Absolute treat, 22 August 2011
Author: Jishnu Bhattacharya from India

I belong to a generation which has not seen Botham play. I've grown up watching the next generation, watching Flintoff being compared to Botham, and wondering who is he anyway. Well, here you go. If you, like me, had seen England doing miracles in 2005, and thought such things were once in a lifetime, this is for you. If you love cricket, and think that cricket is a funny game, this is for you. If you love heroes, and love to hear stories of a phoenix rising from the ashes, this is for you. If you love watching the English win over the Aussies, this is for you! What a brilliant portrayal. Sporting achievements are fleeting, but the recollections last forever. And wouldn't you like to recollect one of the finest test series ever played?
