Llorne Howell made his debut for New Zealand's one-day side at Sharjah in 1997-98, marking his arrival with four half-centuries and an average of 30 across the nine ODIs he played. Howell likes to dominate the bowling and has a reputation for lifting the ball out of the park. Teamed with Nathan Astle, he ensured a fiery start to New Zealand's innings. A persistent shoulder injury checked his career, and he slipped well down the pecking order. His style of batting was generally recognised to be unsuitable for Tests.

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
