Isaac Walker was one of seven brothers that were Middlesex in the county's formative years as a player and administrator. As a batsman he stood with his legs wide apart and was strong of the off side with a trademark hit in the air over cover's head. His bowling was underarm although he was underused, particular when he himself led the side. After retiring he devoted himself to coaching at his old school. In 1870 he founded the Harrow Wanderers who he played for regularly.
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad

How many players have scored centuries in their 99th and 101st Tests?
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
On the forthcoming tour of India, selectors will have to solve the No. 6 riddle, get the batting order right, and strike a good balance between pace and spin
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
