On the other hand, I do not know how anybody can justify a place for Ash. I think we should make Ash a selector and, probably, his conscience wil prevent him selecting himself.
Ian Pont, Bangladesh's most successful bowling coach, was at the BC chat the whole time of the game, and i will quote him: "Alok is getting away with some rubbish here". He did not bowl well. And he sure as hell can't bat sh*t like he used to.
Mahmudullah is being dearly missed, no argument on that.
Justification for a place for Ashraful? He's the best right-handed batsman in Bangladesh BY A COUNTRY MILE. Just try and get a count of breathtaking intl. innings he's played for his country. The debut test hundred against Sri Lanka, the historic ton against Australia, 94(52) against England in the very next game in a chase of 393, the 87 against South Africa in the 2007 World Cup, the 158 against India, the 61*(27) against WI in the T20 World Cup in 2007..... I can go on, but i think I've made my point.
