Cricket Quotations

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

My approach to cricket has been reasonably simple: it was about giving everything to the team, it was about playing with dignity and it was about upholding the spirit of the game. I hope I have done some of that. I have failed at times, but I have never stopped trying. It is why I leave with sadness but also with pride.
Rahul Dravid

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

To me, it doesn't matter how good you are. Sport is all about playing and competing. Whatever you do in cricket and in sport, enjoy it, be positive and try to win.
Ian Botham

I feel when somebody has been playing cricket for a long time, he creates a separate identity for himself.
Sachin Tendulkar
