"Spin bowling is a challenging art and it's a slow death for the batsmen. Spin bowling is all about variation and deception."

"Cricket is a team game, but a captain plays a pivotal role. He's the one who takes the team forward."
"My father said, 'Cricket is for gents, not for shanties.' I've always tried to be a gentleman."
"I always say, no matter what you do in life, remember one thing - it's a poor mind that cannot think twice."
