    Most inconsistent player

    For me the list of most inconsistent cricketers are:

    Ajit Agarkar
    Robert Key
    Ramnaresh Sarwan
    Brett Lee

    Team: Pakistan

    Afridi is hit six or get out.

    It is a shame for somebody who has lots of natural talent to consistently fail at the international level. If he matured, or went back to the basics of batting, he could develop into a Andrew Flintoff style all-rounder.

    I think Flintoff is a great examplke for somone like Afridi to follow.

    I never though Flintoff would amount to much.

    Virendar Sehwag and inconsistency go hand in hand.

    I wouldn't say Afridi is inconsistent.

    One can be inconsistent if he does well only in patches, and is mediocre rest of the time. Afridi's no good all the time.

    Rather, he's consistently poor.

    And I'm talking purely in the context of batting... I quite like his bowling though.

    NZ has more than its fair share of inconsistent players, McMillan, Astle, Adams...

    From other countries I would have to agree with those already mentioned, particularly Sehwag and Sami.

    Amen to this, too.
    If Afridi was more accurate he could be better than Kumble, and I mean that.

    The most inconsistent player in The World, beyond all question, is Chaminda Vaas.
    One Test-series he'll get 2 for 300, the next he'll get 15 for 300. One ODI he'll get 3 for 24, the next he'll get 1 for 56 or go for 40 off 7 overs.
    None of these players can even remotely compare.

    True, although us NZ supporters remember all too well his spell of 5 wickets for 1 run in one of the ODIs in Pakistan, and he also did something similar (but not quite as dramatic) in the 2nd innings of the Hamilton test last summer.

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