Ian Botham

Ian Botham Cricket World Cup Legend

Known as Beefy the lad from Cheshire went a long way in the World of cricket similar to the cricket ball he hit out of the ground.

Botham is best remembered for the Ashes series he won for England in the early 80's when he literally pick up the England team and beat the Australians all by himself, with a little help from Bob Willis.

If you ask Ian what was he most disappointing moment he might recall his duck against Pakistan in the 1992 World Cup final in Melbourne Australia. He had been outspoken about the Australians during this tournament and when he was out in the final in front of most 100,000 Australians the crown rose to their feet and cheered his dismissal with huge vigour a great testament to this great cricketer.
