Tired of looking @ the 1st Page of the forum and seeing 50 threads on Ash Saying Same thing, people upping threads from 5 years ago etc. It is clear to me everything Ash does good or bad has to have it's own Thread. I Can guarantee if he scores a Century in the next Test somebody will open a "Thank You Ash Thread" or a "I told you so Thread" or if he throws his wicket away We need a new Captain Thread etc.

We are some how infatuated with what he does, it's been like this for 5 years and counting and I'm sure he'll do this to us for the next 10 years as well.

So post everything you want about Ash for everything he does from Domestic/Rainhill/IPL/Bangladesh that makes you love/hate/pull your hair/drop him/next Tendulkar/next Kapali thread.

Plus it's a better way of Keeping Track of what he does as he is our most Important player for Bangladesh's success. So if you want to Ask the Really Hard Question about his Irresponsible/responsible/Breathtaking/Stupid/Great innings do it here. Hopefully this Thread exists in another 10 years so we can if has grown to the player that some of us thought he can be or just a player who couldn't Justify his talents.

If mods feel this is unnecessary ya can just delete it ... it's just an eye sore to see Ash this/that etc. Plus I've seen other forums do this as well.

Ash plays those paddle scoop shots rather brilliantly! He also bowls rather...

well done cricman for this glorious idea. i'm getting fed up of these " should ash be dropped" , "should ash be captain", " should ash bowl",.." should ash fart" threads:mad:

lol...nice thread idea Cricman.
this is why I suggested that every player should have their own thread...and all discussion about that player should go in that ONE thread. it's easier to keep track of discussions that way..tou don't have to jump thread to thread to talk about the same player.

Guys some of u may not agree with me but there is a serious problem here in our batting line up for test cricket. As Atahar Ali khan was discuusing with Arun lal that of our 53 test matces we only achived 13 test hundred total among them 4 test 100 came from Ashraful's bat. we all know what kind of talent he has.......... now he is the man in charge. i understand there is a lot of pressure as a captain, when u see your team is falling a part and u r comming to bat 4/5 and there is not enough run on the board u like to go for some risky shot and gets out. when u get out....... we have to say it is all over.
move him up as an opener he can play a responsible innig with out any worry and we will have run on the board.

I totally agree with this comment. I think we need to arrange the batting lineup accordingly. But then again, there is so many players in our squad right now fighting for the spots. Before Tamim broke into the scene, there was Javed Omar and Shahriar Nafees as openers. Now we have two new openers, where is Shahriar Nafees suppose to fit at #3, i have yet to see him perform well in that position. As for Habibul Bashar's spot, i think the second test should be his last attempt to make any impact, if not then we should definetly bring in Rajin Saleh. Though his strike rate isnt admirable, he can hold the crease for a long time.
I think we still have not found a decent combination since fatullah 2006.

Ashraful is scoring in the 30s more consistantly than ever. Basically he takes the bowlers by storm, but its the storm that leads to his demise.

Look at his last year's performance in Test. Also look at his strike rates.
He made 1 century and 1 fifty from 9 innings. Averaged 36.25 which is 11 more than his current career average. Still people questiong his Test playing abilities.

So far in this year he's not doing that bad. His zeros are not helping him :(
We still have around 4/5 Tests left in this year. I'm sure he will make average around 40 this year inshallah.

Ashraful is scoring in the 30s more consistantly than ever. Basically he takes the bowlers by storm, but its the storm that leads to his demise.

Now if our other top 7 Batsmen, could get to 30 consistently than we'd get more respectable test looking innings going over the 250 barrier easily. I know getting to 30 means you've only done 30% of your Job, Top order Batsmen should always look to score 100's but it would put a lot less burden on him if he batted @ 130/3 rather and 60/3.

And yes we do run 7 batsmen deep, Tamim (0), Juniad, Bashar (0), SN, Ash, Aftab, Sakib and Mushi (0) actually thats 8. Last Test we got good contributions from Ash, Aftab, Juniad and Sakib (His last innings doesn't IMO) ... some what SN too. Tamim hasn't had Match practice and selectors and Coach throw him up against a bowling attack like South Africa.

