    Worst Century/High Score

    What's the worst century or high score you've seen where the batsmen was ridiculously lucky the whole inning?. My nomination is this pretty awful innings by Imran Farhat against NZ.

    3rd Test: New Zealand v Pakistan at Napier, Dec 11-15, 2009 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    You can watch a long video series of it on youtube

    New Zealand v Pakistan - 3rd Test Cricket, Day 1, Highlights, (1-7) - YouTube

    Just so many false shots and almost edges

    Worst ive seen is BY FAR Ajay Ratra's hundred.. was against WI iirc. Virtually every boundary he got hit the bat a mile away from the middle. Dont think ive ever seen anyone edging the ball so consistently.

    Honorable mention to Gary Kirsten's double at Durban.... dead boring

    Michael Clarke against South Africa at the SCG in 2009. It was terrible to watch but somehow managed to socre a century.

    Ian Botham was ridiculously fortunate during his 149 at Headingley in '81 - wonderful innings though

    Wasn't a century but Pietersen's 80 v Pakistan in 2010 was as bad an innings by a top player I have seen.

    The first 100 runs of the Strauss 177 at Napier on the last tour to NZ were pretty dire viewing too.

    Wasn't exactly lucky but Eoin Morgan's hundred against India was probably the easiest Test hundred I've ever seen
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Was going to post the Pietersen one. Dreadful innings.

    Wasn't he dropped more than once during that innings, or was that another time during the series? I remember being hugely unimpressed with his that summer.

    Gary Kirsten's 210 vs England in 1998 at Old Trafford. OUCH.

    Would have to admit Mark Taylor's 129 ashes 1997 was awful to watch.

    Fat Gatt's ton in Adelaide on his last tour here was bad. Credit to the bloke, who was a decade past it, but the papers described it as "Mary Mackillop's second miracle".

    what about bowlers.

    Fin's 6fer in Australia was one lucky haul also Starc recently had a very lucky 5 fer vs SA.

    Getting dropped isn't really lucky as much as it's just the opposition being ****.

    Defs the KP one for mine, even though it wasn't a hundred.
