    Well deserved.

    Don't really like him much though.

    CW Article

    Nice summary there pasag.

    Personally I think it's great that Botham has been knighted, his services to charity have been unbeleivable for quite a few years now. Still sounds weird, Sir Ian Botham, in a romantic kind of way.

    He's become very stuffy and pompous in middle age so it suits him much more that it would've done when he was younger. Smiles almost as seldom as Bob Willis.

    I'm pretty interested to see how they discuss it during the cricket tonight (I hope it's not raining) and see how Botham handles the accolade and attention.
