As Mushfiq is gone for now, Alok will be the candidate for 2005!

don't write off ashraful that easily. not only that ash's quick fire 50 in zimbabwe brought us the first win of the year, his 158* is what broguht back the lost trust of the team. they started to believe in themselve after that innings and the enthuastic team we see there after, in my opinion, is the result of that innings. he has more, a few good innings here and there. of which his innings with rana in asia cup spared us from some humiliation. with all due respect to rafique (he has been awesome) i'd say the man of the year 2004 is ashraful.

Rafique does stand out, but Bangladesh's success has always been the product of a total team effort. Also, Bashar's captaincy, although a little questionnable at times, has given us glimpses of much better professionalism than his predessors.

Bashar is too diffensive captian. He is very calculative. But in cricket you have to forget calculation at times and try something different to get the in form batsman out. I specially will blame him for not being able to get taibu out in most of the matches.

Rafiq is still on top of the list!

I'd rather we didn't talk about this at all. Bangladesh came together as team during the last part of the year and that is the only reason of the team's success. I wouldn't want to label anyone's contribution over another.

Man of the year: TEAM

One century in one full year makes him 'THE MAN'

What couple of century will make him? 'SUPER MAN'?

No doubt why he is spoiled. The Ash fans spoiled him from the begining.

He played few good innings along with 158* which restored the faith in our team which eventually gave us a win against India. He scored a 31 ball 50 against Zim which gave us an ODI win after 4.5 years. He was awarded MOM in that match. His 50 is the fastest 50 by any BD batsmen.

From 1st January to 31 December'2004, he scored 520 runs in 8 tests with an avg. of 40.00. In the same time period, Bashar sored only 298 in 6 innings with avg 27.09; Pilot scored 349 runs in 8 test with avg. of 26.84. Rafique scored 377 runs in 8 innings with an agv of 26.92. Interestingly Rafique got 5 wicket pnly once in the whole 2004. He got total 25 wickts in 2004. Please do not mix up Rfiques performance in 2003 with that of 2004.

Agv. of 40.00 is really high at test level for any batsman and no one even come close to him. Ash was by far the most succesful batsmen who was not only the MOM in ODI (first win after 4.5 years ) but revived the confidence with 158* against India and unified the team.

Clearly 2004 belongs to him. He is the man! No doubt.

Just for a reminder Ashraful's test scores in 2004 (innings by innings) are given below:

Well said! :up:

Yes I agree... tht in 2004, Team-BD was much much more significant than any Individual BD player. It was the team-spirit of the side which caught almost all the attension!

lol...i read ur analysis kanababa. and i fully agree with it too. i think we expect a lot out of ash, thats why we cant see the little things he contributes. he actually didn't do too bad in the odi series against zim. in that series, ash consistently scored in the 30s. perhaps those innings were little and not ashlike, but they're better than a string of under-10 scores. and of course, you pointed out his performance in tests.
