During my 21 years of playing cricket, I have never been approached by anyone or offered a bribe.
The only thing I've ever been interested in teaching anyone in life is cricket.
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.
I do love cricket - it's so very English.
I am a sportsman and not a politician. I am a sportsman and will always remain one. I am not going to enter politics giving up cricket, which is my life. I will continue to play cricket.
When there is time to think about cricket, I think but when there is time to be with family, I try to do justice to that aspect of my life as well.
One afternoon when I was 9, my dad told me I'd be skipping school the next day. Then we drove 12 hours from Melbourne to Sydney for the Centenary Test, a once-in-a-lifetime commemorative cricket match. It was great fun - especially for a kid who was a massive sports fan.
You might not think that's cricket, and it's not, it's motor racing.
But eventually it is a game of cricket.
Like an author, a cricketer signs his name on every innings he bats or bowls in; indeed for every cricket ball that challenges him on the field.
I always dreamt of holding the bat and winning games for India. That was my inspiration to take up cricket.
I was playing cricket first and my cricket coach was the one that introduced me to track and field.
Many Continentals think life is a game; the English think cricket is a game.
The era of playing aggressive cricket and to have the mid-on up is gone. You now try to read the mindset of a batsman.

I understand cricket - what's going on, the scoring - but I can't understand why.
I am very happy playing and showing off my talent on the cricket field and have no plans to enter Bollywood.
If you play good cricket, a lot of bad things get hidden.
I'm proud of what I've achieved in cricket, as once I didn't think I was good enough.
A cricket ball broke my nose when I was a kid so I couldn't breath through it. Before I had it operated on I used to stand on stage with my mouth slightly open.
I love England and I love cricket.
Cricket needs brightening up a bit. My solution is to let the players drink at the beginning of the game, not after. It always works in our picnic matches.
At the international level, one has to keep working hard and develop new skills. International cricket is all about improving yourself.
I'm a big sports fan. Football. Cricket.
I have made a few mistakes early on that I admit myself, and there have been times when I have gone over the top and done things that you shouldn't do in international cricket, but that's how you learn.
It was a personal decision for me to stand and say that cricket is all I have in life, there's nothing I need to do other than cricket. If I want to achieve whatever I thought as a kid, I need to work hard and not let it go to waste.
