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.

January 1st week

It's just cricket, cricket, cricket. There's not much to do in the evenings, so it's quite hard to switch off mentally as well as physically. - James Foster, on England's hectic schedule in India.

After me, there has been no quality wicket-keeper in the country. - Syed Kirmani

At the end of the third Test, the overwhelming feeling was one of relief...without the slightest doubt, England are the most unattractive and boring side to have played cricket in India. - Sunil Gavaskar, in his newspaper column.

In the 1970s, India played some crippling cricket, with the spinners bowling 10 overs an hour. If memory serves me right, Mr Gavaskar was captain of that team. - David Graveney, Professional Cricketers Association chief, in response to Gavaskar's comments.

It was a bit of a shock. I certainly didn't expect getting the Man of the Match award. - Andrew Flintoff

Losing 1-0, you don't crack open the champagne, but I am very pleased with the way this young side played. - England captain Nasser Hussain

Nasser Hussain captained very well, though I was not keen on his negative tactics - I had to turn off the TV at one point. - Farokh Engineer, in an online column.

I'm disappointed at how I missed the hundred in Bangalore. I thought I had it in my pocket. - Sachin Tendulkar

It is worrying for us that he is not doing well. This patch comes in every cricketer's life. Unfortunately, in his case, it has prolonged quite a lot. - Chairman of selectors Chandu Borde.

I now firmly believe that I can commit myself fully to cricket again and I hope to play a full part in both series (India and New Zealand) - Graham Thorpe confirming his availability for the upcoming England tours.
