Profile

Gareth Batty made a remarkable return to Test cricket after more than an 11-year absence when England summoned him, at 39, for Test tours of Bangladesh and India late in 2016. After such a long absence his roar of joy in Chittagong when Tamim Iqbal was caught behind was understandable. No English spinner had taken the new ball in the first innings of a Test since John Emburey did so against West Indies in 1988 and his first ball was, in his words, "a pie" that was cut for four, but he soon settled and took four wickets in England's victory, only to fall quickly out of favour as England's performances declined.
