Ian Botham's ASK BEEFY

I'd also love to see what 'Deadly' Derek Underwood would do because slower bowlers are so important in Twenty20.

Q: Dear Ian, Should England stick to the initial Ashes squad or should they bring in form players from the county championship if things aren't going that well? JOHN EVES.

Ashes this summer. …
