One of the back-up New South Wales glovemen, Daniel Smith almost played a full season in 2008-09 thanks to Brad Haddin's elevation to the national set-up. There were 10 first-class games that summer with a total of 33 dismissals and with the bat Smith peaked with 96 in 102 balls against South Australia, going on to register 407 runs at 31.30. He was also a regular in the one-day and Twenty20 formats but played without significant impact. By the end of 2009-10 Peter Nevill was behind the stumps, after Smith had struggled with the bat in five Shield matches. He did better in the FR Cup and was also handy in the Twenty20s.
In 2007-08 Smith captured 23 catches in four first-class games, but a highest score of 42 was slightly disappointing, and he didn't stand out in five one-day games. Haddin's World Cup call-up in 2007 allowed Smith to end that season with the Blues and he appeared in the final loss to Tasmania after impressing with 51 from 33 balls against Queensland. Smith also featured in England's tour match against New South Wales when he made 45, but he added only one FR Cup match and one Twenty20 outing to his tally. A top-order batsman for his club side Western Suburbs, Smith was picked in the state and national under-19 teams and honed his skills at the Academy in 2001.

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
