Profile

How Bangladesh cricket will view Mohammad Ashraful remains up for debate. For several years this boy wonder raised the country's cricket to a surfer's optimism from the debilitating quicksand that was their initiation into Test cricket since 2000, only to let the country and the sport down when he admitted to his involvement in match-fixing and spot-fixing in the Bangladesh Premier League.

Timeline
    • September 8, 2001
      Historical mismatch
      • At 17 years and 63 days, becomes the youngest Test centurion, even as Bangladesh go down by an innings in Colombo. Later says he had dreamt of Brian Lara's 375 and himself scoring a century the previous night.
    • March 10, 2004
      A rare event
      • His first international win. And it's he who sets it up with a 32-ball 51 to help Bangladesh reach 238 in Harare, eight more than what Zimbabwe would score. It is his 24th ODI, and his third year in international cricket.
    • December 19, 2004
      India see the light
      • Scores a breathtaking century against India in Chittagong - 158 off 194 balls, hitting 24 boundaries and three sixes. Is left stranded, as Bangladesh fall just short avoiding the follow-on. They eventually lose by an innings and 83 runs.

Best Performances
    • 26 and 114 v Sri Lanka, Colombo, 2001-02
      • Sanath Jayasuriya has been a touch condescending in sending Bangladesh in on a near-perfect batting track in Colombo. Jayasuriya doesn't want to waste time, and Bangladesh oblige by getting bowled out for 90, theb17-year-old Ashraful being the top-scorer. Further humiliation visited Bangladesh as Jayasuriya calls back Marvan Atapattu (201) and Mahela Jayawardene (150), and the two go down "retired out" in the scorebook.
    • 158 not out v India, Chittagong, 2004-05
      • The innings is typical of Ashraful, the timing of the innings isn't; for it comes with the Test still alive and it takes Bangladesh to just short of avoiding a follow-on in Chittagong, which could have resulted in a draw. Responding to India's 540 Bangladesh find themselves in a familiar state at 54 for 3, when Ashraful starts his special. Irfan Pathan, Zaheer Khan, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh make no impression whatsoever, as the innings from Ashraful has the sense of the fearless, the authoritative, and the pure. He gets to his 50 off 70 balls, and if that is quick he increases the pace even more to reach his century in 125 balls: from 76 to the hundred he moves in seven balls. India don't know what to do: they set the field back, hoping for an error. In the end they have to contend with errors from the other end, as Ashraful stays not out for 158, the highest in Tests by a Bangladeshi. But with minimal support from the tail, Ashraful and Bangladesh fall eight short of avoiding the follow-on, and normal service resumes in the second innings as they fail to make India bat again.
    • 100 v Australia, Cardiff, 2005
      • It is just another normal, one-sided ODI - something expected of Australia v Bangladesh - for about three-fourths of a hot day in Cardiff. The pre-match odds are a suitable 500-1; Australia have scored 249, and Bangladesh are off to a slow start, getting to 72 for 3 in 21 overs. Nobody seems to have told a red-hot Ashraful that; he seems to be playing a different set of bowlers on a different pitch: Habibul Bashar scores only 47 in the match-turning 150-run fourth-wicket partnership. He hits 11 boundaries in a run-a-ball maiden ODI century, and by the time he leaves Bangladesh need 23 in 17 balls. Aftab Ahmed takes them over the line, and Ashraful has enacted the greatest upset in ODI history.
