And you thought Shoaib was bad

It appears that in the Centurion Test of 2000 (the one that Hansie forfeited SA's innings for a result) Darren Gough was bowling hung over.
When South Africa resumed it soon became clear that the track had lost many of its demons and Lance Klusener and Shaun Pollock scored with ease. They were helped somewhat by Darren Gough not being at his best. "Gough bowled a pile of shite," Hussain recalled. "I knew then that he'd had a few drinks the night before. It was stinking hot, so I decided to punish him by keeping on bowling him."

Man, I love Nasser Hussain. Great captain, great commentator.
