Mohammad Ashraful's the obvious one. James Marshall also played 7 more tests than he should have.

Doesn't appear to be a blatent copy of a thread from Planetcricket either. Weird.
Amjad Khan. Should never have played a Test match, still struggling to work out the logic behind his selection. Steve Harmison also played far too many Test matches.
There's hundreds of players who you could say played international cricket and blatantly shouldn't have, from Fred Tate to Amjad Khan. Players who played loads when they should've only played a bit (ie, those who were consistently preferred to better-qualified candidates) are relatively rare and thus it is, perhaps rather unexpectedly, a vaguely interesting discussion point.
Harmison is of course a good example; Voges is not. Voges if anything should've played more ODIs than he has.
Ian Harvey? I think he deserved to play as many games as he did. He probably doesn't have the best stats, but I can't think of too many bowlers who bowled as well as he can in the last 10 overs of an innings.
