Tom Taylor, a product of the Derbyshire academy, signed his first professional contract in 2014. He made his first-class debut in Derbyshire's first victory of the Championship season, when they defeated Leicestershire in June. Although a specialist bowler, it was with the bat where he made most impact, scoring 40 during an important partnership with centurion David Wainwright to help his side to victory.
His maiden first-class wicket came in his next game against Surrey when he dismissed the South African batsman Hashim Amla. He took his first five-wicket haul - at only 19 - when he returned figures of 5 for 58 as Derbyshire beat Gloucestershire at the Cheltenham Festival. He was part of the England Performance Programme in 2015/16, but a stress fracture interrupted his development the following summer.
Some of the reactions on Twitter to Virat Kohli's record-equalling hundred during India's chase in Pune
In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?
Stats highlights from the first ODI between India and England in Pune

The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
The shot Shakib Al Hasan played to be dismissed on day five at Basin Reserve defies explanation. It also prompts a few questions
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
