    Worst capitulations in recent times ?

    My top three worst batting performance in recent times :

    1.England Vs Aus - Adelaide - 2006

    2.India Vs Eng - Mumbai - 2006

    3.India Vs pak - Bangalore - 2005

    All 3 were shamelessly timid capitulations on decent batting surfaces w/o a fight - with no apparent devil either in the wicket or in the opposing team bowling composition

    I have excluded WI (post 1999) , B'desh and Zimbabwe (post 2002) from this list

    NZ v Australia, Eden Park 2005 (Brett Lee 3-5 from 5 overs I think it was)

    And we've had a couple of disasters against Pakistan and particularly Shoaib too.

    I'm not sure that this is recent but the best collapse ever was Australia against Pakistan in the late 70's. Admittedly they were Pakerless but they went from 105-3 to 108 all out.

    are you ref to Melbourne 1979 Sarfraz spell of 7 wickets for 1 run - then Aus slumped from 305 for 3 to 310 all out - collapse yes but not surrender

    Eng, NZ and India seem to do it a fair bit too often.

    They do, but the West Indies are the collapse kings IMO, particularly in ODIs. It gets to the point where you feel reasonably confident if you take a wicket and get the Windies to 4/200 chasing 250, they collapse so often.

    Haha yes the old calypso collapso. Its somewhat funny unless you're a WI supporter, or put money on them.
