    Worst choke ever

    Which is the worst choke ever by a team in your opinion?
    The NZ vs SA match today is high up in the rankings in that.

    I do remember a match in which Kallis and Klusener choked against India in India while chasing an easy target and couldnt chase it even though they had wickets in hand. They hardly scored runs in the end overs, which were mostly bowled by Sehwag. For some reason, couldn't remember exactly which match it is.

    Edit: Lets keep it to the choke as used in cricket terms and do not post pics of chokes

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    This must rank pretty high:
    3rd ODI: West Indies v South Africa at Bridgetown, May 11, 2005 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    3 to win from 7 balls with 4 wickets in hand...

    Are you thinking about the Champions Trophy match in the scorecard below? 1st SF: India v South Africa at Colombo (RPS), Sep 25, 2002 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Just so we're clear, a choke is when a team has a situation which is fairly straightforward and that they really, really should win from and they **** it up, yes?

    There's been a few Chappell/Hadlee ODIs that would be up there.

    Yep, or equally "cannot lose" (in the case of tests).

    Today's T20 and Adelaide 2006 the worst I've ever seen.

    That scorecard makes me laugh every time. Trescothick scores a century in a match in which no other player passes 50 and West Indies from a hopeless position somehow still win the match and the trophy.

    Yes exactly Somerset. From the ball by ball scorecard, I can see that its not that big a choke as I initially assumed. But a choke nevertheless.
