Davis Joseph is a stalwart of the Canadian national team, having played regularly for over a decade. He has represented his country in four ICC Trophy campaigns, taking 31 wickets at an average of under 23, and will be looking forward to capping his international career with an appearance at the World Cup. He opens the bowling at fast-medium, and although increasing years has resulted in a decline of pace he has gained in experience. He has occasionally made runs with his powerful hitting in the tail. An important component of the 2001 ICC Trophy team, he made a considerable impression in the 2002-03 Red Stripe Bowl, where against top-quality opposition he took 9 wickets at an average of just 15. His most impressive performance for Canada, however, was in the 2000 Red Stripe Bowl when he took 6/39 against a strong Jamaican team. Another career highlight was bowling Tendulkar for just 2 runs at the Commonwealth games. He plays for Victoria Park CC in the Toronto and District League (Dave Liverman 2002).
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Stats highlights from the third ODI between Australia and Pakistan in Perth
How many players have scored centuries in their 99th and 101st Tests?
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
On the forthcoming tour of India, selectors will have to solve the No. 6 riddle, get the batting order right, and strike a good balance between pace and spin
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?
