    Sehwag's from todays wasn't much better considering how much he had already scored from the over.

    Sehwag should be excluded from this thread.

    Have a vague memory of a Michael Slater slash outside off (off a wide maybe?) in India that led him to getting dropped the first time. Pretty awful, however typically Slater-esque.

    MEW reverse sweep was amusing.

    Ol' Warney must have done some bad shots in his time. Probably dozens in a night.

    Haha, just realised Rob has Mark Waugh's reverse sweep on youtube. Made all the better by the fact that Boycott was commentating at the time.

    Reckon in terms of 'holy ****, that cost us the game' shots, hard to top Damien Martyn's lofted square drive against the Saffers in '94. It was a **** situation for him to be in and no doubt he didn't deserve to be ostracised in the way he was but geez...
