Ian Botham. From the days when you could still be a buccaneer and play at the highest level.

Sir Ian Botham - pictured here in 1981 smoking a cigar before his match-winning 149 not out during the third Test against Australia at Headingley - said he now only plays cricket

After the miracle of Leeds 1981 England faced the Aussies at Edgbaston. Again they were faced with defeat until Mike Brearley threw the ball to the hero of Headingley Ian Botham who promptly informed his skipper that he didn't want to bowl. But Brearley was able to persuade the young allrounder to take the ball and an amazing spell where Botham took 5 wickets for one run saw England home. Here Botham runs off with a souvenir stump after his heroics had put England in the Ashes driving seat
