    Cricketers with dodgy stance

    There should be so many of them though these 5 top my list.
    Any others?

    Chanderpaul,
    Michael Yardy,
    Clayton Lambert,
    Kris Srikanth,
    Ian Healy
    Rohit Sharma is the most hyped cricketer ever...

    Bell was the one I thought of too. Adam Bacher, maybe. Had the biggest back and across step.

    Sherwin Campbell.

    Didn't have a dodgy stance by all means but the guy shuffled his feet back and forth so many times he inevitably was out of position to play the ball. Usually ended up nicking to McGrath by that stage.

    My personal favourite. I remember he tried a square stance once against Warne, but the delivery came so much faster that he changed to a straight one. Then he tried it against Mark Waugh, and the ball hit the edge of the bat and it went straight to Junior, who took the catch. I've seen him do that against Warne yet again, and it worked. He even did a reverse-sweep in that stance against Giles!

    Agreed re. Chanderpaul -- while I'm a fan of his, he's not exactly one of your classically elegant batsmen!

    Chanderpaul's so strange in that he has spells where he changes his stance, sometimes he's perfectly normal, sometimes really exaggerated.

    No-one, incidentally, surely, can beat Peter Willey in the latter part of his career in that regard.

    Herschelle Gibbs, now similarly has a Shivnarine esque stance and itís probably more exaggerated than Chanderpaulís currently is.

    Daniel Vettori has a very strange stance - rather hunched over for a tall man.

    Former England 'keeper Alan Knott had a very square on stance - quite effective but memorable many years later.

    I always think Ganguly and Ed Joyce look really odd when they bat though they're not too abnormal.

    Mal Loye has a pretty un conventioanl approach due to the positioning of his top hand as well.

    Larry Gomes had a bizarre stance at one stage, IIRC, think it was latterly in his career.
