    Battle of the ****e

    We seem to have a lot of ‘battles’ on this forum but usually they are in celebration of fantastic cricketers or the best movies, singles, albums et cetera yet the un so untalented are seemingly left in the cold. I considered it would be rather refreshing to find out who the forum votes as the worst cricketer to ever play at international level.

    Wonder cap wonders are exempt, to be truly worthy of the ****e category the player would need to have played at least five test or ten ODI in the post WW2 era. Raison d'ętre’s are not needed, words such as Jehan Mubarak pretty much sum up everything we need to know.

    I’ll think 32 names would be sufficient anything to proceed to the battle. A little help with selecting the battles would be appreciated or carrying the mantle whilst TT Boy is away (Silentstriker?). But post your suggestions and if they are ****e enough, they are in the battle.

    Couple of names to get the ball rolling…

    1. Mohammad Sami
    2. Jehan Mubarak
    3. Ian Salisbury
    4. Devon Malcolm
    5. Gareth Batty
    6. Daren Ganga
    7. Rikki Clarke
    8. Ronnie Irani
    9. Asoka De Silva
    10. Clive Eksteen
    11. Adam Bacher
    12. Matthew Bell
    13. Bill Playle
    14. Nicky Boje
    15. Chris Adams
    16. Ian Ward
    17. Kabir Ali
    18. Richard Dawson
    19. Tino Best
    20. Kirti Azad
    21. Mohammad Akram
    22. Aashish Kapoor
    23. Fazl-e- Akbar
    24. Lakshmipathy Balaji
    25. Noel McGregor
    26. Murray Chapple
    27. Robin Peterson
    28. Mark Ramprakash
    29.

    If ur talking of the worst players of international cricket, i would definitely add Salvi to that list. Correct me if im wrong, but wasn't Salvi the same guy who tried to mo0del himself on Glenn McGrath...but it all just went horribly wrong!

    Ian Salisbury? 15 wickets @ 70-odd apiece IIRC.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Well find a list of everyone who played > five tests and 80% of people on there would make it.

    Devon Malcolm.

    I liked him, he had his moment in the sun against SA but c'mon, he was terrible.

    One of the least effective long test careers in history.

    EDIT- TBH, this list could almost exclusively be Bang or Zim players
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits
