Ten years on from playing their first Test match together, England’s greatest bowling partnership discuss the day they met, their families and the summer ahead
Anderson The first game we played against each other was Lancashire v Leicestershire at Old Trafford in 2005. I remember Gibbo [Ottis Gibson] was playing for you guys, but I don’t think we actually spoke to each other.

I can then remember an England preparation camp for the 2006-07 Ashes in Loughborough.
