Review of "Botham's Ashes - The Miracle Of Headingly 81 (DVD)"
I bought this DVD for my brother for christmas and is a great DVD for any cricket fan.Introduced by Sir Ian Botham himself the DVD features BBC highlights from all five days of the Third Ashes Test Match between England and Australia at Headingley in 1981.
The Third Test at Headingley, found England - already one down in the six match series agasint Australia - in disarray. After poor performances, Ian Botham had resigned as captain and the selectors had recalled former skipper Mike Brearley to lead the side. Australia won the toss, and immediately set about attacking England's mediocre bowling. English cricketing fans feared the worst and this DVD tells the story of how one man inspired an unforgettable Test Series victory.These highlights include Sir Ian Botham's 6 for 95 in Australia's 1st innings, 50 in England's 1st innings and 149 not out in England's 2nd innings. Also Bob Willis's amazing 8 for 43 in Australia's 2nd innings. Commentary from Richie Benaud, Ted Dexter, Tom Graveney, Christopher Martin-Jenkins and Peter West.
As well as highlights this DVD includes an interview with Sir Ian Botham and player statistics. Running time is 100 minutes. This DVD cost me £8.99 which is a fair price and well worth the money for all cricket fans, satisfaction guarenteed!
