IAN BOTHAM

Ian Botham
Botham bagged a pair during the Lord’s Test in 1981.

The star-all rounder from England was known for changing the direction of the game with his no-holds-barred batting. Coming down the order, his “devil-may-care” attitude made him a favourite of the crowds. Apart from his bowling, he swung many a matches in England’s favour with his swashbuckling batting, and is most remembered for the Headingley Test of 1981, when he turned around the match with an unbeaten 149.

However, just one match before that, Ian Botham fell for a duck in both innings of the Lord’s Test, and the match eventually ended in a draw.
