Jason Lewry is a one-county man, having made his debut for Sussex in 1994. Lewry's left-arm seam has gathered him over five hundred first-class wickets at an impressive average in the mid twenties. His consistency with the ball has been rewarded with a sole England A tour, to Zimbabwe and South Africa in 1998-99, and he can consider himself unlucky not to have won full recognition.
He has often been overshadowed by his new ball partner at Sussex, James Kirtley, but there have been occasions when he has grabbed the limelight for himself, notably when taking 7 wickets in 14 balls against Hampshire at Hove in 2001, at the time the second-best spell in first-class cricket history. Dogged by injury in recent years, he was nevertheless a key part in the Sussex team that won the County Championship for the first time in the county's history in 2003 and again in 2006.

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
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
