View Full Version : Smart thinkink Captain ASHRAFUL

Mohammad Ashraful displayed that he has what it takes to step into Habibul Bashar’s shoes. While skipper Bashar sat in the dressing room for nearly an hour, his deputy took charge of the situation during the post-lunch session on the opening day of the first Test against India here on Friday.
Bangladesh scalped two of their three wickets in that period of play and all credit goes to Ashraful. Firstly, when Mashrafee bin Murtaza came onto bowl Dinesh Karthik, he set an attacking field despite the player being well set at the wicket.
The ploy paid off as Karthik miscued a pull shot that fell safely into the hands of Ashraful at mid-off. But instead continuing with the same bowler, the acting captain had another trick up his sleeve.
Straight after Enamul Haque Jr completed his over, Ashraful gave the ball to Shahadat Hossain. And with the very first delivery of the over, Shahadat forced Indian captain Rahul Dravid to nick a catch behind the stumps, a wicket which indeed augurs a bright future for captain Ashraful. :) :-D

Yepp...all his moves paid off...Yet, may be its too early to even compare him with Bashar as a captain. Lets see when he gets the full opportunity.

Well if he's performing well with the bat as well (let's see how he does in the test series), I see no reason why we shouldn't hand him the captaincy in or after the series in sri lanka.

For time being, he should be tested only for ODI as a captain! Then time would take it's course...:-D

yes, that's actually a good idea. we still don't know if we can drop bashar from the test side as well - a lot of it depends on this series.

I concur. Also, I think this business of Bashar getting off the field for periods of lets say 1 to 2 hrs and let Ash marshall his troop is good idea.

Will it help Ash to get captaincy in Test and ODI if Bashar will not retire?

A man in the making.
May be this is what he needs.
Some degree of responsibility on his shoulder.
See how Ponting changed as a batsman after he became the captain of the Australian team. Now im not going to compare him with Ashraful, but some people does handle the role of leadership very well and actually lead from the front.

IF Ashraful can become what he has been promising us to be, BD cricket will be the ultimate winner.

Hey! Hey!

Please do not insult Ashraful. Anybody can be a better captain than our esteemed captain. Ashraful showed that he can be a genuinely good captain. Admitted it was a short stint, but morning shows the day.

Agreed. I was highly impressed with his field placing and attacking mindset. I defintiely want him out captain after this series ( If possible, from 2nd Test.) Give Hablu Bye bye and bring Nazmus Sadat or Raqibul or Tushar Imran back to his place. It wil be a much better team.
