Quotable Quotes

"You need to be an athlete. Look at Flintoff - he is not an athlete. He is a big man who bowls extremely quick, but his body has suffered, and that's why he is not cut for the longer game. "
-Allan Donald reveals in a Cricinfo interview what you need to be a fast bowler. I know there are a lot of Freddie lovers out there (and you all need to find a new idol) but before you fly into rage, this is Allan Donald speaking. You cannot deny that fast bowlers don't get any better than White Lightning. So if he is saying Flintoff is not an athlete he must be right. Now that he has retired, Freddie will always be remembered as the burger stuffed, one hit wonder with weak limbs.

"I'll chew his ear off. "
-Phil Hughes shares how he plans to sledge Sachin Tendulkar in the upcoming tour. Has no one told him that Tendulkar has been dealing with sledging Australians for years now? Do your homework properly little one. And for the love of God, find some other tactic to break the opposition. Like you know...actually scoring some runs?

"We all know that we have a long way to go to be classed as a real threat to the top four teams but they will no longer take us lightly."
-Jamie Siddons, current coach of Bangladesh, speaks about the future of his team. Damn right we can't be taken lightly anymore. Just get other teams to play us as well okay? How will we ever learn to be one of the top four teams if we keep on playing Zimbabwe? We need to be exposed to all conditions. And it's not like we are Pakistan, with bombers in every corner! We will keep the international cricketers safe and sound.

You hear that top four? Come to Bangladesh. Or else...

Er, the Hughes comment refers to him asking SRT for advice during his India trip. He is being very respectful in wanting to elicit as much advice as possible from the Master.

Samir, I stand corrected. I read the explanation wrong.
