And don't forget :-
John Watkins - 6 overs of utter crap that ever tried to pass for spin.
I remember watching that, he struggled to get the ball on the wicket. It was embarrassing to the stage where you felt sorry for the guy.

The funny thing was, he still managed to make a mark in his only test - as a batsman! He and Massie put on 83 for the ninth wicket in Australia's second innings, giving Pakistan a relatively small target the Australian bowlers could try to defend.

Which they did - thanks to Lillee (stuffed back and all) and Walker.

I used to love that show. Best comedy ever.
the best moment on that show was when they let a "brad bevan" onto the show - not knowing he would one day be the world triathalon champion, he smashed all the records and ran the final course in about 53 seconds - when anything under a minute was previously unheard of!

Peter Toohey? Alan Hurst? Geoff Dymock? Trevor Laughlin? Rick Darling? Phil Carlson? Gary Cosier?

All stars of the 78-79 England tour down under.
Hurst took 43 test wickets @ 27.90 & Dymock took 78 wickets @ 27.12. To suggest they were poor cricketers is ridiculous.

Paul Blocker Wilson is a worthy nomination, but I think Sean Young is the least worthy to wear the baggy green - the guy basically got a game because he happened to be in England at the time.

Wayne Phillips and Craig Matthews are right up there.

Scott Muller deserves it - the ironic thing is the comment "can't bowl and can't throw" was totally deserving.

I didn't suggest they were bad cricketers (other than posting them under this thread). But they aren't household names now are they.

Chris Matthews would have to be my favourite. I think he debuted in the same game as Merv Hughes, both performed badly but only Merv got dropped.

One of those matches was at he home ground and if it wasn't a wide, it was no ball or full toss.
