Andrew Caddick

Caddick has been a valuable member of the England squad in both forms of the game, making 62 Test and 54 one-day international appearances.

He retired from ODI cricket following the 2003 World Cup and a back injury, plus the subsequent form of the likes of Stephen Harmison and Matthew Hoggard, means he has not featured for the Test side since the Ashes series earlier that winter.

Took 234 wickets in Test cricket, placing him seventh in England’s all-time standings, and was chosen as one of Wisden’s five cricketers of the year in 2001.

Perhaps his finest performance was his explosive spell of bowling against West Indies at Lord’s in 2000 when he claimed 5-16 in 13 overs as the tourists were skittled for just 54.

A New Zealander by birth, Caddick modelled his bowling action on Sir Richard Hadlee and during the peak of his career he formed a potent opening bowling partnership with Darren Gough.

He is part of the furniture at Taunton and signed a new four-year contract in 2004. He signed a one-year extension for 2009 when he was also awarded a testimonial.

However he finally called time on his glittering career the same year.
