Peter Forrest's decision to head north to Queensland in 2011 paid off with a call-up to Australia's ODI squad in his first summer with the Bulls, and he justified that faith in him by scoring 66 on his international debut, and notching up his maiden ODI century in only his fourth innings. In fact, he'd scored more runs than any other Australian batsman after four ODIs, and the first to make three 50-plus scores in his first four innings.
Forrest's selection came after a strong start to his Sheffield Shield summer, with three centuries in the first six games. Already he had played more Shield matches than he had in either of the previous two seasons with New South Wales. The Blues had a long list of talented batsmen to squeeze into their line-up and Forrest decided his best chance of consistent game time was to switch states. A right-hand middle-order batsman, he had done enough during his time with the Blues to be picked for Australia A to play Sri Lanka A in 2010, which came on the back of a Shield tally of 452 runs at 64.57 in 2009-10. Forrest made an impressive start to his state career but his form tailed off in 2008-09 after the sudden death of his father Ian. He carries a tattoo on his right arm bearing the name of his mother, Vanda, who died of cancer when Forrest was 18.
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
