    It's good to see old rivalries are still alive and well, it just makes things a lot more interesting.

    Would love to see what was said.

    Ian Chappell looks quite solid for a sixty-seven year old but yeah, I would back Ian Botham to win a fight.

    Nothing's ever gonna change between those two.
    The difference is though, Chappell started the situation. If someone walks past you and throws a bit of abuse your way you're going to react, anyone would.

    I often don't agree with him, but at least he gives a **** about the game.
    Exactly, he really loves being involved in the game and is a cricket lover.

    He at least makes an effort to stay in touch with the game.

    A source of mine (who is generally very reliable) who works in the media reckons this is how it went down:

    "Botham: Hello ****
    Chappelli: How long have you been working on that one? Good to hear you’re still a ****ing idiot
    Botham: Right, let’s settle this right here

    Before they can, channel nine minder steps between them "

    Apparently "Hello ****" is how they've been greeting each other since the 70s, according to Dean Jones.

    It would be like catching up with Corrin every now and again.

    I'm a huge fan of them both. This was certainly hilarious, though.

    Botham is just a tool.
    Chapelli is a tool, when he comes on TV, i mute it and turn the radio on. I'm pretty sure everything he did on the field was brilliantly correct if you ask him.

    Luckily the channel 9 minder stepped in, we could have had another Hookes
