RIP: Graham Dilley & Thank You for the Magical Memory of Headingley ’81

How sad to hear about the death of the former England cricketer, Graham Dilley, at the relatively young age of 52. I was twelve years old in 1981 when I watched him on telly providing fabulous support to Ian Botham in the awesome third Test against Australia: probably the greatest Test Match ever! It’s certainly the best that I have ever seen. Thank you for the magical memories, Graham, and may you rest in peace.

Here is the YouTube link I found featuring Botham and Dilley (he is the one in the hard blue hat at the other end of the pitch).
