Mohammed Ashraful, without a doubt. The way he scuppered the vaunted South African bowling on Saturday was a treat to watch. His powerpacked knock of 87 was not only instrumental in Bangladesh posting a commendable 251, but provided his team with the necessary impetus. Highly innovative and cheeky, Ashraful sent the South African bowlers on a leatherhunt, gliding, glancing and driving beautifully. Pollock and company had no answer to his calculated onslaught and looked hapless.
