Ashley Woodcock was a reliable opening bat who won only one official Test cap for Australia - against New Zealand in 1973-74 - although he had played for Australia against Rest of the World at Adelaide in 1971-72. On neither occasion did he reproduce the form which made him a regular in the South Australia side for nine seasons. His form dropped away markedly after 1974-75 and within two years he was effectively finished by the time he was 30. He became a lecturer at La Trobe University, Bendigo, and also coached the local cricket club.
The current Ranji season is proving to be a breakout one for Delhi's Rishabh Pant, who is aiming to make it big for his mentor, Tarak Sinha
