Default Mohammad Ashraful and Ten Stages of Ox Herding (New Front Page Article)

Mohammad Ashraful and Ten Stages of Ox Herding
Zeeshan Mahmud

Every protagonist must go through ten stages of transformation in search of Enlightenment from ultimate novice to that of a wandering master or Sage. Mohammad Ashraful has gone through several metamorphoses from that of a wunderkind, to a failed genius and now that of an artist in supreme touch of mastery to make his comeback. Ashraful is on an unbeaten, and so far, the highest, partnership of 261 with Mushfiqur Rahim with the showman himself on the highest individual score by a Bangladesh batsman. His BPL century was the first flash of insight of his potential to return to arena and his 100 stint at practice solidified his intent. Now at the eve of what could be a potential double hundred in test- first Bangladeshi to do so, we trace back at his journey to finding the Source.

How appropriate from Zee to pen this tribute to our little 'master'.

A very enjoyable read.

Really nice read Zee. Interesting to juxtapose your analysis with what Ash said about praying 5 times a day helping him improve his concentration.
