Can we not include him in the XI but allow him to come and dance during each dismissal?

As someone pointed out we need a minimum of 6 bowlers in the team. Which means that he can really be only dropped at the expense of Shuvo, Riyad or Nazmul. Otherwise its not an option.

thn why the hell he is in the squad? Look, as a membr of the squad, we just should back them up. Now we just can hope for the best and pray for them. Whoever makes it to the playing eleven, we should support them. Being rude or bashing any perticulr plyr won't lead us anywhere at this moment.

Take Ashraful and play him as a mystery bowler which he is! Any runs from him would be considered bonus ...

I think both is true.

You take and Ash drops and cracks..
then you fix with tape and take...and Ash drops and cracks again...
then you use crazy clue and you think you fixed and Ash drops and cracks again...
then you use rice glue and fixe again amd Ash drops and cracks again...

.... it continues until Ash drops and cracks to so many parts.....

... but you fix it with whatevcer part available... and then ...

To me Ashraful looked evil and deranged when he was doing that weird "Boxing Dance" or whatever you want to call it. He had this devilish smile on his face. Imma start calling him "Psycho Ash".

I thought everyone said "Bangladeshi fans are the best fans in the world".

Hmmm -

"
There is only one Ashraful. And, he is our team mascot. Take him, of course!
Eid-ul-Ashraf where art thou?!
"

"Ashraful" and "thinks" in the same sentence, NICE!
"
I wont bother going through more threads to bring out more examples. I think we should remember what ashraful has done for our country. He's a 26 year old, and he has already achieved the following -

3000 ODI runs, and 2000 Test runs. 5 test centuries, 3 one day ones, and 14 first class centuries.

our first win against a zimbabwe team that boasted streak, carlisle, grant, ervine. he got the man of the match after scoring 51 from 32.

i'm pretty sure i don't need to link the 100 at Cardiff against Australia. Mind you, this was in 2005, when we didn't even think about the possibility of winning against the two time defending champions. or the 94 against England the following match, when we were allowed to believe what no other team can believe, take down an English attack (that'd soon win the ashes) and chase 390. or maybe the 58 in the next match against Australia.

How about 51 against Srilanka to win this match. or the 64 of 67 in the next match against srilanka chasing 309, when the rest of batting order failed to cross 30 (and we keep pointing at one guy).

we got the monkey off our back against kenya thanks to him again, a 67 off 43 where we chased their total in 30 overs (and second highest score in the inning was 34)

a 45 not out against srilanka in the world cup, when his teammates capitulated.

then a a top score of 29 not out against Bermuda after we lost 3 wickets for 37 runs.

We beat South Africa in 2007. a score of 87 off 83 balls was complemented by a second highest score of 38 off 59. Australia, then South Africa ----- we only have one win against these two, and Ashraful was the man of the match in both.

in the loss against Ireland, a top score of 35 was not enough.

in a score card that looks like a phone number, a score of 70 off 57 stands out against Newzealand at Auckland.

in the next match, a highest score of 25 is overlooked as the team fails.

64 not out in a revenge win against Ireland.

in 2008, a win against Pakistan was not to be as his teammates folded chasing 233, despite a 56 not out effort by ashraful.

Bangladesh's first 300, anchored by a century by ashraful.

a 60 off 56 not out saw us to our first victory against New Zealand. mind you that game could've been tricky, with two wickets falling for 85, and us requiring 45 overs to knock off the runs.

in the following match, the series could've been ours had it not been for another batting collapse. don't look at ashraful though, he top scored with 40 off 86 chasing 212.

then against south africa, a 73 off 78 was in vain as we fell.

I need to go, but I'll come back and finish this off.

He successfully downgraded himself so low that even his grandmom has zero expectation from him in batting. And I think this is Ash's time to shine in Batting so I say Pick him.

Am I willing to see his weird butterfly dance one more time? Sure. Take him? Ya why not. If the replacement is going to be Riyad or Naeem, than I'd rather have a Ashraful.

If we live in 2011 ... his ghost does not deserve to be in the team. Though, being one of last winning team ... his usual ghost will be on the field for sure.

There should have been another option in the poll, "give him a last chance"

to continue what was doing earlier -

a top score of 57 against WI in the first odi was followed by a score of 64 in the second odi in back to back wins.

103 against zimbabwe in 2009 in a comfortable win

63 against zimbabwe in a win

a top score of of 75 in 2010 against srilanka.

How can we single mindedly work to destroy a career with such determination and diligence. If we go through the innings I've listed in the previous pages (and I've omitted a few), and we'll find countless instances where ashraful was the only batsman fighting. He was the highest scorer in an inning full of single digits. Why dont we judge the countless failures of anyone else. On the other hand, almost in all instances when the team has won, this guy was at the forefront of it. Man of the matches in wins against Australia and South Africa should tell you that. He also top scored when we first beat NZ, WI, Zim, and Srilanka. In tests, his innings of 158 was the only thing that allowed us to remain on the same planet as Indians.

honestly, if we hold such attitude to any one player of the team, then we do not love our team. those of us who start a thread about who to drop and who to play after every match, they are the bees that come during good time, and will leave during the bad ones. I proudly defend all of my players, and will continue to do so regardless of performance. my job is to support them, to cheer for them, to watch them with glee. my job is NOT to analyze their performance.

no why would I want bd to lose, I said they deserve to lose because after such a batting display, no team deserves to win coz we won't see a shafiul miracle every match,
the batsmen didn't take responsibility, I was also mad at the team management from the beginning for not playing SN becoz It would've strengthen the batting lineup, you saw how our batting was. I was ecstatic that we won but I wanted the batsmen to see that their actions have consequences. We were lucky and you know it.

No dude Im just a very big fan of his batting,you know how some Bd fans blindly support Ashraful, even after countless failures, I have the exact feeling about SN, except that his failures aren't as bountiful as Ash's

Anyways, enough about SN, this thread is about Ash, I already got temp banned once for 3 days for posting about SN too much, which they termed trolling, I get a feeling bd fans don't like SN too much
