Sir Ian Botham The Events Room

I remember watching Sir Ian Botham play cricket.  His swashbuckling style was unique and seemed out of place in the world of cricket with cucumber sandwiches and cups of tea.  Everyone recalls the 3rd Ashes Test against Australia at Headingly in July 1981, where Botham and Bob Willis destroyed the Aussies, but his legacy runs far deeper.  Indeed, his charity work after retiring from cricket earned him a knighthood.  So to get the opportunity to meet and photograph this cricketing legend was very special.  On stage with Geoff Miller OBE (ex-England cricketer and selector), they recounted tales from cricket in the 1980s with numerous references to Ashes victories.  Once again, The Events Room had staged a very special sporting lunch at Cornerstone in Cardiff.
