If one is to believe in KUFA, then Motin has become the embodiment of it. He was emblematic of our crappiness as a cohesive batting unit and ridiculous RBW. The basic and serious problems with our team and team selection were exposed through this humiliation because Moyna (plus random other player of the day) didn't pull this off.

Teshta Boy was clearly unfit and heavy on the ball.

I agree. And I have nothing against them. It's not personal it is business. You cannot let your heart dictate decisions. The choice of bringing back Mash was premature - driven only by the impending WC. Ash's presence is driven by "jodi laigga jae". Let's face it - when will we ever learn? Sports is a serious business and we should make hard-nosed business decisions. Give Ash and Mash all the garlands they deserve. Ash for the days he reaches sublime perfection and the wins he has given us. We do remember Australia. GIve thanks to Mash for all service he has provided for us. We do remember the win against India.

Time to move on though. We have better players who cannot make it to the the team because we are so driven by emotions.

I am keen to hear how Ash justifies his failure this time. Usually when he comes back he says things like he changed his batting style in the past listening to other people which affected his batting and 'this' time he is going to play his natural game which has brought him recent success - this is one player who sure knows his own game!

Least he didnt waste many balls like mahmudullah!

i think for the best to happen ,these guys need to be dropped,i'm thinking that just because ash led the team to asian games gold,does'nt even mean that he's a automatic in the team,have him in the squad and drop him,as for mash,i beg of him to get injured or something,with him being bangladesh had created history twice,my guess replace these two with the new guy that stayed cool aganst pressure and won the game for them in asia games final,and for mash replace him with rubel,who is a much better bowler than mash is at the moment.period

If he wants to become a power hitter and fight for a #7 position thats one thing.

But at this point, he has no business being in the team as a bowler. Shafiul, Rubel and Nazmul should all be picked before him.

Couldn't agree more.

I am not trying to be a fortune teller here. But believe it or not, I exactly new the sequence of events today.

Mash will come to bowl with his terrible medium pace with an intent, more of saving himself than taking wickets. In the process, will remain wicket less and expensive. Eventually Shakib will take him out and will not use him any more.:(

Ash will come to bat. Hit a 4. Be instrumental in running himself or his partner out. Then try to guide the very next ball or couple of others to the third man region, in the process getting clean bowled. Then hit himself with the bat. Curse his luck, heavens and everything around him. Make a long walk back to the pavilion making some weird facial expressions.:hairpull:

But ultimately, these two would play for themselves. Break the total harmony and spirit of the team. Which exactly what has happened today.

Really failed to understand the reason for inclusion of these two in the team. The explanation from selectors on inclusion of Ash and Mash appeared absolutely vague.

There is no scope of driven by emotions any more. Reputation is no more a criteria but performance is. Lot of talents are on the queue. It is time to clean the weeds and harvest new crops.

Mohammad Ashraful still looks odds on to walk out to bat on Friday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium since he is the only name the decision-makers trust and try for all their money's worth.

If news from within the Bangladesh team's think-tank is to be believed, Ashraful has been given a three-match licence to book his place for the World Cup. After his failure against Zimbabwe yesterday, he has certainly struck out in the first attempt; not quite the fearless swing-and-miss of a baseball hitter, but the thoughtless poke of a man too comfortable with his place amongst the Tigers.

So why does Ashraful feel so unafraid to attempt a half-hearted late-cut to an off-spinner who has dismissed him three times in the past? He does it because in the minds of some in the national team's management he remains an unrealised fantasy.

"He is just one innings away" is an old favourite of his backers who inevitably stick the "gifted" tag to the man who averages a meagre 23.33 in ODIs for the last ten years.

The last five innings, before Wednesday's debacle, saw him score 31, 20, 9, 14 and 13 and his 2010 ODI averages now stand at 18.33. He was brought back into the national fold for the Zimbabwe series on the back of some big scores in the National Cricket League. Such a performance, a total of 470 domestic runs, can only be enough for a youngster to earn a place in the Academy side but not for Ashraful, not for his talent, inconsistency and especially not due to his lack of hunger.

