    Worst ever Test match you have seen

    Has to be Pakistan's two day Test match aagainst Australia in Sharjah in 2002. I have never ever seen such an uncompetitive match involving two Test teams (not counting Zimbabwe and Bangladesh).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    the worst match i have seen was the second test at hamilton between india and new zealand in 2002 in which the highest individual score in the whole match was 39, even though it was quite close in the end and gave new zealand the series win, it was a terrible match from a spectators point of view, the worst thing was i was at the ground.

    India v Pakistan, Ahmedabad, 1986/7.

    Not only was it a draw from the first ball but the scoring rate was atrocious. 130 were scored on the first day in 82 overs, 110 on the last. Younis Ahmed batted nearly a full day for 34*

    Btw, SM Gavaskar's 10000 was in the same test.

    funny that this should come up, that innings of Haydens is my favourite test innings of all time, he batted for over 7 hours for that 119 in temperatures of around 50 degrees celcuis, absolutely brilliant....

    Yeah I will agree with that.

    I doubt I would have survived without falling to heat exhaustion, and I'm a pretty fit guy.

    I suppose Liam will put the Test where Harmison took 7-12 at Kingston or where England whipped his team in two dayys at Headingly?

    Take your pick from most of the 5 drawn tests between India & England in the 1981/82 series. The run rate and over rate were both dire. The thought of India sending down about 12 overs an hour to Boycott & Tavare scoring at 2-an-over still gives me the shivers.

    Australia v West Indies at the 'Gabba, I actually paid good money to see that game. It lasted a little under 7 sessions. If it wasn't for Chanderpaul's superb 63* (I think that was his score) I would have punched somebody. Lara was dreadful, and that's who I wanted to see bat.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    The match where Sri Lanka got the highest test score and India got 500+ was pretty pointless.

    South Africa vs England at Durban 1998/99 when Kirsten hit 275 and Hussain bowled for the only time in Tests.

    I actually found the Sydney test last summer between Australia and India pretty awful. It wasn't so much that it was a terrible match, because there were some great individual performances, but that it never looked like there would be a result on a pitch like that and it was such an anti-climax after a great series.
