Default Ashraful has the potential to be a world class batsman

Ashraful has sound technique, if he can improve his consistency, with ALLAH almighty's help Ashraful can reach the likes of Tendulkar, Brian Lara.

I think Aftab and Ashraful both have potential to be world class.

How many world class batsmen are currently playing?

How do you classify one batsman as world class?

the most important thing is letting ash play his natural game. he's much more at ease as ashraful, rather than as golla. in this tournament we've seen him play as himself, and we've seen the results. in contrast, whenever he's forced to go into a shell (by whoever), we've rarely seen ash flourish. the best innings from ash that i've seen were all played by ashraful the attacker. that doesn't mean he has to play a shot like the one he did against batty in the second inning at chester-le-street. natural is the key.

Ashraful is naturally attacking player. no matter what, he needs to attack. whenever he tries to restrict himself , his natural instinct hamper and he lost rhythem.

So for him, attacking is the key to success. Ganguly has rightly, pointed out that in duleep trophy.

The players you think will be remembered in twenty years.

For example, Graeme Wood wasnt world class. Viv Richards was.

Viv Richards is a two hundred year element........

first goal is test class... then one may not become world class...
some good players do not flourish.. some do..

darren lehman was a 12th man when he was 18.. (sydney 89...) expected to be a super super star..never became aworld beater.. Even a player like Lara started very quietly in Pakistan..

so far, aftab and ashraful looks to be the one who can go all the way..

Not a bad guide, but not perfect. Dilip Vengsarkar was a world class batsman right? How many people remember him? Or how about Haynes, when was the last time you thought of him? And how many people will remember Thorpe or Damien Martyn in 20 years?

People like Richards or Lillee were extraordinary players during their time; Lara, Tendulkar, Warne and Wasim have been the extraordinary players in the last decade or decade and a half. The bar for world class should be set at a little lower I feel.

IMO,

Test Class = Good enough to play Test
World Class = Good enough for almost any contemporary Test team
Legend = Good enough for most all-time XI lists

I know there was a discussion on not blaming Ash anymore or defend him against criticism or something like that. Here's my thing, No one scores hundreds and fifties in every single match and to expect something like that from any player is not only naive, but also insane. Next time he plays his natural game and goes out for first ball duck or a shaky 10-15, realize that he is only human and it's only natural. Don't form a line to blame him for flopping. If he does horribly, give him a break, drop him from the team for couple of matches and he'll come blazing back. I started to lose my faith on Ash's consistency, we all knew what hez capable of but he was getting further away from our (sometimes) overhyped expectations.

Not only did he prove himself, he picked the two best teams in the world to showcase his talent. If he continues to score big every 3/4 matches from now on, he could end up with the best of them. Only time will tell if he can become a legend.

By the way, when you compare his performance with that of Aussie and English batsmen, only compare the runs scored against English and Australian bowlers to get the true picture. No point adding the runs scored against Bangladesh as you can imagine what Ash could have done to the likes of Tapash, Rafique, Nazmul, Rana and co. He'd prolly be careful facing Masri though.

Whatever happened to our bowling anyways ? We only took 9 wickets in 4 innings. That's pathetic.

Even with a first-ball duck Ashraful has drawn enough of our attention. Like it or not, the media is going to look for him as paparazzi.
He has some techniques. He has also grown in confidence. All he needs is a little more consistency.

I wonder where the world class potential batsman Ashraful will go when his poor form returns.

that has nothing to do with anything on this topic. all batsmen have poor run of forms.

he wont go anywhere. he'll deal with it, with more confidence, gained from this series.

Ashraful will Inshallah one day become 1 of the top 5 batsmen in the world.

His technique is good, he should just play his natural game.

And hope he always scores a 50 to make his average come in 40's and be consistent....