His return, unlike that of Tamim Iqbal, not only disturbed the winning combination that completed the 4-0 whitewash of New Zealand but also removed one of the better fielders in the side. Essentially, Ashraful returned with less material than a washed-up stand-up comedian fighting for his space in the spotlight, replacing the one who could give you more laughs.

On Wednesday, the comedy that has become Ashraful's international career unfurled once more and it was quite a sight when Ray Price, animated as ever and a master of the needle, took aim at the man supposedly under fire.

The first ball was well swept, ran away for four but it didn't stop Price or the Zimbabweans sensing that they were in for the kill. The next ball Ashraful faced, he tried to steal a single, only to run Junaed Siddiqui out.

After seeing off two deliveries from Price, the man who has dismissed him on six previous occasions, Ashraful played three more before Prosper Utseya's floated off-spin got him out.

It was just an attempted late-cut, less a shot than a prod, and it left the Tigers at 89 for four.

The brief innings irked many observers who compared his inclusion to the axe that fell on Shahriar Nafees. The left-hander was slowly getting reacquainted to international cricket before his sudden omission, a clear paradox to Ashraful's sudden rise.

If Bangladesh cricket claims to be getting out of the mindset of picking potential talents, then Ashraful's was a bad example. In no uncertain terms, he is a once-in-a-generation batsman, but as the curtailed careers of Al Shahriar Rokon, Alok Kapali and Aftab Ahmed will tell you, talent only takes you so far.

Ashraful has the eleventh highest batting average among Bangladeshi batsmen in one-day cricket and although he has averaged more than 25 in four calendar years (2005 to 2008) he has never yet cracked 30.

He could still turn his 18.33 average in 2010 into something significant but waiting for that single innings (or in other words a string of fantastic shots) will do more harm than help to Bangladesh cricket.

I agree, I felt that Mashrafe did bowl a decent line and length and got the ball to seam aswell but he was just bowling too slow (125-126km/h). Coming from injury that is understandable.. With his hitting abilities, Bangladesh will be better off if he can gain back full fitness and form by WC. Shafiul and Rubel are fine bowlers but lack in the batting department.

Or, if he really wants to stay in the team, he needs to re-think his career and approach to his game. His opening spell is no longer decent. Its avg. Yet, he is opening the bowling and not even managing more than five overs. He needs to think what he can do well to contribute. Maybe, he needs to shorten his run-up and become a Sujon type slow medium pacer, who can be used in middle overs for seaming condition pitches overseas or at home. Become a line and length contain bowler, and improve his batting by miles, so he can be relied upon in low middle order for some quick runs ( he has the power ). And, yes, he will have to fight to be in the team as a utility type all rounder who will be in and out of the team, depending on the pitch and weather. In other words, retool and rethink. Its sad that injuries derailed him.

'I need time to get my rhythm back' - Mortaza

Mashrafe Mortaza, the Bangladesh allrounder, has reacted to criticism about his performance in the first two ODIs against Zimbabwe by calling for more match practice following his return to the national team from injury. Mortaza is yet to take a wicket in the series, and has bowled nine overs for 53 in two games that have been dominated by spinners.

"True, it's not ideal conditions for pace bowlers, but still we could not bowl on the right areas," Mortaza told reporters in Dhaka on the eve of the third ODI. "Actually our bowling is totally spin oriented in the series as the Zimbabwean batsmen have a weakness against the slower bowlers.

"I hardly got any chance to play in the last 17 months due to injuries one after another, so I need some time to get my rhythm back and I believe things will get better only if I keep playing matches. I'm very confident about my comeback."

Mortaza said the over reliance on spinners could not continue for long. "I also believe that the scenario will be totally different when we play against the big teams because you can't depend only on the spinners against them."

