    Tapash Baisya is without doubt by far the worst bowler ever to achieve consistent selection in any international side. Mohammad Sami, statistically at least, is easily the worst current bowler to gain a regular place in a decent Test side.

    I'd say Bangladesh alone have regularly selected worse bowlers than Baisya. He's not great, but he's not the worst they've produced either.

    Andre Adams for worst all-rounder?
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Worst batsman: Saman Jayantha (although he's now been dropped again, thankfully), possibly Lou Vincent.
    Worst bowler (assuming Tests): Ashish Nehra or Mohammad Sami

    Worst batsman: in Tests, I think Boeta Dippenaar comes closest to being always there and nearly always bad.
    Worst bowler: apart from Ashless Giles, who is sometimes pretty decent, I can't remember seeing to much good coming out of the Windies pace (laughing) stocks. As an individual bowler, it has to be Naved-ul-Hasan (in Tests, again).

    I am amazed at the number of people rating Sami as such. (Not that i disagree)

    Less than a year back he was being bracketted with the best

    I honestly reckon Sami is alright. Not amazing by any means, but certainly not horribly bad.

    Well look at the year GIles has had and the stick he's getting.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
