Trinidad left-armer Raphick Jumadeen had a bit of a thankless task, plying his trade around the time when spinners were becoming an endangered species in West Indian cricket. He played 12 Tests in the 1970s, but these came in fits and starts, and he was only once given a full series, against India in 1975-76. He toured England in 1976, taking 58 wickets at 30.00 but playing only one Test, and as Clive Lloyd's all-pace attack came to the fore, he was sidelined. The defection of players to World Series Cricket gave him a reprieve, and in two Tests against Australia in 1977-78 he took 11 wickets, but after only three wickets against India the following season (and the return of the Packer players) he was dropped for the last time. Renowned for accuracy rather than penetration, Jumadeen never tore through a side, but he remained tidy and economical: his debut match figures - 64-31-64-1 - summed up his career. He later became a selector and, in July 2008, was was named in the national selection selection panel headed by Clyde Butts.
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
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
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
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
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?
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
