I tend to think that cricket is the greatest thing that God ever created on earth - certainly greater than sex, although sex isn't too bad either.
My dad's method in his madness was to try every sport and then observe what I liked. I played football, tennis, golf, cricket but I loved my snooker.
A cricket ground is a flat piece of earth with some buildings around it.
The only thing I won't watch is darts. And I don't watch cricket. How can you like a game that requires you to take four days off work to follow a Test? And I don't really like golf. I know a lot of English footballers play, but I know that if I go with the club to play, sooner or later I will end up trying to smash the ball with my foot.
It's certainly true that I was brought up in that British amateur tradition, the one which always held that if you were reasonably good at cricket, knew one or two Latin texts and a few zingy Oscar Wilde quotes for dinner parties, you were pretty much ready to go and run some outpost in Hindustan.
Cricket is basically baseball on valium.
I do love cricket - it's so very English.
I am a sports enthusiast, and if given an opportunity, I want to be a sportsman, even today. I want to promote the sport that is indigenous to India. Kabaddi is a matter of national pride. Why can't cricket, hockey, football and kabaddi be given equal platforms and co-exist? I believe that can happen.
Cricket is a pressure game, and when it comes to an India-Pakistan match the pressure is doubled.
Isn't cricket supposed to be a team sport? I feel people should decide first whether cricket is a team game or an individual sport.
If one man is representing India in cricket, then yes, blame that person when things go wrong.
I'm completely cricketed out. If I never have to write another word about cricket again, I'll be a happy man.
In the game of cricket, a hero is a person who respects the game and does not corrupt the game. The one who doesn't or corrupts the game, they are the villain. They should be punished, and they have been punished in the past.
If you play good cricket, a lot of bad things get hidden.
My aim is to play Test matches. For me, there is a different feel of Test cricket as it tests your character. You come to know about your mental toughness, and most importantly, there is another level of satisfaction as a player.
I love England and I love cricket.
For reasons that baffle me still, my high school sports coaches put me in the first division of the rugby, cricket, and soccer teams.
I was complexed and awkward that I was good for nothing and was always lying. I would lie to my school friends that I was a stud in my colony and to my colony friends that I was a stud in the school cricket and football teams, though I was in no team.
Geez, I just played cricket because I loved the game. I never thought about it much, never really had any formal coaching.
Baseball has the great advantage over cricket of being sooner ended.
George Bernard Shaw
I feel when somebody has been playing cricket for a long time, he creates a separate identity for himself.
Critics haven't taught me my cricket, and they don't know what my body and mind are up to.
I think if you're writing about cricket, you're obviously writing about power, because cricket is such a loaded sport, much more so than soccer.
During my 21 years of playing cricket, I have never been approached by anyone or offered a bribe.
Cricket makes no sense to me. I find it beautiful to watch and I like that they break for tea. That is very cool, but I don't understand. My friends from The Clash tried to explain it years and years ago, but I didn't understand what they were talking about.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
