3 worst Test batsmen of all time
Cricket is a unique game as it is probably the only sport where you have to pull of a skill even though one might be exceptionally bad at it. By that we mean, tail enders having to bat even though they might be absolute slouches with the willow.
We are always obsessed with ranking the best batsman of all time, therefore we thought to flip it up a bit and bring to the fore the 3 worst batsmen in the history of Test Cricket. So here goes;
1) Chris Martin (71 tests; 123 runs; 2.36 average; 12* highest score; 36 ducks; 7 pairs) – There is only one winner when it comes to the worst batsman of all time. Of all the times he batted in tests, Martin reached double figures just once.
2) Courtney Walsh (132 tests; 936 runs; 7.54 average; 30* highest score; 43 ducks; 4 pairs) – There is no doubt that Walsh was one of the fiercest fast bowlers to have graced the game, but the same cannot be said about his batting. The big man holds the wooden spoon when it comes to scoring the most ducks in Tests.
3) Bhagwath Chandrasekhar (58 Test; 167 runs; 4.07 average; 22 highest score; 23 ducks; 4 pairs) – The polio in his arm worked wonderfully for Chandra when it came to bamboozling the batsmen with his unorthodox action. However, the same condition hampered his batting and therefore he finds himself in this list.
