Default Ashraful should be ready for everything after hitting 6!

And he was NOT.
Even the commentator picked two possibility- Yorker or bouncer?
Hitting 6 brings two things- for the batsman he attempts another big shot (and mostly have the consequence of Ash!) and for the Bowler, he want to take a revenge and delivers a better ball with variation.
Ashraful did not know this and failed to dig down the yorker.
If he could score a30 even, our chances would be better.

Yeah, good point. He was looking to smash the come-back ball of Brett Lee! I think Ricky Ponting's comments about Ashraful are very pertinent...

Ashraful needs to constantly remind himself the value of his wkt in this team. He talks about it all the time. Though that was a peach of a delivery, had he not attacked that ball, I am quite sure he could have dug it out. He has superior eyes and that is his downfall at times. Overconfidence. But, for sheer entertainment value, that was an amazing six! amazing shot. Gordon Greenidge and Gilchrist written all over it.
