Hero of Headingley
Only 52 as well
RIP Mr G Dilley.
Fair point, FF, Willis did bowl 'em out
but on this sad day I'm thinking of Dilley's supporting role to Botham's slog
A hero rather than THE hero
When they talk about Headingley 81 I always think Dilley isn't given enough credit.
Ok Willis was outstanding and Beefy scored 100 but without Dilley it wouldn't have happened. It isn't like he just held up an emd and let Beefy score, he actually scored 56 out of a 117 partnership. Given how Beefy played I doubt main people shared a 100 partnership and managed to get such high percentage of the runs.
RIP Graham Dilley
