Sri Lankan left-arm spinner Roger Wijesuriya has a claim to being the most toothless bowler in Test history. He played four Tests between 1982 and 1986, and had a strike rate of a wicket every 586 balls. On average it took Wijesuriya 97 overs to take a wicket. In other words, if he bowled at both ends throughout a five-day Test, the opposition would be only four down at the end of the match ... and they would have scored 1355 runs. He made more impression earlier in his career when he took 25 wickets in an U19 series against Pakistan.
