Although a left-arm medium bowler, Kevin Dean became a Derbyshire hero for hitting the winning runs against Australia in 1997. Two first-class hat tricks against Kent the following season and against Leicestershire at Grace Road in 2000, demonstrated his potential to devastate the opposition. He was joint leading wicket-taker in English first-class cricket with Martin Saggers in 2002, claiming 83 victims, and was duly named Derbyshire Player of the Year. Dean found it difficult to recapture such form but his experience has proved invaluable to the Derbyshire seam attack, although his opportunities have been limited in recent seasons. He announced his retirement from first-class cricket at the end of the 2008 season.

Some of the reactions on Twitter to Virat Kohli's record-equalling hundred during India's chase in Pune
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?
Stats highlights from the first ODI between India and England in Pune
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
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
The shot Shakib Al Hasan played to be dismissed on day five at Basin Reserve defies explanation. It also prompts a few questions
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?
