His double century was against a bottom placed 2nd division club (Rainhill plays in the first division of MSCA league) in a cup match. In the league, Ash's batting average was around forty before he left for Africa. There are quite a few semi-regular FC players from India-Pakistan, even Ash's UK-Pakistani teammate Imran, who have maintained far better batting averages than Ash had.

No wonder Rainhill has let Ash go even when they have a crucial last match to secure their promotion to the Liverpool league.