(0) contributed crap in term if partnership in this last Test

Plus the odds say the more you get to 30 a few will crack 50 and than some may even get that 100. Plus if you get 30 odds are your going to make good partnerships of 50-60-100 as well.

I think Ash will be on his toes this next innings I predict a Big one from him, plus he'e been grinding when it come to playing Test cricket lately you guys see one innings where he put away about 5 Bad Balls his SR goes over 100 and he's not playing Test Cricket, what type of stupid logic is that?

Guys some of u may not agree with me but there is a serious problem here in our batting line up for test cricket. As Atahar Ali khan was discuusing with Arun lal that of our 53 test matces we only achived 13 test hundred total among them 4 test 100 came from Ashraful's bat. we all know what kind of talent he has.......... now he is the man in charge. i understand there is a lot of pressure as a captain, when u see your team is falling a part and u r comming to bat 4/5 and there is not enough run on the board u like to go for some risky shot and gets out. when u get out....... we have to say it is all over.
move him up as an opener he can play a responsible innig with out any worry and we will have run on the board.

Ashraful is not an opener. He's not comfortable there and it's plain to see. We should leave the opening to the openers. We got plenty openers waiting as well. Middle order needs help...and Ashraful can provide some sort of stronghold there.

I was looking at my cricket channel a few days ago and they were showing highlights of the 2003 WC game between Bangladesh and NZ, one of the openers was no other than Ash. He scored 56 runs and the little guy looked so happy there. He took a lovely catch of mahmud's bowling, and he ran to Mahmud and gave him a spontaneous hug. One could see that he was a teenager.
I heard that world cup was a nightmare for BD.
I agree that BCB used him too much in his early years in international matches, and they experimented with him in the batting order, I think he should play at 4 or 5.
He still has the same strokeplay, also IMO since Siddons came as coach, his batting has deterioted, because Siddons is trying to change his style of batting, he should leave him alone, just tell him not to loft the balls in the air.At this stage, he cannot change, the damage has already been done, he should have played more first class cricket and played in the A team for a few years, but was elevated to test and international player too quickly. Not only this, but expectations of him was too high, and he has failed to meet fan's expectations, also mentally, he was never ready at such an early age.He knows that he has failed, and one can see his frustration, e.g. slapping a disgruntled fan etc.
England has many loyal fans who follow them around the world when they are playing whether they win or lose, they have the loyal support of their fans. and England is slated at N07 in the ICC ranking and they have been playing cricket since the 1830
Now, after watching that match, it was not a bad performance and only one player has survived in the national team and that is Ashraful. In 4 years all the others have gone, so who knows what will happen by the tme the next world cup comes around.
Hopefully, Siddons says that he will keep a squad together for 2 years and let them play together, which is a good plan.
When Southee made a quick test 50 for NZ, they also highlighted that Mohamad Ashraful made the second fastest 50 in test cricket at Dhaka.
In as much as he has failed more often than succeed, he has some notable records to his name, BD cannot forget that he has made them win matches against the top 2 teams in the world, so I hope fans do not write him off as a has been already.
He is still young and will improve.
I hope that I do not annoy some fans here in my defense of Ash, but one has to look at the whole forest and not a few trees.

He should say, we need to focus on your own ability and perform the best we can in all three departments of the game. Would try to entertain everyone as best as we can; If that gives us 1 win so be it. If that gives us the series so be it.

1) With this 1 or 2 wins thingi one will find ah!! he is already thinking negative.

2) Like the reporter is saying in his last sentence, "the little man promised like he always does before any tour."

Ash needs more coaching in how to talk to the media for team's sake.

I hope I am wrong. Thats give a feeling that he will go "same as ususal" licence to kill and looking for jodi laigga jai type "Eid Day". It may excite some fans, but it saddens me because if that is true then, we are not achieving anythyng under Siddon. It may be ok before under Dav as it was giving us much needed life and something to cheer about. But at some point we have to think when we will take one step forward and go with a planned way to move forward.

I also think so. immediate Focus should be, after loosing. Later, on winning when it will be more regular.

It is specially hard to speak after loosing, which he has to do too often. Words after loosing affects more, as every brain is a little abnormal.