Mortaza was out of action for a while due to an ankle injury that ruled him out of the series against New Zealand, which Bangladesh won 4-0. Jamie Siddons, the Bangladesh coach, admitted Mortaza had been below-par on his comeback. "He was rusty and looked a bit down. He could not bowl according to his capability and I think he needs some more matches. He will come back."

Ian Pont, the Bangladesh bowling coach, was confident about Mortaza as well. "In the nets, everything looks good; but in matches, it's not so. But it's always difficult [making a comeback], because as a fast bowler you lose your rhythm and timing. Sometimes you lose a bit of confidence, and you can have two thousand nets, but that does not always mean that you will do well in the middle.

"I think Mash will be disappointed with himself. I think he's admitted that he is a bit disappointed. But he will come back strong, he's been a great bowler for Bangladesh, and he has a lot of talent, he's very clever, and he's one of our better fast bowlers."

The five-match series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe is currently tied 1-1.

If Ash and Mash gets into the XI without backing it up with substantial performance , they will only harm themselves in the long run. Current performance parameter must be the sole issue while considering one's inclusion in the final XI.It is true that both have a very strong lobbying group including some third rate journos which can extend them helping hands in their inclusion. However, that may not be enough this time with Shakib as the captain. Rumour is in the air that Shakib now has the backing of the PM which is why even Lotus has to back Shakib. The game is on.

I take back what I said about Mash. He is looking truly promising with todays match practice. Good seaming wicket, bounce, nippy pace as well as good movement in todays cool overcast conditions. Mash is getting there. Wonderful to see. :)

If he wants to become a power hitter and fight for a #7 position thats one thing.

But at this point, he has no business being in the team as a bowler. Shafiul, Rubel and Nazmul should all be picked before him.

hope the 3rd odi of this series answerd back at your comment there...

nazmul over mortaza? Never! but it was abit unfair on rubel! he did well against nz in the 5th odi of that series. so he deserved a spot in the team.

Mortaza offers BD more with the bat than shafiul, rubel and nazmul. Mortaza for me is the BD version of flintoff! he needs time, just returned from an injury! once he regains his selfbelief, confidence back then watch he will be back to his best!

"BD's 'version' of flintoff, 'for me'." thats in my opinion. Didnt say mortaza is exactly BD'S flintoff, didnt mean mortaza is exactly like flintoff, for BD, like how flintoff was for england.

Mash is a slogger and is very good at it. He's more like BD version Harbhajan with the bat. Flintoff is a genuine allrounder & matchwinner like Shakib. Sorry but I find it insulting to compare Mash with Flintoff just because he can swing the bat.

Its in my own opinion (and it counts for nothing) about mortaza being the BD version of Flintoff (thats in ODI ofcause).

Mortaza is a right-arm pace bowler, so was flintoff. Mash is the better bowler than freddy Flintoff in ODIs. Check cricinfo stats on their ODI bowlings. Im refering this BD version thing to in ODIs only.

Mortaza is big, like flintoff. He can hit them big like flintoff did, can/has play/played quick-fire ininings down the order like flintoff did. Freddy is the better ODI batsmen than Mortaza though but Mortaza is the better bowler in ODIs than flintoff, in general in ODIs.

There is quite abit similarties between them there, to say Mortaza is the BD version of Flintoff. In my humble opinion (ofcause)

(Sir.) Jadeja is a SLA bowler, so is Shakib. He is lean so is Shakib. Both averages 35+ in the ODIs. So I think it's fair to say that Jadeja is our Shakib in my humble opinion.

PS: Mashrafe isn't half the bowler flintoff was, be it tests or ODIs.

No Ash no fun! Without him we BC members start fighting each other on some random non-cricketing issues.
Bring back Ash. Bring back his single digit scores which we can talk on, bring back his stupidity on which we can laugh on. Ash is the biggest superstar BD ever made. The much attentions he gets by doing nothing Shakib and co not ever gonna get half of it by doing everything.
