    Worst tails ever

    Was watching Funky Miller hit his 43 against the Windies back in '99 and before he got going Hookes described the Australian tail as "4 blokes who should all be at 11"


    to his credit he was barely exaggerating (I miss Hooksey, such fun commentary)

    Adam Dale
    Stuart MacGill
    Funky Miller
    Glen McGrath


    I found this especially funny because around this time you had players like Warne, Reiffel, Dizzy, Bichel and Lee hovering around the team and they were generally solid batsmen with only McGrath being constantly hapless thru the era. Can see why they didn't want to stick with this set up for too long

    What are some other terrible tails like this?


    I feel if Mullally, Tufnell and Malcolm ever played a test together they'd be a shout

    I don't even know who Giddens is but if he's bad enough to push up Mullally and Tuffers he must be crap

    What's even more laughable is comparing it to NZ's no.s 8-10 in that match of Cairns, Nash & Vettori.

    That's a shocker in the OP. From memory though Adam Dale had a fairly sound technique without being a big hitter. Not good enough to be a #8 at that level but not hopeless.

    Giddins definitely a worthy number eleven, and I see Ronnie Irani there too - that is a truly awful lineup

    When Pakistan toured here in 2010 they had an 18-year old Amir at 8 followed by Gul, Kaneria/Ajmal and Asif. Essentialy two #10s and two #11s. Amusingly they out-performed the top six in the first two tests

    ~

    Another: England's Headingley 2009 tail of Swann, Harmison, Anderson, Onions looks pretty ordinary but with Stuart Broad coming in at 7... yeah

    England's bottom six in the last two Ashes Tests back in 2006/07 was Flintoff, Read, Mahmood, Hoggard/Anderson, Harmison, Panesar....that's pretty tripe.

    The current Pakistan team has an absolutely woeful tail.
