Rob Jones, in only his third-first class match, became the youngest Lancashire batsman since Cyril Washbrook in 1935 to carry his bat for 106 not out in 2016 against a Middlesex side that would emerge from the season as champions.
Jones, a 20-year-old who was playing minor counties cricket for Cheshire earlier in the season, defied a scoreboard that read, at one time 6 for 4 in producing almost seven hours of stout defence. He lofted offspinner Ollie Rayner for six over long on to reach three figures, a feat followed by a prolonged and emotional celebration befitting a young batsman who was so proud to play for Lancashire that he was given to walking around the dressing room in his cap.
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
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
