Adam Rossington, a wicketkeeper-batsman, was one of the few bright spots for Northamptonshire in 2014 as they were relegated by 91 points, losing 12 of their 16 Championship matches, eight by an innings. In such an unremittingly bleak season, Rossington's 465 runs at 31.00 were about as good as it got at Wantage Road - he also carried threat in limited-overs cricket - and his loan from Middlesex became a permanent deal at the end of the season.
Rossington's opportunities had been limited at Middlesex by the presence of John Simposn, but even so the departure of a player who had come through the Middlesex youth system, and who was described on his departure by director of cricket Angus Fraser as "an extremely talented young cricketer" was something of a surprise.
A product of both Middlesex's youth teams and the expensive Mill Hill school in North London, Rossington hit 161 in his first Second XI innings for Middlesex, against Northamptonshire in 2009. A first-class debut followed the next season and he was part of England's Under-19s that summer against Sri Lanka when a destructive hundred in the first Test made an impression. His maiden first-class hundred - an unbeaten 57-ball ton against Cambridge MCCU - included a string of five consecutive sixes.
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?

Every time the bowlers have earned Sri Lanka a slim advantage during this series, the batsmen have found ways to let them down, at the crease and in the field
