Mohammad Ashraful

One of the greatest cricketers of his country, Mohammad Ashraful represented Bangladesh in 61 Tests, 177 ODIs and 23 T20Is. In 2005, he was recognized for demolishing the Aussie bowlers during an ODI in the tri-series in England.

In the 2007 World Cup, Ashraful was vastly helpful to increase Bangladesh's fortunes when they unexpectedly defeated South Africa and India in the league stage to register their best ever World Cup performance. He is the youngest Bangladeshi cricketer to have scored a century in Test cricket at a tender age of 17.

Ashraful is the first Bangladeshi player to have played in the Indian Premier League wherein Mumbai picked him for $75,000 in the 2009 IPL Auction. He scored only two runs in his debut match for MI.

Ashraful was banned by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) for eight years for his role in the spot-fixing scandal. It has to be said that Mumbai Indians could have given more opportunities for the talented right-hander.
