Mick Raymer was an aggressive left-hand batsman and bowler of left-arm spin or medium pace who made 74 appearances for Queensland between 1940-41 and 1956-57.
He was unfortunate in that no sooner had he broken into the state side as a 22-year-old than domestic cricket was suspended and he spent the remainder of the war in New Guinea with the 61st Infantry Battalion. He formed a useful post-war spin partnership with legspinner Colin McCool, and in 1951-52 the pair shared 15 wickets in a 10-wicket rout of the touring West Indians.

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
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

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
