Default Who is the most overated player in the world?

Lets discuss who and why you think the person you chose is the most overrated player in the world.

I would like to nominate 2 players..and they are quite 'out there' choices, but hear me out:

GD McGrath

Some reviewers noticed he hasnt taken a wicket since 2000 through his skill, and just purely down to the luck of the batsman playing a poor shot.

Well on the assumption that we can allow Glenny boy the privilege of having taking one skillful wicket this century (just to make the averages work better), McGrath therefore averages 4506 with the ball in tests at a SR of over 11500.

Surely no bowler has ever been this bad

VVS Laxman

when only taking into consideration the Test innings he has failed to score more than 2 runs in, he only has a highest score of 2 and averages only 0.25.

A waste of space in my book.

I have to disagree with you Logen,
Both Nasser Hussain and Andrew Strauss are good players, In fact Nas broke into the team in quite a late stage and so did Strauss.
I will say Ashley Giles because he's a nothing player, and sometime i think that I can play better than him.
For Pakistan, Yasir Hameed looks to me to be overrated as there are serious flaws in his technique. Nafis Iqbal is also an overrated player in my belief!
