    The Bad Shot Hall of Fame

    As inspired by Suresh Raina's wild charge to Jeetan Patel on 0 with India needing 100 to win in a Test match with 6 wickets remaining. Missed the ball by about 4 inches and clean bowled. Photo included.

    Definitely deserved. Couldn't hope for the inaugural entry to be awarded to a more fitting ****.

    Haddin's charge to Philander (I think) during Australia's 47 all out.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Haddin's one, definitely.

    How about Shane Warne on 99 holing out to deep midwicket off Vettori in the last over of the day in Perth 2001?

    Misbah's scoop in the T20 finals 2007 has to take the cake.

    For some reason I can only think of English ones...

    Mike Gatting's reverse sweep as England were cruising to a World Cup win in '87.

    David Gower's flick to fine leg in the last over (was it last ball even?) before lunch in the Ashes test in 1990/91.

    I guess leaves don't count, but Strauss's last onfield act as a test player was up there.

    I think Tino Best has a contender, doesn't he?

    Seem to remember Ramps charging Warne and getting stumped by a mile. Got dogs abuse for that - think it was the 2001 Ashes.

    Shaun Tait walking across his stumps, only to be bowled by Harmison at Trent Bridge 2005 was pretty dreadful.

    New Zealand needing 6 runs to tie from the final ball of a World Series Cup match in Melbourne. Against the gentle medium pace of Trevor Chappell, Brian McKechnie plays a perfect forward defense.
