Today, June 18....our anniversary day of a spectacular win over Australia at NatWest series. It still gives me a lot of pleasure and thrill. Specially...Ashraful's ton and Aftab's over the boundary shot! I wish Ashraful (also Aftab and others) will show more maturity and devotion to reach us in the final round of Champions Trophy this October which will lead us to celebrate a day or two in weeks instead of celebrating anniversary!!

Actually June 16 is still a historical day for some. One year ago this day, while taking a nap between practice, Ash saw a strange dream. Actually that motivated Ash to score that century.

I was at the South Avenue Gym watching it all happen with my buddy H, a former medium pacer for a major Dhaka outfit. We saw highly unlikely possibilities unfold right before our eyes as Ash decided to defy the odds and take the fight to the Australian doorstep. I remember Ponting chewing on his fingernail, I'm sure it was the middle finger, like there's no tomorrow - lost in confusion and increasingly fearful of the impending doom. I could see the wheels and cogs of rationalization being greased in the back of his mind. Then Ash took that single to get what he deserved, and we knew that our Tigers were about to beat the unbeatable ...

The last word on the greatest batsman Bangladesh has produced to this early date? We always have a chance to win if Ash stays in the middle, therefore he simply needs to, now more than ever as "Captain Bangladesh".

Heres cricinfos take on the day in their regular column "All Today's yesterdays"
Crash Bang Walloped (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ci/content/current/story/149613.html)2005
"The most embarrassing defeat in our sport history" was how Sydney's Daily Telegraph summed up a performance that reverberated around the globe. Bangladesh had been 500 to 1 outsiders for their opening encounter with Australia in the NatWest Series, but having restricted a lacklustre opposition to 249 for 5, they set about scripting a miracle. Led by the diminutive Mohammad Ashraful, whose even 100 was his maiden one-day century, they paced their chase to perfection until, with seven required from the final over, Aftab Ahmed walloped Jason Gillespie out towards the River Taff for a massive six. A scrambled single later, and the greatest upset - perhaps in any sport ever - had been completed.

I was one of those 5% who adhered with Ash.
Alhamdullillah, our team persisted with Ash:-| , or else I am wondering where this thread would've been now!

i feel like I should be a Villain and pulled up this thread because
"Mohammad Ashraful equaled the record for most ducks scored by a Bangladesh batsmen. His third-ball duck today was his 11th in Tests drawing him level with Khaled Mashud. "

July 3, 2007, 08:30 AM
well i think ashraful has been the biggest flop (after all that hype) of the tour so far.

its not easy to captain the side and cope up with the performance, may be these are early signs though! waste of talent to say the least!

well as far as i remember he was also out in a first ball duck in the second test of the ind series...that does nt help his average either...anyway these kind of records are meant to be forgotten, hope he realizes his talent and deliver along with the team!
