Favorite Cricket Game Quotes

1. "Cricket pays well, so a lot of people are naturally drawn towards the game. But to carve a niche in non-cricket sports is not easy. So state governments need to be proactive.

Author: Gagan Narang

4. "[I]f Modi is toast, it will in one sense be a tremendous pity. In his way, he represents a third generation in cricket's governance. For a hundred years and more, cricket was run by administrators, who essentially maintained the game without going out of their way to develop it. More recently it has been run by managers, with just an ounce or two of strategic thought. Modi was neither; he was instead a genuine entrepreneur. He has as much feeling for cricket as Madonna has for madrigals, but perhaps, because he came from outside cricket's traditional bureaucratic circles, he brought a vision and a common touch unexampled since Kerry Packer."
Author: Gideon Haigh
5. "[F]or all its reputation for conservatism, cricket in its history has demonstrated a remarkable capacity for innovation. What game has survived subjection to such extraordinary manipulations, having been prolonged to 10 days (in Durban 70 years ago), truncated to as few as 60 balls (in Hong Kong every year), and remained recognisable in each instance?"
Author: Gideon Haigh

I'm not interested in coaching international sides. I don't mind short-term coaching. I don't want to get involved in the politics of teams."
Author: Glenn Turner
8. "Down the mine I dreamed of cricket; I bowled imaginery balls in the dark; I sent the stumps spinning and heard them rattling in the tunnels. No mishap was going to stop me from bowling in the real game, especially this one."
Author: Harold Larwood

Author: Matthew Hayden

Author: Rahul Dravid

Author: Stephen Fry
18. "Geez, I just played cricket because I loved the game. I never thought about it much, never really had any formal coaching."

Author: Thierry Henry
20. "But cricket was no mere game. Cricket was important. [S]he could never help reading about cricket. [S]he read the scores in the stop press first, then how it was a hot day; then about a murder case."
Author: Virginia Woolf
