singular captain.  That is real foolish to put it mildly.

It is not the theory sir. The theory was fine....only that it wasn't implemented.
I am of the opinion that KKR at the moment has no better captain than Ganguly.
I don't see any worse thing happening to KKR...............and Ganguly has always been a fine captain.

Blwe:For your sake I would want SG to take the mantle one last time.  All is lost now for KKR because even if they win all five, six wins will not get them to the SF's.  May be SG can inspire some of these new players to better performances and get couple of wins.  Sometimes a change in gaurd does help with a new voice.  Why not?

Not me because CP's DD is now at the top of the points table and a KKR win would have pegged them back a little.

Kuch karna padega.....
