Botham: Brearley was an amazing captain to play under

Mike Brearley's extraordinary galvanising of Botham is regarded as one of the greatest feats of sporting psychology of all time Botham recovered a poor captaincy record and lack of form to take a firstinnings 6 for 95 and score 50 and his famous 149 not out in the third Test at Headingley bowl a spell of 5 wickets for 1 run in the fourth Test at Edgbaston score 118 from 102 balls in the fifth Test at Old Trafford and take a 10wicket match haul 6 for 125 and 4 for 128 in the sixth Test at the Oval a series now known Botham's Ashes.
