Of course it's a choice. He could have retired like Malinga, Vettori, Gilchrist, Sangakkara, de Villiers etc but instead chose to play test cricket over IPL.

And had he played over 100 tests without voluntarily missing one unlike most other members of the England 100 test club:

Alec Stewart
Ian Bell
Graham Gooch
Colin Cowdrey
Geoff Boycott
Ian Botham
Andrew Strauss
Graham Thorpe
All the best in finding an impartial witness in the KP saga. Maybe we should consult the gospel according to Piers.

Dissing Geoffrey as well...sacrilege!

Amazed Morgan still gets a gig going by that, he really doesn't have a great record in IPL and his recent performances for England in big competitions, including last year's World t20 was crap too.

Morgan has also spent a lot of IPL games on the bench. It's strange that he keeps being picked up, year after year. But not so strange that he's played for several different franchises.

Perception trumps performance. Stokes being the most expensive player is an example: as I commented on the ICC Rankings thread, his actual performances have been largely poor. Having said that, I suppose the data set is small.

I think it's probably because he's the England captain. They can say it's the only PL with the Aussie, English and Indian captain. The fact he played decently against India might have also helped.

Slightly disappointing end to his 4 overs but still a decent start for Rashid Khan.

Arrow Why Rashid Worth $600,000

He should get 3rd wicket as well, but umpire not given BINNY LBW.

Who is 18 year old Rashid Khan? $600,000 worth?

http://www.espncricinfo.com/indian-p...nt/story/10902

The lowdown on Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan made history by becoming the first Afghanistan player to be picked for an IPL game. But who is he, and what has he done

Who is Rashid Khan?
Afghanistan's legspinning Messiah, with a googly so good it's like manna from heaven. $600,000 worth of awesome is also an acceptable answer.

Why is his selection in the opening game of IPL 2017 significant?
With his selection in the Sunrisers Hyderabad XI, Rashid became the second player from an Associate country to play in the IPL while still ostensibly active for his national team. One could make a case that Rashid is truly the first, and at the very least the first organically home-grown Associate player, to make a debut in the IPL.

Dirk Nannes took the new ball for Netherlands in their famous win over England at Lord's in the 2009 World T20, two weeks after wrapping up his first season with Delhi Daredevils. Nannes' Dutch career was short lived after he was picked to play for his native Australia later that same summer.

South African T20 nomad Ryan ten Doeschate also had a lengthy list of appearances with Netherlands, but made his debut for Kolkata Knight Riders in 2011 three weeks after he signed off on his Dutch career with a century against Ireland in the 2011 World Cup.

What are his strengths?
Only 18 years old, Rashid's biggest asset is not a physical skill but his ability to come through in pressure situations. Sunrisers coach Tom Moody identified that as a key reason for bidding INR 4 crore for Rashid at the auction. At any Afghanistan match, the mood changes when Rashid takes the ball, his charisma imbuing confidence in fans and team-mates regardless of how solid or perilous a position his side is in.

As for his physical skills, Rashid has immaculate control for a legspinner, leading to a spectacular economy rate. He builds pressure not just through dot balls but through his rapid approach to the crease and quickness through the air, bowling at a pace akin to his idol Shahid Afridi. He turns his googly more than his legbreak, and his ability to disguise it so well causes fits for left-handers in particular.

What has he been up to recently?
On the same day he was taken in the CPL draft by Guyana Amazon Warriors, Rashid produced a record haul of 5 for 3 in two overs against Ireland to keep Afghanistan's world-record streak of consecutive T20I wins - 11 - alive.

In the second ODI against Ireland, Rashid showed Paul Stirling that "anything you can do I can do better", besting Stirling's 6 for 55 in the first innings by taking 6 for 43 in the second. Rashid finished as the leading wicket-taker in both the T20I and ODI series, and then took a five-for in the first innings - eight wickets for the match - in Afghanistan's Intercontinental Cup win over Ireland. To say he enters the IPL in good form is putting it mildly.

What are the highlights of his career?
Rashid can hang his hat on those twin record-setting T20 and ODI hauls last month against Ireland. He was Afghanistan's leading wicket-taker on the way to winning the Desert T20 Challenge in January, helped Afghanistan U-19 beat New Zealand and Zimbabwe on the way to the Plate Championship at the 2016 U-19 World Cup. He's also been a regular thorn in the side of Zimbabwe's senior team over the last 18 months since making his senior debut as a 17-year-old in October 2015.

Most of all, Rashid has made Afghanistan believe there is a path to success with or without Hamid Hassan, Afghanistan's original - but oft-injured - bowling talisman. Success for Rashid in the IPL will give added credibility to the deeds of others at Associate level and could perhaps open the door to IPL contracts for Associate players both within and beyond Afghanistan.

Mills will be bounce back soon.

Hector,
I think Mills will bounce back in the next game 'cause yesterday,
he gave lot less runs than other veteran like Nehra on batting paradise track-379 runs were scored in 20/20.

Because it is great cricket and a thrilling spectacle, perhaps?

Really enjoyed the game on Sky sports today. Brilliant bowling by Imran Tahir and then the phenomenon that is Steve Smith finished the game with two sixes to see Supergiant home with juust a single ball to spare.

It was breathtaking, edge-of-your-seat stuff. Cricket at its very best and I'm sorry if you missed it, MRNC4.0.

Like it or not, the IPL, the BBL and the Ashes are now world cricket's three top tournaments. The task of the ECB is to create a competition to rival them. What a shame and a frustration that we have to wait until 2020 for it to start!

Buttler wrongly given out is followed up by an awful, awful LBW decision against Rohit. If DRS doesn't come into the tournament soon - given it's all televised, the rules are the only impediment at present - and there are a few more decisions like that there will be some real questions that need to be asked.

Gotta wonder whether this kid is the best leg spinner in the world at the moment. McCullum, Raina and Finch are a trio of scalps to be proud of.

It's hard to judge when he's played so little at the top level but he seems to have an astonishing level of consistency and a great array of change-ups. That control is unique, though - been a long time since there was a leggie who could land it in the right place almost every ball.

At least the Buttler decision looked a 50:50 call on the field (which was of course then proven wrong on replays), I wasn't watching the TV screen for the Sharma dismissal and what I thought I heard was ball meeting middle of the bat. I heard an appeal and began wondering how high they were. Apparently not as high as the umpire.

Anyway, great match in the end- 50 runs in the last 3 overs.
