Richie Berrington powered Scotland to their long-awaited first victory over an ICC Full Member when his century, which was made in only 56 balls and included five sixes, set-up victory over Bangladesh in a T20 international in July 2012
A batting allrounder who can bowl seam, Berrington was born in Pretoria but emigrated to Scotland as a youth and has been part of their set-up since his days in the Under-15 side. His early promise was clearly evident and as an 18 year old he was sent to India as part of the ICC's European Cricket Academy.
Berrington had played for Scotland's Under-19 side while still eligible for their Under-17s, and was part of the squad that took part in the Under-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka in February 2006. Progressing through the Scottish A side, he made his ODI debut against Ireland at Aberdeen in July 2008, hitting the winning runs as Scotland won by five wickets.
He quickly established himself as a regular in the national side, and with Cricket Scotland looking to increase the professionalism of their side was awarded a full-time professional contract along with five other players in March 2010. Berrington gave notice of his ball-striking ability by hitting 56 off just 23 balls in an ODI against Ireland in 2011, but has frustrated Scotland fans with his inconsistency. In his 34th ODI, also against Ireland, he made his maiden ODI hundred to ensure his place in Scotland's World Cup squad.
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?
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Never has a cricketer from his community played for the country. Mahinder Pal Singh is looking to change that
Stats highlights from the third ODI between Australia and Pakistan in Perth
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
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?
