And why should people stop blaming Ashraful? He is the main reason that we lost. He is retarded and at the very least he should be stripped of the captaincy of the team. He does not even have the capability to acknowledge the fact that he did not perform well in the series. By his comments he is tarnishing the image of our team. He has made us a laughing stock.

I don't really find these comments from Ashraful surprising. Apparently to him 'batting well' is not getting a big score but just hitting the ball with the middle of the bat. That's why he is quite happy with these 20-30's. No surprise that he thinks "we played competitive cricket in pakistan". When you set your sights so low, you are bound to be happy with anything.

Someone (Siddons or may be another Jamal) needs to explain to him that you need to develop the habit of building an innings: you can't just fudge it. And that habit grows when you make an effort to play long innings in domestic cricket, however crap its standard may be.

bro u got a point here Ash was always an inconsistant player and now that he has the power he's even worse. he keeps saying "my batting is improving ever since i became a captain but how come all of us dnt feel that way? Are we blind? Are we that dumb that we dont know about cricket? or is it Ashraful- who predicts that his batting improved but actually in real life he is still the same gadha ashraful??

I was at a friend's place and catched a bit of NTV news.

This is what Ashraful said (with a lot of difficulty in even speaking Bangla): "I'm batting okay, I don't see a problem with it...I'm just probably not being lucky these days...luck is very important for cricket."

After hearing him say that, I really think it was the worst decision in the history of BD cricket to make him a captain. Sorry to say, I don't think we'll make even 5% improvement under Ashraful's captaincy. Mark my words.

If a captain doesn't know how to point out the mistakes by him and his team, there can never be improvement.

When Ash was made captain, some of us had reservation from the get go. But people said he will be better than bashar, he has great cricket mind, it will help him to settle down as a player also, we don't have any other options left, etc, etc. Atlast some people are comming to realization that after all that was not a good decision.

Ash was always kind of indecipline player. He never showed he can adjust to game situation, he never showed that he is leading by example game-in and game-out, his communication skill was suspect from the begining. At that time he was struggling with his batting and captaincy definitety increased the pressure. He was never groomed by the management to be a captain ( like they did/doing with SN, Rahim, Sakib, etc), he never shown that he is a good student/learner . There was a time when Dav was so disgusted with him, not following his instruction, he tried to drop him , but due to outside pressure he was brought back too soon into the team, Dav's hands were tied, and Dav pretty much ignored Ash and stopped talking with him as a protest. So what management did next? Made him a Captain as if all problem will be solved by miracle. And public started praising magagment's decision.

So the end result? We are here ( as some of us expected long time ago) whether we like it or not. Even though I have no expectation out of Ash as a captain, I am not suggesting his resignation yet, he deserve a little bit more time before he is dropped as a captain. Whether he should be dropped as a batsman or not that's a different question.

Next time they choose a captain I want them to choose the right one and stick with him. Not a Mashrafee here, a Razzak there, a SN in between... next time they choose I want to make sure they choose someone they a already grooming like: Sakib, Rahim, or even SN and stay with him for a while. But to do that, they need to make sure that as a player he is sure shot in the team... and none of them are a sure shot yet in the team except for Sakib may be.

My personal choice of future captain is of-course Sakib. But I am willing to wait a little bit.

Precisely...though some of us here in banglacricket have let our personal success in the States give us a different view. We forget, because of the great system here in the U.S., almost anybody can do well with a little effort. But succeeding in Bangladesh...now that has merits, especially if you are a Cricket player with the national team.

The question now is...where do we go from here. We just cannot jettison him. The only option is to keep Bashar at the helm for 2 more years. His batting is no worse than others. Maybe he can bring a level of calmness with his seniority? And yes, spank him - Ashraful (not by you, but the coach..or maybe Javed Omar's wife).

SS
April 22, 2008, 09:49 AM
He didn't tell a lie...
He is batting OK - Ashraful gives winning innings two times a year.
He is following team rules - First three batsmen have license to slog and he consider himself the top batsman (not order wise). On top of it, he is captain he guides and decides what team should do in situations.
He played competitative cricket - He played in Rainhill, He played in national league...standard of those cricket and Pak bowling...give it a break....Pak pacers are natural born and they become bond, lee, wasim and waqar when they play against BD...Pak new spinners are also best they become kadir, saqlain, mustaq in their debuts by taking three wickets in an over...
so he played competitive opponents who play better cricket than him and his team.

Once again, Shakib shows his maturity.

Shakib Al Hasan, who scored a hundred in the fourth ODI, offered a more realistic view. "The team's morale is down after defeats one after another against the top sides," he admitted. "[This] was the main reason behind our bad performance and we have to get out from this situation."

watch out for newspaper heading " Siddons is not talking with Ashraful". I was actually wondering why DW was not talking with his most talented prodigy when he is down. Now I understand. Because that was the only treatment left behind. Being an australian he did not knew about corporal punishment that our parents knew. But Ashraful know only[বাংলা]বেতের বাডী[/বাংলা]. Siddons would also find out soon. actually in batting with the exception of SN and Asraful I saw sign of change. Tamim proved he is a quick learner; Sakib improved his foot movement; Aftab is changing his style (I think and hope this is a temporary glitch; just like calibration period of a machine/model). But nothing to prove me that SN and Ash is improving. They are playing in the same way. SN no foot movement; playing away from body; Ashraful either sink or swim shot; nothing in between. One glorious cover drive followed by the ugliest of pull.
JS as mentor has the responsibility his protage. he is doing. But how long he would take I am waiting to see. My bet till SA tour.

If you guys feel you guys can play cricket then go and try to play against Pakistan and get completely owned. You guys are so immature man it's not even funny. What is Ashraful going to say? O ya i sucked so bad I shouldn't play anymore. no. That is the reason why I can't get along with some Bengalis. Too negative and insulting people.

You must be a very young person or simply emotional. Whether he is 23 or 13 does not matter. He is the skipper of a test team and he is playing for 6-7 years at test level. What he is talking about is rubbish. Maybe people should not have called him 'retarded'. He does not have to say that he 'sucked up', but he should not even say 'I am playing OK'. That lacks common sense. That is immature. You will average under 20 in a series and you will say I am batting OK? What is this village cricket? It beats me. I have nothing against Ashraful, but he should let his bat do the talking and shut up till then.

The problem however is that we do not have much better option at this time.

i refuse to think ash is that stupid...i agree he isn't the smartest cookie around - although the cerebral nature in which he attacks murali is einsteinian in nature.

i too am appalled at this "i'm batting OK" comments. however one has only to look at his expression immediately after dismissal to know he isn't pleased with himself. i'd wager that he suffers from a mental disorder which actually affects 99% of people. its called Infallibility Syndrome or GW Bush Disease. its a condition where a person can tell you that they are either infallible, or fallible yet cannot recall a single mistake they've ever made in their life.
