Cricket Quotes

Cricket is one of the most popular team games and in many countries, the passion for this game runs higher than religion. Because of its technique, grace and grit, cricket is also known as a gentleman’s game where strategy and mind games are more important than aggression. This sport is not simply based on the highest score. The real joy of playing and watching cricket lies in how the players outwit each other with their batting, balling and fielding skills.

Cricket has evolved a lot, previously only test cricket was played and it was a game only played in the winters, and now it is played all over the year. Then a new format of one day was introduced, which limited each side to bat for 50 over. Then the famous 20-20 format was introduced, which consisted of all the interesting properties of cricket. It is really interesting as it is like watching the highlights of a one day match because the players just try to be as aggressive as they can, as it is a short match and there is no point in wasting balls. As many of us must have heard before that cricket is a funny game. I believe it is a game which does not go according to the logic. It’s the thrill this game gives us sometimes that makes us interested in watching it. Enjoy the cricket quotes given below and gear up for an exciting match.
