Sanath Jayasuriya's decision to cancel his Warwickshire Twenty20 contract - without even informing the club - is the not the first time an overseas signing has failed to impress the Edgbaston faithful.

Here are some of the least successful overseas players to have worn the club colours.

Shane Bond: Decent first spell with the club, but forced to pull out of a second contract due to a stress fracture of the back.

Collins Obuya: The worst overseas signing in history? The Kenyan tomato seller played three first-class games an struggled to hold his place in the seconds.

Dewald Pretorius: 36 wickets at 39 apiece before injury intervened.

Brad Hogg: Signed as a 'cutting edge' bowler, Hogg claimed only 18 first-class wickets at 53 apiece. Positive batting was a consolation.

Damien Fleming: Never managed a first-class game, but did deliver 24 balls in a limited-overs game before injury struck.

Michael Clark: Played just one game before his back forced him home and into retirement.

Daniel Vettori: Another who played just one, wicketless game.

Martin Love: Might 2007 have been different had Love been able to fulfil his contract? A knee injury prevented him from arriving.

Corey Collymore: Eight wickets at 60 apiece was not what Warwickshire were after when they signed the slowest West Indian fast bowler in history.

Manoj Prabhakar: Turned out to be a blessing as Brian Lara was signed instead and Warwickshire went on to achieve the treble. Mind you, Dermot Reeve once remarked that the club might have won all four trophies had Prabhakar been available...

Monde Zondeki: An underwhelming sojourn at Edgbaston; nine wickets at 42 apiece.
