Sreenath Aravind was part of a Karnataka squad that established itself as a powerhouse in domestic cricket by completing a double-treble, winning the Ranji Trophy, the Irani Cup and the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2013-14 and in 2014-15. Karnataka built their team around pace and Aravind's impact as a steady left-arm seamer - and occasionally a left-arm spinner - helped their rise.
With Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc and Trent Boult bringing left-arm pace front and center in the years leading up to the 2015 World Cup, and with India struggling to fill the void left behind by Zaheer Khan, Aravind was handed his first India cap in a T20I against South Africa in 2015. Earlier, he had been in line to make his ODI debut in 2011, but a knee injury prevented him from playing.
His first-class career could have ended before it began. Aravind met with a road accident prior to his first-class debut in 2008. Although he has played over 100 matches across formats in domestic cricket since then, consistency has been a problem. For example, he claimed 54 wickets across formats in the 2014-15 domestic season, but he had only 29 wickets in three seasons (he bowled only three overs in 2012 though) leading up to that. Aravind has a first-class fifty to his name as well, and has played three seasons of the IPL for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
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?

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

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?
