    Worst World Cup winner

    Okay I was doing this exciting quiz on Sporcle (yeah I know how to live on a Saturday night),and looking at some of the names I thought that a few were a bit crap.

    So who is the worst IYHO. Trying to think there career over all and in the particular World Cup, for instance Veletta was ****e, but he did hit a few decent innings to help Oz win their totally undeserved title in '87, so think you can rule him out.

    Greg Dyer was pretty **** too (still bitter). Pramodya Wickramasinghe might be in with a shout, as may Kirti Azad, Sresanth the last name on that list also maybe tempting.

    Oh and yes I do realise that an they're all better than any Englishman because they've actually won one.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Ahh was just talking about 50 over ones, I'm guessing t-20 would give us a fair few options, Lumb won FFS.

    Munaf had a decent World Cup, and Harby has taken over 400 Test wickets.

    India 83 was a side chock full of mediocrity with a couple of genuine stars. That team was the worst WC winning side by a mile

    I was kind of interested in your view on Dyer as I can't really remember anything about him apart from the catch that got old poor Mike Gatting, and set back England ODI cricket 20 years. Was he a decent glovesman?

    Decent if he could have two grabs at it and play under the one-bounce-one-hand rule maybe....

    Ridiculously one-eyed post.

    Munaf Patel for all the jokes about his fitness was actually a pretty decent ODI bowler and was good in that World Cup.
    Harbhajan wasn't a bad ODI bowler - certainly wasn't any worse than Peter taylor who was in the Aussie world cup wining team of 1987 or Shastri who was in India's 83 squad.

    The only one genuinely gash in India's 2011 squad was Sreesanth.

    Nah Nehra was gash. But he bowled well in the semi somehow against Pakistan.

    Did you ever see Parthiv Patel play? Now that was a genuine Hobbit. Chawla more like a dwarf.

    These guys would be a part of a Hobbits and Dwarves XI:

    S Tendulkar
    P Patel
    R Powar
    P Chawla
