    Best player to play only one Test?

    1, Stuart Law - scored 54* and got left out and never played again

    2, Andy Ganteaume who scored 112 on Test debut for the WI (he's from T&T) and never played Test cricket. Apprantly he was too slow.

    3, Rod Redmond of NZ who played one Test and scored a 100 and 50 in his first Test and never played Test cricket again.

    I put Law in there as we know he wont play Test cricket again.

    yeah.Rodney Redmond had amazing promise...

    I beleive he had problems with his eyes.Didn't like glasses,so got contact lenses.Had problems with them to,and left the NZ side.I think (THINK)he playerd a couple more seasons with wellington,but after that,just disappeared.

    Stuart Law wins hands down.

    Not only would he have played 100+ tests for most other nations he would have captained them aswell.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I must question how people are certain Law would've played 100 Tests for any other International side.

    Who's to say he wouldn't have been a complete flop?!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Law for me.

    But only because he played for Essex, probably.

    No, for once I think your bias might be causing you to speak some sense... S Law in my opinion too...
