    What an infitessimally pointless discussion.
    There are thousands upon thousands whom are for all intents and purposes as bad as each other. If you wanted to manufacture a worst, you might as well pick names out of a hat.

    I didn't say that we are doing it now, I said we used to do it. I meant when does it end as an overall summary of my thoughts on that policy.

    When i think of a 'plodder' all i can think of is Angus Fraser, i think my take on the word is different from the camel's

    OT was Richard Rash's mate called Harry Hasty?

    But there is a definitive worst - Benjamin Aislabie.

    Haha, all those guys play club cricket in Auckland. Greg Loveridge, Mark Haslam, Kerry Walmsley. Haslam bats 11 even in club, the mighty DeGroen came from my club in Auckland, Cornwall. Best fieldsman, batsman ever.

    Matthew Bell (quite useful, but changed his setup every delivery he faced, + he stole a pie off me once!)

    What about Devon Malcolm? I remember that bloke was in and out of the England side. Couldnt bat at all and was a pretty ordinary bowler too.

    9-57 against SA when they made the mistake of bouncing him in the head.

    Explosively quick when he wanted to be, but haemorrhaged runs like there was no tomorrow.

    Still, at least he actually had a neck, unlike the neckless wonder - Gladstone Small.

    Others who competed despite physical impairment - Lou Vincent aka Chinchilla, Chinny Chin Chin.. weighs 75kgs - 25 of which is in his chin.

    He had one thing that no-one else in the domestic set-up had - raw pace. The "You Guys is History" 9-57 was just special, it's a shame there wasn't someone around to mentor/guide him to a consistent level of performance.

    Yes i know he took once big haul of wickets but on the whole i think he was a plodder of the highest order.

    He took a 10-for at Port-Of-Spain, too.
    He wasn't a one-performance wonder. Though I don't really think it would have been possible to make him much better than he was. Still, Raymond Illingworth contributed to making him worse every bit the way he helped Hick.
