Pithy remarks and quotable quotes. Wordsworth takes the best statements of the week and packages them into one exciting feature.

They may not quite be "from the mouths of babes and sucklings," but they are just as interesting.

- Marcus Trescothick, on Harbhajan Singh.

There's probably more danger going to Heathrow or using the tube than visiting Bangalore and Bombay.
- Mark Ramprakash.

I would be very surprised if any player in this current climate said he would be happy to go to India.
- Graham Thorpe.

When you've got a stadium with 60,000 people there, the England team is a target for someone who wants to make a point.
- Ian Botham.

It's not just about beer. We're there for the cricket first and to enjoy ourselves second.
- Paul Burnham, one of the founding Barmy Army members.
