What he said:


“I always believed that the day my age exceeds my batting average it would be time to consider calling time on my career.”


Ali Brown (Alistair Duncan Brown), former English cricketer, announces his retirement from county cricket (and Surrey) with a witticism. Ali is 41 and his first-class average is 42.67.


What he really meant:


“’41 out on 42’ is what I really wanted to say.”


What he definitely didn’t:


“I didn’t want to go out with my waist exceeding my batting average.”
