I think the answer is - mental weakness. Ash is still not mature enough to handle pressure situations all by himself (and ends up doing stupid stuffs in such cases). He looks a lot more stable batsman when someone plays a good supporting role from the other end (for example- Bashar in SL series, or Aftab on few other occasions). The management should not have changed the batting order by swaping Aftab and Bashar.
