Khalid Aziz enjoyed a long if moderate first-class career as a batsman, but made more of an impression as an umpire, standing in three Tests and seven ODIs between 1978-79 and 1993-94. As a batsman, he made only one hundred in his 18-year career, but was nevertheless good enough to be 12th man in one Pakistan Test against England in 1956-57. The following summer he toured England with the Pakistan Eagles and finished second in the averages with 950 runs. After retiring in 1974, eh quickly became established as one of Pakistan's leading umpires, standing in his first Test in 1978-79 at the relatively young age of 41. He stood again in 1980, but his third and final appearance was not until 1991-92. All three matches he officiated in were at Faisalabad. His seven ODIs spanned 16 years and included one match at the 1987 World Cup.
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
