Stuart Thompson is an allrounder who is highly regarded by Ireland's coach Phil Simmons. An attractive left-handed batsman, he also offers useful medium-pace seam. He impressed in his first game against a Test-playing side, making a run-a-ball 33 and taking 2 for 17 against the West Indies in an ODI in February 2014.
Over the summer of 2014 Thompson grew in stature and was in sparkling form during the ODI series against Scotland that September. But he endured a horrific autumn, hitting just 24 runs in eight innings in Ireland's World Cup preparations. Nevertheless, Simmons was unwilling to discard his investment and Thompson was selected in the 15-man squad for the Associate tournament in the UAE in January 2015, which was expected to be identical to Ireland's World Cup squad. Thompson's father, Nigel, also represented Ireland.
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?

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
