In 2010, Steven Mullaney added his name to the small list of Nottinghamshire players to score a century on his first-class debut for the county, when he made exactly 100 not out. against Hampshire at The Rose Bowl.
It was three years before he added another century in the Championship. He was charged with solving a perennial Nottinghamshire problem - the lack of a reliable opening pair - after a short-term contract for the Australian Ed Cowan, ahead of the Ashes series, had come to an end. He responded by taking a hundred off the Surrey attack.
By the end of a dry summer, he had underlined his versatility even more, abandoning his medium pace to fill in as an offspinner because of Nottinghamshire's spin shortages.
A useful performer in all three formats of the game, Mullaney comes into his own in white ball matches. An outstanding fielder and punchy strokeplayer, his knack of bowling a sequence of tidy medium-paced overs in the middle of matches has turned many 40-over contests in Nottinghamshire's favour. In 2012 he was jointly the county's most successful bowler in Twenty20 matches, his nine wickets including a career-best 4 for 19 against Leicestershire at Grace Road in June.
Mullaney began his career with Lancashire and in 2005 toured India with England Under-19s. He was selected for the Under-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka in 2006 and signed a professional contract at Old Trafford in 2006. Yet he could not secure a regular place in the first team and chose to leave after four seasons.
Ishant Sharma has often been the butt of jokes, and sometimes deservedly so. Today, however, the joke was on England
The leave outside off stump has been critical to M Vijay's success since his India comeback last year. Contrary to popular opinion, such patience and self-denial comes naturally to him
They have to see a glass that is half-full, and play the game as if it is just that, a game; and an opportunity
In India's win at Lord's, Ishant Sharma took the best bowling figures by an Indian in the fourth innings of a Test outside Asia. Here are five other best bowling efforts by Indians in the fourth innings of Tests outside Asia
Alastair Cook has got used to feeling of the axe hanging over him. Only his team-mates can save England now
India's wretched run away from home began at Lord's in 2011. A young team full of self-belief may have brought it to an end with their victory at the same venue three years later
What's wrong with their cricket? Well, what isn't?
