There are always long debates over who is the world's best batsman but have you ever wondered which batsman has the lowest stats? Chris Martin from Newzealand can be seen to be fighting hard to make it to the top for the lowest scores ever. Let's have a look.

Scores Anyone??

The 41-year-old appeared 71 times for New Zealand's test team. Often regarded as the worst batsman ever, Chris has scored just 123 runs from 104 innings. His highest was 12 against Bangladesh.

Martin is known as Phan Tom for his comical inability with the bat. Martin's batting gets more publicity than his bowling. He also belongs to a select group of cricketers whose number of wickets are more than the runs scored.

Chris Martin was signed up with Aerosport and he proudly displays the logo when he comes out on the crease to bat. As it was said that he was too embarrassed to bring any batting gear to practice so he only bowled.

In case some of you might be wondering why he was kept in the team when he couldn't bat, well this guy is a ninja when it comes to balling. Martin has been a determined bowler from the very beginning. He was the third highest wicket-taker in the history of New Zealand's test cricket.

Chris is one of the best fast-bowlers New Zealand has given to world cricket. He has been in and out due to injuries but has been able to overcome it and become one of the strike bowlers for the team. He has a total of 233 wickets in 71 matches. Bowling, that is what he will be remembered for.

Martin had to shoulder the mantle for New Zealand's bowling attack and he did it with ease. He was also awarded the inaugural Sir Richard Hedley medal at the New Zealand cricket awards.
