Sajeewa de Silva took full advantage of his selection into the National Side with an exemplary performance in the Test series versus Pakistan in Colombo. Although, he has not produced a noteworthy Test contribution since then, he still remains a very useful one-day cricketer. Not a quickie by Test standards, Sajeewa relies more on swing and maintaining an excellent line and length. He has an excellent wicket taking record in ODIs by employing this tactic to often lull the batsmen into thinking they can score off him. (Treshad Sosa, November 1997)
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

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
