    Worst Send Off in Cricket?

    With a lot of people retiring and, in their final game, not making a valuable addition to their stats (ie scoring runs/taking wickets), I pondered and wondered if there were any players that made a great contribution in their final game, any thoughts?


    EDIT: would prefer Tests to ODI/T2o, but either is fine. If we were going to compare then tests would take preference.

    test matches or ODIs?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Are you looking for the best last test or worst? Title says one but post says another.

    Greg Chappell made 182 in his last Test (to better his 108 in his first Test)

    Bill Ponsford made 266 in his last Test (to better his 110 in his first Test)

    Or if you're looking at worst, Kim Hughes making a pair after resigning the captaincy at only 30

    Well surely Andrew Sandham's 325 in his last Test wins this one...

    Doesn't count as it was a 9-day test

    I also rate an innings higher if they knew it was their last Test (like Chappell), otherwise we might rate Jason Gillespie's 201*
