Exactly, it's an excuse. To be a good batsman you score runs, Ashraful doesn't. 5 and a half years into his career and the most anyone could possibly say is that he has perceived potential combined with pathetic performance.His average doesn't do him justice, and I'm sure that excuse has been used before. He quite clearly is one of their best batsman, despite having a low average. Everybody knows what he is capable of and how classy he is, once he starts stringing the performances together then people like you will be able to see aswell.
Bangladesh shouldn't build the team around him, definitely not, but he's a pure matchwinner when he's on.

I'll "rib" back anything thrown my way - simple as.If you will make such risible comments, expect to be ribbed.
And it wouldn't have been a gem if he'd been out when he (possibly) could have been. Simple as.The fact of the matter is, despite a (possible) chance given (maybe!!!), Ashraful's innings was a pure gem, under the pressure of B'desh being in quite a bit of trouble. Some of the shots he played were top notch. One of the innings of the tournament.
Yeah, yeah - 9 in a row.
Yes, it was neccessary.
