Well, Andrew Wiles had to solve Taniyama-Shimura conjecture in the process of solving FLT. So guess, Ash to break his own record before he attempts to topple 200.

He has the willpower and female following and possess advanced knowledge of the game. There will be blood tomorrow.

One of the problems with Bangladeshi batsmen in general especially in tests is that after a decent innings on a certain day, the very next day they get out early in the morning. I have seen it happen so many times. Secondly, after a century just after a century, they tend to get out. in a Test match, I am sorry to say a century is definitely praiseworthy. All top order batsmen in fact should strive for three figures to say the least. However, a century is not enough in test matches many times. so right after a century you must carry on. you must carry on. you must carry on. We criticize Ashraful more than other players since our expectations are very high from him quite naturally because he has played international cricket for at least 10 years since debut. So, he should definitely use that to his advantage.

Question: What does it feel like to be Mohammad Ashraful?
Answer:

200 beckons Ashraful!

Ash said in an interview that although vox populi demands his head, he will go out their with middle finger up middling every ball for six, four or three. Three , yes - as Ash's hidden weapon is his rotation with apt support provided by someone they go by "The Mominul."

Now, when I met Ashraful in University of California, Irvine library he said in a non-chalatant that "200 beckons Ashraful. Ami ashraful 200 chai."

Thus I asked if he's planning any special. He said that if I shall join him for a latte and iced mocha over brunch perhaps he can explain his daily routine to me.

So without further pechal here is his version of the story:
I usually get up early in the morning around 3am and get stoned. Rumi said this is the best way to contact with spirits and I believe in intergalactic aliens with whom I go into a trance like meditation. Then I do jnana, bhakti, hatha yoga -- all at once. I get into unusual rhythmic postures with japa of self talk mantra and getting into bat like upside down position like da Vinci Code author Dan Brown to generate creative waves in my brain.

https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSue27P83jITTwJ6mNms7IT40LFqMQxq Bdfcb9cYDeC4DnK7Uut

Then I envision every cricket game permutationslike 3 dimensional chess moves in my mind which plays around like a theater of holographic memory. I can recall any stats of mine provided it's only in Sri Lanka.

Then over breakfast I go over with my secretary over my ritual for net practice. I prefer spin bowlers, that too left handed, off spin.

I know everything about ball trajectory but I specialize in that region. I can rip a dissertation in magnus effect and the whirling pattern of air from trail of a ball if not played in vacuum but a smoked environment.

Then I do 100 pushups, 100 situps, 100 uthboshes in a row for 100 minutes and go on to eat post-breakfast of 100 parathas, 100 dalpuris, 100 alupuris, 100 velpuris and 100 chicken biryanis in a flask mixed and matched and poured with a gamla of 100grams of burhani.

Yes.

Then I hit the library. I don't read Wisden but Wisden reads me like a biography. I have supernatural patience and can sustain tremendous pressure to reach that zenith of so called 200 mark.

Yes.

And when asked about his superhuman willpower to overcome any obstacle and difficulty, he talked of the metaphor of the hati and bamon:

Hati is your Mind. Bamon is your diminutive self. Then bamon rides the hati one day and travels to Occident but say he gets into accident and breaks his leg. Then war comes but due to his breaking of leg, he gets hired since he is expendable.

That's it. Bamon lost his life, his soul even after giving everything in his life and rose to achieve great stature and fame. You see people are ungrateful, they don't appreciate the unimaginable heights the bamon takes a man to.

That's how the phrase, bamon hoye chaad dekhar shopno koron na? came from

So what does Ashraful have in store for us? We live [sic intended] the viewer with his own words:


200, 300, 400, 500....your limitation is what you set yourself. If I want 2000 runs I can get that tomorrow. I have the willpower. I can do anything and overcome anything. I have overcome tremendous obstacles in daily life from jumping to elevator heights button to fakibazi in rollercoaster rides of 'you must be this tall to get in'...anyhoo, point is. Your mind is your enemy, Your mind is the elephant. Control your mind, no matter if you are bamon, but you can acheive anything you want naturally, irrationally or transcendentally.

In the words of Schopenhauer: Cricket God Sachin is dead.

i have a feeling that Ashraful is changing for the better... I guess i am being hopelessly unrealistic. Besides, Ashraful is psychologically stornger against SL, I would be less optimistic against other teams.

Hilarious part will be that he will start talking about his second coming after this innings (if successful) :)

I watched both this one and his 73 v ZIM 4 innings ago...very classy and flawless - as perfect as they come in this sport. Ash may have finally moved a notch up. He needs to be rested from ODIs and T20s and just focus on #3 position in Tests. Move Anamul to 4 and push Riyad back down and have Jaharul open with TIK.

[I]Then I envision every cricket game permutations like 3 dimensional chess moves in my mind which plays around like a theater of holographic memory. I can recall any stats of mine provided it's only in Sri Lanka.

After the most recent Isam article, this certainly seems to be true!

"Mohammad Ashraful's straight-faced humour often slips by unnoticed. When asked whether shelving the late cut gave him more discipline in his record-breaking innings, he pointed out the exact delivery when he brought out that shot. There were some laughs, but that was because Ashraful continued in the same tone, with just the hint of a smile.

"There's a shot that always gets me out," Ashraful said. "I don't want to play it, but I tried it off the 167th ball I faced. It just happened. I was lucky the ball didn't touch the bat."

He was correct. Ashraful is one of few players who can recall his innings in great detail, in relation to a specific shot, or a particular bowler who sledged him. He had indeed tried to late cut his 167th delivery." (Source (http://www.espncricinfo.com/sri-lanka-v-bangladesh-2013/content/current/story/624429.html))
