Boult as well being carted around as well. Dhoni with a 22 ball 50. He's been batting great this tournament.

Still a better performance than plunkett - bowled an over less and still conceded less

Glenn Maxwell literally stealing $1m every season. Once again been absolutely garbage. Ponting needs to drop the big show

Clearly shows why you need good leaders as captains in cricket. Look at Watson, Dhoni has used his capabilities perfectly well, unlike Kohli. Super man management!

I really want to argue with this as I love Maxwell but he just has not fired again really.

Plunketts performance yesterday was nothing short of a disgrace. He should not play IPL again for a long, long time

I assume by that logic Bravo should be tossed to the wayside too??

Bloody hell, wouldn't want to play for you. I'd be dropped for the season by now!  :D

Got to have some credit in the bank from the last two games, no?

Hahah wow ruffled some Plunkett fanboy feathers in here!!

His performance in IPL so far reads 3/93. And no contribution with the bat. Hard to justify picking him above Chris Morris who had a fantastic year last year to boot.

Also, it's different in elite level sport obviously! With options etc, less room for loyalty and more a cut throat business. In the game that he got 0/24 I think he was the only bowler not to take a wicket. Just all seems very ominous to me and not a player I would continue with

Fair, and I understand the IPL is different to the Village Green!  ;)

Just comes down to whether you want continuity in your team, or a team where everyone is terrified to do anything lest they screw it up and get dropped. There's a balance to be had, and if you're spending that kind of money on a player you really should give them more leeway than 18 balls.

The 93 runs he's gone for have come from 11 overs, and both the most recent two have been in some damn high scoring games.

Everyone is allowed a bad day, if Kohli scores a duck in the next 3 games are you going to say he's washed up and should never be considered again?

Chris Morris has taken 3/143 with an economy of 10.41 in the IPL this year and is currently in South Africa with a back injury.

Haha!

I understand the notions of continuity, pressure, balance of complacency etc within a team but don't feel Plunkett has done enough to warrant being selected again for the foreseeable. Maybe I was a little harsh saying ever haha

Also, "most recent two have been in some damn high scoring games" - his good performance was in a low scoring game was it not, so it's swings and roundabouts. He hasn't done anything previously in IPL to make me think hes got IT which is where your Kohli comparison falls down somewhat.  Not a fan. Not an elite level IPL player for me.
