    Worst bowler to take n or more wickets in Tests?

    200 - Ishant Sharma
    400 - Harbhajan Singh
    800 - Muttiah Muralitharan

    with Murali at least you can make the case that he might be the best bowler with 800 wickets
    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

    Just added him to have some non-Indian representation.

    tbf the club isn't that big in itself

    A better list could be identifying worst bowlers to 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, and 800

    That way you will find non indian representation as well and would be a slightly bigger list too

    Kapil Dev a better bowler than Harbhajan ? Never saw the former but know it is hard to compare spinners/seamers.

    Andy Caddick worth a shout for the 200 + section. I never rated him that highly, similar bowler to Ishant in many ways.

    How many wickets do part-timers with long careers like Sachin, Hooper and Jayasuriya have? They're good shouts.

    Hooper 114 wickets at 49. Very good shout as a bowler. He was a really useful batsman though.

    He is up there, better than Harbhajan though for me.

    Harbhajan, Anderson and Dev are a tier below the rest of the 400 + club.

    People who diss JimmyA haven't watched him bowl in the last 5 years.

    He's a magnificent bowler.

    It seems like you just plucked 420 because you wanted to pick Anderson.
