    The Six who came in from the Cold

    The Six who came in from the Cold

    In this feature David Taylor looks back ten years to the summer of 2003, when England's selectors showed an uncharacteristic sense of adventure.

    The best thing I remember about that series was Martin Bicknell's delicious set-up of Jacques Rudolph at (I think) the Oval test.

    3 away swingers set up Rudolph to leave the fourth alone. Bang - inswinger hits the top of off. Or at least that's how I remember it.

    Anyone happen to have seen that particular wicket on You Tube anywhere?

    Good article, 2003 was the first summer where I made an effort to sit down and follow Test cricket, hence my love for Jimmeh.

    Flintoff's batting that summer was awesome.

    I think it was the first time I followed the English summer as well.

    Very interesting article, but the author missed a trick.

    "James Kirtley helped Sussex to two more titles before retiring in 2010, and now runs a sportswear company."

    I wouldn't have used 'retiring' - I would have said 'chucked it in'. Then again, I would probably have been sued.
