A brisk medium-pace bowler with an open action and a useful lower-order hitter, Austin Codrington first appeared for Canada in the 2001 ICC Trophy where he struggled for line and length. He retained his place in the side and gradually found form, and hit the headlines in Canada's opening match of the 2003 World Cup when he took 5 for 27 in a remarkable win over Bangladesh. However, the rest of the tournament was a disappointment and he managed only one more wicket. He featured in Canada's first foray into the Intercontinental Cup the following year, helping them into the final, but was discarded soon after. He returned to the side after almost two years away and impressed in taking 3 for 31 in an ODI against Bermuda, but failed to make much impression in limited opportunities thereafter.

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?
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
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
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
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
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
