A classy opening batsman and capable left-arm medium-paced change bowler, Robin Bynoe made his debut against Pakistan at Lahore in 1958-59 aged 18, and enjoyed a good tour, scoring over 500 runs. But on his return he all but disappeared from first-class cricket, playing eight matches for Barbados in the next six seasons. In 1965-66 he scored 251 runs at 62.75 , enough to win him a place on the tour to India, but he was unable to repeat the successes of his first trip to the subcontinent, largely being undone by a frailty against spin. Thereafter he was not close to a call-up although he continued to score solidly for Barbados, averaging 70.00 in his final season in 1971-72.
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
