well he has the potential to be a good late order batsman. he has good strength to slog the ball out of the park. he has some good stroke.

but one of his problems his premeditates more and try to hit all the balls for six.

several times we have seen if he settles in the middle and tries to play straight he can be more useful.

I hope he gets his touch back soon

I used to. Particularly, after his 2 70's against India. Sadly, not any more. I believe he is somewhat scared against real pace which even our tailenders are not. His moving away to smack the ball is not just to give himself more room, he also gets out of the line of fire. A fast yorker usually does the trick.

he batted very well against India, after that he somehow forget how to bat and showing very poor form in SL and T20 WC. Hope it's time to get his form back vs NZ but I highly doubted in NZ bouncy pitch...wish i'm wrong.

I agree, he lost his batting, as he tries to slog every ball, as if this is the last ball of the innings. I think something bothered him so he stop being a sensible batsman. He has the potential though.

He is a good batsman when he doesnt try to hit the ball as though he's in a basball game.

Mashrafe Mortaza is a good batsman. But since he is the 'True Tiger' of the Bangladesh cricket team, everything depends on the mood. Jokhon khudar udrek hoy, opposition team er ar rokhsha nai. And India is our Mash Tiger's favorite :D

He batted very well in the world cup matches and that was against fast bowlers too, especailly against SA.

not only fast yorkers, even slower balls on the stumps will do the trick. ant good bowler will find it out.

Don't rate anything from his batting as he's our prime bowler .

I am sure noone rated Mcgrath's batting ever but still he had a 50 in the test match against the KIwis also "Jason Gillespie" got 200+ against Bangladesh , still people don't rate his batting for sure .

Batsmen should do their job then he won't have to bat anymore .

Mash is very weak against quality pace. Not that I mind it, it is the truth. Other than that he can actually bat better than many of our bests.

he is batting like a no 11. though he score 17 he was showing all the stumps to the bowlers. it seems like he is afraid of getting hit and going away from the ball. It became irritating for eyes now

he is a hit or miss batsman. and i don't rate his batting. he is not in the team to score runs regularly. he is there to take wickets which he is not doing for sometime

Come on guys... at the time he was in the crease, he was in tremendous pressure as we were 7 down and we were only in the middle of the innings. He's not a defensive player. He's a slogger so if he came to bat after 40 overs, it would have been different inning you would have witnessed. We lost way too many wickets in the middle overs in Srilanka series and also in this match as well. So you cannot blame him as he's not a good batsman. He's a hard hitting tail ender.

I think at the moment, he should just concentrate on his bowling. His bowling just going downhill..

I think VC role is not for him. IMO it put a lot of pressure in him thus hes struggling in both batting and bowling. VC role should be given to someone else.

Mash is not under that great pressure as a Vice Captain, the Captain is under pressure. Mash is only a sort of figurehead.
I have seen a much better Mash during the course of this hyear. He has lost his confidence as a bowler and a batsman, and you know what other countries do? Player is dropped and sent to play first class matches to regain form and confidence.
One example is Captain Jawardena, dropped from national team after 2003 WC, played first class cricket for a while, regained his form and confidence and gave of his best between 2005 and 2007, became the highest run scorer for a Sri lankan batsmen. He reinvented himself. A lot of other national players have done the same, dropped, then recalled and start performing well. BCB has to take a hard look at this and give specialized training. Mash is still good, he needs to work with someone or else BD will lose a good cdricketer.

i dont know what happened to Mashrafee but he has TOTALLY LOST his touch. He doesnt play any cricketing shot anymore like he used to. I dont know what does he do in practice and how come coaches dont say anything abt that.

At this moment- not much. Hope I don't have to say the same about his bowling in the near future!

Although, Mash has tremendous potential...we have to see if this can be translated in performance.

I don't rate him right now. He is scared to face fast bowlers and short pitched stuff. We have all seen how he backs away. Even Razzak stood his ground to faster bowlers. He is pretty good at slogging spinners to the stand however. But, I don't expect any captain to feed him spinners . I am more worried with his bowling right now. Usually, when he bowls well, he follows it up with good batting.

cant recall how frequently he used to do this, but now he flinches away from the line of almost every delivery (same thing that Rafiq is doing for the past 2-3 years). Mashrafee misses the line almost everytime and the mis-timed connections make it to the boundary cuz of the power. But I really think Siddons can help him change this....

the way he was OUT against NZ was amazing. he just had a punch and it went to the boundary.

Sounds like he's worse than Murali in batting right now:P

He's supposed to be our main strike bowler, so that I could care less about his batting. Any runs we get out of him should be considered a bonus, because if the guys who get paid to score can't do so, then there's no point in crucifying the bowlers.

Too bad his bowling hasn't been up to par lately, but even the best in the world have lean patches. He'll come out of it.

Spot on. Looks like Coach Siddons has some work to do here. I still think he'll become our first genuine seaming all-rounder in all forms of the sport by the next WC once Coach Siddons has his way with him.

He's not flintoff. Simple as that.

The thing is mashrafe shouldnt be required to hold the innings together and score big, he is there to score a quick 10-20 , the rest is for the batsman to do, if they fail then its not his fault.

You know,, I dont think Mashrafee is interested in batting much. He mentioned that to Ravi Sashstri when Ravi asked him about those 70s he scored against India. Mashrafee mentioned that he doesnt want to concentrate on his batting as he is a bowler first and doesnt consider himself as an all-rounder. With a batting degradation like what he has been demonstrated ( lack of technique, sense, eye, reflex, skills, defence, etc. etc.), he is just fish out of water with the bat. Its a gigantic fall from a guy who was known as Kowshik, the 18 year old who scored 66 in 17 balls and used to be a fearless batter....Siddons will have to hire a psychologist, a specialist trainer and a batting coach just for Mashrafee to return back to his previous self.