After winning, who cares what he says, everything sounds like 'Beethoven's Symphonies' as it is once in a while and doesn't sound repeatative, at the moment. :)

Excerpts from Mohmmad Ashraful’s interview after Mohammedan lost to Abahoni:


[বাংলা]সাংবাদিকঃ ত দ্বিতীয় বারের মত আবাহনীর নিকট পরাজিত হলেন।
আশরাফুলঃ হ্যাঁ, Thanks to Allah, তবে আমরা দিন দিন উন্নতি করছি।

সাংবাদিকঃ উন্নতি? উন্নতির meaning টা চেঞ্জ হয়ে যায়নি তো আবার?
আশরাফুলঃ উন্নতি কখনো কখনো আপনারা দেখতে পান না, কিন্তু আমি পাই। কারণ আমি অধিনায়ক। আর উন্নতি মানে কেবল রান করা, উইকেট নেয়া আর জয় পরাজয় নয়। এই যে ছেলেরা আজকাল পজিটভ মাইন্ডে খেলতে নামে। এটা এক ধরণের পজিটিভ, উন্নতি।

সাংবাদিকঃ মাত্র ১৩৩ রানে অলাউট হয়ে গেলেন, এটাকে কীভাবে ব্যাখ্যা করবেন?
আসশরাফুলঃ এটা আসলে আইপিএল এর প্রভাব। টিভি খুললে, সংবাদপত্র খুললেই চোখে পড়ে আইপিএল। ছেলেরা তাই দিবা নিশি স্বয়নে-স্বপনে আইপিএল এর ম্যাচের কথা চিন্তা করে। লীগের ম্যাচের দিন মাঠে নেমেও দিবাস্বপ্নের ঘোরে ম্যাচকে আইপিএল এর ২০-২০ ম্যাচ ভাবতে শুরু করে। আর এটাও এক ধরণের ঊন্নতি। কারণ এতে আইপিএল এর মত বাংলাদেশেও বিপিএল, মানে বাংলাদেশ প্রিমিয়ার লীগ এর সম্ভাবনা আমরা উজ্জ্বল করে তুলছি।

সাংবাদিকঃ চমৎকার আইডিয়া আধিনায়ক সাহেব, এবার দয়া করে আপনার প্যারফর্ম্যান্স সম্পর্কে দুটি কথা বলুন।
আশরাফুলঃ আসলে আমরা সবাই টিম রুল ফলো করি। টিম রুল ছিল “I score 30, you score 30, we win the match”. সে হিসেবে আপনি দেখেন আমি আর আফতাব দুজনেই ৩০ এর খুব কাছাকাছি রান করেছি। বাকি ব্যাটসম্যানরা টিম রুল ফলো করতে ব্যার্থ হয়েছে।

সাংবাদিকঃ হুম, বুঝলাম, এবার একটু অন্য প্রসঙ্গে আসি। দেশের মানুষ কিন্তু আপনাদের এই দুর্বোধ্য টিম রুল এর দাঁত-ভাঙ্গা ব্যাখ্যা বুঝতে পারে না। আপনাদের ব্যাটে রান না দেখে তারা যে আস্তে আস্তে আপনাদের ব্যাপারে আগ্রহ হারিয়ে ফেলছে তা কি আপনারা মাথায় রাখেন?
আশরাফুলঃ দেখুন সাংবাদিক সাহেব, এটা মাথায় রাখার মত কোন ব্যাপার হল। মানুষের রিজিক হল আল্লাহর হাতে। দেখেন, সুন্দর বনে আল্লাহ বাঘও দিয়েছেন, আবার হরিণও দিয়েছেন। দুটোই এক জায়গায় তার কারণটা কী জানেন?

সাংবাদিকঃ না জানি না।
আশ্রাফুলঃ কারণটা হল, হরিণ হল বাঘের খাদ্য। তেমনিভাবে, আমারা ক্রিকেটাররা হলাম বাঘ। আর ফ্যানদের টাকা হল আমাদের খাবার। সুতরাং ফ্যানরা হল হরিণ। সুন্দরবনে বাঘ হরিণের উপর যতই অত্যাচার করুক না কেন, হরিণ কী কখনো সুন্দরবন ছেড়ে পালাবার চেষ্টা করে? করে না। কারণ পালিয়ে যাবে কই? সেরকম, আমরা যতই খারাপ খেলি না কেন, বাঘদের পাশে ফ্যান মানে হরিণ থাকবেই। আমাদের কখনো ছেড়ে যাবে না। হাহাহা...

