Ian Chappell narrating the events when he and Ian Botham got involved in a furious fight in a car pack after the fourth day of Adelaide Test.

 

Botham was waiting for his Sky transport to collect him outside the Adelaide Oval, the Daily Mail reported.

Chappell muttered something highly provocative as he went past. A surprised Botham turned around to retort: 'What did you say?'

 

When Chappell made another incendiary remark, both of them dropped their bags and were at each others' throats before being quickly separated.

Chappell’s version is that Botham told him about not wanting to tour England that year because 'too many blokes are looking to knock your block off'. Chappell says he then walked calmly out, pursued by a ranting Botham.
