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

    I came here to kick ass and chew bubblegum... And I'm all out of bubblegum.
    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.
