Tony Dodemaide's was a fairly unspectacular career, but he certainly had his moments. He took a five-for on ODI debut, against Sri Lanka in Perth in 1987-88, and he made 50 (batting at No. 9) and took 6 for 58 on his Test debut, against New Zealand in Melbourne the same winter. But those were the only instances of Dodemaide taking five wickets or reaching 50 in his 10 Tests and 24 ODIs. Uniquely, he played his first four Tests against four different countries: New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. He also had three seasons at Sussex, before becoming the MCC's Head of Cricket at Lord's. In April 2004 he returned to Australia as CEO of Western Australia and three years later he headed home to Melbourne to become the chief executive of Cricket Victoria.
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
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
