Vaughn Walsh was a small, skiddy but genuinely fast bowler who had the misfortune to play at the end of the era when West Indies still had more than a few of his ilk. A far from conventional character - he often turned up to matches on the back of an old moped - he was limited to games for Leeward Islands and a couple of seasons in South Africa, but was at one time rated by Andy Roberts as the most slippery bowler in the Caribbean. For a number of years he terrorised batsmen in his native Antigua and in league cricket in Leicestershire, where he also appeared briefly for the county's 2nd XI. In 1991 he was also offered a chance to play for Somerset against the touring Sri Lankans but opted to play for his club instead. That same season in cup match he took nine wickets for two runs (both no balls), with eight bowled and one lbw, and was only deprived of all ten when the No. 11 refused to come out of the pavilion to face him.
After spending 15 years in the domestic circuit, Naman Ojha is expected to make his Test debut in the third match, for which, he says, he is not facing additional pressure because of the long wait
After a ten-month free-fall, Cheteshwar Pujara will turn out for India once again at the traditional batting paradise that is the SSC. Can he make it count?
He averages better than Rohit Sharma but still has to fight for a place in the Test side, mostly because he doesn't play ODIs
For the fifth time in the last year and a half, India had their opponents five down for less than 100 only to let the lower order off the hook
Cheteshwar Pujara's century was proof that at times in Test match play, survival need not mean mere tentativeness but the ability to wait for simpler things, like the loose ball
There are more frequent tours, better technology, and easier pitches today than before. So why do teams struggle to win away from home more than they did in the past?
On a steaming Colombo day, victory did not come easily to India. But the team kept its focus, intensity and clarity of thought going, and reaped the benefits
