I was on holiday abroad when England won THAT test at Headingly in 1981 thanks to Bob taking 8 second innings wickets. The first I knew of the victory was in buying an English newspaper that was only available a day late (no internet in those days) Utterly astonished at what had happened given the small total the Australians had to make for the win. Not the only time Bob bowled magnificently for Warwickshire and England but certainly the day that everybody who was around then, will always remember.
I knew a bloke that played agaist Bob Willis in a charity cricket match. Bob's first delivery was dealt with easily, and the bloke I knew called down the pitch and asked Bob if that was the best he had to offer. He didn't even see the next delivery, just heard a whirring sound as the ball passed very close to his ear.
