Certainly Ashraful along with few others in BD team are talented entertainers in a Cricket Team. His 'Koi' fishing over the cordon line; making uniform muddy; going away from the angle to chase the running ball but never closing the angle and wondering every time he is 'out' are few characteristics.
To me, most disappointing is undermining opponents and it is bad in sports and life as a whole. Against Pakistan, he was hooking every ball on off side. Sohail Tanvir gradually changed the line towards middle and he failed to realize the bowlers study a great deal of batsman's ability. Even in his best day against South Africa, he had failed to notice that they had placed a fielder where he was striking it. He would be minimally effective against bowlers like Wasim Akram and Glen McGrath who could easily feast on batsmen's weakness.
