Left-arm seamer Chris Wood is one of the most promising young bowlers on Hampshire's books. He has earned a reputation as a skilful bowler in one-day cricket and twice in 2012, in the Friend Life t20 final against Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank 40 final with Warwickshire, held his nerve in the final over to secure his side the trophy.
Born in Basingstoke, Wood came up through the Hampshire age groups and was selected for England Under-19s to tour South Africa. In 2010, he got his break in county cricket and returned 20 wickets as Hampshire lifted the Friends Provident t20. He also averaged 23.92 in 40-over cricket and 20.29 the following season, with 18 scalps coming in 2012 en route to Lord's success.
In four-day cricket, he enjoyed healthy campaigns in 2011 and 2012 in roughly half the Championship campaign but struggled in 2013. That could partially be explained by a knee problem which required surgery at the end of the season.
A gutting loss to England, after leading the series 1-0, has thrown up some glaring inadequacies in the Indian team but there is little being said or done in terms of improvement
After 8-0, MS Dhoni could look forward to building a team from scratch; now, there is nothing left for him to contribute. Free him from the Test captaincy and he could yet give back in other ways
For all MS Dhoni's many trophies and accomplishments, Test cricket continues to resist his magic and indefinitely postpone his motorbike ride into the sunset
Former players react to India's humiliating 1-3 series defeat in England
Why does the man who is possibly England's greatest fast bowler occasionally turn into Mr Hyde on the field?
With too great an emphasis on limited-overs cricket, MS Dhoni's side have a set of skills and a level of concentration that are not commensurate with the necessities of Tests
