Sangakkara: a mix of modern and orthodox
He embraced the current practice of playing an all-out aggressive game without sacrificing the strong technique he grew up with
Why Clarke might not be as good against spin as we think
The Australian captain is considered world-class against spin, but his numbers in Asia suggest he has some chinks in his armour
Mustafizur and the art of the cutter
What makes this innocuous-seeming bowler so difficult to handle?
Alastair Cook's mind games
Was the England captain's slump in form brought on by issues of technique or by a cluttered mind?
The Rogers method
The lack of a backlift restricts the Australian opener's range of strokes, especially the drive, but he has managed to use his limitations to his advantage
Will we see the Harbhajan of old?
India's leading offspinner of the 2000s fell away because of his tendency to overuse the doosra. Can he make enough of an impact in Bangladesh?
How aggression pays off for McCullum
As a batsman, he's bent on taking the fight to the opposition, and it's much the same with his captaincy

The modern batsman's weakness against the bouncer
A lot of batsmen nowadays take blows to the head or body because they commit too early on the front foot when they should be focusing on going deeper in the crease
What can India do against Steven Smith?
He has made over 500 runs in the three Tests so far, but he isn't quite invincible
The secret of Vijay's success
The Indian opener does not play the horizontal-bat shots, but he has a good record in Australia regardless
Why Dhoni's weakness against fuller balls is no longer a problem
If he shows the discipline he did in England, resisting the temptation to drive full deliveries outside off, he could get a maiden Test hundred in Australia
Kohli's England failures technical, not mental
The batsman needs to make a minor adjustment in getting his upper body to move in the direction of the ball, especially if it swings away
Dhawan's bouncer problem
Why the Indian opener would be well advised to shelve the hook and pull in Australia
Pujara and the challenge of being a Test-only batsman
