Willie Rodriguez was a good allrounder who failed to reproduce his best performances at Test level. He scored a fifty on his debut against India at Port-of-Spain in 1961-62, but his tour of England in 1963 was a disappointment, largely because of injury. He appeared infrequently after that tour, but returned to manage West Indies in Australia in 1979-80. Rodriguez also represented Trinidad at football.

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

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?