সাংবাদিকঃ ফ্যানদের কথা, সরি, মানে হরিণদের ব্যাপারটা না হয় বুঝলাম। কিন্তু আপনার মোনালিসা যদি তার মন থাকে আপনাকে kick মেরে বের করে দেয়, তখন কী করবেন?
আশ্রাফুলঃ খুবই গুরুত্বপুর্ণ এই ব্যাপারটা। তবে সাংবাদিক ভাই, আপনার জানা উচিৎ যে আজকাল মেয়েরা টাকা পেলেই খুশি থাকে। আমি তো চেকের পর চেক তার হাতে তুলে দিচ্ছি। কত রান করলাম, তার চেয়ে কত টাকা কামালাম, সেটাই মোনালিসার কাছে বড়।

সাংবাদিকঃ হা, বাপকা ব্যাটা, সিপাইকা ঘোরা, আর আশরাফুল্কা মোনালিসা। চিন্তার আর কিছু নাই।
আশরাফুলঃ ২০০% ঠিক। আপনার মত গুনী সাংবাদিক আর দশটা থাকলে......

সাংবাদিকঃ বাকী ম্যাচগুলোর পরিকল্পনার কথা কী কিছু বলবেন?
আশরাফুলঃ প্রথমেই মোনালিসাকে টেলিফোন করে জিজ্ঞেস করব যে সে আমার ব্যাট থেকে কত রান চায়। সে বেশি কেয়ার করে না ঠিক, তবে আমি জিজ্ঞেস করি। সে যত রান করতে বলবে, তত রান করতে পারলেই সন্তুষ্ট থাকব।

সাংবাদিকঃ আমাকে সময় দেয়ার জন্য ধন্যবাদ।
আশরাফুলঃ ধন্যবাদ।[/বাংলা]

he should be stripped of captaincy immediately. we might as well not have a captain at all...after all what good is strategy when you have no runs on the board?

let every player focus on batting, bowling, and fielding. the bowler will set the field he wants every over, and the coach can do the batting order.

ash as a captain is not doing shyte.

Great batting by Ash today.

As soon as he saw a half volley outside off stump he plays for a square drive. Unfortunately ball finds only the edge of his bat. That's not his fault. It's the bowlers fault. Why did he ball quick?

rest of the bangladesh specialist batsman: 9 test hundreds from 595 innings --> 1.51%

Who said stats tells you the truth?

This is one more flaw in stats. If he scored 5 hundreds in 93 innings, he must have scored less than 10 in more than 20/30 innings. Is it consistent?

In the case of others, a person may have only one century in his 50 innings, but have scored more than 30/40 in more than 15/20 of those innings. Isn't this better than just 2.5 centuries among those 50 innings and less than 10 in the rest of the matches?

Spot on. Stat is the biggest liar in cricket.

Though, I should add some extra to Furqan's post to make the picture a bit bigger.

In the current BD test team, the only player with a test century is Ash. He also has the highest number of 50+ innings. Also, I believe his avg. might be among the top five.(feel free to clarify)

Not to mention the fact that a 100 is more effective in saving an innings defeat compared to 3 innings of 30.

These things alone state the sorry state of our cricket, that someone like Ash is the best we have to offer, to date.

His average notwithstanding, has he really contributed to his team's wins?

Finally someone brought up the very issue I had once mentioned about the stats. Stats with a lot of not-outs are inflated. And they don't tell you the real picture. To me, a not-out should not simply be taken as no extra match...there should be something to account for the extra innings that was played.

However, lets not insult Hussey or Dhoni by mixing Ash's stats with theirs. They don't belong to the same bucket of talent.

Tigers_eye

In Statistics n = 32+ has a reason. Anytime the sample size is less than 32 the curve may be distorted. We are talking about n = 10 or 11 here. That is why these notout averages don't give he correct pictures.

