Andrew Johns, one of the world's best rugby league players, was recruited into the New South Wales Twenty20 side in 2006-07 in an effort to draw large crowds to the Blues' two home games. There was plenty of interest, but his appearance did no favours for the team on the field. In the first outing, at his hometown of Newcastle, Johns came in at No. 11 but with 13 needed off the final over his partner, the captain Simon Katich, could not find the boundary and refused to put Johns on strike, leading to a tame loss. In his second outing, at Sydney, Johns proved he was not a hopeless batsman and made 9 from 10 balls but again the Blues' chase was unsuccessful.

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
