Great pundit and the real hero in Botham’s Ashes. RIP.

He'll never be forgotten for his Herculean efforts for England with the ball. A tremendous bowler and match winner.

Have to say that he looked very poorly last time I saw him on Sky.

Rest In Peace Bob..............

Awful news.

Great pundit and a genuine English cricketing hero.

If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor

Terrible news. A genuine England great and just as fantastic as a pundit, the miserable old git. Always had me laughing even in defeat with his inimitable moans and groans. RIP.

RIP bob.
Great guy and a top bowler.
On his day he could make a few runs with slogging it here n there.....

My all time favourite Dale player Mr Lyndon Symmonds

RIP Bob.
One of Englands finest.

Sad news.

Clearly remember him having Big Clive caught behind 1st ball in a Sunday League match Warwicks'/Lancs...after I'd ramped everyone up to 'watch this innings now'. Famous last words!

Must have been an incredibly fit guy in his heyday; that really long run up and generating such pace.

Didn't he try to market a Duncan Fearnley bat with holes drilled all the way through from back to front; a bit of a gimmic like Lilley's aluminium effort that merely destroyed cricket balls!!!

This is very sad news. He was jousting with Rob Key on The Debate just very recently. He was a great, no nonsense pundit.

At his best, he was a world class paceman but he had to be 'in the mood' or rather, 'in the groove'. And boy, was he in the groove when he destroyed the Aussies 2nd innings at Headingley in '81, without which there'd be no Botham's Ashes

I've never seen a sportsman so absolutely shut off from the rest of the world and focused on one simple task, like an unleashed fury

RIP Bob Willis

A fine bowler indeed.

Agree without Bob Willis there is no Bothams Ashes.

What sad news. Great cricketer and a great character on Sky, often playing up to his own caricature.


What's the 'Know all clique' and who's in it?

Childhood hero of mine was Bob.

One of the most unorthodox run-ups, of great length, and an unorthodox action because of career-long knee injuries.

But one of the fastest and most hostile ever to wear the three lions.