So Ash's test and ODI average of 23 works against him. His 29 average in first class average works against him. His 32 average in current DPL works against him. His 64 average in the last T20 tourney (only 7 matches 4 notouts with highest score of 37*) works against him.

As you know I am one of the few who gives more value to that stat whether its support my point of view or not. However you raised a good point about the sample size. The sample size need to be big enough to off-set ups and down like n.o. (for example).

To support your point, As we are seeing that as games are added, Ash's average in this tounament is going closer to his FC average (29).

Yesterday he scored another 6 against Mohamedan.

So people who still have the illusion that he is slowly improving need to think twice.

Such a big difference its quite scary. lol

On another point

I guess a players performance and value is judged by a particular fan or spectator based on his view on whats important and whats not.
Some fans base it on stats such as ave, total runs, milestones, etc.
Some judge the players based on how they make them feel.
Although stats are important but as a fan i like to judge a player by how he makes me feel when i watch him.
In the case of ash and his unpredictable batting and bowling it builds up excitement. There are so much highs and lows that he makes you go through while you watch. Sometimes you stand up and go crazy when he plays good and sometimes you feel like killing him. Most of the time your bitting your finger nails. These emotions are valuable and i cherish those moments that he gave.
Personally i'd rather watch a player who is exciting than a player who is conservative.
Thats why i enjoy watching sehwag or yuvraj playing.
Ash is an exciting player but i wish he perfomed better like sehwag or yuvraj.
Maybe thats too much to ask, and if he does get dropped from the team i am sure we will all miss him.

I agree, this is pathetic.

Why didn't the Mumbai indians just send him a shirt in the post and ask him to take a picture of himself wearing it. He could send the pic by email and they'd have a genuine (up-to-date) picture of their new recruit!

Agree that the photoshop job is done poorly, but, its not a first time precedent by any means. I have seen on many times in ESPN when a player changes a team, due to trade or new signing, they usually pull a photo of the player involved from the archive and photoshop the new team jersey on him, until he is actually photographed with the new team colors.

ey shob onek dekha hoise...i've defended him, and while its definitely good that he's scored 4 straight 50's, i want to see 4 straight 50s against top sides. at a decent SR as well.

but it won't matter if he gets out like he did in that ODI against zimbabwe, the most idiotic dismissal i have ever seen in cricket. it seemed to be a strike off the middle of the bat, but right to long on. could not believe my eyes or my heart.

ashraful better start averaging 30 at least against top sides, 35 in tests. and thats the bear minimum, given his "caliber" as mentioned by beamer bhai.

He's been getting better scores more frequently. He won't be scoring back to back fifties all the times in ODIs, but I'm sure he'll have 30+ scores over half the time now. That's all we need. Now of course winning would depend on others preforming too..

At this stage of his career where he has played over 100 matches with an average of just 22, I find it hard to believe that he will suddenly pull his socks up and perform. Yes he has improved himself recently, but that improvement isn't enough to make him a consistent batsman. If ashraful is truly our greatest batsman, he should have an average of atleast 35 and way more hundreds than just 1 against a test team in odi's and should average atleast 40+ in tests.I am not saying that he never had potential, he still does, but its very hard for a cricketer who played intl matches for this long to revolutionize his cricketing mind.

alibangali

It will be difficult for him to improve his career ave dramatically since he has played loads of matches already with a low ave. He will have to ave extremely high from now on to make his career ave look decent. Looking at those stats all the time wont do us good since there wont be much change regardless of how he performs.

What we need to observe from him is his performances for any positive change.

Examples like
1. Batting more responsibly
2. Better shot selection
3, Consistent scoring
4. Not getting out stupidly
5. Better team work with supporting batsmen
6. Controlled running between the wickets
7. Converting starts into big scores
8. Less arrogance and pride
9. Take responsibilty for poor performances
10. MOST importantly lead the team by example.

I think you forgot that you are talking about a player of BD team, who started his career in 2001 and what was the state of th team at that time.

Your assesment would hold good for a player of an established team who has a long history, heritage and culture of international cricket behind them. A player of an established team is not expected to do/face many of these things/situations that a BD player had to over the years.

