Murray Bragg had worked his way through each step of the Queensland representative ladder when he made his first-class debut in the opening Pura Cup game of 2007-08. A qualified accountant, Bragg balances his work with wicketkeeping and was operating as Chris Hartley's understudy when the incumbent's wrist injury allowed an opening.
Bragg was a rookie contract holder with the Bulls last season, but was too old for a second deal and missed the initial senior squad. In 2005-06 he played for the QAS for the first time and posted a grade century for Valley to confirm his promise as a wicketkeeper-batsman. He started his career in Jimboomba and represented the state's primary school, under-15 schoolboy, under 17, under 19 and colts sides before graduating to the senior ranks.

Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
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
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
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
