To impress them, I think, he needed to score 44 in 5 balls.

I think its a good score and at a good rate. 119 is good strike rate. its not slow.

44 from 37 balls is fine even it is a t20 match, ash seems to be in good form though and has been pretty consistent recently, lets hope it lasts.

what does it mean by 'retired hurt' and we are not talking about him getting hurt...does it mean, in this practice match he didn't get out and also didn't get hurt but after scoring 44 of 37 balls he just sat down volunteerly along with captain/coach's advice? i hope he didn't get hurt or injured...good batting by ash! may Allah's blessing be with him and may ash be continuously performing like this for a long time in a consistant manner!

44 off 37 is a slow knock for him...but its not bad for T20, a lot of players have SRs just above 100 so its not too shabby. its the blitzkriegs like 40 from 20 by the late middle order that takes teams to totals of 160 or more. otherwise its a mammoth innings from a top order.

if he keeps it up, he will get a spot in XI for a few games.

often players "retire hurt" in practice matches without being hurt just so other players can get a hit, i'm sure it was either the coach/captain's decision or they asked him to do it. in regards to his knock of 44 off 37, not every inning's has to be with a 200 strike rate, 44 from 37 is still a fine contribution at any stage of a t20 match though you'd hope for a quicker innings if coming to the crease later in the innings but since he retired i'm guessing there were still a few overs left (and even if there wasn't it' would still have been considered a decent innings).

Hey, first match on a bouncy SA pitch after a long domestic season and that is also over a 100SR with a respectable total, i think its a very good outing for Ash.

He definitely made his case heard. He is being retired hurt by the management, i think they have seen enough of him (for a practise match) to be satisfied and called him to retire so that they can check out the next guy.

Seems like Ash carried his good form from DPL to SA.
Good on ya.

Completely agreed and the fact that he was not out, means he had the scope of improving upon both the Runs & RR. Congrats Ash !!

Any way, The Coach / Captain could have allowed him to complete the Half century :)

Its pretty good really.....44 from 37 is not great but surely impressive.
But why retired hurt? Did he retired to let others practice or he was hurt? any confirmation on that?

well considering the fact that Duminy will probably not play the first game due to his game with Australia on the 17th, Ashrafuls 44 might just be enough to secure a place in the first team, atleast for the first game anyways :)

I hope that news is wrong and he is not actually injured.
btw, 119 is par SR for T-20 like 40 avg for test match batting ! but 44 is definitely more than par score individually !
so he is definitely playing well !

problem with the VI has been that he can't score consistently regardless of the opposition. he has scored more big innings in real matches against real teams than anyone else from BD. the 158* against india, his 4 other tons against SL, the 100 at cardiff, 87 and 73 against SA, 60* against NZ all happened against G8 sides in official matches. what makes him an idiot is that he can't keep it up. even a decent 35 Test average would suffice to avoid the blushes. but maybe Sohel was right about that magical age in the mid to late twenties where productivity starts meeting potential.

Ashraful scored 29 in the next 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.

Below is the match report in which Ash scored 44*, it was uploaded today on the Mumbai Indians' website (http://www.mumbaiindians.com/MI_News_Detail.aspx?news_id=70).

Mumbai Indians begin their march to IPL glory

Pietermaritzburg is the historic place where the young attorney Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was thrown out of the train at the station for his skin color. The attorney went on to become the Mahatma whose Satyagraha movement was instrumental in India gaining independence in 1947.


Pietermaritzburg is also where the Mumbai Indians began their long march towards IPL glory. They began their journey with a practice match against an Inland XI, which was formed of local South African cricketers and several Mumbai Indians players ‘loaned’ to the Inland XI for the match. The players loaned were Luke Ronchi, Lasith Malinga, Graham Napier, Ryan McLaren and Dilhara Fernando.


Malinga drew first blood, and then second, by sending back batsmen Ajinkya Rahane and Saurabh Tiwary in quick succession. He got them with short balls, which they tried to fend unsuccessfully. Sanath Jayasuriya then announced his intent, as he slammed a 38-ball 57, which included six 4s and three 6s. With Mohammad Ashraful, Jayasuriya added 81 runs in just over nine overs before being caught behind by Luke Ronchi.


