It’s a good move for the following reasons:
  • He is replacing a player (JO) who had no contribution for a long time so Ashraful should have no pressure.
  • He himself is not proving his worth to be included in the team, considering reason #1 and the fact that he will be in the best 11 no matter what, it’s a bonus for us if he clicks.
  • In the sub-continental flat pitch he should be able to play with natural aggression without fighting the exaggerated swing (though Vaas could give him a scare) which should increase his chance of giving us a good start and give himself a big score.
  • This will give Mehrab Jr. (if included in the best 11) a safer spot in the middle to get international exposure.
  • It will also give us left-right combo at the beginning which should create some trouble for the opponents.
