Ryan Canning is a talented wicketkeeper-batsman who the Cape Cobras have invested in over the last four seasons. Canning has had to serve as understudy to former Cobras captain Thami Tsolekile, playing for the Western Province amateur side in the meantime, but a superb 2008 season raised his value. In that season he scored his maiden first-class century and contributed several useful scores in the middle order. Canning has also toured with the South African Academy, scoring a century in Pakistan in 2005-06. He was selected as the Cobras' wicketkeeper in the inaugural Champions League Twenty20 in India in 2009.

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
