Fulton's career doesn't make for enthralling reading, if we're honest. Even he, at the age of 34, admitted after the first innings' 136 that he'd pretty much given up on a glittering international career.
This weekend was a veritable feast of enthralling cricket, with five series on the go around the world, but no performance thrilled fans as much as the one by India opener Shikhar Dhawan, who made 187 off just 174 balls in Mohali.
Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez epitomised the mantra of 'leading from the front' in the only completed T20 against South Africa, scoring a blistering 86 off 51 balls, and then taking three wickets as the Proteas lost by 95 runs.
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been on a rollercoaster ride in terms of form this year, doing well against Pakistan, and then faltering against England, but reaching the crest of his wave this weekend against Australia.
Vernon Philander is going to be so pissed. He takes a five-fer, his ninth in just 15 Tests, and then four more in the second innings against Pakistan in Cape Town, and he still doesn't get our coveted Player of the Week award.
