    When did he play the reverse? I remember his little paddle sweep off Hauritz but not a reverse.

    Reckon that must be the shot they were referring to. He got grief all summer long for that one.

    It really is hard to imagine a more incomprehensible shot by a top class batsman than Mark Waugh's reverse sweep.

    Kallis backing away and trying to drive a McGrath yorker in the 07 semi-final looked pretty dumb.

    Love to see some more of the 'perfectly executed...but what were they hoping for' variety.
    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    Micheal Clarke left a straight ball against Kiwis. I think it was either Oram or Bond, that was pretty hilarious!

    Didn't he nick out in the second dig? I remember him chasing a wide one from Southee and nicking it, having squirted one through before and playing and missing a few times. A bad shot no doubt, but not as awful as his charge and nick v SA.

    KP's pre-meditated paddle to Hauritz was right up there in 09 as well.

    Some of the other shots in this thread might be funny, or not well executed, but for bad surely we're talking irresponsible, poorly thought, let the team down etc. Not Tino Best trying to crash Ashley Giles for 12, just because it's on youtube.
