Chris Nash, Cuckfield-born, has developed into one of the most dependable batsmen on the county circuit. His busy, combative style might rarely have interested England, or indeed many outside his own county, but he has frustrated many a county attack as he has served Sussex well for more than a decade. The respect in which he was held also earned him the Sussex vice captaincy after 10 years in the first-class game.
Nash made his Sussex debut as cover for the injured Mark Davies in 2002. It took five years from then for him to really break through into the first team. In 2009, he passed 1,000 Championship runs in the season for the first time, making four centuries along the way. He repeated the feat in 2010, helping Sussex win promotion back to the top flight and winning him a place in the England Lions squad in 2011.
That he was an integral part of the Sussex set up was further emphasised in 2012 when he was named in the PCA Team of the Year for a season of all-round excellence. As his career progressed, he developed a habit of picking up useful wickets with his offspin and his busily-made runs in Sussex's Friends Life t20 campaign helped them reach finals day. It was no surprise therefore to find him to the fore as the 2013 season ended, his century not only allowing him to pass 1,000 first-class runs again, but bringing Sussex third-place prize money as they beat a Durham side which had already secured the title.
A burst appendix disrupted his 2014 season, an unfortunate episode not helped by a post-surgery gangrene infection. By September, though, a big hundred against Notts at Trent Bridge, his only century of the season, suggested that his busy style had been restored to the full.
India began their Women's World Cup campaign in Derby in style. On Saturday, they kept their tournament alive at the same venue with an even more heartening performance
Some familiar quibbles and feature deficiencies aside, Cricket Captain remains cricket's foremost management and simulation game
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
There was plenty of praise for India's Mithali Raj after she became the highest run-getter in women's ODIs
The side has had a few good wins during Trevor Bayliss' tenure, but the problems that harried the side when he took over, still remain, raising the possibility of a split coaching system
Also, what is the record for the number of sixes hit in a T20 match?
England's recklessness in the name of positivity is a sign that the art of batting in the longest format is no longer given due attention
It was always going to take at least two players to even come close to replicating what one of the great allrounders offered and at Trent Bridge that pair may have been found
