A right-arm fast bowler from Peshawar, Imran Khan made his Test debut against Australia in October 2014 at the age of 27. The promotion to the national team was just reward for extremely consistent domestic performances in the three previous seasons: in 2011-12 he took 61 wickets at 19,70, the next season he took 57 at 21.52, and in 2013-14 he grabbed 52 wickets at 20.73. In his second Test, against Australia in Abu Dhabi, he took 3 for 60, dismissing Chris Rogers, Michael Clarke and Mitchell Marsh.
In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?

On the forthcoming tour of India, selectors will have to solve the No. 6 riddle, get the batting order right, and strike a good balance between pace and spin
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
