Chad Barrett made a century on debut for Northamptonshire against Worcestershire in 2016, a startling contribution which ranked as the highest score ever made by a Northants No. 10. Barrett's unbeaten 114 beat the 106 by Gus Williamson against Cambridge University in 1960.
His feat was all the more remarkable considering Barrett's career path. The South African's only other previous first-class experience came for Northants against the Sri Lankan tourists in 2014, a rare call to arms as he played Second XI cricket for Leicestershire, Middlesex and Somerset in an effort to gain another chance at first-class level.
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
