Ashraful – surprise selection by Mumbai Indians IPL team

mohammed ashraful mumbai indians iplThe Sachin Tendulkar-led Mumbai IPL cricket team has bought the dashing Bangladesh batsman Mohammed Ashraful for just USD75000

Ashraful seems to be a inspired selection by the Mumbai IPL team which will miss the services of Robin Utthappa , who has been transferred to the Bangalore Royal Challengers cricket team

Ashraful ‘s batting talents are ideally suited for Twenty20 cricket

Mohammed Ashraful is a talented batsman who does not really need to settle down before he gets going. Ashraful and his hard hitting ways are ideal for Twenty20 cricket , where you have very few balls to come to terms with the bowling and you have got to look to score boundaries off almost every ball

Ashraful has in the past scored some inspired knocks notably against India , Sri Lanka and even the Australian bowlers at their peak and his batsmanship and experience will be a boon to the Mumbai Indians IPL cricket team

Ashraful ‘s infamous inconsistency and his tendency to throw away his wicket is not a problem for Twenty20 cricket

There is always talk about Ashraful and his losses of concentration that lead to his playing atrocious shots and getting out after being well set. However, that may be just because Mohammed Ashraful has not been nutured by the right mentors and coaches

Sachin Tendulkar ‘s calming influence and mentorship skills should see Mohammed Ashraful blossoming to realize his true potential as one of the greats of world cricket

Also, a quick thirty to forty run inning from Ashraful may be good enough for the Mumbai Indians Twenty20 IPL team since the team has a great opening combination in Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasurya and just needs an experienced hand to shore up the middle order supported by newcomers such as Ajinkya Rahane and Abhishek Nayar

Mohammed Ashraful is an excellent choice for the Mumbai IPL team and the Mumbai Indians IPL team is lucky to get this talented batsman at such as a great price

    Absolutely agreed…Ashraful’s talent can prove to be decisive at times

    Ashraful has great talent – sometimes the responsibility of playing for a weak side become too much, thats the reason Ashraful has not seen the kind of success that people expected.

    No such problems in the Mumbai Indians cricket team-Ashraful should play freely and take all the chances that he gets to prove that he is a great batsman

    Ashraful is sitting out of the Mumbai Indians cricket team along with Napier and other classy cricketers due to the four foreign player rule in the IPL T20 cricket league.

    Dont worry, Ashraful will get his chance to play in the IPL T20 League for the Mumbai Indians soon enough,and he is a good enough batsman to make good use of the opportunities given to him in the IPL

Got something to say?
