Jamie Harrison is a left-arm seamer who was born on Merseyside but moved to Cumbria as a child and attended Sedbergh School, which numbers former England rugby union captains John Spencer and Will Carling among its old boys, along with rugby union World Cup winner Will Greenwood. He is among several Durham cricketers recruited from Cumbria.
Harrison made his Second XI debut as an 18-year-old in April 2009 and was given his senior debut against Somerset in a Clydesdale Bank 40 match at Chester-le-Street in May 2012, claiming the wicket of Craig Kieswetter with his fourth delivery. He made his LV= Championship debut against the same opposition in Taunton the following week, dismissing Arul Suppiah with his ninth ball and going on to finish with 4 for 112 from 22 overs.
He played in three further matches, two in the Championship, before a stress fracture of the shin ended his season early. Throughout the winter, he was in the swimming pool early in the morning and last thing at night as he fought to regain fitness. His first Championship appearance in 2013 was delayed until late August, but he took his first five-wicket haul as he mopped up Surrey's tail at Chester-le-Street: he disposed of Surrey's last three batsmen, two lbw and finally scattering Jade Dernbach's stumps, without conceding a run. A knee injury brought further frustration in 2014.

After spending 15 years in the domestic circuit, Naman Ojha is expected to make his Test debut in the third match, for which, he says, he is not facing additional pressure because of the long wait

He averages better than Rohit Sharma but still has to fight for a place in the Test side, mostly because he doesn't play ODIs
Cheteshwar Pujara's century was proof that at times in Test match play, survival need not mean mere tentativeness but the ability to wait for simpler things, like the loose ball
There are more frequent tours, better technology, and easier pitches today than before. So why do teams struggle to win away from home more than they did in the past?
