2. Ian Botham
Regarded by many as one of England’s greatest ever players, Botham finished his international career with a wicket haul of 528. His career spanned 15 years from 1977 to 1992, in which time he managed 383 wickets, as well as 5200 runs with the bat.
One of the biggest highlights of Botham’s career was when he spearheaded England’s famous Ashes victory over Australia in 1981. His dramatic performance at Headingley saw the Somerset all-rounder taking figures of 6-95 in the first innings and then batting to an unbeaten 149.
