    Me vs Greystanes 2004-2005 was pretty well the worst ever seen I think. Thank Christ it aint on YouTube.

    I thought Dhoni was remarkably good for a wicketkeeper.

    Alastair Cook too is actually a semi-capable bowler who bowled a decent bit in his first couple of seasons for Essex.

    Mark Boucher and Ajay Ratra on the other hand...

    Neil Fairbrother was pretty diabolical when I saw him bowl in 2001.

    Owais Shah has to be the worst bowler I've ever seen of those who their captains apparently take their bowling seriously.

    Though, Keiron Pollard (the crap KP) is also supposed to be an allrounder but his bowling was DIRE in NZ in the last series - come to think of it so was his batting... why do we pick that guy again...?

    Lou Vincent v Australia was rather poor IIRC. Got the treatment.

    Harsh imo

    iirc in the midst of an onslaught he came on and bowled either a maiden, or conceded 1 run, something like that. He was then given a second over which conceded 20 including 3 Mussey 6s

    Unlike some of the joke options brought up in this thread LV is a genuine part-timer though, bowls around 120kph and vaguely accurate

    I recall MoYo bowling v NZ in 2000/01 when a test was meandering to a draw (I think) now he was dire, under 100kph and actually bowled a double-bouncer

    Lou had a good first over. Should have opened the bowling in the game.

    Remember Adam Gilchrist bowling 1.3 overs in the Prime Ministers XI vs the Windies a few years back. Came on after Dan Marsh stood on the ball and rolled his ankle so couldnt finish the over. First three balls were reasonable then got hit for a six in his next over by Darren Ganga.
