David Ogilvie was a right-hand bat who was easily identifiable because of his flame-red hair and bushy beard. In 1977-78 he hit the headlines after a remarkable season in which he scored 1060 runs (66.25) including six centuries, a record only surpassed at the time by Bill Ponsford and Don Bradman. He was drafted into an Australian side split by defections to World Series Cricket, and in three Tests against India that summer he failed to assert himself. He got a second chance when he was flown to the Caribbean to join Australia's ill-tempered series later that season but again failed to make his mark. Within two years he had faded from the scene.
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
