Mashrafe is one of all time Bangladesh favourites. But, some of you are going totally bonkers over his "leadership" qualities. Yes, as Jeesh has stated, he is loved and respected by most and wears his big heart on his sleeve and he will run through an wall for the team. There is absolutely no doubt about his commitment. And, we all absolutely adore him for that.

Having said that, I am not totally convinced about his tactical acumen or being able to think on his feet or deliver under pressure. All these qualities are hallmarks of a good leader. I think Mashrafe tends to crack under pressure and his poor death bowling history indicates to that. I don't mean to be a killjoy, though. My intention is only to warn some to not to raise their hopes too high. Needless to say, I wish Mash all the success and the very best.
