Bob Willis Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

 Bob Willis Towering at 6 feet 6 inches, his curly hair like a bouncy, tangled mop on his head, he steamed from a 30-yard run up, faster than any Englishman since Frank Tyson. Perhaps Fred Trueman was as fast, but in the pre-speed gun days, that remains debatable.

Having made his debut as the partner in pace to John Snow during the triumphant 1970-71 Ashes tour, Willis strangely became far more successful after both his knees were operated on in 1975. Fortunately, at 26, he was still young and full of ambition. Running five miles a day to recover the necessary strength, and almost always grimacing with pain, he came back to enjoy the most rewarding part of his career.

He pulverised the Indians in India alongside John Lever. He ran through the visiting Australians in 1977 and scythed through them again in their backyard in 1978-79, and made short work of the visiting New Zealand and Pakistan teams in the late 1970s. And while the Headingley encounter of 1981 is remembered as the Botham Test, it was Willis who skittled Australia out with 8 for 43 in the final innings to bring about an incredible victory.

When Mike Brearley moved aside, Willis became one of the few fast bowlers to lead his country in Tests. He captained England in 18 Tests, winning 7 and losing 5, victorious in all the home series and on the losing side on all away tours. His bowling, curiously, became more incisive when he lowered himself into the hot seat. In those 18 Tests, he captured 77 wickets at 21.59, several notches above his career average. He also led England in 29 ODIs, including the 1983 World Cup campaign.
