Although a left-arm medium bowler, Kevin Dean became a Derbyshire hero for hitting the winning runs against Australia in 1997. Two first-class hat tricks against Kent the following season and against Leicestershire at Grace Road in 2000, demonstrated his potential to devastate the opposition. He was joint leading wicket-taker in English first-class cricket with Martin Saggers in 2002, claiming 83 victims, and was duly named Derbyshire Player of the Year. Dean found it difficult to recapture such form but his experience has proved invaluable to the Derbyshire seam attack, although his opportunities have been limited in recent seasons. He announced his retirement from first-class cricket at the end of the 2008 season.

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
