WordsWorth

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.

November 1st week

Our preparation has been peculiar, to say the least
- Indian coach John Wright, after the cancellation of the tour match at Chatsworth..

A few times during the match I really thought that we were playing an away game in India.
- Neil McKenzie, in his BBC column, on the strong Indian presence at the Durban final..

You might do eight laps of the ground, but you could still be unfit.
- Indian physiotherapist Andrew Leipus..

Only if it degenerates in future, we would say (anything about surgery)
- Rahul Dravid, on his shoulder fitness scare..

I have developed this (googly) over the years. It is not difficult to detect but it spins more.
- Anil Kumble, on his new googly..

During the tour we do not want to disturb, and hence we are waiting for their arrival.
- Jagmohan Dalmiya, on his concerns about the Indian team's dismal showing..

I don't need to settle any scores with Ganguly now. I think I settled it quite effectively in the match, which mattered, the final of the one-day series.
- South African captain Shaun Pollock..

As a batter, I can't understand how bowlers can come into a Test match and not know what line and length to bowl.
- Herschelle Gibbs, on the first day's play of the first Test.

My first line to him when he came in was `I know you're tense. You're never going to be this tense again, so enjoy the moment.'
- Sachin Tendulkar, on his advice to debutant Virender Sehwag..
