“I think we judge talent wrong. What do we see as talent ? I think I have made the same mistake myself. We judge talent by people’s ability to strike a cricket ball. The sweetness, the timing. That’s the only thing we see as talent. Things like determination, courage, discipline, temperament, these are also talent” (Photo | AP)

“You get an image in the first couple of years of your career, and then whether you like it or not, you are stuck with it for the rest of your life” (Photo | AP)

'The bowlers I respected or feared or rated were not the ones who gave me lip or stared at me or abused me. More the ones who, at any stage of the game, when had they had the ball in hand, they were going to be at me, and they were going to have the skill and the fitness and the ability to be aggressive.'
