Quotes

#Quote
1The first thing is to be patient, which is probably the hardest thing to do. Don't worry if blokes are whacking you out of the park because you still have the opportunity to get him out next ball, even if it's not the same ball.
2I think when two people get together, their past is their past. Their reputations are reputations. You can only take someone the way you find them... on face value. I think that was how we were both, the way we were.
3I just play because I love playing and I try and take as many wickets as I can.
4Four hundred wickets is 400 more than I thought I'd get.
5All my coaches tell me that I have been under achieving.
