The well-travelled Vince Wells started his career at Kent before moving to Leicestershire in 1992, and finishing with one season at Durham in 2003.
A typical bits-and-pieces English allrounder (he bowled medium-pace wobblers and batted in the middle order) Wells - at 33 - was a surprise choice for the England one-day side in Australia in 1998-99. He took 3 for 30 - including three of the top four - in the first Carlton & United Series final against Australia and then cracked 33 in 39 balls. It was enough to keep him in the squad for the 1999 World Cup, but although he featured in England's warm-ups in Sharjah, he didn't play a game in the tournament. His early retirement was brought about by a desire to pursue business interests in southern England.
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
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
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
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
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
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
