View Full Version : Ashraful handed top-level central contract

Mohammad Ashraful has been awarded a top-level central contract despite not playing in Bangladesh's recent historic 4-0 one-day series victory against New Zealand. He is one of six players handed an A+ deal with the board and is among 16 contracts handed out across four levels along with two rookie players.

Ashraful has been in and out of the Bangladesh squad throughout the year, which began with him missing the home series against England in March before being recalled for the return contest during May and June where he played both Tests at Lord's at Old Trafford. Following a poor Asia Cup in Sri Lanka he was then dumped again only to be recalled as injury cover during the one-dayers in England.

However, patience again ran out for the visit of New Zealand last month where Bangladesh secured their first series victory against major opposition but Ashraful, who averages a disappointing 23.45 after 163 ODIs, is clearly still close to the selectors' thoughts with four months to go until the World Cup.

The other players handed top contracts are unsurprising with Tamim Iqbal, who missed the New Zealand series with a wrist injury, named alongside captain Mashrafe Mortaza, Shakib Al Hasan, Abdur Razzaq and Mushfiqur Rahim.

The A-band of deals on the level below include Junaid Siddique, who has been a solid presence at No. 3 during the year after hitting his maiden Test century against England in Chittagong, along with allrounder Mahmudullah and fast bowler Shahadat Hossain.

Raqibul Hasan, the middle-order batsman, who angrily announced his retirement during England's tour to Bangladesh after being omitted from the squad before reversing his decision, has been given a C-grade contract. Enamul Haque, the left-arm spinner, and middle-order batsman Mehrab Hossain were the two players not to have their contracts renewed from the previous batch.

Bangladesh's next assignment will be hosting Zimbabwe for a one-day series some time before Christmas and that is another contest they will be expected to win following the impressive displays against New Zealand.

Grade A+: Masrafe Bin Mortaza, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Ashraful, Abdur Razzak, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal

Grade A: Shahadat Hossain, Junaid Siddique, Mahmudullah

Grade B: Syed Rasel, Raqibul Hasan, Nazmul Hossain, Naeem Islam, Imrul Kayes, Rubel Hossain

Grade C: Shafiul Islam

Rookie Grade: Jahurul Islam, Mohammad Sohrawordi

I think the grading is based on number of years of service, number of matches played and performance. I think Shahadat has played more games than Shafiul, but Shafiul deserves to be in B for sure.

Ar Ash er kotha....According to BCB, he is too big of a player to come out of A+ group.

Yeah I posted in the other thread that it seems that experience counts more than recent performance towards deciding the contracts. This would explain why players like Ashraful, Shahadat and even Razzak are on a too high level, whilst others like Shafiul seem to be on a too low level. I guess if Shafiul performs well till the next time they decide the contracts, then he will probably be promoted a couple of levels.

Our Prime Minister likes Ashraful, she asked Loitta already - whatz up with Ash. Ashraful is in for ZIM series for sure. And if he can perform, BD will continue to rock coz when Ashraful plays--- everyone fades away (even if it is twice a year)

I demand to put Ashraful in A++ grade. He is the senior most player. He should also be awarded as the batting coach come captain position. He is a born winner! Trump Card! Bradman er bap, Sachin er chacha. He is also a world class leggy! He can assist the bowlers also as well as the filding. So no doubt Ash deserves to be the head of BCB too. (Arekta dream hoilo he should be appointed as Cricket Minister!) Emon mohan player juge juge ashe na! Shohosro bosore ekta ashe!

Sir Ashraful er kotha ar bollam na...

Shafiul just started playing international cricket and you want him in A grade? There are some points in grading.

incredible
November 1, 2010, 11:21 AM
Seems like. 1 point if you play ODI and 2 points if you play a test match...

then they accumulate, I am not sure over what time period ....

0-30 points = Grade C > 53 Thousand Tk / Month
31-70 points = Grade B > 71 Thousand TK / Month
71-100 points = Grade A > 90 Thou Tk / Month
100+ points = Grade A + > 1 Lakh 8 Hajar Tk / Month

I guess overall, career. the only way it makes sense Ashrafool having a top contract. If they have to keep him in the contract, they have to give him A + or nothing.

but i belive contracts should be based on performance..

Actually from this i think they earn quite alot. Im in New Zealand, and here the players earn between 100-150 thousand/year. I think someone said that A+ contract will give you 1 lakh/month. Thats alot of money for a bangladeshi. Some of my friends in bangladesh who are engineers don't even get paid 60,000/ month. But they don't take bribes and steal...

When Shahadat is almost loosing his spot in any form of the game to new comers, he is still in grade A? And Shafiul in grade C? It's prbably the stupid rule of how many matches a current player has played. Look at our A+ grade- except Shakib and Tamim, everyone's position is shaky in grade A+.

