Inspired by a thread in Off Topic, I was wondering who was the worst test cricketer?
But it would be too easy to name people who were called up for a match or two and then sank without trace, or people who played for minnow teams in their early years when they weren't yet test class; and surely there are people from the ancient days whose records are truly atrocious -- trawling StatsGuru for random names would be too easy.
So, out of the cricketers who established themselves in a competitive team and who enough of us have actually watched, who was the worst?
So, some parameters:
Played since 1970 -- that should mean that we aren't going purely by StatsGuru, there will be people here who saw them play
Played a minimum of 10 test matches, (20 for Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, who were all minnows at some stage during this timeframe)
Usual Battle rules: nominations, seconded (nominate as many as you like: seconded names go into the battle)
Deadline for nominations: three days from this post? First battle start Tuesday
