Named after the pre-eminent African leader of the 20th century, Nelson Mandela Odhiambo is a medium-fast seamer who represented Kenya Under-19s and Kenya A before cracking into the senior side during the Tri-series against Uganda and Scotland. His uncle, allrounder Thomas Odoyo, is one of the finest cricketers to have represented Kenya and Odhiambo had the honour of opening the bowling with him for the first time during the World Cricket League Division One tournament in Netherlands in July 2010. Though his bowling has already shown promise, Odhiambo is an unabashed tailender with a high score of 7 across all formats.

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?
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
Stats highlights from the third ODI between Australia and Pakistan in Perth
How many players have scored centuries in their 99th and 101st Tests?
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?
