Another from Pakistan's never-ending stable of fast-bowling talent, Yasir Ali's potential was first noticed when he played in the Under-19s for Attock. A stint with Pakistan's National Academy followed, during which time he went with the Academy on a successful tour of South Africa. Yasir hadn't played a first-class game when he was drafted into the Test line-up to take on Bangladesh at Multan in the 2003-04 season. Not surprisingly, he started off nervously, but improved as the match wore on, picking up two wickets. Yasir has a good bowling technique and a clean, fluid action, and is tipped to be a long-term prospect for Pakistan.
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
