The Test Match Special Book of Cricket Quotes by Dan Waddell, Henry Blofeld

From witty sayings and wise words, to doubles entendres, and legendary moments from cricketing history, you'll find the perfect line for every occasion. I've never got to the bottom of streaking. (Jonathan Agnew). On the first day Logie decided to chance his arm and it came off. (Trevor Bailey). Bill Frindall has done a bit of mental arithmetic with a calculator. (John Arlott). Strangely, in slow motion, the ball seemed to hang in the air for even longer. (David Acfield). I'm not into caps with lots of diamonds on them, like KP. (James Anderson). How can you tell your wife you are just popping out to play a match and then not come back for five days? (Rafa Benitez on test cricket). I don't think we choked this time. We never played well enough to choke. (Craig Matthews). Flintoff starts in, his shadow beside him. Where else would it be? (Henry Blofeld). I once delivered a simple ball, which I was told, had it gone far enough, would have been considered a wide. (Lewis Carroll).
