Gatting on 1986/7 Ashes - Part One of Three

In the first part of our exclusive interview with Mike Gatting, the former England captain recalls the build up to the 1986/7 Ashes series.

From the famous 'can't bat, can't bowl, can't field' line to Ian Botham 'looking after' Phil DeFreitas, Gatting reflects on the early stages of his first tour as skipper.

After a series of poor showings in warm up games, England performed when they needed to, winning the First Test in Brisbane and holding their own in Perth where three batsmen - Broad, Gower and Richards - hit centuries.

Part two coming soon...
