    Most Injury Prone

    Who are the most injury prone cricketers?
    We all know that bowlers and in particular fast bowlers have the highest frequency of injuries, but who is the most injury prone batsman, all rounder, umpire

    Gillespie has to be up there for the bowlers.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Hard to go past Cairns for all-rounder, he has missed more tests since his debut than he has played.

    You can't exclude Zaheer and Nehra's names while talking about injuries, it's definitely their trademark...

    New Zealand fast, fast-medium or medium-fast bowlers in general have a habit of getting injured. Cairns was easily the first person to come to mind when I read the thread title, too. Imagine what kind of stats he'd have with regards to runs/wickets if he'd actually played every game he was out injured for...
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    No-one, and I mean no-one, will ever be as injury-pone as Bruce Reid. Neil Foster came close but geez, his back troubles were the stuff of legends..............and MANY bar-room jokes.

    Richard Johnson, Andrew Caddick, Darren Gough, Jason Gillespie for the bowlers (plus any Somerset bowler of the past year or two), and Nasser Hussain when he played and Graeme Thorpe for all their broken fingers!! Trescothick too, he's had a few.

    Alex Tudor is a great unfulfilled talent because of injuries as well, I feel.

    Doc, what happened to Brett? I seemed to remember he was quite a talent...

    Chew has no bones, he runs in like fine jelly in quicksand...

    Honorable mentions : Dion Nash, Geoff Allott, Matt Bulbeck
