    Good show from Bob Dylan for agreeing to be patron of the prostrate cancer charity set up in Bob Willis's name.
    Willis (like myself) was a huge Dylan fan. Bob Dylan himself is aware of Willis's career and commented: "Bob Willis was a great sportsman who was taken too soon."

    I didn’t know what the cancer stickman meant I do now... (also kudos to bumble for wearing a Black Lives Matter patch every life matters animal and human why can’t we all just get along...) cricket is an amazing game and Bob Willis was one of the finest exponents of our game a hugely funny man a tremendous cricketer just brilliant...
    The title of his book is absolutely correct RGD Willis is a cricketer and a gentleman rest easy Bob...

    Bob will always be missed . Never a commentator has such audacity to say
    Whatever criticism comes in his mind . Richie Benaud , Bill Lawry and Tony
    Greig made my childhood days while Bob painted my youth . Vividly and fondly
    remember those days of watching SKY SPORTS on Sopcast and Tv U player while
    I was in Beijing as an exchange student . The Verdict was the best cricket program .
    I would have preferred Sky doing a program in his memory when he was alive .
    How fitting tribute that would have been . Bob u always will be missed .

    It's hard to believe in all the games Bob Willis played for England he never got 10 wickets in the game, especially when he got eight against the Aussies in that famous game at Headingley in 1981 in the second innings and still didn't get 10 in the match. Bob Willis was one of the greatest bowlers in my personal opinion for England and his bounce was always on the mark and if you didn't duck or Hook he would have you.
