Born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire, Lee Goddard began his career with Derbyshire in 2003, departed for Durham in 2007, but returned to Derbyshire at the end of the 2009 season, prompted by Jamie Pipe's retirement. His first-class appearances have been limited thus far - with the presence of Phil Mustard at The Riverside he played just one first-class and three one-day games for the county - but when he has been given a chance in a first XI he has often impressed. During his first stint at Derbyshire, Goddard made a career-best 91 against Surrey and also set a record for the largest total against Derbyshire without conceding a bye when he kept a clean sheet against Essex as they scored 580. At Durham, he smashed a half-century off only 32 balls against Sri Lanka A to reach the fastest first-class fifty by a Durham batsman, one ball quicker than Ian Botham's previous record.
Goddard did not complete his comeback season at Derbyshire, however, leaving early after the decision was taken not to renew his contract. The county suggested that his poor returns in the field and with the bat were behind their decision, as Goddard took 24 catches and averaged 16.50 in eight first-class matches before he left.

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
