These two must really hate each other. You can cut the atmosphere with a knife when they are commentating together.

Both need to be more professional imo

Alot of it goes back to when hussain was skipper and beefy helped out in selection meetings.

Hussain in his book slaughters beefy claiming hes pretty much clueless and an aftertimer

Botham is a real man. Hussain is a creep. Never liked the look of him at all.

Beefy is clueless on tactics , if his declaration advice was followed you'd lose 4 out of five , flat track golden arm bully.

AWTA, sounds like he's got him pegged perfectly.


true, look at botham's skipper record, he was completely useless, fair enough he played a lot of games against the windies but england should never have lost that many matches. hussain's a grumpy sod, but grumpy sods have often made good captains, while loudmouthed drunken all rounders have rarely if ever.

Botham = better cricketer, Nasser = better captain, Nasser = better pundit.

well put sterling .. thats about the sum of it .. boths got the príckache cos a lesser cktr criticized his selectorial/tactical abilities and nasser has got the same cos he knows both was a better cktr ..

This is an extract from hussains book in 2004 -

"Yes, Ian Botham is a top man, but there was never any consistency in his arguments. Hed say one thing one day and then suddenly hed be saying that the same bloke he had been pushing for a year was now complete rubbish"

"In my opinion Ian Botham was a genius who could do things on a cricket pitch that no other man could, but he couldnt really explain to you how he did it"

"I was virtually listening to what he thought I should do and then doing the exact opposite" :D

No wonder they aint that close in the comms box

can't imagine nass having a chuff on a big fat joint either .. :p
Report silly seal December 28, 2009 10:29 PM GMT
but nass is absolutely spot on..

botham is amazing talent with bat and ball, but crap commentator and strategist... comes across as someone who would struggle to describe his own brilliant performance...
