Brad Taylor is a highly promising offspinner who took 4 for 64 on Championship debut against Lancashire in late August 2013. A few weeks prior to that match he became the youngest player to appear for the Hampshire first XI since 1867, playing a Yorkshire Bank 40 match against Lancashire at the age of 16 years and 154 days, even before he had discovered the results of his GCSE exams. He admitted to being so nervous that he did not want the ball to come to him in the field but still had the skill to dismiss the former Australian batsman Simon Katich.
In 2014, he played two further first XI matches and was also picked for England Under-19s. He signed a development contract with Hampshire for 2015 and at the end of the season was named as England U-19 captain for a tour of Sri Lanka.
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
