Worst Send Off in Cricket?

State Captain
With a lot of people retiring and, in their final game, not making a valuable addition to their stats (ie scoring runs/taking wickets), I pondered and wondered if there were any players that made a great contribution in their final game, any thoughts?


EDIT: would prefer Tests to ODI/T2o, but either is fine. If we were going to compare then tests would take preference.

Greg Chappell made 182 in his last Test (to better his 108 in his first Test)

Bill Ponsford made 266 in his last Test (to better his 110 in his first Test)

Or if you're looking at worst, Kim Hughes making a pair after resigning the captaincy at only 30

In his last test series, Clarrie Grimmett took 34 wickets @ 18.88.

And he was dropped permanently by Donald Bradman after that because he made a comment against captain Bradman during practice, and after that reached his peak years in First Class cricket.
