Default Ashraful\'s threat to Hogg

It happened in one over during the partnership of Ashraful and Shahriar (BD vs Aus). Shahriar was facing Hogg, with Ashraful at the non-strikers end. Shahriar played straight down the pitch to one ball. As Hogg was scampering to get the ball and prevent the batsmen from getting one run, he gave a slight nudge to Ashraful's back to get him out of the way. While Hogg collected the ball, we saw on the TV Ashraful gesturing to Hogg with his bat and raised eye brow and said something (or mimicked something) to Hogg. I could not dicipher what he actually said, but it might be between "Oi...ki hoisey?" and "Oi..dhakka dili ken?" (for the non bengalis.."Oi..whats up?" or "Oi..why the hell did you push?")

Apart from bursting into laughter from this (the way he said it was reminiscent to his old "para" days threat...I guess), it just showed that our boys are not in awe of the opposition any more, instead there seems to be a little bit of belligerent mood in their psyche (even when it may be uncalled for). Also another point to note was the way Ashraful was returning back the glare of the bowlers. On another day he would have been looking away, but he was steadily glaring at them with a smirk. I found that interesting.

I think it's a good move to dish out a little for a change. It's all in good fun, and make for a more competitive match - which BD are striving for. Aussies and rest of the world should welcome it, and encourage it (to an extent).

But, there should be no worries for BD players going "overboard" with gamesmanship - they are a decent and good-mannered buch of guys.

I saw him glaring at a lot of Aussies. He gave a real glare to mid off at one stage when he ran through for a single. I thought he was going to beat him up.

There should be some pics of Ash's venomous stares towards the opposition!

I saw the incident too. Ashraful's body language was great. He showed no signs of fear which was evident in his face and gave a rhetorical type of reply through his body behaviour which I surmise really shut up Hogg. The glimpse of Ash's dominance over Brad Hogg's unfair play was a sight to catch. It really revealed his bravery; showing no respect to the Aussies as if they were a side lower to Bangladesh, for eg Kenya and even after that, he showed great maturity, playing sensibly and not being angered, frustrating the Aussies.
