    Biggest all time **** up

    Unsurprisingly both are south africa.

    1999 Klusener running out donald. I remember the shot of cronje's face in the changing rooms after that run out. Did he really care?

    2003 Duckworth/Lewis. Allan Donald(12th Man) said that boje ran on to the pitch to tell klusener they needed another run. Klusener got halfway down and didn't tell boucher. Out they went again.

    There are some others that could make the list that don't involve South Afric. A couple of awful shots (gatting's reverse sweep, Martyn's wild swing) that have, fairly or unfairly, been considered to have cost a team the game. Also, dropped catches like Gibbs (okay, South Africa again) in the '99 WC.

    There's another one. I recall during the second test between Sri Lanka and Australia last year, Sri Lanka looked like they might get a win with only 33 runs left to get and Vaas and Lokuarachchi set at the crease in a vital stand when Vaas did a Ramprakash against Warne and threw his wicket away. After that, Sri Lanka only got 5 more runs and Gillespie and Warne finished them off for a 27 run win and a series victory.

    Had it cost West Indies the game, Pedro Collins wandering backwards over the boundary line having caught Klusener in the deep during the closing stages of the 2003 World Cup game, would have been right up there.

    Same here, Donald has a history of choking, I still remember the final of the Hero Cup SA needed 3 runs from the final over(bowled by Tendulkar) Donald was at one end with Brian Mcmillan. SA Lost the finals, thanks to Donald.

    in the same game, in the last over when someone got caught in the deep by a WI player, the batsmen didnt cross over whilst the ball was in the air. The new batsman then had to try and get the runs to win..silly error

    the 2nd one wouldnt have mattered much anyways, because SA wouldnt have progressed too far from the super six.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    That rings a bell now you mention it. It would have been Sarwan (I think) catching klusener in the deep. May have been Pollock not securing the strike, but I'm not sure.

    IIRC, It was BojÚ who didn't keep the strike, but left it to Ntini.

    It was also Hooper (remember him? ) who took the catch.
