    worst players on the international circuit?

    im intrested to find out who many people believe to be the worst players currently in any of the international test sides, however for the purpose of the argument and actually making this an intresting survey we will exclude zimbabwe, bangladesh and that shocking west indies second string that played in sri lanka today, so dont mention any of those.

    who do you believe is the worst batsman? ( please only mention proper batsmen, no all-rounders or tailenders )

    worst bowler? ( again no mentions of batsmen who bowl a bit please.)

    do tell....

    Why waste so many keystrokes and all that chin-scratching energy when you could have just typed "England"?

    Because it's not necessarily always the case.

    For instance I rate Aftab Habib and Usman Afzaal VERY highly.

    tbh i didnt think afzaal was that bad, certainly not in odis, however habib was a disgraceful selection.

    I rate them 1 and 2 all time respectively, just pipping Imran Khan and Javed Miandad.

    Mostly they are, yes.

    Trescothick can be regularly be quite entertaining though.

    when he hangs his bat out to dry and runs Mcgraths deliveries into the hands of slip for some catching practice.

    I actually think Giles is reasonably fair in terms of picking the worst regular specialist bowler in the world outside of the three worst nations. Someone like Mohammad Sami or one of the New Zealand seamers in the recent series against Australia are probably worse though.
