Davis Joseph is a stalwart of the Canadian national team, having played regularly for over a decade. He has represented his country in four ICC Trophy campaigns, taking 31 wickets at an average of under 23, and will be looking forward to capping his international career with an appearance at the World Cup. He opens the bowling at fast-medium, and although increasing years has resulted in a decline of pace he has gained in experience. He has occasionally made runs with his powerful hitting in the tail. An important component of the 2001 ICC Trophy team, he made a considerable impression in the 2002-03 Red Stripe Bowl, where against top-quality opposition he took 9 wickets at an average of just 15. His most impressive performance for Canada, however, was in the 2000 Red Stripe Bowl when he took 6/39 against a strong Jamaican team. Another career highlight was bowling Tendulkar for just 2 runs at the Commonwealth games. He plays for Victoria Park CC in the Toronto and District League (Dave Liverman 2002).
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
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
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
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?
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
