    Who are the Worst International players U've seen?

    there's always a debate as to who is the Best Test or ODI player....so here's something a little different...

    Who do u think are the Worst/least talented Players to have represented their countries in Tests/Odi's??

    Lets keep the selections restricted to the 10 test playing nations only!


    NB: this thread was inspired by something i read at Cricinfo.com about Khaled Mahmud

    "Khaled Mahmud was arguably one of the least talented cricketers ever to captain his country................... But it was during this period that his Test bowling average briefly ballooned above 400 - the worst mark of all time. As Bangladesh's run of failures continued, Mahmud became the target for a hostile crowd, particularly during his final series in charge"

    yeah Mahmud would probably be about the worst.

    in terms of playing for Australia Scott Muller cant bowl and he cant throw?

    Geraint is definitely one of the worst keepers that Ive seen play for one of the major countries although his batting isnt bad.

    Mike Brierley was an abysmal batsman.

    Some of the Aussies in the mid-80s and whilst WSC players were banned were just as horrible e.g. David Ogilvy

    Very cruel on Murphy, he had a lot of potential. Shouldn't have been made captain, but he was better than his record suggests.

    Visu Sibanda, Khaled Mahmud and Blessing Mahwire certainly deserve a mention.

    This guy must be amongst the least successful Test players to have appeared in more than a couple of matches.

    Brian Murphy and Blessing Mahwire dont deserve to get anywhere near this thread.

    Waddington Mwayenga takes the cake for me.

    And current Test Match umpire Asoka De Silva was innocuous as hell at the highest level.

    most of the Bangladeshie's were pretty bad, but looking at the major countries blokes like Scott Mueller, Rikki Clarke, Dave Joseph, Shiv Sunder Das, Mohanty, Adrain Griffith, ed giddins are some of the worst's i've seen in the time i've been watching cricket...

    If you're talking about how bad they were when they played international cricket, and ignoring any improvement since, then there's a few in county cricket at the moment:

    Ian Ward
    Usman Afzaal
    Ryan Sidebottom
    Owais Shah
    Rikki Clarke
    Jim Troughton
    Darren Maddy
    Ed Smith
    Jimmy Ormond

    To name but a few. It's not even worth counting the Bangladeshis and Zimbabweans - these days most of them are worse than players who are just breaking into county sides, let alone international teams.
