I wonder where all these enterprising young ladies were when I was scoring my hundreds and 200s

Whenever possible, bring them to me at my mills, I shall provide them a job which would offer them a permanent income. Your alms to a beggar would satisfy his requirements temporarily, but I shall provide him a permanent solution

My first recollection of seeing Vihaybhai on a cricket field goes back to 1939 during the Pentangulars.

In those days most of the players wore the Sola hat, which was khaki coloured, stiff and with a strap around the chin. In fact it was a protection against the Solar heat and bowler heat.

I also remember the match in which the Hindus beat the Muslims. Vijaybhai scored 88 not out and Vinoo Mankad made 60 odd. His technique was as close to perfection it can be.

Vijay Merchant was also one of my gurus, because when I became an opening batsman I had to learn the technique, and there was no one better than him to watch.

In those days, in the '50s, Bombay was not a concrete jungle. There was a lot of dew. It may sound unbelievable now, but the Brabourne Stadium used to be white, it had that much dew.

We had no knowledge about life in the West Indies. It certainly came as a very pleasant surprise to be there. It was a ten-day voyage.

Worst of all, we were denied the sight of Vijay Merchant, who must surely have claims to be the greatest of all Indian players.

A good captain must be a fighter; confident but not arrogant, firm but not obstinate; able to take criticism without letting it unduly disturb him, for he is sure to get it — and unfairly, too.

Despite recent sad developments, cricket will survive and remain our most noble game and I shall always remain proud of the part I played in its history and development.

During my career, I was privileged to give the public my interpretation of its character in the same way that a pianist might interpret the works of Beethoven.

Every ball went exactly where I wanted it to go until the ball that got me out.

Don Bradman (Cricketer)

I didn't know it at the time and I don't think the Englishmen knew it either. I think if they had known it they may have been generous enough to let me get four.

Don Bradman (Cricketer)

I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill.
