    Haha, my flatmate who doesn't know a lot about cricket remarked when England were 4 down that it would be funny if England didn't make enough runs for the West Indies to bat again.

    I told him there was no chance of that happening. Whoops.

    2001 Vs India 2nd Test

    Great partnership, but the Aussies had no plan B. Even that was OK, but the batting in the 2nd innings was a disgrace at least 5 batsman through away their wickets
    You know it makes sense.

    In my time it would have been the mid-80s test at Perth when we were rolled by the Windies for 76 in an England-like performance. Other contenders would be Sydney 94 v SA and the Perth test v Windies in 92-93 when we rolled over in 3 days after losing in Adelaide by 1 run. AB got his first ever pair that test, Taylor was dropped for the game and we just didn't give a yelp.

    These two from the summer of pain back in 94/95 will always have a place in my cold, blackened shrivelled heart, as they permanently set me on a path of low expectations.

    An absolute towelling by a Windies side already in decline. They could've whipped us with about 5 players on the field. As it was, not even the scorecard could truly do justice to just how abjectly we surrendered.

    2nd TEST: New Zealand v West Indies at Wellington, 10-13 Feb 1995

    We followed that by becoming the first country in the world to surrender first a test match and then a series to Sri Lanka, while playing at home. I know that by this stage the Lankans had the core of a very good side playing, but to be hammered in conditions that would've been so alien to a very young opposiiton side will forever remain a pathetic effort.

    And then you woke up?

    Can't really think of to many specific games.

    The test series vs Aus in Aus in 2005. So many promising signs ... cant recall ever being so dissapointed.

    India 1998 was full of pretty awful performances but Delhi 1996 was as abject a surrender as I've seen from an Aussie side. Nayan Mongia batted well but not 152 runs well.

    Haha, despite being only 10 at the time I distinctly remember that Junior Murray century in the first one you mention. That was appalling! I think he scored virtually all his runs on the leg side.

    The capitulation by our batsman from a winning position against England last year would surely rank up there for NZ.

    I think the one that probably hurt the most was not a typical woeful batting performance, but one where we weren't far from winning. Our test team was the best it had been in a while, we were 1-0 up against SA and in line for a fantastic (and first against them?) series win. Could we close it out? No we couldn't.

    Singapore has suffered several legendary (legendary for us, that is, though most opposition teams don't in fact remember the games at all) defeats, but the two worst were losing to an Australian rugby team - many of whom had never played cricket before - and an Indian high-school 2nd XI.

    I've been thinking about this thread for the last few days (in amongst more important stuff!) and I keep coming back to the 94/95 season. The worst thing is it started off so promisingly on the tour of South Africa. Unbelievably, with Matthew Hart leading the way, we won the first of the three test series in South Africa then it all went horribly wrong. We lost our way in the next two tests; Fleming, Nash and Hart got done for smoking pot at Paarl, then once we got back to NZ the wheels well and truly came off. The worst thing of all was the fact it was our centenary season - the rare highlight in the second half of that season was that we made the final of our own centenary tournament. Throw in the debacle surrounding the drunk coach, Geoff Howarth, being replaced short-term by John Reid, and it was a shocking season.

    Remarkable that Darrin Murray was pretty much our best batsman in both of those Tests.
