Irresistible on his day, Andy Caddick could also be frustratingly mediocre - especially for England. For Somerset he was as consistently destructive as any overseas player, even on the belters at Taunton. Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, he modelled his action after Richard Hadlee, and sometimes bowled as well as him, finding movement from just short of a length.

Caddick moved to England after representing New Zealand at the youth level, and made his first-class debut in 1991 for Somerset, which was his club for the rest of his career. His breakthrough year was 1992, when he picked up 4 for 96 in his County Championship debut against Gloucestershire, and a ten-for against Kent a few months later. A strong showing the following season - including a career-best 9 for 32 against Lancashire in an innings - saw him called up to the Test and one-day squads in 1993. He was England's leading wicket-taker on their 1994 tour of West Indies, but plagued by injury and capricious form, he only really found a stable place in the side in 1996-97. He took 24 wickets in the 1997 Ashes and forged a menacing partnership with Darren Gough for the next four years. His career best figures of 7 for 46 came when he dismantled a strong South Africa line-up in Durban in 1999, and he ended his Test career with another seven-for, against Australia in Sydney in 2003; after a back issue sidelined him for a year, he would never find his way into the England side again.

Caddick continued to play for Somerset for another eight years, finishing as the leading English first-class wicket-taker in 2007, but yet more injuries forced him to step back from the game in 2009, after 19 years with the club.
