    I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER

    And Border mostly batted at 4 (and no. 3 is Chappell's 2nd most batted position after no. 4)

    I don't think he was 'involved'. He got his debut because of it, but he was a bystander
