Shaaiq Choudhry's left-arm spin is rarely used by Worcestershire who struggle to justify a place for a specialist spinner in their side.
Choudhry made his County Championship debut in 2010 but has made only five subsequent appearances. He was blasted for 25 in two overs against Lancashire at Blackpool in 2011 and in the corresponding fixture in 2012 - on a raging turner at Old Trafford, one of his two Championship appearances that summer - was outbowled by Moeen Ali who took 12 wickets in the match to Choudhry's six, further reinforcing the belief that Worcestershire can get by with just Moeen as their spin option.
He is picked more in one day cricket and played a reasonable part in Worcestershire's CB40 campaigns in 2011 and 2012, going at under a run-a-ball in 2012.
After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.
The new stand-in captain has the makings of a long-term leader, given his ability to stay ahead of the game
Turning your back on a system that the whole cricketing world wants a discussion on, refusing to discuss it because it is not 100%, is not good enough
