Wisden Cricketers' Almanack obituary
HOSEN, ROGER WILLS, died on April 9, 2005, aged 71. An all-rounder who turned out for Cornwall for 15 years, captaining them from 1963 to 1967, he played one first-class match, for the Minor Counties against the South Africans in 1965. His solitary wicket was the tourists' captain, Peter van der Merwe. He scored a century for Cornwall against Wiltshire in 1962, and took eight for 15 against Dorset in 1964. Hosen was far better known as a rugby full-back, winning ten caps for England. He taught at Northampton Grammar School and Cheltenham College.

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?
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?