Ashraful accumulated 44 off 37 balls, even as first Jayasuriya and then Dwayne Bravo hit half centuries at the other end. Bravo and Ashraful built an 82-run partnership before retiring to let the other batsmen get some much needed match practice. Abhishek Nayar and Pinal Shah remained unbeaten on 6 off 6 and 5 off 3 respectively, as the Mumbai Indians team posted 176/3 on the board.


Inland XI started strongly as Ronchi raced off to 39 from 20 balls. But regular wickets fell after the first one fell, at 49 in just the fifth over. Barring brief resistance from Ryan McLaren for the 5th wicket, there never was any fight from the Inland XI. Mclaren made 21 and Jaydev Shah made 9 before both were run out. Inland XI eventually made 159/9 in their 20 overs, as Mumbai Indians cruised to a 17-run victory.


The bowling was unrelenting, the fielding sharp and the energy vibrant. Rohan Raje took three wickets and a catch, Bravo took two wickets, a catch and effected a run out, while Saurabh Tiwary effected two run outs to bring a smile to the face of fielding coach Jonty Rhodes who hails from Pietermaritzburg.


Mumbai Indians won this curtain raiser to the IPL. The prelude looks good and hopefully the symphony at the main opera on the 18th against the Chennai Super kings will be evident!

http://www.prothom-alo.com/mcat.news.details.php?nid=MTUwODc3&mid=OA==Ha ... I was thinking they'd try to make him an opener. If you recall in PC's other post I mentioned that since Jaya was an opener and Tendu was the other opener, they'd have to figure out some options on that front.

Murad
April 16, 2009, 01:20 PM
I'm sure Jaya will play all the matches. Even though Ash doing well in the warm-up matches, he will still find it difficult to get in the main eleven. Some of hte players in that team are reallly over-hyped.

I wonder why they bought Luke Ronchi for? Don't they have any good wicket keepers in India? He is not a good batsman.

Ash was playing a supporting role for Jaya and then Brave. This explains his low SR.

From the Match Report the International players made contrbutions

Ash
Malinga
Bravo
Sanath
Ronchi

I don't like this 7 + 4 rule, only benifits India in discovering better players.

Kolkota had Mendis last year and they didn't even know who he was.

Kolkota had Mendis last year and they didn't even know who he was.

Actually Kolkata knew exactly of what Mendis was capable of. Its just that we as viewers of international cricket didnt know about Mendis until recently, after he arrived in the international arena

Also previously someone was talking about Dravid being wicketkeeper - Bangalore Royal Challengers have Mark Boucher, so they wouldnt really need Dravid to wicket-keep. A batsman of his quality would make it to the line-up anyways, unless he is not in form.

It will be difficult to fit Ashraful in this team. However, I dont think he will play the first game because Jaysuriya is fit, and so is Bravo. That 3rd spot would be probably go to Graham Napier, because he is only available for the first few matches. Considering the fact that Duminy might not be available for the first match due to international duty with South Africa, that 4th spot will go to a specialist bowler in either Mill/Malinga/Fernando.

However, I do think that if either Bravo, Duminy or Jayasuriya underperform, Ashraful should get a chance to play in a few matches. Who knows, if he plays well then he may be able to secure a place in the team :)

ronchi is horrible with the gloves and decent with the bat but was terribly out of form this aus domestic season, despite his lack of form he's an inconsistent batsman in general but he does have potential with the bat.

Jayashuriya, Luke Ronchi, and one of Maling/Fernando is confirmed. Ronchi scored a 50 and he is hte only wicketkeeper.

Last place is to take. So many canditates. Pollock will not play in this season. Mumba's fast bowling is very weak. If they choose 2 fast bowlers then Ash is out. I don't know if they have any local fast bowlers in their team.

According to shamokal, ash might play the first game as the coach is happy with his performance and told him he might open with Jayasuriya.
mash might play be in the first match as well. His team management told him so.
