All-rounder Ruaidhri Smith had a notable first-team debut for Glamorgan in 2013 when he dismissed Kent's Brendon Nash with his first ball in first-class cricket. Smith was born in Glasgow and played for Scotland Under-19s while at Shrewsbury School, scoring 145 on debut. His bow in professional cricket was for Scotland in the 40-over competition in 2013 by which time he was playing for Glamorgan second XI.
Progress has been steady since his dramatic entrance. In 2014, he struck his maiden Championship fifty against Gloucestershire, whilst in 2015 he returned career-best bowling figures of 3 for 32 against Derbyshire at Chesterfield. Having completed a degree in mathematics at Bristol University in 2016, the highlight of an injury-hit Glamorgan season was a hat-trick against the Pakistan A tourists at Newport. Scotland awarded him his first two ODI caps against Afghanistan in Edinburgh in 2016.
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
