    The worst ever wicket keeper batsman in tests

    That brings David Williams of WI to my memory.

    Any one who had performed worser with the bat??

    Actually, he could bat, but he didn't have a clue against India's spinners in his only couple of tests over there.

    I surprised the usual suspects haven't mentioned Tsolekile yet.

    Not sure.. but it has to be said that the standard in International cricket of keeper batsmen is excellent at the moment IMO.

    Look at Gilchrist, Sangakarrand, McCullum and Boucher for example.. an impressive list.

    He was a very poor keeper but he was very good with the bat. In fact he saved a test for India in RSA scoring 70 plus.

    He had scored a lot and really a lot in domestic cricket. somehow was not able to translate even half of that at the international level.

    I mis-read the purpose of this thread. I thought it was worst keeping skill in an international keeper, for some reason.

    The purpose is to find out the worst wicket keeper batsman only irrespective of his keeping skills.
