  Cricinfo - Players and Officials - Sir Ian Botham
Dominant and domineering, Ian Botham was not merely the top English cricketer of the 1980s but the leading sports personality.
Within a year of being elevated from Somerset to his England debut in 1977, he was undisputed as the country's leading all-rounder; within three years he was captain; within four, he had resigned (a minute before being sacked), his form shot to pieces.
By the end of it, sober judges were wondering if Botham had done more harm by good by making all England believe, as he did, that cricket matches are won by inspiration not preparation.

'Beefy' as Ian Botham was affectionately nicknamed by friends and contemporaries because of his ever increasing girth was probably the most charismatic cricketer in the history of English cricket.

Botham said he would want England to bat first if they won the toss in Mumbai and post a huge total and if that doesn't happen then the tourists can forget about any chance of squaring the series.
