Duncan Fletcher: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


What he said:

“We have got players who have scored 200s and 300s, you know, in their CVs.”

Duncan Fletcher that his Indian side has the players to pull off a miracle in the third Test at Edgbaston.The Indians were routed for 224 on the first day and it’s been a leather chase ever since in the field.

What he really meant:

“Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid and Gautam Gambhir. Can you count them out?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I wish those 200s and 300s could be added to the Indian score—at the start of each innings. Why do they have to start from zero all over?”

Gautam Gambhir: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Gautam Gambhir at Adelaide Oval

What he said:

"He is like a stressbuster.”

Gautam Gambhir can relax at the non-striker’s end with Virender Sehwag is at the other end. The aggression of Sehwag makes up for any passivity on the part of his partner.All Gambhir has to focus on is getting his eye in.

What he really meant:

“It’s a stress-free environment because we’re on the same side. I would worry if he (Sehwag) wasn’t.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Buster, I can bat like Viru.”

Scott Styris: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Chris Cairns, Scott Styris and other Canterbur...

What he said:

“Seeing Southee open the batting for Essex tonight and score 74 off 34 balls is enough to drive anyone to give up the game!”

Scott Styris is jocular about his reasons for quitting the game.

What he really meant:

“If Southee can play better cricket than me, I might as well quit.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Tim Southee is so much better than Virender Sehwag.”
