Ashes Cricket TV - Botham On Playing And Beating Australia - Cricket World TV

In this cricket video interview, former England captain and 1981 Ashes-winning hero Sir Ian Botham talks about his experience of playing Australia.

He talks about how they are the most competitive cricketers he has ever played against and how nice a feeling it is to win against them, something England will be trying to emulate when they take on Australia in the 2013 series which gets underway at Trent Bridge on 10th July.

Botham played a key role in England's Ashes successes in 1981, when his 149 not out inspired them to victory at Headingley, and 1986/7 when they toured Down Under.

He was speaking alongside former British & Irish Lion Gavin Hastings and Croatian tennis star Goran Ivanisevic at a Unibet event to launch a packed summer of sport.
