    One Test Blunders

    Top of my head I'm thinking Leon Garrick, Brandon Bess...

    Matt Nicholson nearly was nearly a batting hero in his only test but ended up starting the late evening flurry of wickets that cost us the game at the MCG in the '98 ashes

    Fred Grace (brother of W.G.) and Jack MacBryan.

    Fred made a 4 ball 'pair' while Jack remains the only player from anywhere to play Test cricket but not bat, bowl or make a catch or a stumping.

    A bit harsh on Nicholson. His bowling (particularly in the second innings - 3 for 56) hardly qualifies him for a "blunder" tag!

    It was just a pretty random selectio iirc, but yeah, in terms of what we got out out him it could have been a lot worse.


    I often mention Bryce McGain (edit: and tony p has anyway), but him and Simon Kerrigan definitely count in terms of playing a single, dreadful test even though they were pretty reasonable selections (fitness notwithstanding for McGain, I think)

    On the flipside, you've got Andy Ganteaume who batted once, made 112 and never played again. Retired to preserve his average, I presume

    MacBryan was a temperamental sort of bloke, didn't help his cause. There is a great book by David Foot called Cricket's Unholy Trinity which features MacBryan, about 40 pages on him.

    There's got to be a lot of disastrous one Test experiments from India in the '90s, especially if they were thrown to the wolves overseas. Can't think of any right now though.

    He was picked because Ryan Sidebottom was injured the day before the Test, and (according to Vaughan some years later) Matthew Hoggard was too hung over from a benefit function to be called up.
