Bob Willis

Cricket fraternity pay tributes to England’s speedster Bob Willis after his demise

Former England captain and fast bowler Bob Willis has passed away at the age of 70. Willis led the English team between 1982 and 1984.

He played 90 Tests and finished his international career with 325 wickets. His most memorable performance came against Australia in 1981. During the third Ashes Test that year, Willis dismantled the Aussies with his lethal bowling and took eight wickets for 43 runs.


At the time of Willis’ retirement, only Australia’s Dennis Lillee had claimed more wickets in Test cricket, and he remains fourth on the all-time list of England wicket-takers after James Anderson, Stuart Broad, and Ian Botham.
