Default Quotes from International Cricket

I am creating another thread in which anyone can post 'Quotes' from players, officials or anyone related with cricket. The quotes should be interesting or funny.

Here's some quotes..

'Expect a ruling shortly that spectators will need to wear slippers and cut the crusts of their sandwiches before being allowed into grounds. Mind you, anyone who has lifted one of my wife's sandwiches will vouch for their potential as a weapon of mass destruction. '

Martin Williamson on his Cricinfo Column based on the incident of throwing Sandwiches and Shoe in a county match.

"You've got to make it tough," "No freebies ... target him. Break a finger if you want. That'll stop him getting ten wickets."

Nasser Hussain when asked on air how to bowl to Muttiah Muralitharan, who was at time gleefully smacking England's bowlers around Trent Bridge.

"I didn't like them anyway. A few of them were worthy but I wouldn't take their names now and make them feel happy. I hated conceding runs."

Curtly Ambrose, when asked about the most admired batsman.

"Never enough! Whatever it is in life, it's never enough."
Who else but Shane Warne on his life's philosophy.

" What's more, if you believe the chap, then Ganguly's going to be back in the Indian team by October at the latest. "Sourav will be back in action any time between July 15 and October 15."

Kartik Chatterjee, Sourav's family priest.

" I don't want to be the next Viv Richards, I just want to be Kevin Pietersen, the best Kevin Pietersen can be."
Kevin Pietersen

"You miss it. It's a bit like eating cod and then having to go back and eat sardines. Once you have tasted it, there is nothing like it."
Ray Price gets all fishy about wanting to return to international cricket for England


"I had just about forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder."
Rahul Dravid talking to Dean Jones is forced to relive his dreadful stroke that dismissed him in the first innings at St Lucia


"He is a positive guy, just like me. That's why I guess the whole of India loves him. But if he was not a 'keeper and was a bowler, I would hit him for 10 sixes back. I am looking for revenge."
Dave Mohammed (another potential blaster of our time?) sends out a warning after being carted around by Mahendra Singh Dhoni in Antigua.

"I definitely chucked a few but the umpires didn't pick it up and there were no TV replays. On matting wickets, an offspin chuck got a lot of wickets."
Incoming ICC president Percy Sonn on his days as a club cricketer

"If one-day cricket was pyjama cricket, then Twenty20 is underwear cricket. This cricket is like a burger, you can have it once a week but for a whole meal, you need to return to Test cricket. More than once a week, and it will give you a tummy ache" -- Navjot Sidhu


"Being on 99 has the habit of turning sane men into idiots. I said "Sorry mate" and told him I was an idiot"
Andrew Strauss on his poor call which resulted in Ian Bell's run out

" I've seen him [Murali] crumble under pressure. I've seen batsmen taking him on going for like 80 in ten overs and they take him off." AB de Villiers seems to have seen what nobody else has even imagined

AB de V was only dreaming. Soon he will find out how Murali crushes him and piles pressure on SA.

"I'd really like to be able to be a batsman who bowls. The management said to me 'we'd like to use you in the Tests - you can either make a fool of yourself or hit some good areas' - and that's what I want to do. Hit some good areas and keep the run rate down. Who knows - I might bowl 15 or 20 overs in a Test."
What's next for AB de Villiers? The promising opening batsman, wicket keeper and brilliant fieldsman wants to do even more.

"If he bowls that many overs then we'll probably be chasing 550."
His coach, Mickey Arthur, fully endorses de Villiers' ambition.

Quote ... unquote

"This idea that umpires are always right is a load of old cobblers. What I want to know is: Who umpires the umpires? The players suffer from their mistakes, but no one ever seems to get rid of the umpires themselves. Being an umpire is a people job: that's why Dickie Bird was good at it. Yes, he was a loony, and he made mistakes - everyone does. But he knew how to deal with people, so they respected him."
Straight talking from Geoff Boycott
"All these ICC officials sitting in their tax haven in Dubai and saying the umpire's always right - that's not going to help anyone. They've got to forget about their big egos for a moment and let us move on."
And some more straight talking from Boycott this time aimed at the ICC
"I was shocked. I thought it was a silly letter."
ICC president Malcolm Speed on his reaction to Darrell Hair's letter offering to quit for $500,000
"He does what he thinks is right regardless of the consequences. My immediate reaction was 'typical Darrell'."
ICC general manager cricket Dave Richardson on his reaction
"I don't care what the umpiring is like. In Pakistan and India during the late 1970s and '80s we would never have been on the field if we had thought that way."
Geoff Lawson, the former Australian fast bowler, feels that Inzamam-ul-Haq erred in refusing to play
"The jails would be empty if we had to rely on video evidence to prove any crime."
ICC president Malcolm Speed when asked if the lack of TV coverage to support claims of ball tampering would lead to Code of Conduct charges against Inzamam-ul-Haq being dropped

"When bombs go off in Karachi and Colombo everyone wants to go home. When bombs go off in London, no one says anything. That is first-world hypocrisy and we have to live with it."
Michael Holding

"There is a double standard at work in cricket and this episode has only highlighted it. When England used reverse-swing to beat the Australians in the 2005 Ashes, everyone said it was great skill. When Pakistan does it, the opposite happens, no one thinks it is great skill. Everyone associates it with skullduggery.

"You can ask any fast bowler. If he says he has never tampered with the ball, he either has just started playing, or is lying."
Michael Holding reveals the guilty pleasure shared by all fast bowlers

"Who is John Wright? have not read the book and have no intentions to read it either."

24.4 Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, OUT, drifting into Collingwood who comes forward, the ball turns enough and raps him on the pad and Afridi roars an appeal. That's about as plum as a rather large plum from a big plum tree in Plumshire

PD Collingwood lbw b Shahid Afridi 14 (29b 2x4 0x6) sr: 48.27

"Binge drinking and teenage pregnancies are the only games the English invented where they are still ranked No.1 in the world, and like some of the dregs who shouted "cheat" at Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq, some of us would be better off teetotal."
Mike Walters of the Mirror on a day out at Bristol

. 29th over: A collector's item - Inzamam, the new batsman, runs a three. Strangely, no singles are taken in the rest of the over.
30th over: Good over from Clarke out there in the gloaming. I think. It's hard to be sure who's doing what - if it wasn't for Pakistan's semi-luminous clothing, we'd be lost
31st over: Inzi gets busy on Broad and takes ten off the over. That collector's item of an Inzi run three has suddenly gone down in value - Inzi takes another

32nd over: Incredible scenes - another Inzi three! What else has he got lined up this weekend - a 10km road race early on Sunday morning? BBC Text Commentry on yesterdays match.

"Even my father can play club cricket in England."
Zimbabwe coach Kevin Curran, who has slammed club cricket in England before, has another pop after saying that his charges do not benefit from playing in such matches. Curran's father is 78
