Ian Chappell tells a story about Garry Sobers and Geoff Boycott

They were playing in England and Geoff Boycott went to Garry Sobers and said, "Garry, you seem to get me out lbw a lot. I don't understand it."

Garry was quite good psychologically as well. He said to Boycott, "Unlike a lot of people, Geoffrey, I don't think your technique is that good."

That would have cut Boycott to the core because he prided himself on his technique. "Your front foot is too far across. You can't get your bat around your pad and my inswinger gets you lbw. That's what is happening."

They go out on the field next day and Boycott is batting. Sobers runs up, bowls the first ball, and angles it across Boycott and he edges it to slip.

As he is walking off, Sobey says to him, "Geoffrey, you didn't ask me about the other one."... 😂😂
