Pithy remarks and quotable quotes. Wordsworth takes the best statements of the week and packages them into one exciting feature. From quotes that help you delve further into the psyche of players to acerbic barbs from incensed cricketers to remarks that are just downright hilarious, we have them all. They may not quite be "from the mouths of babes and sucklings," but they are just as interesting.
February 1st week
I think people got a little bit excited about how well we played in the Test matches and a couple of the one-dayers. People think we should just turn up and beat this lot, but they are a very fine side at home.
- Nasser Hussain, after England's loss at Kanpur.
He is a top player and almost a pleasure to bowl at. He is probably the only player I would actually sit and watch bat.
- Darren Gough, after Sachin Tendulkar's innings at Kanpur.
I thought he should have scored a hundred today, but he is a fantastic player and will be a great entertainer for all the crowds.
- Sourav Ganguly, after Virender Sehwag's innings at Kanpur.
I regard him as a very talented cricketer, a genuine all-rounder who can bowl quick and score useful runs.
- Bob Woolmer on Ben Hollioake.
If you put them on the off-side, he hits you through leg, and if you put them on leg, he hits you through the off.
- Darren Gough, on Sachin Tendulkar.
She is due to give birth in the next couple of weeks, but if she has been watching all the excitement here on television, I am concerned the baby may have come already.
- Ashley Giles, on his pregnant wife, after a close win at Delhi.
Getting runs is great, but they count only when you win. I was disappointed when I got out, but I felt that we should have still won it from there with 60 runs to get in 10 overs.
- Sourav Ganguly, after his return to form at Delhi.
Twenty-four hours a day there are well-wishers asking for photographs and autographs. It is hard to come to terms with. You don't get much of that in Durham on a Monday morning.
- Paul Collingwood, on the Indian experience.
I have got the odd shout that I am a big lump from Lancashire and things like that. It is just like being at Headingley really, but I don't understand them and I don't suppose they understand me.
- Andrew Flintoff, on his banter with the crowd at Delhi.
