Beefy did concede that Hadlee was the best bowler of the 4. He was probably just peeved that Imran got picked ahead of him by Hadlee.

Botham did not look pleased that Hadlee picked Imran over him. Ha, Ha.

Yeah, this kinda makes sense. Imran and Botham were the best batsmen amongst this quartet, and Imran was a better bowler than Beefy in all conditions.
