    Isn't this thread sort of talking about the same thing?

    Surely one can't be horrible and still have a successful test career. Or do you mean people who were horrible but played a lot of test matches?

    Not really. It is supposed to be for players who were mediocre at FC level, but turned out to be gun at test level.

    But he might not play another game, meaning he'll finish with ridiculously good stats.

    Sehwag's not a poor batsman (even if his Test average flatters him hugely) and his First-Class average too is excellent.

    Dire.

    One or two innings of glue-batting (185) won't make him any better, perhaps than Carl Hooper.