Give him big money, keep him (and his fans) happy...I am in sync with that stratagy... as long as he doesn't sneak back again (into the team) without paying his dues.

Keep that guy happy in the sideline... let him eat some more fried fish and do some ads... may be some natoks... some songs... whatever... keep him busy while team continue to win without him....

I see so many wrongs with this grade contract. Ash should not be given A+, even an A is to much for him. Imrul and Saiful deserved to be A+ with their performance! Imrul in one of the top 5 highest run maker for the year and he is sitting at grade B for what reason. And more importantly is that SAiful is really doing good with his bowling and deserved atleast an A grade! ... this is just messed up to the max

i respect ur argument.........but they r not engineers or ordinary professionals..,..they r sportsman that compete at world stage...and we expect them to be at that level........and blame goes to bcb for failling to merchendise the product properly albeit for incompetency or corruption (take the nimbus example)

beyadobi maaf koriyen imam shaheb but in today's world anyone can be an engineer but no one can be Ashraful. ashraful has been the most consistent batman in the bangladesh team, even after scoring a match winning 60 against Pakistan, the match winner gets dropped while faltu players like Naaem and Riyadh gets their spot. Ashraful deserves to be paid more than Tamim and Shakib. :outbad:

Ashraful's contribution to Bangladesh Cricket is enormous, so he deserved to be on the top. Bad form is not permanent (hopefully) and he at least has another 10 years of cricket ahead of him.

Ya looks pretty much like this is based on experience rather than performance. Rakibul getting a B whereas Shafiul getting a C is just stupid (I am taking it like a grading system in primary school).

Ok lets say we take it like a grading system in the primary school. Teacher's hand out grades based on how the student did in that academic year. If we look at it like that Ashraful gets an F from me for this years performance.

BCB is bogus. They need to hand out contract based on performance not based on experience. Eto experience thakar porew jodi matcher por match e murgir din pare taile experience diya ki hobe. If you ask me the only people who deserve to be paid the most is Shakib and Tamim. I don't know how Mushy made that list, shonar chand koy ta catch miss korse aie bochor. And Razzak? Are you kidding me. Beta bideshe giya je ball er por ball leg stump bowling kore ar mair khai. And don't even get me started on Rajib?

Ashraful lives and breathes cricket. Whether or not he deserves a high-level contract right now, he is going to be a part of the future BD cricket team (whether you like it or not). He's not one of those players who has a back-up plan if cricket doesn't work out. It HAS to work out for him!! Players like this, you treat carefully.

Let's face it. He's getting himself out these days pointing to CONFIDENCE as the overriding factor behind his failures. Demoting him to a lower salary grade would be harmful for his confidence if anything.

i think this is proof positive that the blame lies with the BCB more than Ashraful himself. and i know you've stated this before.

when he was struggling - and i'm talking about 2003, 2004 not recently - they kept shuffling him around the order and giving him ever changing instructions in the hopes that he would come good. in fact, you can't blame BCB either. ashraful was the sole match winner in an era full of Javed Omar Belims and Habibul Bashar Brainless. who would we replace him with? Rokon? Tushar?

the real culprit is fate itself. we didn't deserve test status, and ultimately we didn't have the infrastructure or guidance itself to manage the talents we had. aftab failed due to his own laziness and idiocy, a level of stupidity which makes Bashar look like a probable candidate for a Nobel prize in physics. alok failed due to same reasons as ashraful, he was just an exagerrated case.

yes, ladies and gents, the price for our 4-0 win over NZ, the price for us finally beginning to mark our arrival to the Elite of the cricketing fraternity is the sacrifice of some talent. it was in the sacrificing of the talents of ashraful and alok. ashraful and alok were the coins we paid to ride on the Royal Bengal Express. they were the cost of gaining a Shakib and a Tamim.

could it have been a better deal? surely. but it wasn't such a bad transaction after all.

like if we dont give him one,then its not like pollard or bravo that he will go and play anywhere else..and not for bd..

we can call ash when he performs and then after he shows consistency he can earn his contract..

if we give ash a contract there is no place other then the A+ category cos he played so many match

so y r we giving him a contract..let him earn one with performance

Payscale must replect performance. Players must get paid on runs or wickets earned. Players then realize in order to get paid they must perform. They will be more responsible and more productive that way. Thats a win-win situation.

Paying a guy 1.25 Lakh per month, who does not even in the playing 11 is utter rubbish. Why dont you just pay that money to the under 17 players? Thats 10,000 Taka permonth per head. At least they are playing for the national U17 team.
