Among the cast of characters who will feature in Botham's own Who's Who of cricket will be top players such as Viv Richards, Brian Close and Shane Warne. Umpire Dickie Bird and the late John Arlott will also have a place in Beefy's Hall of Fame. Others associated with cricket include Mick Jagger, Sir Paul Getty and Nancy (who used to cook the lunches at Lord's and was responsible for many a cricketer's expanding waistline); and many more who in Beefy's opinion have been a positive influence in the game during his era.
Published immediately after the conclusion of the 2001 Ashes series.
