Karan Goel, a left-hand opening batsman and part-time offspinner, made his way through the ranks of Punjab's various age-group sides, starting from the Under-14s to the U-22s, before breaking into the senior state side in the 2005-06 season. While he has become a regular for the Punjab and North Zone sides, he has been more successful in the shorter versions of the game. Averages of around 40 in both one-dayers and Twenty20s convinced Kings XI Punjab to sign him on for the Indian Premier League.

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
