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 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 McGraw who could easily feast on batsmen's weakness.
I dont know whether to
on this or
. Average bowlers like Zaheer khan (averaging 30) or Anderson (averaging 30) consider Ashraful a laughing stock and can get him out twice in one over and you are saying legends like Akram and Mcgrath will feast on his weakness... lol.
