Ian Chappell and Ian Botham have been engaged in a contentious feud that dates back to a bar fight at the Hilton Hotel in Melbourne in 1977. Chappell, a renowned Australian cricketer at the time, recalls seeing Botham injure his shoulder while playing a club cricket match. Botham, however, denies this claim and says that he received first aid and was told he could play the following week. The tension between the two escalated when they met at the Hilton, with Chappell overhearing Botham criticize Australian beer. This led to a verbal confrontation, with Botham accusing Chappell of avoiding playing in England due to fear of fast bowlers. The disagreement reached a breaking point when Chappell claimed that Botham threatened him with an empty beer glass, a claim that Botham vehemently denies. The two men have remained adversaries for the past 46 years, and the documentary “The Longest Feud” seeks to uncover the reasons behind their ongoing animosity.
