Check out this great article (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/current/story/297031.html) written by Jamie Alter from Cricinfo. Its one of todays specials on their site.


Ashraful's youth and energy can lead Bangladesh's revival
Captain Kid
Jamie Alter

Mohammad Ashraful's appointment as Bangladesh captain should not come as a surprise to those who've watched him over the years and, indeed, there was no hesitation in the Bangladesh Cricket Board's decision to give Ashraful the charge of both teams after Habibul Bashar relinquished the ODI captaincy. While some will call it a gamble or stop-gap move he is, on seniority and street credit, the best man for the job.

We did? In that case, the mods can merge it i guess. I just thought it was a great way to synthesize pretty much everything we've talked about. The little snippets of interviews (both old and new) were also worth a read IMO. But i leave it up to the mods...

Time for Ashraful to become the benchmark of our hopes and dreams.
Time to shine.
Time to rise.
Time to be the man he always promised us to be.

The key for Ashraful in his new role will be a willingness to learn. He will need to turn to his seniors - Bashar, Javed Omar and Mohammad Rafique - for advice. He has admitted that he will need to maintain the standard set by Bashar and Whatmore, but he will also benefit from conversing with his young team-mates. Someone like Mortaza, capable of winning a session and even a game, could offer advice on field settings and bowling strategies. In that sense Ashraful has few burdens; this is a young side with scant room for egos and everyone has more to learn.What I find heartening is both Ash and Mash have recognized the necessity of synergy in communication and flow of ideas/advice on field. Alter also makes a good point that we need to "maintain" the standard set by DW and, to some extent, Bashar. Many of us are overbuoyed by the new injection of a Captain. The fact remains that the team hasn't gone through any magical change. The core set of players is still the same. The question is, can this regime change translate to a more effective conversion of potential? To me, the primary objective of Ash-Mash regime ought to be at least "maintaining" the level of intensity and skills we have achieved in the past few seasons. Expect nothing fancy. This is a team in transition, and our foremost mission will be to avoid falling apart. That doesn't mean we can't be cautiously optimistic though. This signifies beginning of a new era, and we have reason to be hopeful. Overall, it's a well-written article by Jamie Alter.
