ON THIS DAY: Botham takes five-wickets for one run

At Edgbaston 1981 Australia needed only 151 to win, but England’s talismanic allrounder had other ideas. 

After smashing a sensational match-winning ton at Headingley, he won the game with the ball this time around, taking five wickets for one run.

England won the Test by just 23 runs, putting them 2-1 up in the series.
