Default Rising of ash the allrounder

Once there was a batsman.he was known for his big hitting.he was a match winner with the bat for his team.but alas!his form was inconsistent.if he scored a quick fifty one day then he could not reach double figures in the next 3 matches.he was becoming the headache for team.he was also a partime spin bowler.so one day the captain decided to try his luck with the ball.and he did magic.so thats the tale of a batsman who became a bowling-allrounder from a big hitter.he is now contributing regularly with the ball and hitting runs in the slog batting at no.6 or 7.do you know who the batsman is?sorry wrong ans.it's not ash it is shahid afridi from pakistan.can our ash do the same?time will tell.but if it happens our team will be more stronger.what do you think?

I guess Afridi came to the team as a bowling all-rounder at the start of his career. Though he was reputed for his power hitting but the first priority behind his initial inclusion to the pak team was actually his bowling.

Are u kidding me? Aftab o tow ekdin 5 wicket nisilo 19 run diya. What happened after that? Ash did the trick for us today thats great and congratulation to him. But thats as far as its going to get. Sometimes batsmans decide to go after the part timers to milk some runs and end up giving away wickets. Like I said all credit goes to Ash for what he did today but you cant expect him to deliver like this tomorrow. Better teams will score easy runs off him.

Ash can also Sing and Dance, I am confused if is he a singing or a dancing all rounder.

He is an actor and I am sure he can write poems too, this is not yet reveled but will be reveled as soon as butterfly ball.

After watching him bowl, I think he has a good flighted action and that might be a handy to have in the team given that he pitches the ball in the right areas. Even he got wickets, he was expensive. He needs to work on his bowling and I mean a lot. I kind of feel his bowling just might prove slightly better than mahmudullah or Naeem if he can come to terms of pushing himself that far.

Not an all-rounder, he's turning out to be a bowler from a specialist batsman.

I won't be surprised if he is our next best spinner after Sakib & Razzak; and I won't even be surprised if he ends his international career with 100 odd test match wickets. After all, when he entered the national team, he was in the team for his leg spin, who could bat a bit. The all-famous debut test century vs. SL had turned him into a specialist batsman.

Those celebrations brought the team and the crowd back into it.

They were an important part of a very ugly win.

Well said Night _ wolf. I do not see anything wrong in Ashraful's celebration, rather it has motivated the Tigers to believe in themselves that they could win from there...

Indeed indeed Ian. Ash's two wickets were as vital as Shafiuls' four IMHO

Good Lord....

Let's just be thankful he contributed in a positive manner(even though he was hardly the only person to fail with the bat yesterday).

As for the dancing...I knew there would be mixed reactions to it...haha. I had some Indian mates txt me, how arrogant it looked. I was personally a bit embarrassed by the dancing, but only because he has no rhythm.

As others have said, it looked a bit out of place, possibly arrogant/stupid, but it was what the team needed, a pick me up. Got everyone else 'g-d up', and bouncing, the crowd back into the contest...and the rest as they say is history.

An all rounder implies a man who can be in the team for either his batting or for his bowling. Tell me which is it for Ash.

He should in the 15 for his exuberant joy though.
