Needs to keep the ball on the ground. Just once I would like to see him score a fifty followed by a thirty

Very interesting. So we can be sure that he won't reach 25 again in this series

Interestingly, under Whatmore at least, Ashraful has scored a half-century against every country he played against.

Another interesting thing is his extremely low frequency of being bowled or lbw'ed.

thr graph seems to show that after ash has scored a half century or more he has failed the next two or three times. the sequence would indicate he should be dropped for the next test against india and the first against zimbabwe.

But the problem is we dont know when he will break the sequence, so we have to stick with him, anyway him and bashar are the only decent batsmen we have. Why was ahmed dropped today, he has shown promise like iqbal?

See this trend :

v Aus : 23, 7, 0, 0

v Pak : 77, 7, 12, 3

v Zim : 98, 0, 1

v WI : 81, 1, 16, 9

v NZ : 57, 26, 0, 0

Everytime the highest score came in the first innings of a series.
After that the opponents either worked him out or he grew careless.

In the five first inns, he made 336 at an average of 67.20
In the other 14 innings, 82 runs at 5.86

I hope he changes this series. We will have to wait and see what happens in the second innings.

Let's reflect back on the 14 times Ash was dismissed cheaply:

*****

26.6 McGrath to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: short ball skies a hook shot
straight to the man just behind square leg in the deep

Mohammad Ashraful c Gillespie b McGrath 23 (52b 1x4 0x6)

*****

34.4 Lee to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: sharply lifting ball flicks the
shoulder of the bat as he tries to get out of the line

Mohammad Ashraful c Gilchrist b Lee 7 (41b 1x4 0x6)

*****

44.4 Gillespie to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: good length ball that drifts
down leg, Hannan [sic] flicks at it at hip height, Gilchrist collects,
big appeal goes up for caught behind and so does umpire Koertzen's
finger

Mohammad Ashraful c Gilchrist b Gillespie 0 (5b 0x4 0x6)

*****

29.5 MacGill to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: on the front foot, pads up to
one that pitches middle and goes straight, big shout for lbw, and
given, a pair for Ashraful

Mohammad Ashraful lbw b MacGill 0 (3b 0x4 0x6)

*****

11.6 Danish Kaneria to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: Gone! again tosses up,
tries to defend it on the front foot, spins sharply away from the
right hander, gets the outer edge in the hand of Taufeeq at slip

Mohammad Ashraful c Taufeeq Umar b Danish Kaneria 7 (24b 1x4 0x6)

*****

45.4 Saqlain Mushtaq to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: pitches up, bit quicker
in the air, Ashraful tries to pads it in front of stumps, huge
appeal for lbw, De Silva figer goes up

Mohammad Ashraful lbw b Saqlain Mushtaq 12 (25b 2x4 0x6)

*****

9.1 Shabbir Ahmed to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: Gone! pitches on good
length just outside off, swings away from the right hander,
Ashraful plays away from the body, off the edge to 3rd slip in the
hand of Debutant Salman Butt who makes no mistake

Mohammad Ashraful c Salman Butt b Shabbir Ahmed 3 (7b 0x4 0x6)

*****

4.4 Blignaut to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: fuller ball outside off, guided
uppishly to gully and gives a simple catch to Friends

Mohammad Ashraful c sub b Blignaut 0 (1b 0x4 0x6)

*****

32.6 Friend to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: Gone! good length ball, swings
away, gets the outer edge and Carlisle catch it at the third
attempt

Mohammad Ashraful c Carlisle b Friend 1 (34b 0x4 0x6)

*****

19.3 Sarwan to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: GONE! juicy full toss, pushed
back in the air, Sarwan takes an easy catch, soft dismissal

Mohammad Ashraful c & b Sarwan 1 (3b 0x4 0x6)

*****

32.6 Banks to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: gone! flighted delivery outside
the off stump, tempts Ashraful into the shot who ends up playing
it early, Sarwan takes a simple catch mid wicket, bowling change
works for Lara!

Mohammad Ashraful c Sarwan b Banks 16 (44b 1x4 0x6)


*****

Background: Bangladesh 152/5, Mohammad Ashraful 0* (0b)

50.6 Sarwan to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: all over! tossed up on the middle
and leg stump line, Ashraful moves forward and tries to go over
Lara at mid wicket, but the timing is not perfect and Lara jumps
high and takes a good catch, West Indies win by 99 runs

Mohammad Ashraful c Lara b Sarwan 9 (24b 0x4 0x6)


*****

51.4 Vettori to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: tossed up, a bit short, Ashraful
not fully forward, defends, takes the glove to gully, Styris takes
an easy catch.

Mohammad Ashraful c Styris b Vettori 26 (97b 1x4 1x6)

*****

32.5 Wiseman to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: tossed up, Ashraful steps out
and mistimes the drive to mid-on. Astle takes the catch moving to
his left. A really bad shot to play so early in the morning.

Mohammad Ashraful c Astle b Wiseman 0 (2b 0x4 0x6)

*****

19.2 Vettori to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: pitched on middle and leg, a bit
of bounce, Ashraful moves forward and tries to defend, takes the
glove to Styris at gully, a simple catch.

Mohammad Ashraful c Styris b Vettori 0 (4b 0x4 0x6)

If we go by the graph and knowing Pilot's character, it will be Pilot. If Ash plays by his rule book, he will either fall short of 1000 or get it right after Pilot.

I will go with Ash. He is more concentrated than he used to be and I am pretty sure he will fix his weak points.

Ash probed again himself that he is Ashraful. After doing 60 then he came down to bottom again.

Painfully, the trend continues... I hope Ashraful gets at least another decent innings in this series.

Nice work Arnab and Tintin.

I think Ashraful is a changed players this series. He is more focused. Laxman and Ash should have gotten benefit of doubt on their lbw calls.

Well done ! Good revealing stats particularly his liking to post the highest score for the series at the first instance.

Hopefully, Chittagong will prove the stats wrong !
