    Jardine said the only true definition of cricket is "That beautiful, beatiful game that is battle and service and sport and art." He admits to stealing that from an unnamed "New Zealander."

    Confusing cricket with Dickinson there, one fancies.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    To quote Simon Doull: ...the game of life.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
