Plays of the day from the IPL match between Rising Pune Supergiants and Mumbai Indians, in Pune
Also: the oldest maiden Test centurions, most Test matches missed, and keeper-captains' double-hundreds
He cannot match the big hitters for power, but his numbers are as good as theirs - if not better
For struggling Test teams to get better, they need to strengthen their domestic cricket and ensure their best players aren't lost to T20
