David Hay played four matches in three years for Oxford University, with his only score of any note coming in his final outing against Lancashire in 1938 when he made 96. He reached his fifty in even time, and appeared set for a "delightful" hundred when he tamely chipped to mid-on after an hour and a half. He had arrived at the university amid high expectations after establishing himself as a renowned schoolboy batsman at Geelong, and he hit powerfully all round the wicket. He was the grandson of William Moule, who had played for Australia in the first Test in England in 1880.
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
