Craig Serjeant was a tall, powerful, leg-side batsman who made his Test debut at Lord's in June 1977 less than nine months after his first-class debut for Western Australia. He had already gained a reputation as a hard-hitting middle-order player, and 730 runs at 66.36 in his first season, followed by four fifties in the five matches before the opening Test, won him selection. That form continued at Lord's where he made 81 but struggled thereafter and passed fifty only once in his next 17 Test innings. He broke that poor run with 124 against West Indies in the 3rd Test at Georgetown in 1977-78, and solid performances in the next two Tests seemed to have cemented his position. But he started the following summer poorly and never regained his place.

India's wretched run away from home began at Lord's in 2011. A young team full of self-belief may have brought it to an end with their victory at the same venue three years later
