Default Ashraful Officially Ownes Murali and Sri Lanka

his average in 20 innings against SL stands at 42.42 with 4 centuries. his career average is nearly half that standing at just under 24.

if a guy averaging 50, averages 80 against an opponent, it would be said he owns them...so ash ownes Murali and Sri Lanka in the same way that Murali ownes bangladesh (except ash) and Vaas' bat co-owns bangladesh with Jason Gillespie.

*********

in 4 fourth innings, ash boasts an average of 44 beating the great Sachin Tendulkar's average of 36.72 (recently boosted by an unbeaten ton against England). ash's SR also stands at 55+ to the Master Blaster's 50.75

carry on, skipper.

Edit: your right

I expect him to do well next Test as well

I agree with Tintin, His day 4 batting was exceptional. Ash just has a problem resisting to attack the Fast Bowlers

I wish he bat as he did on the fourth day. When he was not taking risks, he never looked like getting out. There were no fancy shots, the fours all came in the cover and point region. But on the fifth day, it was usual Ash - a slog and paddle sweep, and lofted shots over mid on and mid off. Looks good when it comes off, but that is not what the team needs.

Also 58 v India, 24 v Pakistan, but < 20 against all others. Weakness against subcontinental teams

He will have to face Mendis whose balls are much harder to read than Murali's. The Indian batsmen found it very hard to read him, so what will the BD batsmen do here, even though they did not play him badly in the Asia cup, but still he is a menace and he loves to bowl long spells. I was hoping that he would not be fit for the second test.

actually, it is better for us that Mendis plays in second test, as it is a good challenge and a better preparation before the ODI's.

should be an interesting test match to watch!

While watching the game on the 4th day afternoon, I was saying to a friend that if we could play the 5 day overs today, we would definitely own the match. Because a lot of times, we have seen our team loosing the course on the next day morning.

Some players just play better against one certain opposition compared to others. For example : VVS Laxman vs Australia, S Nafees vs Zimbabwe etc..

Amazing, Ash seems to know the secret to playing murali. The thing is, ash looks so mch more fluent when he is not looking to slog the ball but play normal cricket shots.

This is misleading information. I think the only reason Ashraful does well in 4th innings is because usually by then the result of the match is out of question - the opposition having taken an enormous first innings lead - and there is no pressure on him which I'm sure was not the case with several of Tendulkar's 4th innings knocks.

Just look at his record in 2nd innings of the matches that we came close to winning - Multan, Fatullah, Mirpur against SA and recently against Newzealand - which shows the stats are not telling the true story as 4th innings batting heroics usually imply success in pressure cooker situations.

i don't think this makes that much of a difference. ash always has enormous pressure. more so than tendy who has the likes of dravid, ganguly, sehwag, ghambir, and laxman/dhoni to fall back on. the lead/deficit factor is also irrelevant as bangladesh is almost always facing a large deficit and ash seldom scores big in innings 1,2, or 3.

but i will agree about the matches u spoke about.

however, 4th innings in subcontinent against murali is no laughin matter.

Ashraful is officially the chicken brain, who takes one step only to forget where he was and doing.

What on earth happened to Ashraful today, he repeatedly practiced to throw his wicket at the stake of team situation and he succeeded at last and Murali got his wicket account more healthy. The otherday I was so glad that at last our Ash has became a mature player and he knows how to play according to the situation, but he just F***d my complement by doing silly bating today. Why, why, why same mistakes he is doing deliverately(today his dismissal proved that). Anyone have any clue whats going on with him???

I think he was overconfident agains Murali ( as he officially ownes Murli)
and he wanted to play some rare but risky shots which got him out.
But anyway happy to see him doing well vs Mendis & Murl.

I haven't either, although he might have done it when I wasn't looking (like last night - I turned it off at 33 - 3).

Self-destruction through reverse sweep has always been Aftab's specialty.
