Default SL players dare/taunt/tempt Ashraful

According to an article in the Daily Star, when Ashraful was batting during the 3rd ODI, the SL players dared him to hit big shots to win the match for Bangladesh. For the most part, this worked in his favor, except when he tried to hit a six and instead holed out to long on.

Here is the quote:
"Sri Lankan players used to taunt me while I was batting in the one-dayers. Sometimes it worked good for me but on some occasions it did not. In the last one-day match a couple of players tempted me to play big shots and win the match, unfortunately I fell in their trap," he said.

And here is the link to the article:

So the question is what did he learn from it? Next time will he do it again? Looks like he knows what his parents, coach, fans and he himself wants to do. That is not getting out with the big shot. Yet when the game is on the line he listens to the SL players. Hopefully he will mature and would not fall into opponents trap again.

I doubt it. Next time he will be out trying a big-shot (in wrong time) he will claim the umipres were taunting him to hit big shot.

oh come on guys, cut him some slack. we all know that ashraful has in the past been guilty of playing recklessly, but i think that the way he played in these ODIs is a far cry from the old reckless Ashraful. After all, when you're chasing 310, you have to go for a few risky ones. Otherwise, you run the risk of being accused of not playing positively.

Ashraful and the Bangladesh team are slowly and steadily moving forward. Sure, there will be a day here, a match there when we will see the old Bangladesh team on display. But slowly and steadily, those days are becoming fewer and the days on which the new Bangladesh is on display are becoming more frequent.

Saw live how badly those SL players taunt. They say humiliating & provocating things very loudly in the ears of our batsmen. Our batsmen should object to it & immediately complaint to the ump. This complaint is 100% legitimate. Our players, specially, our min-min, putu-putu, kodu mia Bashar should stomp on this crap hard.

I think the Srilankan's are only second to the Australians in abusing batsmen.

I am sorry I couldn't agree with you man, but Ashraful is the only batsman that scored two half centuries against Srilanka in this series. He is only 21 years old, and he is doing great against the Lankans. What about the other 10 players in the squad, how come they dont learn from their mistakes. Why is he the only one who has to learn.

I think Ashraful IS learning to live up to his potential. Just as out of curiosity today, I checked his average since that 100 against the Aussies last year. It's around 32 -- way above his career average of 20! Pretty decent going.

About the sledging, its a part of the game which most sports have in some form of the other. Its up to international players to be psychologically confident enough about their own abilities to deal with it, not go crying to match referee.

Out of line to call Sangakkara an idiot for taunting Ash. It's totally acceptable, and expected. It is the wickey's job to do a little verbal banter behind the stumps. Perhaps Khaled Mashud should learn a thing or two from the star keeper...

Also, the good batsman are able to block most of the 'sledging' out. It's part of the game, full stop. Ash needs to learn to control his shot making abilities when patience is required, and also learn not to be so gullible.

Heh, you may actually be right. They had their blood boiling after the 2nd ODI loss. I just finished watching the highlights and immediately after the loss Mahela went straight to the umpire and was having an animated discussion. I'm kind of enjoying it though. We're still a very young team and a couple of more wins like this will start a rivalry. The day may not be very far when the subcontinent will boast its very own supreme rivalries: Ind-Pak and BS-SL.

On a brighter note, this shouldn't be a problem in the test series as Ash shouldn't have to worry about the tempo of the BD inning.

Next time Ash may want to make a funny face and say "Me no Hablas Ingles".

Yes, it is the great the dillemma. Entertainment or solid performances..... Perhaps Ash could strike a happy medium. I think Jayasuriya is a wonderful example of a gifted stroke maker who can control himself when the sutuation requires him to.

You know - if you get sledged - sledge back. C'mon man, we should be made of sterner stuff - we can't always go running to our mommas.

Bat diya matha fataiya de Ashraful..... Amra achi tomar shathe!



Or we should just teach ashraful to say :

"your momma" - that works too

Sanga: Good shot Ash
Ash: Your momma
SAnga: You are not holding the bat right
Ash" Yo momma"
Sanga: What's your problem
Ash "yo momma"
Sanga: "boy they gonna play 50 overs"
Ash "I gonna play yo momma"

I suggest starting with Rabon and Hanumanji - wait that would only work on Murali. Hmm, how about asking Sangi if the length of his name was inversely proportional to ....

Kumara Chokshanada Sangakkara = 28 letters

Ashraful Matin = 13 letters.

I agree. I dislike Sri Lanka just next to England and Australia.

Comeon, it hurts to see Sri Lankan players doing all the sledgings. I was never aware of this kind of behavior by the Sri Lankan players before.

The behavior / attitude of Jaywardena also surprised me after the 2nd ODI. It gives me encouragement to think that if all our players can play on their team spirit, then it is possible for us to beat Sri Lanka even in a test match.

For example, our players did not play on their team spirit today at all. Getting set at 20s and 30s and then going out is not a good sign of team spirit. Also, scoring 16s and 17s and then going out is not a good sign of team spirit at all.

hehehe...wish our players had that kind of wit in them; unfortunately, looks like it'll never happen, given the cultural background and poor language skills
