Stourbridge-born Matt Pardoe, a left-handed middle-order batsman, developed through the Worcestershire youth teams and won his county debut at the start of 2011. While impressively solid, he also looked limited and struggled to register telling contributions.
2011 brought him 507 runs at 19.50 in the Championship and 2012 407 runs at 20.35. During the winter he went to Zimbabwe and played three matches for Southern Rocks, the highlight being an innings of 90.
A maiden first-class century followed against Glamorgan in 2013 but, with the emergence of young players such as Tom Fell and Tom Kohler-Cadmore, and not great talent for the limited-overs formats, Pardoe was released at the end of 2014.
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
