With the powerplay on, his hit or miss style works best as even mishits will go for runs. For middle order strike rotation we should have Bashar and Sakib and for late innings pyrotechnics Aftab & Forhad.
Totally agree with you Razab bhai.

Dunno what you mean by a best case scenario, but I suppose if you take my argument to its extreme, then yes, with Ash's current tendency to either shell it or get into a shell, he'd have even less of a value if ODIs were not to have Powerplay/fielding restrictions. But we know fielding restrictions are not going away. They are being increased in fact. Because fielding restrictions force risk taking. And it tips the balance of the game from the nurdlers to the whackers.

Default Licence to kill for Ashraful

According to todays Amar Desh, team management has given the Licence of his own style batting in coming Champions trophy and most probably as opener.

They have offered Ashraful any batting position he wants with the preference as an opener.

It’s a good move for the following reasons:
  • He is replacing a player (JO) who had no contribution for a long time so Ashraful should have no pressure.
  • He himself is not proving his worth to be included in the team, considering reason #1 and the fact that he will be in the best 11 no matter what, it’s a bonus for us if he clicks.
  • In the sub-continental flat pitch he should be able to play with natural aggression without fighting the exaggerated swing (though Vaas could give him a scare) which should increase his chance of giving us a good start and give himself a big score.
  • This will give Mehrab Jr. (if included in the best 11) a safer spot in the middle to get international exposure.
  • It will also give us left-right combo at the beginning which should create some trouble for the opponents.

I think it's a good move even if he scores 20 odd on average. I believe he'll average more in mid 30's as an opener. I see more opening partnerships of 50 w/ SN and Ash. Against Kenya the duo put up 38 in 6 overs which imo is better than what Rajin or Jo would provide since we'd reach 38 by the 10th over with a wicket down anyway.

দলে যখন আছে ছাই(Ash),
ওপেন করাতে সমস্যা কি ভাই?

Sorry..Bad kobita.may be Ash will give - বাড়া ভাতে ছাই as usually to our hopes, still I think opening is the best (or may be last) slot available for him at the moment.

Hope he can finally make a mark on the opener slot.
Plus a lefty/righty combination would be great as well.
But guess no point wondering what's gonna happen with him, we'll all hv to wait and see.
Only God knows better.

যতদূর স্মরণ করতে পারি, এ্যাশ আগেও ওপেন করেছিলো; এবং যথারীতি কোন ব্যাটিং ঝড় দেখা যায় নি। এবার এর ব্যতিক্রম হবে আশা করা বৃথা। দেখা যাক, আমার অবতারটা এই টুরনামেন্টের পর পরিবর্তন করতে হয় কি না!

Since our opening pair has been failing anyway, Ash should be told to go all out and given a run for more than 1-5 matches as an opener

I think it is the last chance for him to prove his inclusion in the National Team. It should be a "Do or Die" for him.

Even Ash sucks in the CT, he will be there..same way sujon was there. We have no substitute and our selectors and board can't even find anyone in all these years. Look at them, Zimb is playing SA and our organizers could not organize a tournament even with A teams of lanka,or our selfish neighbors pak and ind. If they can't do it why they can't send them to Eng or Aus. I guess they are running short in cash as they spended it in shopping.

Default License to kill

Based on this 'Amar Desh' reort (LinK), Ash has given a 'License to kill', if played in the opening slot.

I just wish it doesn't turn out to be a "license to be killed(prematurely)"
