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.
A gutting loss to England, after leading the series 1-0, has thrown up some glaring inadequacies in the Indian team but there is little being said or done in terms of improvement
After 8-0, MS Dhoni could look forward to building a team from scratch; now, there is nothing left for him to contribute. Free him from the Test captaincy and he could yet give back in other ways
For all MS Dhoni's many trophies and accomplishments, Test cricket continues to resist his magic and indefinitely postpone his motorbike ride into the sunset

Why does the man who is possibly England's greatest fast bowler occasionally turn into Mr Hyde on the field?
With too great an emphasis on limited-overs cricket, MS Dhoni's side have a set of skills and a level of concentration that are not commensurate with the necessities of Tests
