View Full Version : Ash needs a break?

January 26, 2005, 01:35 PM
It's very unfortunate to watch such a talent stay un-guided like this.

While watching one bad performance after another...I feel more sympathy for Ashraful than anger. Team's expectation from him is probably higher than from any other player.. but he is surely too young to handle that stress of expectation.
He is only trying too hard to live upto his reputation.. and getting himself in more and more trouble. Someone just needs guide him in a very sensible way.. and bring him out of this 'Curse of Expectation' bad-patch.

Maybe he should be given a break after the ZIM series... just to help him out of this blackhole.. which may even harm his self-belief for good!!

We really expect a lot from him. We forget that he is still a kid and needs more time to become mature enough to handle all the expectations. A little break won't hurt. We will have a break soon. But look whats ahed of us? England and Australia in english condition. It might be tough for the entire team. I hope they win the next matches with ZIM.

Ash can be tried in the opening for the next game and should be asked to play his natural game.

He did try to play his natural game in 3rd ODI. May be it is time for us (fans and BCB) to re-assess our expectation from him. He will become a good batsman when he comes to understand his limitations and how to strengthen his toughness in cricket.
