    @eggyroe As much as I am also a fan of ITB I have to disagree withyour statement´a player who has done the business against the very best who played in that era´- unfortunately his record against the West Indies was quite average....

    Prior's comments about the coaches' somewhat overbearing role today are extremely revealing.

    I'm very impressed that Sir Ian Botham has been asked to provide the Spirit of Cricket Lecture.Having watched him play at Somerset since he was a mere slip of a boy with his best mate Sir Viv, what ever he brings to the lecturer room has to be top class.In my humble opinion of somebody who has never played the game at the very highest level I stand in awe of a player who has done the business against the very best who played in that era.
