very funny that ashraful plays a knock like this versus a very poor team . . . in an ODI game.

this game might change the figures. but this is what i have compiled BEFORE this match and the 3 SA ODIs:

ashraful in ODIs against top 8 sides:

batting avg of 21.74 and a strike rate of 73.90

vs his ODI batting against all sides (minnows included):

avg of 22 and strike rate of 73.20 aprox.

shahriar nafees, aftab ahmed, and sakib al hasan are minnow bashars to the max. but ashraful actually plays the same against top sides as he does against minnows. but lately ash has picked up his game against minnows it seems. will be interesting to see if he carries it through to the next 2 matches and in PAK next month.
