    Ian Botham at Melbourne on the 1986/87 Tour. Bowling at half pace and took 5 for 41 and not a decent delivery amongst them.

    McGrath at Old Trafford in 2005. England on a declaration charge, virtually every dismissal was slogged into the deep.

    Wasn't there a few by Finn circa 2011? I vaguely recall one he took in NZ that was disgusting.

    jason krejza's 8/215 was the jekyll and hyde of five wicket hauls. some genuinely beautiful wicket taking deliveries but absolute pus most of the time. not sure where that would rank in that case

    Woakes took a 6fer against the Aussies in an ODI years ago which was fairly bad.

    omg i love krejza's performance, great theater. gets smashed to hell in his opening spell, career on the line, manages to snag 8 wickets, with a bit of back n forth, finishing strong. rags to riches story with a happy ending. then unfortunately in the sequal he flopped and was never seen again, despite his one wicket in that match being a beautiful ball


    i dont think he ever got 5 for but I remember Shane Lee getting a 4'fa in an ODI which didn't impress me at all, doubt the selectors thought too much of it either because i dont remember him playing for much longer

    I remember that match now you mention it. He bowled pretty well given he was playing on a road at Brisbane.

    Remember him being the leading wicket taker in the 2010-11 ashes after three tests despite bowling really badly. Don't think he took 5 though. The one you're thinking of was against NZ in 2013, I think.

    Phil Edmonds took five cheap wickets on debut against Australia in 1975 - I don't remember any of them but do recall vividly how scathing Trueman and Bailey were about it on TMS both saying he'd bowl much better in the future and take none for plenty

    I vaguely remember that one as well. Not that Trueman and Bailey being scathing was any sort of rarity, but I remember Edmonds' five-for on debut and that the commentators thought he was lucky.
    That was the match where the final day was abandoned because the pitch was damaged by the supporters of some low-life who was doing time, wasn't it?

    Pretty sure he blew away the Australian tail after Hussey and Haddin's bajillion run partnership

    Haha what a match that was. Krejza was on a hattrick twice, once in each innings; Ganguly did a Bradman for his final innings; Ponting returned SRT's run out; and Watson played as third pacer for Australia, with White playing as Jr Watson
