    Odd action

    Which batsmen and bowlers have odd action.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.

    Paul Adams looks like a demented frog.

    KP's technique is a bit strange.

    There was a player called Ken Barnett who played for Lancashire i think who used to bat about half a foot outside leg stump then move across as the bowler bowled.

    There's plenty others, i'm just too lazy to think of them now.

    I think you must mean Kim Barnett who played for Derbyshire and England, had a strange looking stance

    Peter Willey had a very front on stance at the crease when batting

    Barnett played for Gloucs, too, y'know... formed a hell of a useful opening combo with Hancock in ODers...

    And was also for 15 years (until Ed Smith in 2003, Ian Bell in 2004 and Owais Shah in 2005\06) the last right-handed specialist batsman to make 50 on Test debut for England.

    BTW, Chanderpaul had a short time when he was virtually a left-handed Peter Willey.

    Matthew Bell had a wierd stance there for awhile too. Not sure if he still has it.
    Setup out side leg, and moved into line mid-delivery

    The strangest batsman I ever saw (and someone I still emulate in the nets for fun) was former Middlesex batman, John Carr.

    He remodeled his stance and during his famous run he stood square on with both feet facing the bowler. As the bowler started his action he then moved. Unfortunately I cant find any photos.
