    Worst fielder atm in international cricket

    I say Ashish Nehra.....

    If anyone could contend with Ashish for this honour, I'd sure like to hear his name.

    Reon King was pretty bad when he was around. McCullum has dropped a few sitters, but is not the worst overall.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Yep, no doubt Ashish Nehra

    Strange though, he's not very fat or unfit, but i just think he is lazy.

    He's a guy who is pretty bad, but no doubt can improve.

    Agreed, Nehra is pretty shocking, but could definately improve. I agree hes just a bit lazy, nothing to do with his coordination or reflexes (although, if I were captain I wouldnt put him in slip lol:rolleyes: )

    Ok.

    I'm getting sick of all these negative threads. Stop creating them please - it gives off a bad impression to all.

    Cheers,

    Andre.

    whats wrong with this thread Andre? It being 'negative' firstly does not make sense and secondly there is nothing wrong with it. Is there are rule on cricketweb that 'negative' sounding threads are not allowed?

    Phil Tufnell used to be pretty bad, and so was Saeed Anwar. Also, Imran Khan.

    This is a cricket forum right...? We have to discuss everything positive and negative! Pls don't moderate everything.

    VVS Laxman (as good a batter he is), still fields very badly. He dropped 4 (or was it 5) catches in that finall game of the TVS cup

    Worst fielder? Ganguly. I doubt Nehra will ever get close to Sourav in this respect.

    *Takes this as a compliment*

    My fielding is on the inconsistent side of variable.

    I've seen him running around under skiers with his hands outstreched in front of him with his fingers pointing up in the air and then missing the ball by miles. His general fielding in England a few years ago was worse than appauling, and we had Nehra there too...
