Man of the moment

Can't wait, can you, for Bangladesh's next ODI match -- if only to see what Mohammad Ashraful will do next? David Hopps, in the Guardian, celebrates the talented youngster.
In the quiet of the pavilion at Fenner's, back at the start of the tour, Mohammad Ashraful had risen to his full height, a good foot lower than Steve Harmison, and predicted that he would hook England's bowlers to distraction in the one-day series.
Harmison? Yes, no problems, he would hook him. Andrew Flintoff? Why not him, too?
Any fast bowler you cared to name he would hook him, because the Bangladeshi likes to hook. He had hooked Glenn McGrath and he had hooked Brett Lee. He was not about to stop now.
