ICL: Indian Cricket League

Just going crazy buying up food


Who’s saying what at the 2007 cricket World Cup: “It took us nearly an hour to pay for few bottles of soft drinks, ice creams and snacks. People are just going crazy buying up food to watch the match. A win is worth the long queue.” —Sri Lanka fan Marisa de Silva stocking up on food to watch the final on TV in Colombo.

“I’m happy to walk away from the game. I feel it’s in a good state, there are a lot of good young fast bowlers coming through in Australia and I’m happy with what I’ve achieved and what the team has achieved as well.” —Glenn McGrath reaches the end of the road.

“For guys like me, who’ve been around a while this is the reason why you still play the game, to be involved in contests like this one.” —Australia skipper Ricky Ponting looking forward to the final.

“Obviously they are a very good side, but they are also humans and in 100 overs people do make mistakes and we need to capitalise on them.” —Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene.

“Just because the final is taking place here (in the Caribbean) does not mean it is any extra pressure for me than, say, my third or fourth finals, for example. Each game has its pressures and you have to deal with that.” —Umpire Steve Bucknor standing in his fifth successive World Cup final.