May be this is not the ideal way of development for others, but it has always happened like this with our players. They have only got better with time. You can't start writing off a player of BD team looking at his previous stats and ignoring his recent performances both at national and international level. Need a different mind set for BD players, as they haven't been through in the ideal environment, their development won't follow ideal path as well.

Regardless of whether a player started in 2001 or 2009 they would always find it tough.
This is because bd players are thrown into the dragon's den. AS BANFAN mentioned


"A player of an established team is not expected to do/face many of these things/situations that a BD player had to over the years."

This statement still holds true to this day. Thats why we should give some slack and time to any BD player that may start poorly but can be a good player.

Ash's IPL performances so far.

Ashraful scored 29 in the last practice match as an opener. He opened the innings with Jayasuriya only in this match. the assistant coach told him to practice more as an opener. He might have to open the innings if Jayasuriya doesnt play, otherwise he will play in the middle order.

This 29 in the last match came off 18 balls.

So far his scores are.. 3, 44*, 29.

He was injured in the 2nd match while fielding. He got hurt on his head. But now he's alright.

LOL but i doubt a proffesional player will play so quickly after another match.

I guess we will find out on saturday but this is a good oppurtunity for mumbai to see if 75k man can cut it in the IPL.

small man does give some big surprises and they know that very well.

nadim SA vs. Aus game is in SA..so its not like Duminy has travel far to get there...so most likely he'll play but i'm still hopeful that Ash will get a chance..

Ash I think is surely playing. Either in opening or in the middle orders. He was also listed as a key player for MI during yesterdays live telecast of IPL Carnival on SS. I am getting positive signals.

Let us all wish Ash the best of luck and hope that he gets a couple of games, but if he does not, this assignment will make him a better player for the coming T20 World cup in England. He will be training under a different coach, will receive valuable tips from other players and his dream has come true, that is -being in the same team with his hero, Sachin Tendulkar. I am sure that he will learn a lot from him.
Ash will emerge a better person and cricketer.

Well Cricinfo thinks JP Duminy will play tomorrow. According to them Jaya and Bravo are certain to play. That leaves only 1 spot for another foreigner and they believe that will go to either Malinga, Fernando or Kyle Mills. So according to them Ash has no chance to play. Remember this is only CricInfo's preview and they have gotten things wrong before.

I personally think Mumbai won't risk Duminy. If he gets injured then they will have wasted $900,000. After Duminy I think Ash will be picked ahead of Napier. So IMO Ash has a good chance of playing tomorrow.

Napier is a really really good twenty20 player

I wouldn't underestimate him getting into the team ahead of ash sadly, but he is more of a bowler who can bat so who knows

Whom are you kidding bro? Smell the roses. Ash will only replace Sanath (if he gets injured) and that is why he was promoted to open in the practice match. Bench is right place for him in these conditions and competition. Sanath can chip in valuable overs as well.

If you think they will not play Duminy because he may get injured then KP, Flintoff, and all other star prizes of the teams shouldn't play because of the probability of getting injured.

Maybe you should read the earlier posts which explains why Duminy is a doubt for tomorrow.

Duminy is playing against Australia in Johannesburg right now. It is a day and night match and South Africa will be batting second. Mumbai play in Cape Town tomorrow and the match starts at 12.30 pm. Duminy is a new player and tomorrow will be his first day with Mumbai. I doubt Mumbai will field him in the season opener without even having a look at him.

As far as I know Pietersen and Flintoff are already with their teams in South Africa.

It has been confirmed on the Mumbai Indians' website that Duminy will be playing tomorrow, which is also his home ground Newlands. (Source (http://www.mumbaiindians.com/MI_News_Detail.aspx?news_id=73))

Thanks for the info but amar "khapey" football khelar experience asey. He is just doing the same in the International level. No way a sane management would leave Duminy out. How much more would one need to see of Duminy?

If MI choose to play a tired horse in a sprint, well, there loss. I wouldn't mind too much if Ash sits out all the matches and bring home the hot cash. I'm more concernd about him getting good practice with a good team for the T20I WC.

He must've been laughing his thing out in his mind that ''Man! if i had the bat in my hands, would've taught them the definition of ''STROKES''.'' Coz look at his smile, that's what it's saying....and see Jaya reading it from Ash's face. ;)
