Default "Bangladesh will do better in Sri Lanka" - Ashraful

Our latest bulletin..


Current Tour

Bangladesh in Sri Lanka, 2007
"Bangladesh will do better in Sri Lanka" - Ashraful
15 June 2007
Bangladesh's newly appointed captain Mohammad Ashraful believes Bangladesh will start performing in the test arena from starting with the upcoming Sri Lanka series. According to Ashraful, Bangladesh will perform much better compared to their last outing in Sri Lanka in 2005, which was dubbed as the worst test series played by Bangladesh.

Ash should score a ton and atleast two 50s. 1 good innings and 2 moderate innings out of 6..is what he should aim to start.

and perhaps a ton here or there from someone other than ash, JO, or haba

Time for him to lead from the front.
I'd really expect from him to put up a good show.
Looking forward to a double ton from him, the first BD batsman to score double century in the test.

I personally.... can't really be much confident of Ashraful's comments. He is still not fit enough with his words.

Let me give you an example...just yesterday, I saw him in a TV program...a girl from that program was asking him….tell me some thing about your school life.

Ashraful: Umm...school e...aami...shobshomai fail kortam na..

I could not believe my ears. I was feeling so mean for myself as if I am in Ash’s position and everyone will now start laughing at me.

And believe me he was not joking !

It's not a depleted Lanka side. They have named full strength team.

Sri Lanka announce Test and ODI squads

I don't see the reason why all captains of Bd keep on saying they will do better without proving their abilities first. First of all, they lack techniques and can not distinguish between good or bad ball. These mistakes should have been rectified long time ago before playing for national team. BCB should take the blame for not having specialist level coaches in U14,U19 and A teams. Though the new generation of national cricketer is little better, but they lack lot of temperment and patience. Atleast the later part can be corrected by practicing more and playing more longer version of the game. Playing in nets for one hour means nothing when you have a challenge to play test for full five days.
I truly believe captains should try their best before stating any comments. I will wait till the first test to do more drilling.

Well, that's a part of the job, keep the boys motivated.

I can see what SS as Bangladesh captain will say before a tour.

Its a tough tour.. Srilanka is a very strong team with practically no areas of defficiency. They wont fail. Its just that Bangladesh will have to raise the game for themselves to a much higher level than we can expect from them as as an ODI team. By nature, Bangladeshi's are impatient,, and we have a team full of young players. Talent is not the question,,, patience is. (Ironically)Hence,, I would be extremely delighted when I see the game being streched to Day 4 if we can manage to. There is no scope for us to run and hide,, when we are at the "Lion's" den, might as well turn back and fight till the last blood that could be drawn out of the Sinhalese lions..

Omio Dada,

In the previous two test series against Sri Lanka, Habibul scored 4 fifties. Check before you post.

I want to see Bashar bhai, Ash, and Saqib scoring Tons.

Is it too much to ask for?

Oh really !!!! Good to know that. I just hope he achieve it not by playing 41 balls 67 runs when team is trying to avoid Innings defeat on the 3rd day. I know ... I know... it was fun to watch... but to take the game further (as he is promising), you need to run for marathon not sprint... I hope he really realize that. Otherwise it will be all same-ol-same-ol...all big promises and no follow-up action.
