....... whose selection made some amount of (however little) sense?
Different question to the one about who was worst out of Wayne Larkins, David Capel, Eddie Hemmings, Neil Williams, Derek Pringle, Ian Botham, Dermot Reeve, John Emburey, Neil Foster, Mike Watkinson, Ben Hollioake, Gavin Hamilton, Chris Schofield, Usman Afzaal, James Ormond, Richard Dawson, Anthony McGrath, Gareth Batty, Geraint Jones, Liam Plunkett, Ian Blackwell, Sajid Mahmood, Darren Pattinson and Amjad Khan. That one was based on who was just most bad full-stop and who least deserved their Test selection (none of them did nor came close to). This one is more who was worst once they got to Test level.
And Salisbury not included on the basis that if he was there'd be no point even asking.
Excluded are other players who can be classed as failures in Test cricket overall but who certainly had very short periods where they briefly looked the part: Devon Malcolm, Philip Tufnell, Mark Ramprakash, Graeme Hick, John Crawley and Stephen Harmison.
