Cricket Quotations

Baseball has the great advantage over cricket of being sooner ended.
George Bernard Shaw

I hate losing and cricket being my first love, once I enter the ground it's a different zone altogether and that hunger for winning is always there.
Sachin Tendulkar

Cricket is a pressure game, and when it comes to an India-Pakistan match the pressure is doubled.
Imran Khan

Any active sportsman has to be very focused; you've got to be in the right frame of mind. If your energy is diverted in various directions, you do not achieve the results. I need to know when to switch on and switch off: and the rest of the things happen around that. Cricket is in the foreground, the rest is in the background.
Sachin Tendulkar

I suppose I'm a cultural Anglican, and I see evensong in a country church through much the same eyes as I see a village cricket match on the village green. I have a certain love for it.
Richard Dawkins
