    Ajay Ratra... scored the worst test hundred ever
    Dodda Ganesh
    Vijay Bhardwaj

    These three stand out among a sea of excrement

    The last line of his Cricinfo profile is pretty damning

    "But he could never really make it big in the international arena what with the lack of penetration and his tendency to spray the ball all over being obvious shortcomings."

    Vijay Bharadwaj was a decent enough bits and pieces player for India. IIRC he was the man of the series for the series in SA where Joshi bowled 10 overs for 6 runs.

    Sujith Somasundar was especially bad. Remember him batting against Mcgrath in the Titan cup and having no clue.

    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    This would be a lot more fun if you hadn't have limited us to Test cricket.

    In fact, how about playing "Six degrees of Sachin Tendulkar?"

    You need to find the shortest route between any current cricketer and Sachin, through matches where players have played on the same side. In fact, I think this deserves its own thread. I wonder how many connections I'll have to make between me and Sachin...?

    I can manage:

    Tendulkar played with Pollock for the Mumbai Indians
    Pollock played with Amla for South Africa
    Amla played with Mark Sanders for KwazuluNatal
    I played with Sanders once in an Exeter Evening League match

    That gives me a Sachin number of 4.

    (EDIT - Not three. Can't count.)

    A friend of mine bowled one ball to Sachin during practice (courtesy well connected father). I have played many a school game with the said friend. Gives me a Sachin number of 2.

    According to Pickup's example that's just a 1, Chubb

    Against doesn't count - against is too easy.

    Has to be with!

    Can't get that close with. Nowhere near that close.

    OT, by this criteria I have one degree of seperation with Osama Bin Laden!
    I met and interviewed Peter Arnett, who met and interviewed Bin Laden! Crazy.

    I played in a school team.
    One of my teammates played reps with the Randwick-Petersham grade wicketkeeper.
    That wicketkeeper has played with Simon Katich.
    Katich played with Irfan Pathan.
    Pathan played with Tendulkar.
