THE ''King'' is looking for a new throne and ''I'' still has a beef with English cricket. King Viv Richards, arguably the greatest batsman in the post World War II era, and I. T. Botham - also known as Ian ''Beefy'' Botham - have brought their question and answer road-show to Hong Kong. Their ''King and I'' show, at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile tonight, will give cricket fans, and sports fans in general, an opportunity to pick the brains of two of the most colourful and brilliant cricketers of recent time. The pair warmed up for the show by answering questions for the press yesterday. Former West Indies captain Richards, having conquered the world's best bowlers in his career, revealed how he would one day like to get into a position of authority - possibly at the very hierarchy of West Indian cricket. The Antiguan said: ''I've seen it all in cricket. I think I can help players who have done so much for cricket and see to it that they are recognised. ''I could start with the Antiguan Board and work my way up to the big boys - and that's when the trouble starts.'' Botham, who has had his fair share of conflict with English cricket officialdom, feels England's standing in the international scene will not improve until the rulers are more in touch with the modern game. He said: ''I think there should be more younger people involved in the decision-making. ''There are too many people who haven't played for 30 years picking teams.'' West Indies are currently hosting the England side in a five-Test series. The home side are holding the advantage in the first Test, which restarts today after a rest day.
